GOD IS DEAD

MAGA Christians Are Dancing On God’s Corpse

And they’ve excommunicated Jesus for being a socialist Jew.

Evangelical Trump supporters live preposterously unexamined lives binding white Evangelicalism to the MAGA movement.

Donald Trump is the actual demonic person that white Evangelicals have convinced themselves liberals are. He’s a marriage-wrecker, hedonistic sex freak, obvious atheist, litigious thief, welfare queen who never pays taxes, and he has gotten handouts from every level of government on his rise to his mobbish empire of cheap licensing deals. He is the personification of their liberal nightmares. Yet they’re politically Christifying him.

So it’s just sublimely apparent that MAGA Christianity has nothing to do with Jesus anymore. They’ve excommunicated Jesus for being a socialist Jew, and they’re dancing on God’s corpse proclaiming blasphemously all by themselves the arrival of the End Times and getting high on blood libel conspiracies, and snorting fat lines of racism huffing poppers of fascism to pregame for the party in Heaven where they’ll watch America burn and all their political enemies suffer for eternity.

Remember that the God-fearing are the most impulsively capable of committing godless acts of unforgiving vengeance… in their devotion to their loving, forgiving god of moderation. Fascism depends on the religious fundamentalists doing the crusading dirty work in the streets.

Which is why QAnon’s slow mainstreaming of the blood libel conspiracy is absolutely a cancer on society. It proliferates into so many toxic things, like anti-Semitism, Misogyny, and legalized persecution against society’s downtrodden. The Republican Party’s dogwhistle embrace of QAnon is inciting violence already. January 6th, the break-in of Nancy Pelosi’s house, and it’s going to get worse. And Christians are not breaking from the fascist coalition to be, you know, Christian.

God’s immaterial corpse is being danced upon by ends-justify-the-means theocracy.

Some other various thoughts:

Pete Buttigieg is a much better Christian, acting through works rather than stupid faith alone, than Mike Pence.
