The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable fact at the same time it is the most intellectually resistant.
No, look at the world with real discernment. You are a good and decent Christian who I have come to admire, despite the years of your attacks against me. Trump is an anti-Christ, plain and simple. Not THE anti-Christ, of course, but one who opposes the Lord and his love. How you or others cannot see what seems so plain about his character astonishes me. Diabolical is the one word that comes to mind when I think of the president. You should too.
Yes, I am a Christian and I know it is not my place to pass judgement on those who have done wrong. That President Trump wishes to pardon these men does not in any way make him an evil person. We will all be held accountable for what we have done, we will either be rewarded or we will be punished.
I have seen the depravity of man, rumi, not just that of adults but of boys and girls. When I was a firefighter, we were dispatched to a home full of smoke. The oldest son, around 10 years old, who as the story went, was a bully, along with his sidekick, put his sister's kitten in a microwave and cooked it alive. You have no idea what that did to that family, how it shattered his parents and so thoroughly traumatized his sister. You have no idea how five experienced firefighters who have seen human tragedy up close and personal felt about that.
Your outrage over Trump pardoning these men is not an isolated emotional upheaval, it doesn't just hang on a peg all its own, it didn't come out of the blue. Rather, it is a continuation of a long festering hatred that is very un-Christian in its manifestations.
What is the count now? Three threads on this? And for what? I mean, Lord have mercy, do you really think your hostility toward President Trump is just a flash in the pan, that it is unique? Well, you go ahead and have your fits of outrage, brand the man not quite the anti-Christ, put him in league with the devil and one notch above Hitler, and while you simmer down like a serial rapist until the next opportunity for you to attack, we will bide our time and gird our hearts to deal with your next outrage.
