Yet, the evangelicals still adore him

You cannot make this stuff up. Trump’s New York pastor has reported that not only did #BLOTUS never “opt in” for Bible Study…Trump never entered the church in the five years he was his pastor.

But, he is still adored and, dare I say, worshiped by right-wing evangelicals and republicans who loudly proclaim their love for the gospel. Go figure…

a rather novel idea

For all the evangelical right who still have the audacity to support Trump while calling themselves disciples of Christ, this hopefully will show you how far from being faithful followers you really are. Trump’s values are diametrically opposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

You can follow one or the other…not both. Your choice is clear as to where your values truly are.

Holy Refugees

"That Makes Us Refugees, Right?" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

When Mary and Joseph fled to protect the life of their son,  Jesus, they became refugees. Unless I am sadly mistaken that makes Jesus a refugee.

How is it then that so many Evangelical Christians worship a refugee on Sunday, but despise refugees the rest of the week? Am I missing something here? Or, is there a true disconnect with what so many of us profess and what we really believe?

celebrating Fathers Day Trump style

JESUS! What the hell has happened to Our Country....What’s happened to us as Americans....What’s happened to us that we stand by and watch a Horrible Human Being Destroy Everything we hold Dear as a Nation. This is wrong on every level and we All should be Ashamed. *American Concentration Camps For Children*

I do not give a damn what laws are on the books. Anyone not condemning such treatment of those seeking protection and asylum in our country is complicit with such blatant hatred and racism.

Trump’s greatness is the greatness of Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Russia, or any other dictator you care to name. There’s a vast difference between greatness and evil. And perpetrating evil never leads to greatness…never.

giving Christ a bad name

This really impacted me.

Gandhi has the truth of it. The Christ portrayed in the Gospels is full of love and grace. He is compassion and mercy incarnate.

There is little, if any, commonality with the sometimes rabid evangelicals claiming to follow Him and speak in His name. Ugly Evangelicals is a generalization, yet it has become far too accurate in describing so many who profess to be disciples of Jesus.

It is sad when Christians give Christ a bad name. But, isn’t that where we have now arrived?

a new saint for white evangelicals?

There seems to be absolutely no limit for Trump’s base. This is especially true for the white evangelicals.

This says far more about evangelical Christianity in our country than it does about the lying sleazebag in the offal office, but it does raise a couple profound theological questions.

Is Stormy Daniels going to be the new saint of the religious right? Is there any connection between white evangelicals and the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Maybe someone could introduce them to the New Testament.
