As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Sekalow Reminds Of The Ties That Blind The Church To The Binds Of The Rich

How did the faith get twisted around into all this? 

Personal counsel for the president, Jay Sekalow, said this trial was lowering the bar for impeachment and would impair the function of this nation for centuries when what he really meant was it would lower the bar for impairing and convicting the practice of political bribery and corrupt campaign finance for centuries all of which Republicans unabashedly promote and are dependent on.

Is it any wonder they are unmoved by Trump's withholding military aid for "a favor". After so many decades utilizing campaign money for political favors they are numbed to any seriousness of the quid pro quo(bribery). To them Trump is just engaging in something they've been engaged in for years. They're "so what" to the president's quid pro quo makes perfect sense and of course admittance on national TV that they did it "so get used to it" is the clincher. In short Republicans of all people cannot be trusted or expected to advocate or judge in these matters.

And watching Sekalow try to twist truth for political expediency in service to Trump I am reminded of just what is going on between compromised religio/political operatives of the rich and the Christian church, particularly the conservative evangelical element. I would like to see someone get to the bottom of this.

If it could be unraveled and articulated it could be shown how political operatives working for the interests of the rich and powerful have with the most devious careful precision crafted out a bogus false political agenda for the Christian and religious element's in this nation and by extension for those religious elements across world.

Using a few religious issues these religio/political operatives, and we're really talking Republicans, have tried to bond Christian groups to the interests of the rich and powerful because the representatives of the rich fully understood that the higher principled morals of the religious were those that would fuel the enduring strong opposition to the corruption of the rich just as they have done down through history and throughout the New Testament. They understood that Christian justice would be the foundation of that which would oppose them just as they are aware the Lord's truth and justice Precept's are the original foundation of similar ideals found around the world.

They also understood that loyalties of religious groups once crafted out and established would be enduring.

The sell off of the Christian evangelical church to a craven and corrupt president not to mention it's far too long adhesion to corrupted politics is so way not worth it and in fact is perilously dangerous to the church's children's children that will have to, if not sooner than later, bear the burden of today's high profile evangelical leaders that so criticality damage the future of the Christian witness for those that follow.

What's most frustrating is to see this significant faction of Christianity, in part my faction, tied into attempts to oppose at every turn the reform of money bought off campaign financing with it's bought off politicians that shame our nation.

What are we doing tied into this service to the rich and powerful when we should be focused on the favor of the many souled broader people? How could we be so blind and where did we come by this stoney heart? Are we not about souls first over the lock step demands of the well monied?
Yes we are. Of course we are. That's the direction we must move, toward love for the people once again and with much prayer we just might not do it the hard way.
