“The better Americans know evangelical Christians, the less they like them, according to a recent study from the Pew Research Center.
The wide-ranging What Americans Know About Religion study found that, in general, people who are more familiar with a religion other than their own tend to express more favorable views toward members of that faith.
‘One exception to this pattern is evangelical Christians, who are rated most warmly by those at the low end of the religious knowledge scale,’ the study said.”
I wholeheartedly concur with the findings of this study. The more I know about Muslims, Hindus or other religions the more I like them; exposure to people of different belief systems makes me realize that their nomenclature might be different but the ideas that most religions espouse (the golden rule, justice, peace & love) are universal.
White evangelical Christians are the exception to this rule, the more people learn about them the more they hate them. In the Trump era we have learned the depth of the depravity, hypocrisy and sociopathic tendencies of evangelicals.
White evangelicals have substituted the merciful and loving Jesus Christ for the vengeful and hateful Donald Trump, and as a consequence we hate them as vehemently as we hate the stinking pile of human shit known as Donald Trump.
Evangelicals like to say, “hate the sin, but love the sinner”, but evangelicals are sin personified, and I hate everything about them.
