Thread: The religious right's hypocrisy now on full display

All of the Founding Fathers believed that showing dignity in the office of POTUS was important. Little Falwell's tweet sounds like one of those US History "facts" that only Liberty University seems to teach.


    ETA: Even Falwell's claim that the Founders wanted only "temporary" public servants is rather vague. Presidents originally had no official term limits, although Washington set an unofficial two-term precedent. Senators and Representatives have no term limits, nor do members of the Supreme Court.
    Trump is Presidential! (Almost)

    Good read on Jimmy Carter in WaPo this week. Made me laugh that Jimmy Carter is exactly who evangelicals convince themselves trump is, except trump is more racist. That last part is important.

    What a great man. The first sign that the evangelical movement was not of Christ was when they rejected a true Christian for a slick talking Hollywood actor.

    The Southern Baptist church is far more Southern (as in Old South, white, rural culture and beliefs) than it is Baptist or Christian. What most of those folks really worship in church are the racial, cultural, and social beliefs of the rural white South. When I quit attending the Southern Baptist church many years ago, a horrified relative told me that I needed to keep going to a "Bible-believing" church, where I could surround myself with people who held "like-minded beliefs." I didn't have the heart to tell her that those types of attitudes and narrow-mindedness were exactly why I quit the Baptists in the first place.

    A great many religious leaders are charlatans and liars to line their pockets? No way!

    “Sadly, my old tribe seems to collectively struggle to realize they’ve done exactly what they spent the entire Left Behind series warning me not to do: they have fallen in line behind a worldly leader who arose to power during a time of “wars and rumors of wars,” who did so by falsely pretending to be a Christian, but who would ultimately lead them to follow an entirely new religion.”

    Oh snap!
