The Lord Hath Chosen... Donald Trump?

"Too many Christians who compare Trump to David seem to have forgotten the king who came before—and how his story has perhaps better parallels to our current age....King Saul’s rise and fall is an example of God granting his people what they want—and then making them endure many of the consequences of their own foolishness." - The Dispatch

Metaxas: “So what do you think of what’s happening now? I mean, it’s a very bizarre situation to be living in a country where some people seem to exist to undermine the president of the United States. It’s just a bizarre time for most Americans.

Graham: I believe that it’s almost a demonic power that is trying . . . 

Metaxas: I would disagree. It’s not almost demonic. You know and I know that at the heart it’s a spiritual battle.

Graham: It’s a spiritual battle (Graham then went on to tout Trump’s economic record).

They were not talking about normal political or personal opposition. They were talking about the Democrat obsession with destroying Trump because... well because he beat Hillary.

Their language (and deeper errors in moral judgment) is inappropriate regardless of what the Democrats are doing or why we think they're doing them.

A principle my mamma taught me early in life and I've worked hard to instill in my own kids (and live out in my own life) is this: "nothing wrong someone else does is ever a reason to do something wrong myself."

The close cousin is: "Nothing false someone else says is ever a reason to say something false myself."

One more variant: "Nothing exaggerated or distorted someone else says is ever a reason to say something exaggerated or distorted myself."

"Their" is Metaxas and Graham, I presume. What did they say that is so bad?
