Outside the universal problems and implications of authority worship I have is that so long as one is in a position of popularity, status, hero-ship or authority, they can have all the boundaries they want, all the discernment they want, and all the quirks they have. They are allowed to have flaws. In fact, their flaws are celebrated. If they hurt someone’s feelings, well there’s a justification for that. They get away with the very things average people cannot get away with. I have a HUGE HUGE problem with this.
I look forward to the day the worshiped are treated as equals to the average folk. I personally don’t kiss anyone’s butt. I give people the very respect they earned. I get to have my discernment and my boundaries in spite of it not being cool.
