White Evangelical Hypocrites Aren’t Bothered When Trump Curses

It’s not surprising that a functional illiterate like Donald Trump has a penchant for using 4-letter words, you don’t have to consult a thesaurus when the stable genius is delivering a stump speech. Any middle school student can understand his speeches and appreciates his frequent use of profane language.

By all accounts Trump curses like a sailor on crack in private, and in public he can’t help himself from uttering obscenities, but lately his use of coarse language in public has increased, especially the use of “bullshit.”

During a recent speech to the National Association of Realtors in which Trump denied being in conflict with his advisers over Iran, he accused the media of making up sources for its reporting.

“There is no source, the person doesn’t exist, the person’s not alive. It’s bullshit, OK. It’s bullshit.”

The use of the swearword wasn’t s slip of the tongue, he repeated the epithet twice for emphasis.

There hasn’t been any outrage over Trump’s predilection for cursing from Republican leaders, even from ones who make a fetish out of “family values”.

Let me call bullshit on the hypocrisy of the GOP, can you imagine the outrage if President Barack Obama has uttered just one “bullshit” during a speech? The Republicans would have been all over him like white on rice; they would have accused him of demeaning the presidency and moral depravity. There would have been racially-tinged condemnations galore. I can imagine a Republican blowhard saying that you can take the boy out of the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out of the boy, even though Obama has never lived in the inner city.

I call bullshit on the evangelicals condemnations of the corruption that they say emanates from Hollywood! Until they condemn their Orange Messiah for the filth that spews from his mouth, they can shut the fuc* up.

Homophobic White Evangelicals Are Dying Out! Praise the Lord!

“Nearly 60% of white evangelicals between 18 and 34 believe homosexuality should be accepted, according to a 2017 survey by the Pew Research Center. By contrast, about the same share of white evangelicals over 65 said homosexuality should be discouraged.”

USA TODAY

It’s axiomatic that white evangelicals are vehemently opposed to LGBTQ rights, for generations Republican politicians have used homosexuality as a wedge issue.

White evangelicals favorite refrain is that they hate the sin but love the sinner. Bullshit! It’s difficult for gays and lesbians to feel the love when they are cudgeled over the head with Old Testament verses, and televangelists rail against same-sex marriage.

It would be different if white evangelicals had the mindset that homosexuality went against their interpretation of the Bible, and they respected the fact that we live in a pluralistic society, and simply live and let live.

But the times they are a-changin’ as a notable poet once said, younger evangelicals live in a more religiously and culturally pluralistic environment, and they are much less prone to label their gay and transgender friends as perverts or hell-bound sinners.

It should be noted that most of the prominent white evangelical leaders are Generation X’ers and Baby Boomers, and many of the younger people in their congregations are less likely to share their homophobic views.

Evangelicals who were against were pro slavery and mixing of the races died out, and in a generation evangelicals who are fervently opposed to gay, lesbians and transgenders will die out.

But already the vast majority of Americans, including many white evangelicals, are accepting of same-sex marriage, and it’s incumbent upon us to vote against homophobia in 2020

Thank God There’s a Few White Evangelicals Who Distance Themselves From Mike Pence

Jesus Christ didn’t limit his outreach only to the poor, social outcasts and the disenfranchised who would be receptive to his message of love, understanding and redemption.

He also sought out the Pharisees and Sadducees, and berated them for their hypocrisy, self-righteousness and pride.

Vice President Mike Pence, an evangelical Christian, has agreed to be a commencement speaker only at Christian colleges and military academies who he feels would be receptive to his brand of conservative evangelical philosophy.  

But there’s light shining even in the darkest citadels of white evangelicalism, when Taylor University, an evangelical school in rural Indiana, announced that Pence would speak at the commencement ceremony on May 18 hundreds of students immediately protested. Surely Pence thought that a white evangelical university in his home state of Indiana would be a safe place for his religious bigotry.

Alex Hoekstra the author of an online petition asking the university to disinvite Pence wrote:

“Inviting Vice President Pence to Taylor University and giving him a coveted platform for his political views makes our alumni, faculty, staff and current students complicit in the Trump-Pence Administration’s policies, which we believe are not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear.”

Indeed, any university, college or military academy that invites Pence to speak is complicit with the anti-Christian and anti-democratic views of Donald Trump.

Taylor University should honor Christ, disinvite Pence, and extend an invitation to Mayor Pete, a man who truly embodies the loving and humanitarian spirit of Jesus Christ.

Donald Trump Indulging in ‘God Talk’ to Pander to White Evangelicals

Donald Trump is consumed with expanding his business empire and burnishing his brand, and demeaning and ridiculing any perceived threats to his financial dynasty or his political power.

There is simply no room in Trump’s consciousness for God, a belief in a Creator isn’t congruent with his business model of winning by any means necessary. Although expressing a belief in the Biblical God is necessary to hold onto his evangelical base.

I give Trump credit for not pretending to be a devout Christian, he almost never mentions God, and he famously declared that he’s never asked the Supreme Being for forgiveness, because he’s never done anything wrong. Never mind that he commits the Seven Deadly Sins on an almost daily basis, and by all accounts he’s a moral degenerate.

Trump has never attended church regularly in his adult life, in fact the only time he darkens the doors of a church are on Christmas and Easter. Maybe if a white evangelical congregation names their church after Trump, he might attend church more regularly.

Recently Trump has started to invoke the name of God, religious rhetoric is creeping into his stump speeches that are still dominated by xenophobia, misogyny, racist dog whistles and just plain buffoonery.

On Thursday, Trump celebrated the National Day of Prayer at the White House, and he said the Almighty had helped him persevere through the ordeal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Trump doesn’t drink or take illicit drugs, I imagine that what really helped him persevere through the ordeal of the Mueller investigation was hookers and hamburgers.

In that same speech Trump also said:

“One of the things that Mike and I were discussing just a little while ago—people are so proud to be using that beautiful word, God, and they’re using the word God again, and they’re not hiding from it. They’re not being told to take it down, and they’re not saying we can’t honor God. In God we trust. So important.”

Yeah, Right. It will be a cold day in hell when Trump discusses the Almighty with Pence. In fact, the only context in which Trump would discuss God with Pence is when he is admonishing on how to look at him when he is delivering a speech:

Listen Pence you holy rolling piece of shit! You’d better gaze at me adoringly while I’m speaking. Just pretend I’m your daddy or you’re freaking God!

So what’s up with Trump employing more God talk? Let’s just say that God didn’t help him persevere through the ordeal of the Mueller investigation, but invoking God is helping him deal with its aftermath. Throw in a few God is beautiful comments, and his evangelical base might be distracted from the finding of the Special Counsel’s report, namely that he obstructed justice and that his administration is a shit show.

Donald Trump the Elmer Gantry of Politics

Donald Trump is the Elmer Gantry of politics, only he isn`t hawking Jesus, he`s selling himself. Trump brags about his wealth, influence and power, and he behaves as if he isn`t subject to the rule of law, Republican heterodoxy or social mores.

Trump is an out-of-control narcissist who should be anathema to evangelicals, but miraculously he`s venerated as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Elmer Gantry as portrayed by Burt Lancaster was Bible literate, and he knew just the right verses to loosen the purse strings of the hillbillies who attended his revival meetings.

Trump, on the other hand, isn`t well-versed in scripture, he probably uses his family Bible only to stash his copy of Penthouse in Two Corinthians. Trump mesmerizes his white evangelical base not by quoting scripture, but by appealing to their Biblically based enmity of gays and lesbians and powerful women. The more Trump rails against immigrants and feminists the more his white evangelical sycophants froth in religious fervor.

Trump makes wild and outlandish promises that even a snake oil salesman like Gantry would be too timid to utter, and he gets away with it. “I will build a beautiful 30-foot concrete wall from sea to sea and Mexico will pay for it!” Two years later and Trump`s vision of a grand wall that would be as imposing as the Great Wall of China has shrunk to a steel barrier that will be built on some critical sections of the border, and will be funded by taxpayers. And his deluded supporters sill chant “Promises Made, Promises Kept” at his campaign rallies.

Trump`s followers aren`t bothered by Trump`s ignorance, vindictiveness, crassness or impulsiveness, they are enthralled by his outrageous behavior. The more outrageous his rhetoric and behavior, the more they are convinced that he was anointed by God to Make America Great Again.

The movie Elmer Gantry ends with his church building destroyed by an accidentally caused fire, and congregants running away in panic. If only the Almighty would demonstrate his displeasure with the vulgar and racist Trump and his heretical white evangelical followers by unleashing a tornado on a Trump rally.

We Must Never Forgive or Forget Donald Trump and His Evangelical Enablers

Evangelical Darling

Donald Trump may escape impeachment, and he may even be reelected, but he will unquestionably go down in history as the worst president.

After two years in power Trump has done irreparable harm to our democracy, and he has diminished America`s power and influence in the world.

This too shall pass, and one of the darkest chapters in American history will end, but we must take pains to prevent another racist charlatan from making a mockery of our constitutional democracy.

Almost every educator, politician (of every party), theologian, journalist and historian will agree that the Trump administration has been an unqualified disaster.

But let`s not forget the roughly 40% of the electorate who has remained loyal to Trump through two years of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny and pathological lying.

Nothing Trump says or does, no matter how egregious and damaging to societal mores or constitutional norms can lessen the fervor that his evangelical base feels for him.

When our long national nightmare finally ends, and a normal president, regardless if he`s a Democrat or Republican, sits in the Oval Office we must not forget the wickedness of the white evangelicals who supported this moral degenerate.

Evangelicals cynically and ludicrously claim they`re persecuted even though they hold the highest positions of power in the Trump administration and Christianity is the most powerful and influential religion in this country.

It would be poetic justice if regular Americans turned on evangelicals and destroyed them hip and thigh, but that`s not the American way.

Evangelicals must pay a price for their treachery and deceit, we must tax their megachurches, expose their money grubbing televangelists, and teach in our public schools how Trump and the evangelicals undermined our democracy.

We must never forget or forgive the scandalous Trump administration, and we must never forget or forgive his sycophantic white evangelical enablers.

White Evangelicals are an Affront to God and Anathema to our Democracy

“The Bible, especially the King James Version, is great literature, a moral authority for a troubled world, and evangelicals consider is the inerrant Word of God.

Anybody who`s read the Bible will concur that it`s a literary masterpiece, and most Westerners will agree that it provides solid moral guidance, but most people don`t believe that it`s the literal Word of God because they are outraged that evangelicals have used scripture to justify racial segregation, misogyny and even slavery.

There are certain go-to Biblical verses that preachers spouted- the curse of Ham or the mark of Cain – to rationalize white superiority and even the slavery of blacks. Even today, especially in the South, evangelicals still use scripture to justify racial segregation.

It`s not the KKK member in full regalia that`s the greatest threat to our democracy, it`s the evangelical brandishing a Bible. Trump, a brazen unapologetic racist, has the support of thousands of KKK members and Nazis, but it`s the millions of evangelicals who put him in the White House.

The Trump administration is infested with evangelicals who hold views that are antithetical to a secular democracy. These evangelicals in Trump`s cabinet feel emboldened to proudly proclaim their homophobic, racist and misogynist views.

Take Karen Pence for example, she teaches at a Christian school that discriminates against gays and lesbians. Pence wraps herself in the Bible to defend her anti-gay views, and her teaching position in a virulently anti-gay school.

True Christians must reclaim their religion from the likes of Karen Pence; Jesus Christ the manifestation end embodiment of the Word of God preached tolerance, equality and peace, and he never uttered a single word against homosexuality.

II Timothy 2:5

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Biblical verses, taken out of context, can be used to justify everything from genocide to homophobia to the inferiority of women to slavery.

Religion shouldn`t be exempt from criticism and even ridicule, it`s incumbent upon Christians and non-Christians alike to criticize the white evangelicals who are making a mockery of Christianity and democracy.

This Christmas Curse Out a White Evangelical in the Name of Jesus Christ

White Evangelicals are evil

According to Christian tradition the seven deadly sins are: envy, gluttony, greed or avarice, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. But white evangelicals, many of whom are obese, proud of their sanctimoniousness, envious of their more well-heeled mainline Protestant brethren, and angry with anyone who doesn`t worship Trump, think that sexual sin is the mother of all sin.

They consider a Christian, especially a woman, caught in sexual transgression the lowest form of sinner. They demonize gays and lesbians, and treat them like trash, even though Jesus Christ never condemned homosexuality, or even mentioned gays. Jesus apparently wasn`t bothered that people might think he was gay, because he spent every day and night during his ministry living with twelve male apostles.

About 80 percent of white evangelicals voted for Trump in 2016, and in spite of the Stormy Daniels scandal, and his affairs with other women of ill-repute there has been no erosion of support.

You won`t hear any televangelist or minister rail against Trump and his many sexual transgressions, and you won`t hear any layperson bemoan the short-fingered vulgarian`s sexual escapades.

White evangelicals frequently proclaim that the Bible tells us to pray for our leaders, and that we should pray for Trump. But they never pray for Trump to repent of his predatory sexual behavior, his greed and mean spirit, instead they pray that the Almighty would continue to bless him. As if God would bless an unrepentant sinner who takes pride in his sins, sexual or otherwise.

Damn Donald Trump and his white evangelical enablers, gays will sashay through the Pearly Gates while they will be greeted in hell by demons with an insatiable appetite for sodomizing religious hypocrites.

There is No War on Christmas! America is Besotted With Christmas! Merry Christmas!

Phony War on Christmas

America is still nominally a Christian nation, but the future is secular and based on science and algorithms, and the advent of Artificial Intelligence will eclipse faith in deities based on holy books.

But Christian beliefs and rituals still permeate our culture, and there in no nation on Earth where Christianity is more accepted and welcomed than America.

During the holiday season you can`t turn on the TV or radio, pick up a magazine or click on a Web site without being bombarded with a chorus of “Merry Christmas” and other tidings of religious expression.

But evangelicals, perhaps because they see secularism and other faiths gaining ground, claim that there`s a war on Christmas. The claim is preposterous and it requires a giant leap of faith and a keg of beer to believe and promulgate the conspiracy theory.

Donald Trump will do anything to cater to his evangelical base that elected him president, and therefore he has fashioned himself as the leading protector of Christmas.

Franklin Graham says that President Trump`s encouragement of Americans to publicly celebrate Christmas has emboldened people to fight back when the holiday is censored.

“When the president takes a stand like saying `Merry Christmas,` this emboldens others to take a stand just like the president`s… to fight back.”

Trump is a cross between the Grinch, Ebenezer Scrooge and Baby Huey, and the spectacle of the president as a crusader for Christmas makes me want to vomit.

Trump, Graham and white evangelicals can stuff their phony war on Christmas up their nether regions.

This white evangelical-hating liberal has no problem saying “Merry Christmas.” I wish all of my readers, of all religious persuasions, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Donald Trump and His White Evangelical Followers Make Me Vomit

Donald Trump campaign rallies are composed of racist rednecks, white evangelical reprobates, embittered blue-collar whites and a sprinkling of Uncle Toms and establishment Republicans.

At a campaign rally in Missouri, on the eve of the midterm elections, Trump`s stump speech was interrupted by first responders tending to a supporter who had feinted.

The crowd burst into a rendition of “Amazing Grace,” which might seem incongruous at a political rally, but not at a Trump event where everybody is familiar with arguably the best known hymn in Christianity.

Trump was forced to shut his trap, as he wandering aimlessly on the stage, pointing to the singing crowd, while privately thinking, “What a bunch of rubes.”

Needless to say Trump didn`t join in singing because Mr. Two Corinthians doesn`t know the words to the most popular hymn in the world.

This incident illustrates the symbiosis between the amoral short-fingered vulgarian and his white evangelical following. White evangelicals know damn well that Trump isn`t a moral person, let alone a born-again Christian, but they tolerate, and even rationalize, his corruption ,vulgarity and immorality as long as he continues to appoint conservative judges.

It`s certainly a testimony to God`s Amazing Grace that He didn`t smite that campaign rally with fire from above.
