End of moral authority

By THE BALTIMORE SUN

This article was published December 10, 2017 at 1:50 a.m.

There was a time when many in the Republican establishment were horrified by their party's Senate nominee in Alabama, particularly by his well-documented sexual relationships with girls as young as 14 years old. Dozens of prominent GOP leaders spoke out about it. "I believe the women, yes," was how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell summarized the feelings within his party. Well, that era of propriety, with conformity to decent standards of behavior and respect for young women, is now a relic of mid-November.

No problem. These Christians will just continue to wrap themselves in fables of Jesus - himself a semi-mythical product of questionable sexual contact with a young girl - and continue in their self-proclaimed righteousness where the holy end always justifies the obscene means.

Dang Boltar, you may get as much response from the haters as does JB.

There is no hate quite like pious hate, TimberTopper, but the superstitious zealots only caricature their own ostensible piety when they offer anything but love in response to mere words.

Yea, I pretty much ignore Boltar's comments in here. Even reformed Christians don't seem to fit his view of humanity.

By commenting on ignoring my comments, you demonstrate a failure to ignore my comments, RBear. Please try harder to ignore me. I don't mind.

Boltar, move along. I was commenting on TT's comment. How is that hard to understand?

You continue to fail to ignore my comments, RBear. Need the last word much?

The Christian demographic has given up leading by example in favor of political expediency. They are certainly welcome to do so, but to do so and to continue to claim the moral high ground is blatant hypocrisy.

Please try to distinguish between far right Christians and other Christians. We are not all the same. I know many liberal Christian activists.

Thanks PM. I think that gets lost in the conversation.
