Now, Absolution

Absolution: an ecclesiastical declaration of forgiveness of sins; mercy.
I might be somewhat unsual among what was once called Never Trumpers. Yes, I was once called that, like Olórin was once called Gandalf before slaying and being slain by the Balrog. I am unusual in the prayer and wish I had for Donald Trump to win and become president, to defeat Hillary Clinton.
My prayer was answered and my wish (along with 59-odd million other Americans) was answered. We now have President-elect Trump, who in his 2:30 am victory speech reached out to all of us for healing.
So I am Never Trump no longer, because the term has ceased to carry a whole lot of meaning, other than opposing the soon-to-be president. “I will be president for all Americans,” Trump said, and as an American I accept that at face value.
Now, absolution.
I do not take back anything I’ve said or written about Trump, a long history of criticism, sometimes mixed with awe. I don’t take it back any more than Trump himself takes back the ridiculous things he’s said over the campaign, and in the decades before that. But I do grant him absolution.

This winning religion is messed up. You don't have ethics or integrity. And you REALLY have gaul to parade your emotionalism in an attempt to rationalize being brain-dead. Face reality.
