Truer Words Were Never Spoken
https://www.rawstory.com/2018/04/time-ad...s-reality/

Quote:It’s time to admit the ‘grotesque caricature’ of white evangelicals is the reality

Quote:There’s no doubt that evangelicalism seems to have an image problem, especially since its overwhelming alliance with Trump. In the minds of many outside the fold, evangelicalism no longer represents a specific religious position centered on sin and the need for individual salvation but rather a self-serving, power-hungry political movement that will side with the devil himself for the sake of political pragmatism.

“When people say what does it mean to be an evangelical, people don’t say evangelism or the gospel,” Birdsall told the Washington Post. But this image problem isn’t new. Although polling showsthat overall feelings toward evangelicals as a religious group have remained relatively stable since 2014, the perception of evangelicals as “agents of intolerance,” to quote John McCain back in 2008, well predates the Trump era.

Best for these fucktards to die out and take their silly god with them.

As far back as the Carter and Reagan administrations, it was clear the evangelicals were signing on to serve 2 masters. In the case of Reagan in particular. During the Carter administration, despite having one of their own in the Oval Office, their unease and discomfort with an actual True Christian (Jimmy Carter) became increasing palpable.

Heresy and apostasy were rarely if ever challenged as political clout was deemed to be FAR more important than fealty to Jesus. Reagan's ugly willingness to pander to them should have been a clear and vivid warning to the flock, but it NEVER registered with them.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

I think one can make a strong case tat anyone who could claim the truth of the Bible in the scientific age has already demonstrated all the pragmatic duplicity needed to claim to uphold Christian values while allying itself with trump.

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

The widest gap is that which separates what xtians claim they believe and their actions.

Phony fucks.

Believers might have better luck peddling their beliefs if they believed them themselves.
