The Apocryphal Faith of Donald Trump

In all fairness I can’t call this a book review. I believe for a book review you need to read the entire book. In the case of The Faith of Donald J. Trump: A Spiritual Biography (HarperCollins, 2018), that was not going to happen. When discovering what nails on a blackboard feels like, you don’t […]

An Appeal From A Different Kind Of Evangelical

Editor’s note: Zack reached out to me in response to a piece I published on Jerry Falwell Jr. and what I perceived to be the commercial rot of American Evangelical Christianity. He thanked me for my words and for, as he put it, “exposing our hypocrisy”. I was struck by his honesty and asked …Continue reading […]

Trump’s Spiritual Advisor Recommends Jesus Instead Of Flu Shots

There is certainly a scientific debate to be had over the efficacy of flu shots. But there is one thing for sure — a belief in Jesus as your Lord and Savior doesn’t ward off the virus responsible for killing thousands each year and making everyone’s life a complete misery.   Not …Continue reading Continue Reading […]

Support For Trump After Stormy Daniels Affair Spells The End Of Evangelical Relevance

As Saint Bernard of Clairvaux said in 1150, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions,”. Or in the age of Trump, the road to hell is paved with selling out every one of your core beliefs in the name of banning abortion and sticking it to liberals. White, evangelical Christians …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

It is inconceivable that one man could sow such incredible hatred around the world in such a short space of time. But so despised is Trump and so catastrophic is his decision making, that the Israeli town of Nazareth has officially cancelled Christmas in response to his decision to officially …Continue reading Continue Reading at […]

Even Evangelical Christians Are Fleeing Trump as His Poll Numbers Evaporate

White evangelical Christians overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump for president in 2016, believing that a man who confessed to sexually assaulting women, denigrated immigrants and ran on a vicious campaign of bigotry and hatred would be preferable to a woman who, well, wrote some emails or …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

If Roy Moore Wins, The Pro-Life Movement in America is Finished

For anyone who has spent time in rural America, the notion that the pro-life movement is going to disappear in the near future is completely ridiculous. It is well funded, well organized and as culturally acceptable in red states and rural areas as gay marriage is in San Francisco. However, the …Continue reading Continue Reading […]

Trump’s “Closest Spiritual Advisor” is Completely F*cking Insane

Televangelist Paula White is apparently Donald Trump’s closest spiritual advisor and a staunch defender of the president who believes that Trump genuinely “is a Christian,” who “accepts Jesus as his Lord and savior.” Which makes all the sense in the world when you take 30 seconds to listen to …Continue reading Continue Reading at https://thedailybanter.com

Jerry Falwell Jr. Still Believes Man Who Grabs Women By the P*ssy is “Dream Candidate”

One question I always ask my Christian Evangelical Republican friends is if Jesus Christ were alive today, would he vote for someone like Donald Trump? The answer is almost always “no, but he’ll get the things I like done”. And invariably, those things are the least Christian like policies …Continue reading Continue Reading at http://thedailybanter.com
