It is a truth universally acknowledged that Donald Trump openly incited the Insurrection at the United States Capitol on January 6.
And for that, he was impeached, for the second time, only Republicans in the Senate (except for Mitt Romney and six other Senate Republicans, including Nebraska’s Ben Sasse) said he never done it.
At that time, Trump was living in the Peoples’ White House.
Yesterday the House (including no fewer than thirty-five of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s Republicans) voted overwhelmingly to create a bipartisan January 6 Commission to investigave the Facts.
But, as we’ve said in these pages many times, Kentucky’s senior senator, Mitch McConnell, has a strangehold on the Senate, and all signs point to the fifty Republicans in the Senate voting against the creation of the bipartisan January 6 commission (https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/20/politics/senate-vote-republicans-january-6-commission/index.html).
Just as McConnell controls the Senate, Donald Trump controls his Republican Party.
McConnell, a child of the South, is a Southern Baptist.
Given that Truth is the issue here, we asked our Chief Theological Reporter, associate solitary reporter Jim Bob Hobarto, and the always moderate Moderator of the Unitarian Universalist Association, Lewis Thompson III, to have a four minute chat with Rev. J.D. Greear, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention, for the soul purpose of asking him if he has spoken to McConnell about McConnell’s strident opposition to seeking the truth about his hero, Donald Trump.
It took Hobarto and Thompson only four minutes to remind Greear of the dialogue between Pilate and Jesus in John 18:33-40, in which Pilate, before having Jesus flogged, asked Jesus, “What is truth?"
Hobarto and Thompson just texted us to tell us that reverend Greear told them, “Mitch just told me to mind my own business."
