In the background, however, is a more nuanced reality that Christianity Today’s editorial hints at: a number of conservative Christians remain deeply uncomfortable with an alliance with the president.

 

Trump, after being impeached this week, is extremely sensitive to any signs of a fracture in his political coalition and has repeatedly insisted that the Republican Party and its voters are unanimously behind him. And on Friday he lashed out on two separate occasions at Christianity Today, seeking to brand it as a “far left magazine” that was doing the Democratic Party’s bidding.

“I guess the magazine, ‘Christianity Today,’ is looking for Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, or those of the socialist/communist bent, to guard their religion,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “How about Sleepy Joe? The fact is, no President has ever done what I have done for Evangelicals, or religion itself!”

Evidently leaving little to chance, Trump’s reelection campaign announced Friday evening that he would go to Miami on Jan. 3 to start an “Evangelicals for Trump” coalition.

The response from his leading Christian supporters was laced with animosity that mimicked Trump’s signature style, and reflected the extent to which they have moved into lock step with him, even in rhetoric. https://currently.att.yahoo.com/news/evangelical-leaders-close-ranks-trump-150745454.html

A disgruntled editor chucked a bomb on his way out. Not news.

 

+10 !!

Mark Galli got his little panties a wad about something.  I don' t know the details.

But here is what I do know.  The Christian Brickwall…….is solid as a rock.   And Galli can spit on

it if he wants to...….but that Wall won't move one iota.

I am now listening to all the great leaders of the Christian Right.   Galli is just a punk. 

He carries no weight.    Galli just don't speak for us.

Guil,

Why do you want see the Christians split?

Are you on our Team?  Or,......are you on someone else's Team?  

All of the Angels are waiting your answer.

(No, this is not a trick question).                                           😇

But you are not a Christian if you vote for Trump. Trump is the anti Christ. 

 

Don't bet the ranch on that position, cowboy.              

You may be in for a rude awakening.        😇..🥃

Trump does not care a whit about the least among us. He wants to take food out of the mouths of the poor. He wants to take health insurance away from those who had it under the ACA. He afflicts The afflicted and comforts The comfortable. Take him all around he is a real a******

it is important to draw the distinction between those who profess Christianity and do not live its ideals and those who actually do.

Fake Christians support Trump

What do you think Jesus would make of today's mega churches which seem to thrive on money money money? He threw the money changers out of the Temple. America is chock-full of fake Christians, hypocrites who think they have made the bargain that if they believe they will go to heaven. Hypocrites

Mike Huckabee.

Baptist Minister.  2 term successful Governor of Arkansas.  Smart, strong, wise, and pure of heart.

(and a good sense of humor). 

He was my #1 choice out of 17 candidates.  (Trump=#3.)

Isn't it true That Dems have spit on Mike Huckabee, just like the Dems

have spit on Jesus and his followers?     😡...🥃

Rest assured, come voting time and given the choice between Trump and any of the whacko's on the left - they will all vote for Trump.

 

May you sleep well tonight knowing that frogger….
