Christians who complain about a lack of morality in modern American politics and government should probably remove the planks from their own eyes first. Christians stood idly by while the government usurped their role as the providers of charity; in fact, some applauded the takeover. The divorce rate among married Christian clergy is on par with the divorce rate of the general public. And individual churches ignored the needy and hurting in their own communities while evangelizing across the planet and building massive edifices in their names.
