Why are American politicians trying to defend something that does not exist? The evidence of criminal intent and low character is overwhelming. The support for bigotry, the exposure of vulnerable people (especially children) to violence was enough for Yahweh to trash Jerusalem and the temple. Why are intelligent and conscientious people lining up behind the agenda of a white nationalist, a neo-Nazi, a misogynist, neo-confederate, and a host of overnight believers? There is little value attached to character that appreciates truth in the model of Christ of Nazareth vs scribes, elders, and priests
The brattish behaviour of the party hijacked by the gloating bigot in the White House leaves no abomination untested. They – in the person of Gaetz, Collins, Jordan – are having a feast, mutilating the truth and erecting flimsy walls to hide the stupour that covers the nation just like their sages and pastors have been doing for centuries.
Baloney is a word used by the counsel for the president’s party, Steve Castor at the impeachment hearing of December 9. The soundbyte that potus45 has admirable character traits is a dried leaf. This juncture of American history ranks with Isaiah’s observation of Israel-Judah on two occasions.
Worse than farm animals
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel does not know, my people does not consider.
Filth replaces fidelity
In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, to the residue of his people, And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate. But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment. For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.
