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.
