The Central Achievement of Donald Trump

Trump has achieved what no Democrat could ever do: Get conservative Christians to enthusiastically, if not fanatically, back a candidate who supports both abortion and gay marriage and still feel as righteous about themselves and contemptuous of their culture war enemies as when they once opposed those things. He even got them to believe they were God’s Champions of Religious LIberty as they screamed off the stage a guy who called for people to vote their conscience.

It makes you weep. Hillary is an external enemy to conservative Christians. Trump was always the graver threat as the great seducer of conservative Christians. And he has succeeded spectacularly. Not for nothing did Jesus warn “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Mt 10:28). The prostitution of conservative Christians to this dimestore anti-christ is final proof of that. They will dance entirely to his tune and he will use and discard them, as is only fitting for useful idiots.
