You’d think that evangelicals would revile the twice-impeached, quadruple-indicted, serial sexual predator and amoral sociopath Donald Trump as the antichrist.
Instead, these white evangelical cultists worship Trump as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. But it’s not the kind and gentle Jesus of the Gospels who took on human form to save the world that they worship, they see Trump as the Jesus of Revelation, who returns to Earth with a sword in his mouth to judge the righteous, and wage war against the wicked. The Jesus of Revelation makes the holy and vengeful Jehovah of the Old Testament look like a kind and loving Creator.
The orange deity of the evangelicals is on a crusade to save children from an imaginary satanic child sex ring operated by Democrats. The Messiah of the MAGA cult is on a mission from God to take back America from immigrants, godless liberals, uppity women and gays and lesbians and return America to the glory days of the 1940’s when colored people and women knew their place, the Christian religion reigned supreme, and gays, lesbians and trans people didn’t dare come out of the closet.
Evangelicals need to wake the fuck up and realize they have been suckered by a con man who has been preying on them since he was first elected in 2016.
Trump doesn’t have a spiritual bone in his body, if he’s read the Bible, it’s only to wank off over some of the more lascivious passages in the Old Testament. He caters to evangelicals not because he shares their theological views, but because they are an indispensable part of his coalition of the crazy.
The Jesus of the Gospels may weep over the sad spiritual condition of Trump and his evangelical supporters, but I hope the Jesus of Revelation smites them and hurls them into hell.
