    Republican Evangelicals

    I stumbled on this YouTube channel called Holy Koolaid and decided to watch a couple. I don't expect anyone else to watch; I get it. But damn, this is disturbing to me. How can so many purposely remain so damn blind?

    Had I still been a church-goer, I have no doubt I'd be looking around at the congregation and pastor(s) wondering what in the world had gone wrong with them.
    Here they are praising a man (praising a man!) whose entire way of being goes against almost everything preached to the people.
    Like, if I did just a tenth of what Trump has done, they'd be praying over me to be rid of the demonic influences over me.

    It's ridiculous.
    And it shows every single one of them as the hypocrites they are.

      I think you are right.

      Perhaps you should run for President.

        Years ago, American evangelicals talked constantly about helping the poor, the sick, and the disabled, and usually voted Democratic. What happened? Why did they switch to the party that doesn't care about those things?

          It would be interesting to see how the Democratic party handled Evangelicals and yet are all about abortion rights, among other Leftist convictions these days.

          When did Evangelicals quit helping the less fortunate? Perhaps you know of different religious convictions than I do, as I'm no expert but just asking based on my past experiences.

          I quit attending in late '14, as I didn't appreciate the piousness of my group. I can still pray at home.

          And I am more open minded about my personal beliefs than many Christians I've met. Much more so.

            Religion and politics should never be mingled

            jesus said “he was no part of the world “ which definitely meant politics

              i never paid much attention to evangelicals, but i do remember my church taking special collections to help the poor when i was a kid. then by the time i was in high school they had us praying every week for the church to make more money. last time i attended was in college, when the sermon was about how we would go to hell if we voted for john kerry. my mom still goes, and over the last year when the need for charitable work was probably the highest it's been in decades, they raised a million dollars to put a new front entrance on the church.

                I used to go to church. I don't now mainly because i umpire during the winter months.
                But when i did it was amazing at how many people were die hard church goers.

                IMO i think it's better to just be a humble fan of church rather than being forced to go because some imaginary person is telling you what to do.

                  I'm not saying they stopped, but the priorities have changed. More time and effort spent on conservative politics and on conservative private education. They don't want their kids to be around liberals.

                    I think it started with W's courting of Evangelicals over topics like abortion.

                    It actually goes back to Reagan.

                  Even though I'm not a fan of Barry Goldwater I think this quote contains quite a bit of truth:


                  “Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”


                  Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

                  C/S,
                  Rev J
