JESUS AND JOHN WAYNE: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation, by Kristin Kobes du Mez

"It is impossible to do justice to the richness of “Jesus and John Wayne” in a short review, but one of the key points the book stresses is that as Christian nationalists, the vast majority of white evangelicals believe that our country’s flourishing depends on aggressive male leadership. The pervasive abusive patterns of white evangelical subculture replicate themselves on a large social scale in the Christian Right’s politics. Since understanding this will be crucial if Americans are to have a functional democratic future, “Jesus and John Wayne” is a book that America needs now. I hope it will be widely read."https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/06/17/arts/jesus-john-wayne-untangles-gender-messages-white-evangelical-circles/

@calguy

THIS article was scary to me re the need for those while evangelicals to have a MALE led society.  

 

Can you imagine if this nation were led by a bunch of Trump voters?

We already saw what happens when trump stole the election in '16. We must not let that happen again.

How can somebody "look" smart?

 

Is it the glasses?

 

The high cheekbones?

 

Maybe because she's white?

 

Please explain...

I just think it's hilarious that every time a Republican has won the WH since 2000, it's because they "stole" it, but the Dems always win because they are wildly popular and the election was fair and honest.

Would naked make her "look" smart?

 

Face down ass up could be fun, but it still doesn't speak to her intelligence.

I might tuck the post away for the next time you call a righty a "nutjob" for claiming the 2020 election was stolen.

 

I could be good for a laugh at some point.

I don't do bubbles. I sample the news from both sides of the aisle. I can't say they same for a lot of NHB members given their posts.

Do you have a cell phone ?

 

I read at some conservative site that materials that go into the batteries is minded by barefoot kids in Africa.

 

Do you know if that is true ?

 

Is it true that your computer and key board are made from petroleum ?
