“It’s okay to pray as long as you pray.” Part of this opinion was published in the Halfpost in 2016 and exposed the inherent hypocrisy of this group of Americans. The evangelism of Christian Americans and other sections oppose the basic teachings of Jesus. The words they use in the name of Jesus do not match their deeds. The article points out conflicts such as:
They support the importance of family values, yet they support Donald Trump’s candidate, Roy Moore, who has been accused of victimizing 14-year-old girls.
72% of evangelicals say immoral leaders can still lead morally unless they abstain, anti-LGBTQ and anti-abortion.
They ignore Donald Trump’s adultery, credible allegations of sexual harassment, and his “grasping of women by pussy” attitude.
Jesus spoke of helping the poor, the disabled, and the afflicted. Republican Christian extremists support millionaire politicians who practice bigotry, oppose social programs that help the underprivileged
Christians speak of compassion and “love your neighbor” when they support the brutal politics of immigrants
For Christian extremists to realize that their values, lifestyles and freedoms mean nothing to Trump, our government may have to take full Republican possession. The MAGA movement used them to gain power, not to promote Jesus-based America. Being an extremist believer in any ideology leads to the stupidity of the society. If Christians read the Constitution, they will know that America is not a Christian country, the separation of church and state has been created in our government and “all people are created equal.” If you love Trump’s “America First” slogan so much, follow the Constitution. Hypocrisy is degrading the church and will ultimately reduce its value and impact. The wonderful religion that Trump could have given to society is coming to an end. The end of cult leaders is not good, and neither are their teachings and followers.
