Leading Evangelical magazine denounces Donald Trump and those voting for him.

Courtesy of the National Post:  

Now, the flagship magazine of evangelical Christianity is blasting the Republican presidential nominee – and criticizing the Christians who vote for him. 

“Enthusiasm for a candidate like Trump gives our neighbours ample reason to doubt that we believe Jesus is Lord,” Christianity Today editorial director Andy Crouch wrote Monday in an editorial. “They see that some of us are so self-interested, and so self-protective, that we will ally ourselves with someone who violates all that is sacred to us.” 

Christianity Today was founded by evangelist Billy Graham in 1956 and today serves as a major voice of evangelicals, who make up about more than a quarter of the U.S. population. 

The publication does not endorse candidates because it is a nonprofit organization, Crouch wrote in the editorial. But Monday’s editorial, which devoted a paragraph to criticizing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton (mostly for her use of a private email server), hammered Trump for about 1,000 words.

Well it seems that there are at least SOME Christians who recognize the tenets of their faith.

However this split among the religious right over Donald Trump have some predicting that this could be the end of their influence on politics.

I have to say that if that were to happen I would be walking around on a cloud, and it might even signal the end of the Immoral Minority.

After all when I started this blog it was to give voice to all of those who were not part of the "Moral Majority" and to point out their hypocrisy while also revealing their negative impact on politics in America.

If they suddenly are no longer a serious problem, then IM's inoculation of truth may no longer be necessary either.

Boy wouldn't THAT be something?

    Don't hang up your pen yet Gryphen. While some evangelical Christians are stepping back, the Dominionists who work to make the USA a theocracy are rushing forward.

  2. Just absolutely incredible!

  3. I would say When Pigs Fly, but my home country -- Orange County, CA -- is within 4.4 points of turning blue. Unheard of in my lifetime. The birthplace of the ultra- alt-right John Birch Society, a 1% stronghold, where cars were keyed if they bore an Obama sticker and two years ago had bumper stickers that read, "Don't blame ME! I didn't vote for him!"

    In today’s article on (Nate Silver), it was reported that “Donald Trump could become the first Republican presidential nominee to lose Orange County, California, since 1936.”

    Delicious days.

    Here is another, Liberty University students denounce support of Donald Trump

    Trump's threats to make Bill Clinton look like Bill Cosby is a calculated preemptive strike. He reveals his double standards that he is entitled to sexual assaults grabbing, kissing and voyeuring.

    Trump, Bannon, Breitbart and Ailes miscalculated the base now losing religious right base votes.

    1. They don't understand the difference between consensual and nonconsensual.

    Oh- is Bill Clinton running for something?

      Didn't you get the memo that it's really Bill and Melania running for POTUS?

      Too bad for Drumpf that Bill stacks up hella better than Melania ~ even if she's wearing a sheer pussy bow blouse.

    Word of the day for the Trump campaign -

    hypocrisy |həˈpäkrəsē|
    the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.

    We will always need your voice of reason, my fellow liberal atheist.

    O/T I was called for an online survey, metro Detroit, most of it was the usually questions except for the last two:

    In the last debate, Donald Trump was asked about using “locker room” talk when discussing women... does this make you more or less likely to vote for trump

    Before the last debate, Trump’s campaign paraded a group of women that accused Bill Clinton of rape,.... does this make you more or less likely to vote for Clinton.

    NY Times had an article today with more women coming forward with stories of Donnie’s roaming hands and rushing fingers. Of course little Donnie is threatening to sue, maybe he should have thought twice about threatening to sue every tom, dick harry in the past, because it has lost it effect.

    I expect we will hear from more women, Lecher until the election.

    It's about damned time they stood up for their supposed beliefs in the face of dRUMPf hypocrisy. IMO, too little too late.

    Maybe it will be the demise of both the rethuglican party AND the radical evangelicals? However that will not take religion out of politics... but an enforced law about separation of church and state might do the trick. Let's hope for a liberal landslide in November.

    And never rule out the Dominionist program for theocracy.

    Oops, donnie forgot to get a non-disclosure statement:
    Longtime Trump exec explains why her ‘vindictive and dishonest’ ex-boss should never be president

    A longtime Trump Organization executive — who the Republican presidential nominee frequently cites as proof that he’s not a misogynist — is backing Hillary Clinton over her “supreme sexist” former boss.

    Barbara Res, who worked 18 years for Donald Trump and served as executive vice president and senior vice president of his company, said her longtime boss is dangerously unsuited in every meaningful way to serve as president of the United States.

    “First of all, everyone knows he has no experience,” Res told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota. “I mean, the idea that he would be president is just ridiculous. I have other developers I worked for who were just as smart or smarter than he was, and I wouldn’t vote for them for president, either.”

    She said legitimate presidential candidates should have some experience and knowledge of government — neither of which Trump has on even the most fundamental level.
    “The way he shows himself, he doesn’t seem to know basic civics,” Res said.
    But those yawning deficiencies aren’t even Trump’s worst qualities, she said.

    “The worst thing about Trump, and the reason not to vote for him for president, is his temperament,” Res said. “He flies off the handle, he attacks viciously — it’s like shooting someone and having a nuclear bomb come back at you. He’s vindictive, and he’s dishonest.”

    Her recollection matches those of Trump’s own bankruptcy attorneys, who said the real estate developer and former reality TV star lied so much they would only meet with him in pairs so another witness could always be present.

    “He always was dishonest, all the time I worked with him,” Res said. “We never knew when he was telling the truth or when he wasn’t — and I don’t think that that’s what we need in a president.”

    You are on forever dude. Don't forget that these so called Christians are hypocrites. Donald showed that. See, Donald showed how sick our country is with the misogyny, racism, and hypocritical preachers. He bought all the evil ones out of their fox hole. That's the fox hole he would be in not the one with John Mccain, or any of the vets.

    I absolutely gives me the shivers to read that over 1/4 of my fellow Americans are evangelical christians.

    Franklin Graham still supports Trump. This is the "son" who wouldn't follow his mother's wishes to be buried at their mountain cabin, apparently thinking he could make more money if she was buried, totally against her will, at his money-making complex. Two of many reasons not to support Franklin Graham in any way.

    So I guess Donald was, once again, WRONG when he thought it was "genius" to have Pence for a running mate. How pathetic.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
