Evangelical leaders, Christian leaders, the Religious Right, TV evangelists: Call them what you will. So many of them have lost all claim to the high road. They have not only lost their integrity and honesty, many of them are nothing more than self-aggrandizing spiritual prostitutes. They have become little more than pandering, groveling, bootlicking toadies for political potentates—one political potentate in particular: President Donald Trump.
I don’t mind so much these pandering preachers saying they support the adulterous, philandering, lying, warmongering, bottom-feeder Donald Trump because his politics—not his personal life, mind you, just his politics—are somewhat better than Hillary Clinton’s. That might be true. Somewhat. A little bit. Maybe a smidgen. But these lackeys have taken their support for Donald Trump much further than that. They literally idolize this reprobate. They cover for him, pretend for him, and lie for him…you name it, and they do it.
There’s got to be a better word for people who honestly and sincerely believe in the Bible, constitutional government, common decency, integrity and truth telling, because “Christian” or “evangelical” or “fundamentalist” or “conservative” or “Religious Right” mean absolutely nothing today. NOTHING!
The word “Christian” was originally ascribed to the disciples of Jesus Christ during the early church period—by unbelievers. To be a Christian meant to follow the teachings and example of Christ. The word had substance and meaning. Today, it is as worthless a term as a Hudson car or the job of lamplighter.
