A Mess Of Politics
>In a shocking reversal, white evangelicals have gone from being the least likely to the most likely group to agree that a candidate’s personal immorality has no bearing on his performance in public office. Today, in fact, they are more likely than Americans who claim no religious affiliation at all to say such a moral bifurcation is possible.<
This is why so many Americans are turning away from all organized religion. The evangelicals have so corrupted their formally Christian faith into a crass political organization that young people all over America are thinking, "If that's religion, I don't want any!"
Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank and rose and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
For a mess of pottage, right wing "Christians" have sold their birthright.
