Throwing Jesus under the bus, Evangelical leaders stoop as low as possible to support Trump [View all]


"How can anyone suggest, with a straight face, that the serial adulterer, never ask for forgiveness, lying, cheat, insurrectionist is anything like Jesus?"

"The attempt to turn Trump into some kind of messiah figure smacks of desperation and idolatry," said Dr. Susan Shaw, professor of women's studies at Oregon State University and an ordained Baptist minister. "It suggests that its purveyor knows so little about the Jesus of the New Testament that he can't recognize his antithesis in Trump. Or perhaps, to be more cynical, he's so hungry for power he's willing to see Trump as his savior in a quest to hold onto the dominance of white, cisgender, heterosexual masculinity," she said.

Among Evangelicals who have led the church straight down the path to apostasy with the heresy of Christian nationalism and the insertion of right wing politics into the pulpit, no organization can take more credit for his horrendous subversion of the Christian gospel than the Heritage Foundation. Calling these people a "think tank" is an oxymoron. They don't think, they abhor and condemn intelligent thought, corrupting everything they touch and promoting a worldview that is as close to barbaric as we've seen since the middle ages.
