"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...]

Donald Trump and His Angry Voters Are Furthering an Extremist Christian Agenda to replace democracy with theocracy by undermining our rights and protections from the bottom up
Unlike Muslim fundamentalists who use bullets, bombs and beheadings to enforce Sharia from the top down, Christian fundamentalists will not overthrow democracy in a military takeover that sweeps out one system (democracy) and replaces it with another (theocracy). The kinder, gentler, Christian extremist seeks to replace democracy with theocracy by undermining our rights and protections from the bottom up, one law at a time. Here is an article by my old and dear friend Mel White. It was first … [Read more...]
Here’s the best article I’ve read on the sensible journey away from the Evangelical World that Hates Our (Clearly) Queer/Trans Creator

But the overwhelming culture resisted my initiatives on racial justice and gender equality, equated voting Republican with authentic … [Read more...]

In our fuzzy American sentimental folklore Christianity was once associated with kindness. Not anymore. Evangelicals embraced Trump and Cruz. End of story.Both men are symbols of hate and stupidity in equal measure. They are to politics what the president of Gordon College is to education: a man who will be remembered for writing to President Obama to ask to be allowed to discriminate against gays in the name of religious freedom.When we hear the word evangelical now, we don't think of … [Read more...]
