In American politics, where has God gone?
Of course this is an inadequate way of posing the question. God is always present for believers, even if the political workings of the divine can be […]
@OP – link the Donald J. Trump Foundation contributed $100,000 in 2012 to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and in 2013 gave $10,000 each to the Family Leader, an influential Iowa evangelical group, and to Samaritan’s Purse.
So he bought support from the delusional wish-thinkers, as so many loony right-wing politicians have done throughout history!
Promising them a non-deliverable utopia, is nothing new!
This is good news isn’t it, sort of?
I mean a republican loony is surely preferable to an evangelical religious republican loony?
Philo, one step at a time eh?
I generally vote republican, but I am unwilling to accept America as a theocracy. I have sent many emails to the Republican party telling them that it’s disturbing that republicans deny the constitution when it comes to the separation of church and state. Maybe they’ve gotten enough emails like mine to make them think about it. I hope so. I think they’ll go where the support is.
@OP – But especially among Republicans, religious issues have taken a back seat in the party’s discourse and religious leaders are playing a diminished role in the 2016 campaign.
Given that other aspiring candidates were god-besotted:-
Ted Cruz declare to his followers: “Awaken the body of Christ that we might pull back from the abyss.”
You can’t get much more religious than that.
Trump campaigning at LIBERTY UNIVERSITY (That well known centre of creationist Xtianity and science denial), does not suggest this is so!
It merely suggests his delusions are across a wider spectrum!
