Donations welcome while I write the next one.
I was going to fisk this short bit of virtue-signaling by NRO's David French, but the bulk of it merely builds on a foundation contained in the first paragraph – or, rather, the absence of that foundation.
I agree wholeheartedly with my colleague Jonah Goldberg. Social conservatives (especially Christian conservatives) should unequivocally condemn Donald Trump’s now almost-certain affair with a porn star. They should speak with the exact same level of conviction and apply the same standards that they’d apply to a Democrat caught in the same sleazy circumstances. After all, Republican adultery is every bit as repugnant as Democratic adultery.I get right on that as soon as Mr. French can reference scripture in which we Christians are commanded or even encouraged to denounce the past sins of a secular leader who was not even a Christian at the time of those sins. (And let's not forget what the Bible says about gossip many, many times.)
To help, I would humbly suggest that Mr. French review the life stories of Moses and Saul/Paul. (I certainly hope that French and others understand why I point to these two.) Re-reading and comprehending John 8:3-11 would also be in order. Also, the Parable of the Priest and the Publican; the priest in that story had the nerve to try to flash the virtue signal at God -- who wasn't having it.
Used to be that only anti-theists felt comfortable publicly perpetrating their distortions about God and about what Christians believe. Times they are a-changing.
