Whatever claim they tried to make on being moral authorities or morally superior is now clearly nothing but a joke.

This is how farked up Trump is- *Jennifer Rubin* and I are in complete agreement.
 
2017-07-28 03:55:06 PM  
Jennifer Rubin is female, so any meaningful conversation that should arise from this piece will be discounted by the GOP. Can't have the wimmenfolk getting uppity, now. Even if they are right.

They don't care

They recognize that Trump is an 'imperfect bottle' but they rationalize that with 'we're all imperfect' and trot out Solomon and other assholes from the OT

Their main concern is to have the power to inflict their religious beliefs on others - specifically relating to abortion, contraception and ant-gay bigotry.

As long as Trump enables that, they're more than happy to look the other way.

And when he adds anti-Muslim rhetoric, or tells them that the reason they don't have high paid work anymore is bc of those dirty immigrants, why, he's on their side, he's their champion.

Yeah, this is simply her trying to get out in front, so that as people jump off this sinking ship, she'll already be there.  If Trump's approval wasn't in the shiatter and the administration wasn't turning into more of a clownshoe trainwreck, she'd still love him.

I see this a lot on Facebook. . .a lot of right-wing Bible Thumpers who genuinely don't care about his MANY failings, any of his controversies, anything about Russia, anything he says or does. . .

. . .because just as long as he pays even the most token of lip service to Christianity and promotes an anti-choice and anti-LBGT agenda, they'll back him to the ends of the Earth.

Evangelicals would happily embrace the antichrist himself just as long as he ran as a Republican and was sure to pass the key litmus tests of anti-choice, anti-LBGT and pro-gun.

Fark is killing me today. So many juicy threads and trying to keep up with this admin and its goings on. It's like the backend of an acid trip. Where everything is still surreal and distorted but it's just being wired and grinding with none of the euphoria remaining.

This, a million times over.

Many of them saw his election as a "scorched earth" attempt to outlaw abortion and ban gay marriage.  And if Trump failed, they saw Pence as one of them.

You're not wrong.

Mark 4:15 (NIV): Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them.

fark these conservative coward pieces of dogshiat who are only finally acknowledging the awful insanity of Trump the second it's no longer financially or politically expensive. They helped create this monster and they don't deserve an ounce of credit for calling it out. Especially since the REAL motive for criticising him is to create a mask of sanity and neutrality when the shiat really hits the fan. fark that, fark her, and fark republicans.

Nothing better than listening to an evangelical complain that they might lose their health care and then turn around and praise Trump and tea party Republicans for sticking it to "those folks".

All I can think is hope you die of ass cancer, you certainly can't of brain cancer.

Is there any definitive list of prominent conservatives who are publicly anti-Trump?  In addition to the ones you mentioned, there's Jonah Goldberg, Max Boot, Rick Wilson, Krauthammer...maybe Chris Wallace?  Megyn Kelley?

2017-07-28 06:30:38 PM  
 It all makes sense once you understand that evangelical Christians don't actually have moral or religious beliefs.  It gives you a nice little banner under which you may conduct whatever vile acts you wish to, with the conviction of being on the side of god.

It sounds like you don't WANT them to be punished.  It's like you want them to keep screaming and flailing and discrediting Christianity more.  What, you ENJOY this mess?  Is that what it is?  This seething unrest gets you off, doesn't it?  Don't lie to me.  WE'RE ON TO YOU.

Evangelicals have been terrible people for a long, long time. They are not nice. They are not decent. They are terrible people who THINK they're nice and decent. Or pretend to believe it. I don't believe for a moment that most of their "clergy" actually believe the shiat they say. Nor do, of course, the self-proclaimed Jesusy Republican politicians (like Cruz). Those assholes worship only two things sincerely: money and power.

Like the other Republicans, evangelicals hate America and most of the people in it. They refuse to own that hatred and acknowledge it, which is why they're so goddam insufferable. They say, essentially, the same shiat other Republicans say about women, the homogays, nonwhite people, the poors, but refuse to admit that it's hatred. They actually think they're better than the rest of us. Our refusal to agree with them just means we're "fallen" or "deceived" or whatever other drivel they regurgitate to each other online and in their sermons.

Their embrace of Trump is just the latest proof, though it is a bit more obvious than previous data points. However, that won't, for a moment, be acknowledged by them. They absolutely will not admit to their basic, hateful asshole nature. You can try to "debate" them all you want, if you have the time to waste. But it WILL be wasted time. Generally, the only thing that opens up these people's eyes is some personal crisis that demonstrates to them how completely repellent their movement and its "leaders" are. One of their children comes out to them as gay or trans. Or one of their loved ones (often a woman or child) is horribly wronged by another evangelical and instead of being punished, that person is defended by the rest of the "tribe" and the wronged person is scorned. Some self-proclaimed evangelical business person rips off a bunch of evangelicals after using religion to get their business. shiat like that.

Basically, these people are like Scientologists in their refusal to look at and acknowledge reality and usually only a serious injury done to them and then not punished as it would be in a just and decent society will ever make them change their minds. Sometimes not even that. If the adults didn't inflict this shiat on children -- their own children -- I'd feel sorry for them. But they do, so I don't. They are repellent, craven creatures and hopefully their influence will wane as more people turn away from organized religion (or any religion), having recognized its destructive effect on every facet of human life.

It's actually worse than that, how Rubin is portraying their support.  They actually believe he was anointed by Gawd to win and usher in Christlandia.  Michelle Bachmann just made a comment how the amount of prayer he brought back to the WH was unprecedented beyond her wildest dreams or some shiat.

No I googled it. But I didn't think I quite understood: the Mooch was himself, apparently. Fascinating to hear the AM base talk: one of them said, "I love Trump, but maybe he's crazy."

I never imagined Gawd would choose a twice divorced adulterer who operates casinos and has been tied to just about every sin thinkable.
