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...]

When Will the First Trump-Related Killing Happen With Evangelical’s Support as Trump “Purifies” America for God?

There will be a Trump-event related murder. It's only a matter of time. That's because Trump is following the 1930s fascist playbook. He is being successful because of the evangelicals craving for moral order. Trump-incited violence is a recurring theme at Trump events. Protesters are beaten, shoved, kicked and verbally abused with racial slurs. Trump encourages supporters to attack protesters. Trump says they should "hit back" more often, and has offered to pay legal fees if they attack prot … [Read more...]

2016 Elections and Trump/Cruz Mark the End of the American Evangelical Movement

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...]

Open letter to all students contemplating going to an evangelical college “Don’t let them ruin your life”

photo from you choose a college such as Wheaton, Gordon or Liberty University consider this: your degree will cost you dearly in terms of future opportunities. It'll be next to worthless, about as useful to you as a degree from the grand wizard of the KKK. The evangelical fundamentalist college movement is painting itself into a backward hate-filled corner. Don't let them ruin your life. On the brink of the massive defeat that the 2016 p … [Read more...]

The Witch-Hunts, Dishonesty, Victimology and Paranoia at Gordon, Wheaton (and Many other Evangelical Schools) Spells Long-Term Disaster For Christian Education in the USA

Evangelical schools are indulging in witch-hunts. They are acting on ideological imperatives and financial incentives—donors often threaten to withhold funds, and parents may refuse to send their children if the schools fail to toe the line— to initiate a new deadly conservative crackdown on faculty, staff and students like nothing since the 1950s. Sources mention how dishonest the schools have been about their motives for removing faculty and silencing dissent. Can evangelical Christian edu … [Read more...]

Pope Francis Denounces Religious Fundamentalism — Is the Pope an Atheist Who Believes in God… Like Me?

Pope Francis must have been reading my new book that extols the virtues of embracing tolerance and paradox over what I call "certainty addiction." The pope said, "Religious fundamentalism, even before it eliminates human beings by perpetrating horrendous killings, eliminates God himself, turning him into a mere ideological pretext."The pope denounced the religious fundamentalism that inspired the Paris massacres and ongoing Mideast conflicts, saying the attackers were enslaved by "deviant f … [Read more...]

Is It Time to Dump the Word “Evangelical”?

According to Wikipedia “Evangelicalism is a worldwide Protestant movement, maintaining that the essence of the gospel consists in the doctrine of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ's atonement.” The truth is something else. Let me rephrase: Evangelicalism is a worldwide Protestant movement, maintaining the essence of personality cults consisting in the doctrine of profitable empire-building in order to control mentally damaged certainty addicts.As old Schaeffer family friend and once leading … [Read more...]

The-God-Of-The-Bible’s Women-Management Plan is focused on Bodily fluids. To put it mildly HE has an Uneasy Relationship with Women! So Does Wheaton College

A Wheaton  professor asking for the pill?To put it mildly the so-called God-Of-The-Bible has an uneasy relationship with women. The other day I was trying to figure out why Wheaton College (an evangelical school) wanted to claim a "religious liberty" right to deprive women of insurance coverage for contraception. The school even went to the Supreme Court to claim that right.How to explain this?I'd just published my new book --WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, … [Read more...]
