Money or Jesus. (The Ends and the Means)

Those Republicans who subscribe to the Dominionist suicide cult are beyond reach. They should NEVER have been allowed to rest in seats of corporal power.

To those Republicans for whom their bottom line is paramount.. Has it really come down to this? Are you willing to sacrifice the Great Experiment that is America for the pockets of yourselves and those who are already rich beyond all imagination?

Is our post-tribal hope for the world coming to an end? And you're OK with that?

We must finally have that HONEST discussion with you. Does the End Justify the Means?

1. Yes, they are willing to make that sacrifice.

The question is, do they want to be a Congressman or do they want to do the job of a Congressman. There is a difference.

Some of them know the stuff they vote for is bullshit. Others believe it. Its the ones who know its bullshit and go along for the ride and the paycheck that are despicable.

2. What I find most profoundly distressing is

what it portends for the future.

America's founding documents outline a way forward in a world where people of all faiths, cultures, races and backgrounds can coexist.

I see no other bulwark against a return to bloody annialistic tribalism.

3. To most of the 4,000 Christian Church variants in US, Jesus is the means to acquire wealth & power.

4. Anyone can start a "church"..

The total number of PEOPLE so infected is a more useful metric.

Not sure of that works.

8. The Fundie Christians who have attached themselves to Trump

are Dominionists.

Those who aren't Dominionists are corrupt.

7. Republicans can start the Church of the Almighty Dollar

and then turn around and claim Jesus would favor the rich over the poor--totally contrary to Christ's actual teachings.

Wait a minute; that's exactly what some of them did, only they call it "prosperity theology."
