The Terrifying Truth about the USA (And All of Us) That Trump’s Rise to Power Confirms and What to Do about It

Before Trump became president there was room for debate about what and who we Americans really are. Not anymore. We know ourselves now because Trump is our mirror.Before Trump became president there was room for charity when it came to considering who white evangelicals might be; how enlightened the “New South” might be; who and what the Republican Party is: the collective brain power of our country; the value of internet connectivity and disruption: the level of optimism about our future tha … [Read more...]

As we watch Trump abuse and debase the office of president we see a spiritual problem unfolding: the loss of the American soul.

In Calvinism, the theological cult of an angry God in which I was raised, humans are created by a God who like Trump, has determined to give them only the illusion of free will. And this God never intends to save them all or even most of them. Most are mere pawns to fuel his fires of hell for eternity-- the Calvinists love to quote St. Paul, who calls them “vessels of wrath”. Trump seems to worship no one but himself. But the angry selfish God of Calvin is waiting for him if Trump ever wants a go … [Read more...]

White evangelicals love Trump because he's delivering what his core constituency craves: the real possibility of a white supremacist male-dominated Christian theocracy. Judging by Trump's first 100 days he's off to a resoundingly failed legislative start. Trump is however a resounding success at one thing: he's delivering for the religious right.  *One of the most extreme of the religious right leaders is Jerry Falwell Jr., the Liberty U college president. He's the son of an old friend of … [Read more...]

Did Trump Organize the Fyre Festival — A Disastrous Failed Luxury “Music Event” — or did the Event’s “Organizer” Billy Mcfarland Become President of the USA?

Take the Fyre Festival -- the disastrous failed luxury “Music Event” story about disappointed rich brat music festival goers -- and the "presidency" of rich brat Donald Trump... and merge them. Here's an oddly entertaining -- and scary -- thought experiment The Trump/Fyre Festival merger (below) is a parable of American decline, hubris and fake "values" that wove money, greed, and a lack of tactile connection to reality, into one bizarre apocalyptic tapestry.I've taken excerpts from a sto … [Read more...]
