On second thought, DO kink shame Trump

If you've been following the news recently, you might have heard that our president-elect has been accused of participating in what some would consider some pretty fringe sexual proclivities.  (Via Buzzfeed. See page 2)

Obviously, hilarity has ensued. However, I've seen some push back from liberal and libertarian circles saying that it's just as wrong to kink shame Trump for as it is to do so to anyone else. i.e. a "They came for the furries, and I did not speak up because I was not a furry. They came for the Donald, and I did not speak up because I don't like that guy specifically. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak up." kind of thing

While I can see the argument there, I'm gonna disagree overall. Here's why: Trump was elected largely on the strength of the evangelical Christian vote. Falwell, Dobson, and others said that he's the best person to lead this country in a Christian, God-honoring direction.

They need to be held accountable for that recommendation. When their candidate acts in defiance of the standards they say we should all be following, their hypocrisy needs to be pointed out.

Government corruption is bad. I'm not a fan of immorality in general. But Christian hypocrisy - especially large-scale, unrepentant hypocrisy - is something I'm not gonna tolerate.
