It’s a bit of an older piece, now, but there’s an article by Miguel De Lad Torre in the Baptist News Global that everyone should read. In The death of Christianity in the U.S., he argues that Evangelicals have effectively killed Christianity by allying themselves with Trump. He writes, “Christianity has died in the hands of Evangelicals. Evangelicalism ceased being a religious faith tradition following Jesus’ teachings concerning justice for the betterment of humanity when it made a Faustian bargain for the sake of political influence. The beauty of the gospel message — of love, of peace and of fraternity — has been murdered by the ambitions of Trumpish flimflammers who have sold their souls for expediency. No greater proof is needed of the death of Christianity than the rush to defend a child molester in order to maintain a majority in the U.S. Senate.”
Would that he weren’t so obviously correct.
