With the election of self-admitted sexual predator Donald Trump, and the continued support of alleged child molester Roy Moore, can we finally say, once and for all, that evangelical “Christians” are frauds, hypocrites, and don’t know a damn thing about real Christianity?
While this is something I’ve said for years, it’s mind-boggling to see millions of people who support policies and politicians that are the antithesis of actual Christian values claiming that they worship Christianity.
As I wrote back in 2013, Republicans aren’t Christians.
Whether or not you believe in Jesus Christ is irrelevant. Christ’s values represent love, giving, forgiveness, understanding, hope, and acceptance. The true nature of Christianity is about being a good person, treating others with respect, and living a life according to a certain code of ethics and morals.
For the record, while so-called “evangelical Christians” like to harp on and on about abortion and homosexuality, those are two issues about which Jesus Christ never spoke. I thought I’d mention that considering millions of these hypocrites seem to base their “Christian” faith on how anti-gay or anti-abortion they are — when neither have anything to do with the actual teachings of Christ.
Yet even though I’ve spent most of my life viewing “conservative Christians” as frauds, I’ve never seen anything like the last few years. They’re not even pretending to care about family values, morals, or ethics anymore. At least not when it comes to the politicians they support.
Sure, they’ll hold Democrats to an entirely different set of rules than they do Republicans, but their embrace of Trump and Moore is indisputable proof that “conservative Christians” couldn’t care less about the propaganda and lies they claim to believe.
These are the people who spent eight years tearing apart a faithful, loving husband and father as an anti-American traitor trying to destroy this country, who then enthusiastically embraced an adulterer who bragged about sexually assaulting women and doesn’t seem to possess a single Christian value.
At least not real Christian values.
Now with Moore facing multiple allegations that he sexually preyed on females as young as 14 when he was in his 30’s, most evangelical “Christians” seem determined to prove that they can stoop even lower by trying to elect a monster who allegedly molested, assaulted, and stalked multiple high school girls when he was more than twice their age.
Since he didn’t assault anyone they know, it doesn’t hit home for them. As I’ve pointed out in the past, one of my main issues with Republicans is how so many don’t seem to care about the disgusting behavior of the politicians they support — until something they do impacts them.
The sad part is, I honestly believe that, deep down, many of the people who are going to vote for Moore next month know he’s a monster and that the allegations against him are most likely true. They just don’t care. Many of these people have been brainwashed to such an extent that they would really rather have a child predator in the Senate than a Democrat.
That’s how irrational and flat-out crazy many “conservative Christians” are.
I think I’ll wrap this up with a tweet I sent out the other day:
A child molester in Alabama relying heavily on conservative evangelical “Christians” to help elect him to the Senate might be one of the best examples of the astounding hypocrisy of these fake Republican “Christians” I’ve ever seen.
