Originally posted by no prophet's flag is set so...:
Integrity is a difficult thing. To say "no" when you know that it does mean you don't have a job. Knowing fully that others will sell their souls and grand parents for the right pay cheque. (I dislike the prostitute image in this and most contexts unless that previous man is also a prostitute.)

But a person also has to live with themselves. Becoming innured to it is the only way. To tell the small comforting fibs to self. That you are moderating the bad or perhaps even become a believer at least in part.

I'd say the title of "prostitute" can be equally used for many of the folks in Cheetolini's administration, male and female alike. All of the press spokespeople, certainly.

That said, you are correct - integrity is hard. But if you haven't got that, what *do* you have, at the end of the day?

We are punished by our sins, not for them.

This is why we need a Hell. (The theological one, not this board.) Sanders must confront her own corruption some day. And that confrontation will be hell.

Or Purgatory. Few, if any, people die in a state of perfect grace, with everything taken care of. We'll all have things to work on, and to heal things other people and the world did to us.

See Tolkien's short story "Leaf By Niggle" (AE-Lib). And it's surprisingly pleasant.

Blessed Gator, pray for us!
