Trump and the ‘Left Behind’ Evangelicals: How They Were Prepared To Vote for a Fool and (Maybe) Destroy the World
Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye’s Left Behind series of sixteen novels represents everything that is most deranged about American religion. To understand why Trump became president -- with 81 percent of the white evangelical vote -- you have to understand the importance of these novels and all they represent.Trump didn’t just fall from the sky to become the nominee. White evangelicals made him president. And they have a lot in common with Trump. It's no accident he wound up as the "G … [Read more...]

As Trump melds TV-watching with Tweeting, in his warped flow of media-addled consciousness, he is the perfect example how our TV-addicted culture has now morphed into the tech-addicted culture of alt-"facts."Mental health experts have claimed the President is 'paranoid and delusional' and say it's their 'ethical responsibility' to warn the American public. If he's crazy, what drove him nuts? I think several things may have: money, nasty racist parents, his warped genetic template... but in … [Read more...]

Trump is a symptom. We’re losing our souls. Silicon Valley billionaires think they will live forever by downloading their consciousness to computers. Evangelicals are waiting for Jesus. What all agree on is that our true redeemer these days is Ayn Rand and the cult of money, power and greed. Selfishness and anti-human behavior is the norm. A passenger is mugged on United; a fraud is elected “president”; the rich get richer everyone else loses leg room so to speak, and has to pay to check a bag. T … [Read more...]
