<< “God uses rulers who aren’t themselves godly.” >>
In my top 5 of least favorite sayings. To me, it’s just an excuse to support anyone who happens to be aligned with your own political, economic and social interests, regardless of whether they are aligned with those normally attributed to “God.” It is commonly uttered by hypocrites like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham. Yeah yeah, I get the King David thing. Not a fan of all those Old Testament rulers who did such horrid stuff on behalf of lust, ego, and empire building.
