Watching Pence I’m wondering again: what is it about people who “accept Jesus” that makes them so weirdly slickly-phony? Ideas? Comments? Here is what some (very perceptive) FB friends had to say

  The question is do Jesus-following white American evangelicals of the left or right, turn into smarmy flakes because they get “saved” or do smarmy flakes gravitate to Jesus? * Watching Mike Pence even if I knew nothing about him as he spoke at the GOP convention I’d know he was a born again evangelical. * How? *Here is what some of my Facebook friends think (and thank you all!)  but first maybe I can spot the white born-again types because there's a slick smarmy insincerity to th … [Read more...]

AS JESUS SAID: THANK YOU TRUMP, YOU ARE THE HAND THAT FINALLY RIPPED THE MASK OFF TO SHOW US THE PILE OF STEAMING GOP SHIT BENEATH

 In the end all the GOP congressional cowards will support Trump. Good! As Jesus said of the GOP, "How terrible it will be for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs that look beautiful on the outside but inside are full of dead people's bones and every kind of impurity” (Matthew 23:27). In other words according to Jesus, after the 2016 election, no one will mistake the Republicans for anything more than the assholes who created the climate of hate a … [Read more...]
