Guys, come on. We know that if Lauren Boebert were rubbing the crotch of a drag queen in a library while the drag queen was grabbing Boebert’s breasts, the left would be fine with it. But you’d all be condemning it. We shouldn’t react to the left’s outrage over
Boebert should be condemned because she was acting a fool, disrupting those around her with her loud singing and vaping. it shows extream recklessness and rudeness on her part. If you read the reports through Saturday, they say nothing about groping, but now you read them and you would think she was trying to find the happy ending of beatlejuice a little bit early. Coping a feel when holding your date close while no one is looking in the dark is in no way livestreaming yourself being intimate with your loved one and then selling those videos online for money.
Thanks, Eric. You have adequately reminded me of why I rarely watch, read, or listen to news on the weekends. Ugghh.
Add Kristi Noem to the list of mistresses with Corey Lewinsky. Disgraceful
Okay, I will avoid attempting to establish my bona fides regarding the Christian faith. Yet Erick has a strong—and bilical—point here. I could relates the story Jesus told about the need to remove a log out of our own eyes before taking splinters out of someone else’s. Why bother. Then there is the need for a moral law giver throughout Scripture. Uh! Another needless attempt! To live righteously we have to accept our own sinfulness—this establishes humility. Then we must see the world as God sees it—this allows a proper understanding of the correct treatment. Yet we must demand those to whom we belong (sigh…Republicans and hopefully Conservative values) that they uphold the morality necessary to “Stand for and Support” a moral family and be able to then oppose the new progressive morality destroying our society and permeating the culture. I am commanded by God to “seek the welfare,” literally its “peace,” through my obedience in voting. I will not remain silent regarding the poor character exhibited by the current frontrunner. Yet believe it or not, he could be the best on elections day…. Let’s not confuse “best” with moral, shall we?
Well, that's too bad. I would rather oppose anti-christ polices like transgenderism, abortion up to the time of birth, sexualizing of children, CRT lies, gay marriage/adoption, attack on parent rights, open borders (drugs/human trafficking), etc. I will vote for the Republican primary winner to oppose Biden/Harris - even if it's DJT.
Actually, Jesus is my leader and I don't believe He is supportive of the democratic policies mentioned - they are actually anti-christ. We will just have to disagree on this.
So if everyone votes to carry out evil you would be happy with that. Well, enjoy explaining that during the Great Judgment.
Well, admitting that you would vote for Biden given what we have learned about the transgender, open borders, energy dependence instead of independence, abortion up to birth, high inflation, weak foreign policy, and high crime approach he has is quite amazing! What do you stand for again?
Character hasn't mattered since at least Bill Clinton and the Dems saying, "Everybody lies about sex." But Repubs are supposed to be better than that.
I'm sick of the hypocrisy/tribalism on both sides - but especially Republicans/conservatives. God's commandment , "Thou shall not commit adultery" does NOT have an exception based on your poIitical affiliation.
The only reason I'll vote for a Republican will be because their positions represent the lesser of two evils (i.e. Hillary v Trump.) - with the emphasis on evil.
For decades, the Dems have been a one-issue coalition. As long as the party supported the one issue a person cared about (LGBTQ+, abortion, Unions, etc.) the person would vote for the Dems.
The Repubs were the exact opposite. A person could agree with 9 of 10 issues of the Republican party, but if they disagreed with even one issue, they'd not vote or vote for a candidate with no chance to win as a 'protest' vote.
How's that working for us?
Why do you think you need to provide a "never Trump" perspective on all news items? I am open to the other primary candidates but Erick, if Trump wins the Republican primary, will you vote for him over Biden?
No one in Babylon.....er.....excuse me, Washington DC is listening to you when you tell them they are behaving badly, Erick. This is the crowd that's okay with Bill Clinton's abuse of power over an intern in the oval office so long as they get to abuse their power in the same way. Character no longer matters to the majority of the Republican base and until we make that a thing again, they will turn a deaf ear to your moralizing. I'm with you. I just think we're spitting into the hurricane-force wind on this one.
How about - "I don't think a former President who tried to illegally end democracy from the white house needs to be a future President"? full stop. I realize this is off topic from the morality argument of your post, but really wish some of our conservative thought leaders would just rip the bandaid off on this pretty important point regarding Trump's conduct.
I mean if we are willing to jab at the base's hero anyway with his lack of dogma on a culture wars topic why not just go full bore on the point that clearly matters the most. If a former president with a D beside his name had done a fraction of what Trump had done to attempt to illegally end democracy no doubt that you would have spent countless hours of radio time and tons of ink going through all the sordid details and how despicable it is.
Btw, it does seem like you have become more willing to take off the kids gloves when describing Trump's behavior which is much appreciated.
Right on target Eric.
I wish I could recall who wrote an article the other day pointing out that the left will hold together no matter what and the right will never give one of their own an inch when it comes to behavior. Would we all prefer a candidate, or elected official whose behavior has and is always impeccable? Of course. But should we destroy them because they don't meet the highest ideals? The porn making married woman with two kids is getting nothing but support from democrats. Republicans are ready to hang, draw and quarter one who displayed obnoxious and inappropriate behavior in public and one who has been accused. If anyone personally observed Noam in the act of adultery, speak. Otherwise, holding the tongue is a grand idea. It does not mean one approves of behavior to hold the tongue, especially when acting on accusations. I am getting rather tired of the idea that we must destroy anyone who isn't perfect, even if it means letting someone demonstrably worse win.
I struggle with these discussions. I've made no bones about how much I despise ALL politicians, with very few exceptions. That said, my personal life was a complete train wreck until I finally allowed God to steer the ship, which led me out of one marriage and into another. My wife of 16 years is God's gift to me and my "blended family" kids, and I will go to my grave believing that our origin story was orchestrated by God despite it not being couples Bible study-friendly. None of us knows what goes on behind closed doors so none of us knows why Boebert, MTG, or Noem cheated. Factually, yes, they are adultresses, and maybe they ARE narcissitic power mongers like Trump. But maybe they're just human beings attempting to navigate a marriage devoid of intimacy, the dissolution of which has infinite downstream consequences. Hard enough in the relative privacy of obscurity, but how much more so in the public eye? Yes, moral fiber matters. But so does grace, and I'm just not clear where that line is.
The tit for tat on both sides is ridiculous. Man the more life goes on, I believe the movie idiocracy was a prophecy. Both sides think the big government is going to help “us”. We need to chop it down to the feds look after the military (we know how good they do it now, but their responsibility is national defense) and social security ( if it’s even going to be around). Everything else should stay with the states since closer to what people need locally. But I’m just here till I get to go to heaven.
