This probably happens during every election cycle and with every candidate, but I’ve noticed this particularly this year:
Trump supporters consistently minimize their candidate’s sins (debasing women is mere “locker-room talk”) while maximizing Hillary Clinton’s sins (“demonic,” “end of America,” etc.).
And Clinton supporters minimize her sins (staying silent about the email and Benghazi scandals) while maximizing his (claiming Trump will found a police state and “lock up all the Mexicans”).
We need to see both as human beings who are deeply corrupt … but who are not beyond the reach of God’s redemptive power. Let’s neither whitewash nor demonize, no matter which candidate we favor.
And let’s do a lot more praying.
