“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.” A quote attributed to Aristotle. Or to put it another way for the bible believing population of America, “He who walks with integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will become known.”Proverbs 10:9
Perhaps the most lamentable part of the U.S. election 2016 is the death of character. The PRRI, a non profit research group recently showed startling results with regards to the American public’s view on character in the Oval Office.
To anyone who follows politics it is amazing to see white evangelicals, for so long the self proclaimed defenders of family and morality, suddenly the most accepting of immorality within a nation’s leader.
That is perhaps, the most crucial note. It is not that they have slowly become more accepting, it is that their entire view of character has changed because of a Presidential nominee for their party. This in no way defends Clinton, or the democrats supporting Clinton. As the most recent statement from Comey, and Hillary’s response to it has shown, she also lacks in character and morality.
Until recently it was considered normal for public figures to apologize for their indiscretions. Now, in the final days of a Presidential campaign, Clinton insults the messenger, Trump believes he is above repentance and the American people accept it. Perhaps we really will get what we deserve.
