GOP BARGAIN WITH "THE DEVIL"?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 8, 2017

         IN GENESIS WE READ HOW ESAU SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT TO HIS BROTHER FOR A BOWL OF SOUP.

         IN THE LITERARY CLASSIC, FAUST IS DISSATISFIED WITH HIS LIFE SO HE SELLS HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL IN EXCHANGE FOR UNLIMITED KNOWLEDGE AND WORLDLY PLEASURES.

         AS CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS CLEAN HOUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL HARASSERS, PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MAY BE MAKING A DEAL SIMILAR TO ESAU AND FAUST. THE PRESIDENT AND THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE THIS WEEK GAVE THEIR FULL ENDORSEMENT – AND CAMPAIGN CASH – TO ROY MOORE IN HIS SENATE RUNOFF RACE AGAINST DEMOCRAT DEAN JONES.

         SUPPORTERS OF MOORE SAY HE IS PRO-LIFE AND JONES IS NOT, AND THAT IS A LITMUS TEST FOR MANY. BUT A MOORE VICTORY WILL NOT AFFECT ABORTIONS IN AMERICA, WHICH ARE DECLINING THANKS IN PART TO THE EXCELLENT WORK PERFORMED BY PREGNANCY HELP CENTERS.

         THE LEFT PLANS TO COME AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP, USING HIS SEXUAL HARRASSMENT ACCUSERS TO GAIN TRACTION IN NEXT YEAR’S CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS.

         ARE REPUBLICANS AND ESPECIALLY EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS, WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO STAND FOR FAMILY VALUES, WILLING TO MAKE THIS KIND OF BARGAIN TO WIN A SENATE SEAT? JUST ASKING. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
