    Jesus called their biblical counterparts "Pharisees". Does Christianity involve adherence to dogmatic principles, or is it just a label??? As Abraham Lincoln said: "Calling a dog's tail a leg doesn't make it one."

    It is indeed a shame that the sanctity of religion is being corrupted by the stigma of hypocrisy. . . . Going to church does not ensure salvation. "You know a tree by its fruit."

    "the conservative National Review just published a spirited editorial defending Edwards against the charges.

    The editorial bears down on a point that Edwards’s lawyers are sure to make at trial: show me the money.

    “Because none of the money [for the mistress] went to the campaign,” National Review explains, “and none of the money went for campaign expenses—inasmuch as maintaining a mistress is not a campaign expense—it is difficult to see why this should be prosecuted as a campaign-finance violation.”"

    Yes the hypocracy is amazing, can you point me to any liberal media defending Trump?

    If the OP's point is that Trump is a scum bum, well, we all know that.

    However Trumpers are going to Trump.

    Considering that the Trumpers have generally trumped in elections since last fall, the lefties are not feeling so butt hurt. :)

    Oh so sad, to believe the "religious right" is even in control of the GOP, much less got Trump elected is absurd. Trump was elected as a direct push back from the "fundamental change" that Obama has pushed for 8 years. The dismal 1% yearly GDP growth. The forced purchasing of a service. The flood of third world groups who were escorted by drug and sex slave traffickers in the US. The growth of ISIS and the echoing laughter at the US who were drawing "red lines in the sand" that kept getting crossed.

    Yeah, it had nothing to do with his "Christianity" or faith, pretty sure most people have seen what happens when someone is there trying to push a faith that everyone knows they don't practice. Or seeing what kind of brainwashing a Christian can be subjected to from seeing Jerimiah Wright preach "*******N America" to Obama for 20+ years.

    The National Review article was about the charges against Edwards, not about his conduct. Trump supporters don't care about his conduct, a lot of which they knew about prior to his being elected president.

    Well, I dunno about defending trump, but MSM sure gets excited and chills and thrills run up and down their little legs anytime trump launches missiles into syria, with one of them even claiming in Jan of 17 that trump was finally acting presidential. Or something along those lines.

    MSM hates trump, but will giggle and titter when they see fireballs in the night leaving our US Navy ships heading away to kill people. One even waxed poetic as such a display.

    Hypocrisy is what it is and the OP provides a reasonable picture of it. I cannot think of a better example of corruption of faith than that of the Evangelicals and the "Religious Right". Evangelicals worship at the feet of their Republican political idols while disavowing the teachings of Jesus and Moses.

    Shady Daniels wasn't a mistress she was at best a one night stand assuming you're gullible enough to believe anything she says.

    oh and the very definition of Hypocrisy is attacking Trump for having consensual sex, while essentially ignoring charges of sexual harassment and assault against Bill Clinton, and the further character assassination of those women who came forward by Hillary Clinton. But then somehow Given the levels of hypocrisy on the left I doubt if Juanita Broderick or Paula Jones will be invited to speak at the next Me To convention.

    Laughable at best. How many times have have you defended Bill Clinton? And please politicians aren't angels and never have been. They are power seekers and they eventually makes whores of one sort or the other of even the best of them. Send an honest man to DC and if they can't corrupt him they'll destroy him by fair means or foul just for making the rest of them look bad.

    Probably true so prove it is something else other than being butthurt over your tragic landslide election losses in 2016.

    Why should we? We thought what Edwards did was wrong. But it’s very interesting how you think and very telling. You are saying you should defend someone because they are of your party. No actually we punish hours, you elect them
