Fire & Fury
It purports to be one salacious story after another describing what an awful, incompetent, buffoon the President of the United States is.
I could hardly sleep knowing it would be available this morning.
I neither like nor respect Donald Trump and I want to read and believe anything wicked about him.
I am a glutton for anything that feeds my contempt of him.
Sure, there are some questions about the authors track record and veracity, but who cares when your “enemy” is being drawn and quartered?
Who needs fact checking when the material suits your preconceived opinion?
Why am I writing this instead of devouring these tales?
Because I saw something sick in me that I have too often seen in others… that being a willingness, yea, a desire, to believe the very worst about people you have political or theological or philosophical disagreements with.
I saw a lack of concern with truth in favor of having my beliefs reinforced, even by falsehoods.
This book is in reality porn without pictures, stories meant to arouse and stimulate and to appeal to our basest nature.
The author admits that some of it may be fabricated.
It is unworthy of a Christian mind.
I still want to read it.
God have mercy…
