These are the kinds of things which disqualify ttaf from any serious consideration or pretense to the title of “God’s Anointed“, as the evangelical right has christened him in an idolatrous orgiastic frenzy of drunken power preservation.
Can someone have a horrible background and then have a Road To Damascus experience and become justified?
HOWEVER: When this is genuine, we ALWAYS see a degree of honesty and authenticity and congruence that results in a complete OWNING of one’s past, a transparent willingness to completely take responsibility for it, and not one scintilla of seeking to cover it up.
We see NONE of that with ttaf.
ttaf supporter: quite simply, you support a monster (bad enough), and you do it in the Name of Jesus (far worse).
