The Trump years prove one thing: Evangelicals are everywhere and have turned against our democracy- en masse. The first casualty was decency. The second was our idea of manhood. Let that sink in.
Trump has gone to great lengths to prove he’s a man and failed. “Grab ’em by the pu**y” Trump will remain a parody of manhood.
Trump uses his maleness as permission to abuse, bully, belittle. No wonder evangelicals still love him. Keeping women down is a main theme in the Bible.
In evangelical homes, The Father decides. The wife and children make peace with his decisions.
Biblical masculinity glorifies dominance, while taking refuge in cowardice. Trump made his cruelty a national disgrace and evangelicals went along.
Why did evangelicals go for Trump? Because Trump was as cruel as the Bible.
