The Southern Poverty Law Center Should Classify the White Evangelical Movement as a Hate Group

By Robert Paul Reyes

"MSNBCs Morning Joe`on Tuesday, host Joe Scarborough delivered a sermon about President Trump.

The MSNBC host said he didn`t understand the `fever` which has gripped the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump --and said the president represents `the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon on the Mount.`

`Some things cannot be debated: You look in Matthew and go through the Beatitudes, every single Beatitude, you go through Jesus` teaching, what he says he wants people to be,` Scarborough said. `Donald Trump is the antithesis of just about every single thing that Jesus Christ said on the Sermon of the Mount.`"

Real Clear Politics

Joe Scarborough has a patrician bearing, he`s a policy wonk who waxes eloquent when it comes to defining and describing Republican orthodoxy.

But on Tuesday of this week he was preaching like a tent show evangelist: His text the Sermon on the Mount, his point, that he drove home like a sledgehammer on a thumbtack, that Trump is the antithesis of all the virtues mentioned in that famous passage of Scripture.

I kept looking at the TV screen for the toll-free phone number where I could send in a donation to the Rev. Scarborough.

Amen brother Joe! Amen.

Trump isn`t just an antithesis of a pious Christian, he`s the antithesis of a human being. He`s a disgusting reptilian creature who escaped from the bowels of hell.

You`d think most Christians would share Scarborough`s disgust at Trump`s immoral and vulgar policies and behavior, but this abomination is revered as a political Messiah by white evangelicals.

The short-fingered vulgarian has been embraced by most white evangelical leaders and most of their followers.

The Southern Poverty Law Center should classify the white evangelical movement as a hate group.

From this point forward the white evangelical movement is anathema to me.
