(Even as I type that headline, I just came off of Twitter suggesting that all that’s left for Mr. Trump to do is to shit himself and exit right…so this is me trying to redeem my own soul.)
David Gushee writes at Religion News Service:
I think we have good reason to be anxious about the erosion of the moral (and religious) ethos that once formed and constrained our expressions of the maximized liberty of our political system.
The delicate balance that the founders expected — a free people, but not utterly free, because they are shaped and constrained by the force of a powerfully religious and moral culture — is in the process of being lost.
So how about it, ‘Murica. Is there a way to recover from what Gushee calls this “carnage” of a campaign?
