For a start he's just like their preachers and leaders: a comforting fraud who holds out hope of winning life's lottery.According to a new Pew poll an astonishing four fi … [Read more...]
The key bulwark of faith-based Trumpism is the prosperity gospel: To the evangelicals (both right and left) lying and money are the real “gospel” so “He’s one of us!”

Today's religious world (Christian/Islamic/Jewish/Hindu-nationalist et al) thrives on private "facts." Were you home "schooled?" Do you think Donald Trump is smart? Did you go to a Christian "college" or other type of Madrasa? Are you the the type of Jew or Muslim who feels God "gave" you the so-called Holy Land? Do you believe that George W. Bush was a good president or that it's wrong to sit next to a woman on a plane? Do you believe in a literal heaven or hell or that God wants you to cut off … [Read more...]

Evangelicals say climate c … [Read more...]
