Here’s one thing I’ve noticed about Evangelicals since the 80s when I’d occasionally lend them my ear - they are self-centered and they mold their morality to the convenience of the moment and their own desires. Prosperity Doctrine for example. But, when push comes to shove there are no principles beyond we are so high and mighty full of ourselves because we’re self-certain that we have unraveled the mystery of God. And that god is there to serve us.
Screaming about Right To Life and attacking defenseless pregnant woman, while waving flags and going rah rah to Cheney/Bush’s war of profit that destroyed countless innocent lives, with Hollywood blockbuster inspired shock’n awe, without a damned second thought. >:-(
Yeah, their phenomenal hypocrisy and double-standards have been obvious for decades, but this Trump crap really brings it out.
It’ll be a eye opener seeing how many votes that man actually gets. Would love to believe he get’s blown out of the water, but unfortunately . . .
Many Evangelical Leaders Would Stick With Trump Even If He Were A Cold-Blooded Killer 10/11/2016 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelangelo-signorile/many-evangelical-leaders-would-stick-with-trump-even-if-he-were-cold-blooded-killer_b_12440108.html Donald Trump said back in January that he “could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody" and he still wouldn’t lose support. From their words and deeds in recent days, it appears that many evangelical leaders would be among the first to announce their continued allegiance if Trump did such a thing. Despite a blistering editorial today in Christianity Today, the flagship magazine of American evangelicalism, and despite noted evangelical theologian Wayne Grudem in recent days joining Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention, who has condemned Trump for a long time, most prominent evangelical leaders are sticking by the GOP nominee after the surfacing on Friday of the explosive tape that has sent his campaign into a spiral. They invoke the “we’re all sinners" argument when it suits them politically, and apparently now they’re even invoking it for a man who has bragged about engaging in sexual violence against women. The ease with which Jerry Falwell Jr., of Liberty University, the largest Christian university; Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (FRC), which has been labeled as an ant-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC); and James Dobson, founder of the equally odious Focus on the Family, almost immediately went public defending Trump was stunning even considering their often warped sense of Christian values. These are the people who crusade against the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, claiming homosexual acts and transgender identity are “immoral" and “unnatural." But they hold Trump up as a savior, and thus a paragon of morality who will in fact help them end a woman’s right to choose and overturn marriage equality via the radical judges he’s promised them he will appoint to the Supreme Court. ...
