Hey Evangelical Voters: Jesus didn’t come back but Trump did. Happy Now?

(Photo, YouTube)Eighty-one percent of white evangelicals voted for chaos. That chaos isn't going to be the result of evil intent but something far worse: incompetence and ignorance married to self-blinding ego on a dizzying scale never before seen at a presidential level.White American evangelicals gave up on Jesus coming back to set all to right… to burn gays forever, put black and brown people in their place, to melt Muslims where they stand, to lift good white people to Heaven in the “ … [Read more...]

The Disinherited: There is a reason that the white American underclass is so out of step with the rest of America: if you live in a pretend world for long enough you snap

(Photo YouTube) There is a reason that the white American underclass is so out of step with the rest of America: if you live in a pretend world for long enough you snap. The white Trump-loving underclass is uneducated. But lack of university education isn't their problem. Their problem is that they live in a fantasy world. That world was concocted by two implacable enemies of fact-based truth: evangelical Christianity and right wing mythology. And when I use the words white underclass I’m not … [Read more...]

Tarico then makes 7 suggestions in her article: "The Peculiar Role Prayer Plays for the Christian Right in Its Crusade to Make Abortion Illegal."Tarico's list brings up an interesting point not just about the politics and the hypocrisy of the religious right, but about the odd Christian belief that human justice must somehow balance G … [Read more...]

Trump Is No Aberration to Christianity, In Fact Trump Is the Perfect Christian Candidate: He Actually Represents the Worst of What Might Be Called “Deep Christianity”

(photo YouTube: Christian leaders praying for Trump to win)```````Trump is the prefect Christian candidate. Seriously. He's no aberration but the norm, at least as far as American evangelicals go when it comes to the way they read the Bible. Trump is Christian "logic" carried to a logical conclusion. ````Trump is tapping into a dangerous level of the worst of our religious tradition, and we need to recognize it.

Trump and Evangelicals: Why So Happy Together?

(Photo YouTube) "Trump didn’t just fall from the sky to become the nominee, he got (by far) the most votes in a contest in which evangelical voters provided a significant portion of voters and an even larger share of activism.

But whether they want to admit it or not, eva … [Read more...]
