Donald Trump is courting evangelicals following a scathing editorial in Christianity Today (CT). The editor of the mainstream evangelical publication questioned whether evangelicals could justify supporting Trump given his grievous moral failings.
The CT essay is an aberration, the vast majority of white evangelicals are enthralled by their Orange Messiah, and Trump doesn’t have to worry about losing their support.
The short-fingered vulgarian is trying to expand his support beyond white evangelicals by speaking at a Hispanic megachurch in Florida, telling the congregation that “we have God on our side”.
The most successful con artists never doubt their ability to sell a bill of goods to anyone, and the amoral, greedy, serial sexual predator figures that if he was able to persuade white evangelicals that he’s the Second Coming, then he might even win over Hispanic evangelicals even though he’s blatantly anti-immigrant and anti-people of color.
Hispanic evangelicals who support the stable genius should be ostracized by real Christians and disowned by their Latino brothers and sisters.
Real Christians don’t worry whether or not the Almighty is on their side, they seek to be on God’s side by ministering to the prisoners, immigrants and the poor and homeless.
You don’t have to be a theologian to deduce that God isn’t on the side of Trump and his Republican sycophants. The enmity that Trump and white evangelicals harbor toward immigrants, people of color, and gays and Lesbians are anathema to the peace-loving, merciful and gracious Jesus of the Gospels.
