ICYMI, here’s my appearance this morning on AM Joy on MSNBC. Joy and I discussed how Stormy Daniels’ allegations have not stopped evangelicals from supporting Donald Trump. I also explain how Evangelicals have folded the belief that Trump has been given to America by God into their theology, and how someone like Laura Ingraham, a supposedly devout Catholic, can enthusastically parrot Trump’s hateful, divisive rhetoric, even going as far as attacking the kid survivors of a mass shooting.
WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD How to Create Beauty, Give Love and Find Peace By Frank Schaeffer
Caught between the beauty of his grandchildren and grief over a friend’s death, Frank Schaeffer finds himself simultaneously believing and not believing in God—an atheist who prays. Schaeffer wrestles with faith and disbelief, sharing his innermost thoughts with a lyricism that only great writers of literary nonfiction achieve. Schaeffer writes as an imperfect son, husband and grandfather whose love for his family, art and life trumps the ugly theologies of an angry God and the atheist vision of a cold, meaningless universe. Schaeffer writes that only when we abandon our hunt for certainty do we become free to create beauty, give love and find peace.
