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!”

(AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)(photo www.rollingstone.com)Evangelical Christianity in America became a get-rich-quick scheme long ago. So it's no wonder that millions of prosperity gospel-following downtrodden white evangelicals who forgot to start churches of their own (and get rich) see Trump as one of their own. 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...]
