Just a reminder that the whole “GOP are Super-Duper Christian” thing is a lie

Deacon Steve Greydanus notes over on the Book of Face:


“Our youth will be taught to love America with all of their heart and all of their soul.” (Trump)

“Let’s run the race marked out for us. Let’s fix our eyes on Old Glory…Let’s fix our eyes on this land of heroes and let their courage inspire.” (Pence)


For Christians, the deliberate blasphemous torquing of Scripture by Christian Nationalists bent on turning Christian devotion away from God to America is a marker of deep evil.

But for non-Christians or atheists, it should be a source of grave disquiet that this monstrous theopolitical cult is eager to identify them with demons.

What comes after that is firing squads, death camps, and Zyklon B.

Vote Democrat every election for the next decade–local, state, and federal–as if your life depended on it. Because with this treasonous Freak Show, it does.

“Fuck the voting, let’s get right to the violence. Shoot to kill. – Roger Stone, pardoned by Traitor-in-Chief Trump for his role in the Insurrection 

They mean to kill if they get the power.

  1. Thanks for the reminder; it’s important. I’d like to remind TPM that early Christian Nationalists explicitly demonized Catholics and had all sorts of nutty theories about the Anti-Christ Pope trying to take over, and so forth. It’s worth remembering that plenty of them don’t think that Catholics are Christians.

    There is no alliance possible with these people.

    1. Half of Catholics are in the MAGA movement. Whatever misgivings the original Know-Nothing movement had about Catholicism, todays version doesn’t share. As long as you display some kind of Christian sentiment weaponized against women minorities the LGBT and the poor, you’re good to go with MAGA.

      1. Sure. Right up until the second MAGA Catholics are no longer useful. Pence proved that these people will turn on their own on a dime. (Would be nice if he’d noticed, but ah well.)

        Of course, “they’ll turn on you when they run out of outgroups to victimize, assuming they don’t find another reason before then,” is not one of the better reasons not to associate with terrorists.

  2. I don’t know enough about MAGA, as such, on the ground For all I know the Trumpists are totally welcoming to haters of all denominations (and all non-denominations, for that matter), but that’s not my point. Christian Nationalism is not identical to the MAGA personality cult. And the sort of Christians who believe that America is a sanctified nation with a special role in God’s saving plan for the world, are not likely to be the sort to see Catholics as brothers in the Faith.

    1. From your link: “ This radical proposal even confers a constitutional right to sterilization for “every individual” with no stipulation as to sex or age limit. Invoking this constitutional right could allow a gender confused teen to obtain sterilizing procedures, such as puberty blockers, without parental consent or even knowledge..”

      This is what we in the treatment of gender dysphoria, the correct term, call “lying for Jesus.” Puberty blockers do not sterilize anyone. They are fully reversible. Gender confusion is an invention of the hyper religious. Parents are ALWAYS involved for ethical doctors.
