Woe to those who call evil good and good evil ...

So let me see if I've got this straight?

Patriotism is bad but Islamism is good.
Christianity is bad but Homosexuality is good.
Jews are bad but Hamas and Hezbollah are good.
Immigration and Customs is bad but Human Trafficking is good.
President Trump is bad but the likes of Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Cory Booker, Keith Ellison and Kamala Harris are good.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is bad but Louis Farrakhan is good.
Law abiding White People are bad but Black criminals are good.
Guns for protection are bad but legalizing recreational marijuana to get high is good.
Building a wall to protect the United States is bad but the Great Wall of China is good.
Upholding and Protecting the US Constitution is bad but a One World Government is good.
Wealthy people who worked hard for what they have are bad but people who refuse to work and want welfare are good.
Standing up for Liberty and Freedom is bad but deleting 30,000 emails is good.
Hiring Loyal and Trustworthy people is bad but reporting things in the media that aren't true is good.

Isaiah 5:20,24 - Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!  Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, And the flame consumes the chaff, So their root will be as rottenness, And their blossom will ascend like dust; Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Back in the 1820's a man by the name of Albert Barnes wrote this about that passage:

The sin which is reprobated here is that of “perverting and confounding” things, especially the distinctions of morality and religion. They prefer erroneous and fake doctrines to the true; they prefer an evil to an upright course of conduct.

“Darkness” in the Scriptures, is the emblem of ignorance, error, false doctrine, crime. Light denotes truth, knowledge, piety.

“Bitter and bitterness” are often used to denote “sin;” see the note at Acts 8:23; also Romans 3:14; Ephesians 4:31; Hebrews 12:15; Jeremiah 2:19; Jeremiah 4:18. The meaning here does not differ from that expressed in the other parts of the verse, except that there is “implied” the additional idea that sin “is” bitter; and that virtue, or holiness, is sweet: that is, that the one is attended with painful consequences, and the other with pleasure.

Taken from Albert Barnes "Commentary on Isaiah 5:20".
"Barnes' Notes on the New Testament".

This is Biblical Prophesy being unfolded right before our eyes.
Sure, people have always looked to justify their filth, but what's happening today is ridiculous.

Did I leave something out???

If it's good I'll add it to the list! (or is it bad?)  :P
