You have to let it roll off your tongue: Founded as the Church of Slaveholders in 1845, the Southern Baptist Convention today forms the largest Protestant denomination in the United States of America. If there was a government-functioning legal system in the US, this Baptist Sect in the South would have been banned as a racist organization long ago.
That the rule of law is seriously lacking in this country is evidenced by the unwillingness to look into the true background of January 6, especially among most Republican members of Congress, who publicly place themselves above the law without being bothered in the least for it. One would not even think such a scenario possible in a true legal system – but that is the way things are.
On a very similar level, today there are business-oriented leaders as successors of slave drivers in this Southern Baptist Sect, adapted to modern times only to an extremely limited extent, who would prefer to impose on society their own ideas on the subject of abortion. The brazenness of hypocrites and agitators in the name of their God knows no bounds: Those who should be hiding from shame for moral reasons open their mouths the widest. Their perversity, including the danger especially for adolescents being exposed to extreme pathological ideologies, can only function because nobody seriously intervenes against it. On the contrary, everything the tax evaders say falls on open ears and wallets.
What is most frightening is the extent of stupefaction of the people. This is the pathetic contribution of the “Christian” die-hards, political arsonists and Trump-supporters, who for reasons of self-interest and greed of power are primarily responsible that society in their country is drifting further and further apart and will probably never find peace.
