Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

So where would Christianity Today have us go for morality?

A CT article, Trump Should Be Removed from Office published December 19th, which convicts President Trump on NO evidence only opinion, asks Christians to either remove him from office or vote him out, and offers its readers no other choice.

So where would Christianity Today have us go for morality? Who then CT, is the moral choice? Democrats? Socialists pretending to be centrist? Hollywood? The outrage culture? The media? All those would be a joke! A friend of mine once said, I don't care what he did in the past, as long as he doesn't do it today. CT gives the left wing talking points of constant lying and Twitter feed as gross misrepresentations of his character. Yet they say nothing about the lack of character of those who to the same to him. Those things which he reacts to on his twitter feed. Sure we wish he wouldn't sink to their level, but at last mention the facts that they are of low character also and whn Geroge W Bush did not sink to those levels when attacks were leveled at him, his approval ratings did sink to those levels. It is clear someone needs to stand up. The fact is, the left, and President Clinton (as we apparently all agree but no one will condemn and who still gets standing ovations from the adoring left), lowered the bar under which we now operate. So if Trump is such a morally deficient beast, then isn't everyone else? And aren't those who condemn Trump, but still applaud Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, et al just as morally deficient? And the left, who loves to criticize Christian values, also love to support them when they conveniently run against a right wing politician. The left adores Clinton for what he stands for politically and in their minds, because of that, ignore his moral failings. When the right does that with Trump, they are attacked by that same left and now a faction of the Christian right. The reason not being that Trump is morally deficient, the reason being that the media and the left disagree with what he stands for politically. If they agreed with what he stood for politically, they would support him the way they do Clinton and Obama. Obama? Yes, he lied to this country for 8 years and no one on the left, in the media or faction of the Christian right cared or called him on it! That is a moral failing and evidence that not morality, but politics is the deciding factor. And, that a pleasing demeanor is preferred over substantive policy which supports freedom of religion. Because everyone is doing it doesn't make it right, and on that I agree with Christianity Today. It would be nice if we could have a wonderful leader, i.e., Ronald Reagan, who the vast majority could support, but we don't. That genuine person is not available to us in this time. Therefore, when you are in a war, you have to fight with everything you have. Now, the right has Donald Trump and he fights back against the never ending politically based attacks from the left, the media and now a faction of the Christian right. However, the 'evidence' they use to convict Trump leaves everyone else out. By taking this position, CT is ignoring or supporting of such an attacks by the media and his opposition. This impeachment, and this CT article, is designed, as is everything else, to degrade Trump's support and allow a Democrat to defeat him in November. A socialist Democrat. Now talk about moral depravity! Talk about moral and economic destruction for the country. Talk about the loss of freedom for the faithful people of America (and by extension the world! This critique by CT, as everything else today, is short sighted, one sided and as a result not useful in any discussion of making real change and improving this country.
