Easton's Bible Dictionary has this to say about Manasseh, the 13th King of Judah, who sat on the throne from about 686-641 BCE: The only son and successor of Hezekiah on the throne of Judah. He was twelve years old when he began to reign (2 Kings 21:1), and he reigned fifty-five years (B.C. 698-643). Though he reigned so long, yet comparatively little is known of this king. His reign was a continuation of that of Ahaz, both in religion and national polity. He early fell under the influence of the heathen court circle, and his reign was characterized by a sad relapse into idolatry with all its vices, showing that the reformation under his father had been to a large extent only superficial (Isa. 7:10; 2 Kings 21:10-15). A systematic and persistent attempt was made, and all too successfully, to banish the worship of Jehovah out of the land. Amid this wide-spread idolatry there were not wanting, however, faithful prophets (Isaiah, Micah) who lifted up their voice in reproof and in warning. But their fidelity only aroused bitter hatred, and a period of cruel persecution against all the friends of the old religion began. Now, this just about sounds like America today! IOW, believe it or not, if Hillary Clinton and all the other Communist / Leftist / Socialist / Fellow-Traveller / Egg-Head / Radicals worshipped Ba'al Moloch... with me so far? If all the Leftists actually were closet Canaanites who worshipped Ba'al Moloch and were secretly spreading their Canaanite Ba'alist human sacraficial filth through American politics just like Jezebel did in Israel and just like Manasseh's Ba'alist advisors did to him... IF that were all true... if they were all Ba'al worshipping Canaanites who sacrificed their children by fire to Ba'al Moloch... American politics couldn't get any (A) more anti-Faith (B) more like 2 Kings 21 & 2 Chronicles 33-38.
