Why we should not idolize "bad people"?

Charles Manson was considered a "bad person". His followers ended up in prison for life. They knew he was "evil" but they followed him anyway. What were they looking for?

Ted Bundy was an evil person but people trusted him enough to get in a car alone with him and ended up dead.

John Wayne Gacy was a clown. People ended up buried under his floor.

Donald John Trump is a bad person. It is no secret that he has done some evil deeds. Yet, he has his followers. If they think there is not a price for such decisions, they are sadly mistaken.

History tells us that supporters of evil people end up either complicit in their crimes or dead. There is no escape.

They know Donald Trump is a bad person. Yet, they are able to rationalize that political power or greed are acceptable reasons for supporting evil. They will live with their decision for the rest of their lives.

1. For millenia, religion was supposed to suppress (control) such behavior...

At least that is what we were told. Of course, now, some enable such behavior in the name of religion.

2. They worship the golden calf...

Money and power is more important than saving their soul.
