By now, you know about a bit of a kerfluffle: it seems the Grand Nagus said “goddamn”. Twice. And conservative christians lost their minds over it.
The fact that kids are being kept in cages? Nothing.
“Grab ’em by the pussy”? Locker room talk.
His claim that he could murder someone and not lose voters? Ignored.
Paying hush money to an adult film star? Fake news.
The fact that he’s been married multiple times? Well, Jesus forgives.
No, it was his usage of words that caused an uproar. Words.
The hypocrisy astounds. But it doesn’t surprise me. It also pisses me off. Because it’s these same people, these same christians, who scream and rant and howl and holler about morals and values and principles and all of that other rot, as if they are the only ones who have any inkling about them. When it comes to the Grand Nagus’ many “moral failures”, these christians turn a blind eye, mutter things about how god uses less than ideal people for his great and glorious plan, and pretend that the Nagus actually gives half a damn about anything other than himself. But the moment the Nagus says the big bad wordy dirty, these same people are shrieking that he has to do better.
Because saying such awful things might give the baby Jesus a sad. We can’t have that, can we?
