To the Editor: False idol 

To the Editor: 

I watched the TV news recently with emotions alternating between horror and amusement as Republicans at the CPAC meeting rolled out a golden image of Donald Trump for the faithful to worship.  

I was immediately reminded of the biblical story of the Golden Calf. If I remember correctly, that ancient experiment in idol worshipping was considered a supreme act of apostasy – the rejection of a faith once confessed.  

It would be interesting to hear how modern Christians defend their continued support of Trump.
