Not that Epstein. The sicko Epstein.
Writing over at some website I have never heard of, a Christian pastor I’ve never heard of has this piece. The final paragraph says:
Epstein was right. Our semi-Christian sexual standards are a historical aberration. He called our bluff, and forces us to make a choice: Either we embrace Christian standards, or we create a world of Epsteins, a world where Jeffrey Epstein looks a little less monstrous – because we’ll all have become monsters.
That strikes me as pretty much correct. I, being so smart and whatnot, have said it for a long time. I said it when Billy Boy was doing his business with interns in the White House. I said it about Donald Trump and his proclivities. I said it about the gratuitous sex in TV and movies. We are sliding backward toward our historical norms about sexuality. We no longer value the societal gains we made because of Judeo-Christian values. We are in fact slouching toward Gomorrah, as one noted statesman put it.
