In white evangelical’s support for Trump there was something adolescent with their taste for proud poses and laughably delusional attempts to tie Trump to the fulfillment of the myth of biblical prophecy. Now they deny the profusion of impeachment evidence. This cult is doomed.
White evangelical leaders like Ralph Reed, Franklin Graham and Falwell Jr who are still supporting Trump remind me of merchants who set up booths to sell trinkets to poor children in some strip of wasteland where a couple of kids claimed to have beheld the Virgin Mary. Any hint of holiness is wrecked by the evangelical’s support of Trump. Evangelicals hope that Trump is the “miracle” that will save their backward beliefs from future generation’s ridicule. It’s time to rage at their nation and soul-destroying credulity.
Evangelical support for Trump has become a monument of pagan majesty, an alabaster god more blasphemous than any abortion. Trump drips the blood of the innocent onto the heads of his white nationalist devotees in rituals wherein they are thoroughly baptized into his satanic cult. The joke on Trump is that, forever cast as a seducer, he’s visibly half-cocked and embarrassed by the sway of his own soulless impotence. Never does he appear more naked than when holding forth to evangelicals who revel in his decadence as Trump ejaculates his self-praise on them.
Trump’s political enabling partner is not a willing paramour but an animated doll. Trump: a self-proclaimed leading lover is consoled in the arms of a conditioned, programed, mindless machine known as the white evangelical voter. Evangelical voters have forsaken actuality, with its risks, truths and complexity for the controllable universe of delusional faith in Trump. Evangelicals are now the people of the self-willed and self-perpetuating lie. They cannot be convinced. They must be defeated instead.
Evangelical Trump supporters pay lip service to a new moral dispensation they don’t understand. They act as if Trump is honestly chiding himself for his former sins, even while the evangelical leadership enables Trump as he uses Christian voters the way pedophiles abuse children. May we not live in denial of what we’ve done, but stand up and unite against Trump–this dismal, hollow, worn-out sultan performing his bestial fables, his circus, his neurotic show on us again and again in the the back alley that he’s turned all of America into.
