I think this "comparison" game has gone on quite too long. It's like the "what about" game, which is old and childish. Bill Clinton was a pig; Bill Cosby was a pig; Newt Gingrich was a pig; Dennis Hastert was a pig; Harvey Weinstein is a pig; Donald Trump is a pig. Guess what? We're all pigs. For every liberal pig that's held up as the embodiment of evil, a conservative pig comes along eventually to knock him off his pedestal, where he will reign until the next lib comes along, and so on and so on, world without end.
It's all a big, demonic distraction. We see these guys paraded across our news screens day in and day out with their lurid stories, accusations, and video tapes, and all we do is point fingers and jeer at "the other team", sincerely believing in their inherent evil and our innate sainthood. Well, here's what God thinks about us ALL:
“There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands;
there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away,
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.”
“Their throats are open graves;
their tongues practice deceit.”
“The poison of vipers is on their lips.”
“Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.”
“Their feet are swift to shed blood;
ruin and misery mark their ways,
and the way of peace they do not know.”
“There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
While he was in the Gulag, the Russian penal colony known for its cruelty and savagery, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn became a Christian and made this amazing observation about the nature of evil:
"If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
"During the life of any heart this line keeps changing place; sometimes it is squeezed one way by exuberant evil and sometimes it shifts to allow enough space for good to flourish. One and the same human being is, at various ages, under various circumstances, a totally different human being. At times he is close to being a devil, at times to sainthood. But his name doesn't change, and to that name we ascribe the whole lot, good and evil."

We rest so much easier at night knowing that the evil people are all "out there". We have these arbitrary standards of good and evil that we can manipulate at will, continually shifting the goal posts when we violate our own standards, with "everybody does it" as the usual pat, lame excuse. Like the Catholic Church, we all have lists of "Deadly Sins", sins that are unforgivable or will send one straight to hell: murder, rape, and all forms of child abuse, seem to be almost universally the worst. We think that as long as we are not guilty of THESE sins, we are "in like Flynn". "Well, at least I'm not a ____, like 'so-and-so'!" That was the thinking of the Pharisees in Jesus' time (cf." Luke 18:10-14)
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." Matthew 23:27-28
