Yes, it was white evangelical preachers who ran the KKK in the 1920s. Nothing’s changed. Now they love Trump. If evangelicalism ever wants to play a more positive role in social and political life after their false god Trump falls they could begin by admitting that the Bible is full of race-tribe-lie-based mythology, repent of it and call for the abolition of all fundamentalism.

“…they could begin by admitting that the Bible is full of race-tribe-lie-based mythology, repent of it and call for the abolition of all fundamentalism.”
Seriously, dude? Now, why would they do that since they believe their imaginary deity has a chosen people who speak truth to power? Thus said the Lord… These fools for Christ ain’t giving up their rights to tell President Trump that Jesus has given him the authority to bomb North Korea or roll back environmental protections or block women’s reproductive rights. Evangelicalism, as expressed by the likes of Televangelist Robert Jeffress, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell Jr, etc., is the very epitome of Identity Politics: the saved versus the unsaved, us versus them. Of course, “da Lawd” is on their side and not on anyone who disagrees with their racist theology though they would be hard-pressed to even admit racist elements at all.
Very well said.Might I add;I feel its an all out attack on my,your .all of our ,thinking ability.Even if anything in the bible is true,we now see the logical conclusion of this Blind faith .Death to the planet and most life here.Which God is this?
