The rot in the far right Evangelical mind
The text below explains why we are stunned by the far right "So What?" Christian Evangelicals and their situational morality.
Adultery and lying is acceptable to them. As long as the lying isn't under oath and as long as the adultery is only between Trump and his non-Russian mistresses, -- it's no big deal and no one else's business.
"Why should Trump lose the presidency over such trivial matters," is their thinking. Since there's nothing illegal about adultery or lying, the "So What?" Xtian Evangelicals are just peachy with Trump's behaviors.
They've chosen to ignore the fact that a Playboy bunny/Playmate was also having a 10-month affair with President Horn Dog just after his 3rd wife gave birth to his 5th child during his spanky-sexy time with Stormy Daniels.
Because none of those adulteries are illegal, the "So What?" Xtian Evangelicals are fine with Trump's alley-cat antics. However, when Bill Clinton was president and his bimbo eruptions and infidelities became public knowledge, those same people were apoplectic over Clinton's sordid and salacious life, and they denounced his promiscuous actions as a horrid example for America's youth. "What will we tell the children!?" they lamented.
Today, those same horrified Xtians dismiss President Spanky's priapic frolics by claiming he was a Democrat during the time of his adulteries. Their thinking -- or rather situational justification -- is that when he became a member (!) of the GOP, he stopped his chronic surrender to satyriasis, and how he behaved and the payoffs to his mistresses are of no consequence, because now he's a Republican, and Jesus doesn't mind that he broke his marital vows, lied, and cheated on his wives time and time and time again. Amen.
Here's the thing. It's not just the fact that President Tightie Whities was being spanked and shagged by Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, and who knows who else. What the Situational Morality Xtians ignore is the possibly illegal contribution of $130,000 to Stormy during the 2016 campaign that may put President Hot Rod in legal jeopardy.
I wonder how these hypocrites will dismiss that.
Here they are convincing themselves that President Spanky's a good man because none of his adulteries and lying about them (unless under oath) are illegal.
Here's the rot in the far right Evangelical mind and what they're telling their children:
"It's okay to cheat on your spouses and to lie about anything AS LONG AS IT'S NOT ILLEGAL and as long as you're a card-carrying member of the GOP! Got that, kiddies? Now go back and read your Bibles!"
Regular readers of P.E. will figure out where this tortuous excuse-making post came from. I refuse to link to it.
The question they ask then is: WHAT'S THE BIG WOOP?
The answer is that people with even the smallest amount of morality and decency would find a man as devoid of probity and character as President Hanky-Spanky thoroughly repulsive and rotten to his debauched core.
And that, Dear Readers, is the POTUS that they support and admire.
