Okay, so I am not exactly the biggest fan of Blompf …
“On June 21, the writer E. Jean Carroll came forward with a vivid and disturbing claim that Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s. She is the 22nd woman to allege that Trump committed acts of sexual misconduct. These claims are more extensive and more corroborated than the accusations against Bill Clinton.
It’s worth contrasting Trump, who denied Carroll’s claim (as well as his other accusers’), with Clinton because his scandals helped spur the Southern Baptist Convention in 1998 to issue its seminal “Resolution on Moral Character of Public Officials.” That document’s key statement was ominous and unequivocal: “Tolerance of serious wrong by leaders sears the conscience of the culture, spawns unrestrained immorality and lawlessness in the society, and surely results in God’s judgment.”
The relentless drumbeat of claims against Trump–combined with the clear moral declarations of the past–have caused millions of Americans to look at their evangelical fellow citizens and ask, simply: Why? …
Yet the church is acting as if it needs Trump to protect it. That’s not courageous. It’s repulsive. And so long as this fear continues, expect the church’s witness to degrade further. In seeking protection from its perceived enemies, the church has lost its way.
It’s time for evangelicals to exercise their political veto power. America’s conservative people of faith should seek a primary challenger to Trump and send a message to the GOP that it will not compromise any longer. And it should do so from a position of confidence–and faith.”
WHO CORROBORATED HER STORY?
In the last month, David French has condemned Josh Hawley’s anti-censorship bill, appeared on Charlie Sykes show on The Bulwark to say he has more in common with left-liberals than social conservatives at First Things, boasted about how he joined the military to fight in Iraq to set an example for his son, sanctimoniously condemned the “gutter right” while rising to the defense of Silicon Valley censorship. He also pretty much rolled over when Harvard blacklisted Kyle Kashuv.
The last month has shown in spades why conservative losers like David French never conserved anything and why they have to go. They have a reputation to preserve!
