Why are we tolerating this, our American sickness?

A President and a Porn-Star are not condemned by the Evangelical Movement.  Our religious leaders, the self-proclaimed Right, these guardians of unborn life, seem un-enflamed, un-enraged… unashamed.

Ashamed of who “they” put into the Land’s highest office– Evangelicals supported Trump by a wide margin and still do a scandal riddled year later (by about 80%.)  Ashamed that their candidate and now “our” President, the supposed paradigm of American virtue, the “Make- America-White-Great-Again” president, is caught paying hush money to his “honey-dip,” a four time Adult Video News (AVN) award winner.  A Hall of Famer even!

Jimmy Swagger. Jim Bakker.  Gary Heart.  Names you do not recognize?  If not, it is because they all fell from Evangelical grace for– in sequential order:  a prostitute, an extra-marital affair with embezzlement to hush-up, and a mistress.  Two tele-evangelists (the Jim-Jimmy’s) and a Presidential Candidate (Mr. Heart.)

“I do not care who my politicians diddle. I only care if they can represent me and mine, all of us diverse Americans.”

Maybe in this era a mega-churches, the Evangelicals have learned forgiveness.  Money, lots and lots of it, from sinners seeking Joel Osteen divine abundance sermons will do that.  Why did Rev. Osteen not open his 16,285 seat capacity Lakewood Church during the Texas Hurricane Harvey?

Maybe as a Liberal I’m being hypocritical.  Because I do not care who my politicians diddle.  I only care if they can represent me and mine, all of us diverse Americans.

America, what has happened?  It’s as if a Kremlin gremlin has climbed into the machine of our psyche.  Or it’s just a mirror reflecting back true morals.  A fun mirror.  As mirrors do, they reflect back ourselves as opposite.  Liberals act as #metoo prudes; Conservatives act as the hear no evil, see no evil, do no evil monkeys… as libertines.

What is happening?

–Remember,

Stay informed, open-minded, and driven.
