Of all of the splinter groups that have united to support Donald Trump, the KKK and the Nazis, reprehensible as they are, do not compare to the evangelical wing nuts. These people left behind all logic and common sense years ago when they began demanding that creationism be taught in schools and that the earth was only 6,000 years old. They were already hopelessly out of touch, but when Trump came onto the scene, the situation magnified into indescribable absurdity.

The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group spearheaded by Rick Wilson, George Conway, Steve Schmidt and John Weaver, compiled this hilarious mash up of Trump with his favorite sect of groupies, the evangelicals. I honestly don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

It’s nothing short of tragic that the evangelism preached by Billy Graham back in the day, which was basically a harmless back-to-the-Bible kind of a morality, has morphed into the prosperity consciousness scam of the 21st Century, which is the most immoral scam ever pulled, let alone by religious people. Their patron saint is not Jesus, it is P.T. Barnum, for only by utilizing his holy edict, “There’s a sucker born every minute,” are these people able to survive and prosper. Fear and idiocy are the twin pole stars by which the evangelicals navigate the seas of life, not love and truth, which are supposed to be the bedrock of the Christian church. It is little wonder that fewer young people than ever before are identifying as “Christian” when this is the picture they see associated with that label. if these are the people who are going to be in heaven, I’ll take my chances in Hell — with the likes of Justin Trudeau, why not?

“The 1950s were a time of religious revival. Prodded by the Cold War struggle against “godless Communism” and an active movement to engender piety, Americans filled the nation’s pews. Church membership rose from 49 percent in 1940 to 69 percent in 1960.” WaPo 2/28/18 President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Rev. Billy Graham gave us the above. In 1956 “In God We Trust” became the national motto. The Republicans have always known that religion was the best weapon against democracy and the U.S. Constitution. I know the civil rights movement would not have come about but for black churches, but as far… Read more »

We need separation of church and state and a re-emergence of science in schools and politics ASAP.

Per the one evangelical who is incompletely quoted in the political ad anyway. No reputable evangelical pastor views Romans 13 as giving a president such sweeping powers. Here is the Romans 13 reference in full: “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who… Read more »

They don’t know how to study it anyway: they’re reading a few books in the OT and mostly Paul in the NT, and they assume that it should be taken literally and as if it were all intended to apply to us, when it was written for people in the 1st century CE who were under the Roman rule of law – a very different set of assumptions.

The human nature stuff usually has universal application, but you are correct that they tend to over-analogize sentiments addressed to a people in very different circumstances.
