One of the worst political trends today is the fact that many people of faith have allowed themselves to get in bed politically with a moral degenerate with no faith, religion or real ideology except an excessive love for himself, Donald Trump. A man who lies with impunity. White evangelical Christians have been co-opted and are now practically synonymous with a GOP that has framed many important issues of our time like we are in a national religious war or crusade.
There was an interesting article at Huff Po yesterday; White Evangelicals Aren’t As Worried About COVID-19 As Other Faith Groups: Study. The last two paragraphs sort of put it all in a nutshell:
“Rank-and-file Republicans, who have largely been taking their cues from President Trump and other Republican elected officials, are generally less concerned about engaging in a variety of social activities and less likely to believe the pandemic poses a major threat to their families,” he said. “If Trump and other GOP officials continue to say everything is fine, then I would not expect major shifts in attitudes among evangelicals,” he added.
Sheep, you got the wrong shepherd this time, I hate to tell you.
