an open letter to millennials about this election from an old guy who actually likes you

 You are a betrayed generation. Frivolous divorce rocked your world as too many parents gave up on themselves and you. Your family may have been stable but too many weren't. Too many people were deprived of happiness found in unconditional love. Instead of education that deepens the soul you were herded into crap schools that are designed to turn out workers for corporations not complete people and open doors. You've been lied to. Life is not about career success but the embrace of just … [Read more...]

Trump and the Evangelicals are now One and the Same– Literally. To the Evangelicals America’s Gays, Blacks, Hispanics and Women are a “Strong-Willed” Child in Need of Breaking and if Need be– Killing

(Photo queerty.com/YouTube)An old friend of mine Gary Bauer -- we worked together on the "pro-life" circuit before I fled the religious right -- president of American Values --  endorsed Trump in his address to the Values Voters Summit in Washington: This country is the equivalent of that hijacked plane right now. We’re headed to a disaster, unless we can get control of the cockpit again.... Ladies and gentlemen, this is a Flight 93 election. This may be our last shot. It’s time to roll. It’ … [Read more...]


(Photos YouTube) In the 1970s and 1980s when my dad (Francis Schaeffer) and I helped start the religious right and all out culture war you could have said one thing about "our" people: we prided ourselves on being God-n'-country types. Not any more. Today's evangelicals are voting for a traitor in bed with an anti-American fascist thug aiming nukes at your town. How things changed! So what happened to make American evangelical "patriots" fall in love with a murdering hate-filled thug like … [Read more...]

Here’s the Best Article I’ve Read on Just Why and How Evangelicals Can Deny Everything They Say they believe and Support the Ultimate Anti-Jesus Candidate: Trump

 "According to the Pew Research Center, 78 percent of white evangelical voters say they would vote for Trump if the election were held today. Trump is now armed with an evangelical executive advisory board, that includes James Dobson, former president of Focus on the Family, and Richard Land, the former president of the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission. Both condemn homosexuality, oppose the distribution of pornography and neither seems likely to endorse a candidate … [Read more...]

White Christian America sees Donald Trump as their modern Moses

 "White Christian America sees Donald Trump as their modern Moses" writes Steven Rosenfeld in an important AlterNet article: "Threatened to the Core by Fading Power and Demographics, White Christian America is Going All in on Trump."That’s the takeaway of pollsters who specialize in tracking religion and American life and were initially startled as Trump beat a handful of preachers or their sons in the early primaries, namely Scott Walker and Ted Cruz. It’s what’s behind new polls fin … [Read more...]

Did Jerry Falwell Jr Watch the Multiple and Disgusting Howard Stern/Trump Interviews (or Know that Trump is accused of Child rape) BEFORE Endorsing Him?

(YouTube photo)In the 1980s when I was myself in the religious right I preached from Jerry Falwell's pulpit. I preached on family values. My how times have changed! Trump was endorsed by Jerry Falwell's son. Trump represents a specific modern sexual predator personality type. Trump's proclamation: “Women, you have to treat ‘em like shit,” makes me ask: Did Jerry Falwell Jr. and all those other evangelicals who back Trump endorse him because they hate women too? ...Or are Falwell and company j … [Read more...]
