For a (truly) disturbing look into the minds of these people, see this website by born-again right-wing conspiracy theorist Jeffrey Gridler.
He wrote this before the election, but he is still 100% on board.
A few things: These aren’t the same Evangelicals as the Dominionists (Kruz, etc.) In fact, they oppose them. But from the outside, it’s a distinction without a difference. This group is fringe, but still overlaps 80% with the more mainstream Evangelicals who support Trump.
When I explain to people that a lot of Christians think God put Trump in power to DESTROY America, or even bring about WWIII and the end of time, they think I’m joking. But this is real, and has been in process since the 1980s. This is not a tiny, disconnected group.
Since their beliefs are nuts, it makes sense that all their reasoning is nuts. For example, they are OBSESSED with ending abortion, at the same time as they pray for the world to end very soon, sending most of the world to hell. (Why bring humans into the world, especially since most won’t have a chance to get saved?)
Anyway, enjoy. One more thing: the comments at the bottom should be assembled into their own volume.
I have pointed out to Christians repeatedly that even THEY can’t agree about who is a real Christian and who isn’t, and that even among the most extreme “Bible-Based” groups, they don’t believe the others are “saved.” They always deny this, claiming to be unified, but that is bullshit as these comments show.
They are also a REALLY good illustration of why “The Bible says____” is MEANINGLESS. Here we have Christians posting Bible verse after Bible verse, to prove the others wrong. Sometimes they bold, underline and do ALL CAPS! …as if that makes their Bible verse more believable!!
<p style=“text-align: right;”>The cognitive dissonance here is scary. Especially the whole narrative that Yeah, Trump is a liar and an adulterer and probably not a Christian, but at least he’s not as horrible a person as Obama…</p>
