White Evangelicals are an Existential Threat to Our Democracy

If evangelicals don’t change, they pose an existential crisis to us all … their racism, their sexism, their homophobia, their lack of belief in science, lack of belief and common sense may end up killing us all.”

Statement made at a recent panel hosted by the University of Virginia titled:

“White Evangelical Racism: The Politics of Morality in America.”

Amen!

As a vulnerable retired Latino living on a fixed income, it’s imperative that I recognize my enemies, and I’m cognizant that my most implacable and formidable adversaries are white evangelicals. They are on a mission from God to disenfranchise liberal Hispanics like me, and I’m constantly on guard for their evil machinations.

Their Christian Nationalism is an existential threat to our secular democracy, their sexism is a threat to women’s rights and equality, their homophobia imperils the freedom and indeed the safety, security and lives of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters, their ignorance land lack of belief in science threatens our standing as a civilized society.

It’s imperative that educators, politicians, intellectuals, theologians and everyday citizens treat white evangelicals as the biggest threat to our freedom and liberty.

White evangelicals aren’t going to change, with every passing year their racism, misogyny, homophobia and intolerance only grows in intensity and fervor.

We must declare war on white evangelicals, and fight their evil theology tooth and nail. Demographics and history are against these Neanderthals, but we shouldn’t wait for them to die out. We must speak truth to power, and challenge their bigotry, ignorance and intolerance with inclusivity, science and tolerance.
