I never understood that sector's following and standing up for the whole 2nd Amendment issue and I believe gone to the extent of allowing NRA into their forums????  Whoa, like if you read and FOLLOW the New Testament, which is what Christians believe and follow, it is wrong to take the stance of the gun taking human life, no?


I don't know who all here professes to be Christian and who doesn't. I profess to being Christian .......... yet I am called "Liberal" (and nastier terms) here because of my political stance on issues like National Health Care, Immigration, Gun Control, Equal Rights, Welfare Programs, Tax Policies, Separation of Church and State, Immigration, Abortion, Etc Etc, and most especially my non-support of the immoral Liar-In-Chief that we have in the White House.

 

Perhaps it is time for all Christians other than the Extreme Right Fundamentalists to speak out to America and to the radical right fundamentalists?

How do WHITE CHRISTIAN EVANGELICALS reconcile their support for Donald Trump knowing what they know now? Over 81% of WHITE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS voted for him in 2016.

 

That support has literally not changed since his election.

 

He is clearly an open misogynist, a pathological liar, a purveyor of unethical practices, a huckster, a demagogue, a xenophobe, and a racist.

 

He has placed wedges between the allies of our country and has supported the enemies of our country.

 

 


It's really quite simple. Yes it is and blind trump supporters can't see it. They are far, far more intelligent than the peLOSER PINHEAD groupies. No, "{they" have believed all of the fake news that FOX puts out, along with Breitbart and other extreme right lying news sources. They are intelligent enough to understand there is no evidence he is a racist. "They" have been brainwashed or are simply biased, prejudiced enough to believe all of the fake news out there. Some are actually white supremacists and bigots. There is no evidence he is a xenophobe.  Another issue fake news believers don't see. There is no evidence he is a pathological liar. So thousands of lies uncovered through fact checking is "no evidence"? LOL !  There is no evidence he supported the enemies of our country.  He refuses to punish Saudi Arabia for murdering a U.S. citizen, He pulled out or Syria, something Russia cheers, He is allowing North Korea and Russia to expand it's nuclear programs, He has shut down the government, he has alienated all of our allies and especially NATO, yet there is nor "evidence"?  LOL ! Etc, etc, etc.  They are intelligent enough to know that's all LIES right out of the peLOSER PINHEAD playbook designed to drive a wedge in this country.  Adding "pinhead" is such an eloquent touch ! LOL! They are intelligent enough to base their support on the FACTS, "Facts" put out by the most extreme radical right sources like Breitbart and FOX the things he does for the good of this country, like all of the things i listed above like cutting taxes and trying to bring peace to the world. Bwah  ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !

Glad to oblidge nctarheel, but you're making a common mistake of confusing FUNDAMENTALISTS with us evangelicals. The Fundies scored a huge propaganda victory when they got the media to call them "evangelical" - sort of like NAZIs getting the unlettered to think they were SOCIALISTS.

 

What REALLY distinguishes Fundies from actual Christians is their insistence that God is stupid and cannot do anything that people living 4000 years ago could not understand AND their use of select passages of scripture to justify their persecution of those who have other beliefs while assiduously ignoring all the parts that "command" them to stop hating those with different beliefs.

 

The Teletubbie Fundies support Trump for the same reason the rest of his base loves him - HE HURTS PEOPLE THAY HATE, and SUPPORTS THEIR IGNORANT IDEAS. Nothing Christian about any of them.

Very  simple.   they happen to have and believe in 
FLEXIBLE MORALS. I doubt that you will find any of them that will provide a reasonable answer for their behaviour.
