We Must Never Forgive or Forget Donald Trump and His Evangelical Enablers
Donald Trump may escape impeachment, and he may even be reelected, but he will unquestionably go down in history as the worst president.
After two years in power Trump has done irreparable harm to our democracy, and he has diminished America`s power and influence in the world.
This too shall pass, and one of the darkest chapters in American history will end, but we must take pains to prevent another racist charlatan from making a mockery of our constitutional democracy.
Almost every educator, politician (of every party), theologian, journalist and historian will agree that the Trump administration has been an unqualified disaster.
But let`s not forget the roughly 40% of the electorate who has remained loyal to Trump through two years of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny and pathological lying.
Nothing Trump says or does, no matter how egregious and damaging to societal mores or constitutional norms can lessen the fervor that his evangelical base feels for him.
When our long national nightmare finally ends, and a normal president, regardless if he`s a Democrat or Republican, sits in the Oval Office we must not forget the wickedness of the white evangelicals who supported this moral degenerate.
Evangelicals cynically and ludicrously claim they`re persecuted even though they hold the highest positions of power in the Trump administration and Christianity is the most powerful and influential religion in this country.
It would be poetic justice if regular Americans turned on evangelicals and destroyed them hip and thigh, but that`s not the American way.
Evangelicals must pay a price for their treachery and deceit, we must tax their megachurches, expose their money grubbing televangelists, and teach in our public schools how Trump and the evangelicals undermined our democracy.
We must never forget or forgive the scandalous Trump administration, and we must never forget or forgive his sycophantic white evangelical enablers.
