White Evangelicals, This is Why People Are Through With You

White Evangelicals, This is Why People Are Through With You


I doubt that any white evangelicals will take the time to read this - or even attempt to grasp the truths within the text.
But, it is all true for those of us who are through with you. Christians, Jews, Atheists, people of all religions - we're just through with you.
Hopefully, you'll read this and think about it with an open mind ... though I seriously (and sadly) doubt that it is possible for you to do so.

I'm not going to cut and paste any of it. Just give the link.

It's put into a short few paragraphs everything that so many of us have spent hours and hours and hundreds of thousands of words attempting to get across plainly and cleanly.

Beautifully stated and TRUE--every single word. AND we wonder why people leave the church...organized religion. Quoting scripture ONE minute. Using VILE, offensive and hateful language the next. What kind of God do they worship?? Is their God so small? So unsatisfactory? So unloving? So hypocritical?

These type of people are not really practicing Christians. They are “political and financial” Christians and are hypocrites by definition.
Thanks from Clara007

White evangelicals voted for Obama, who sat in the church of Wright for 20 years.
Why? Because we elect presidents and not saints for office.

Let's be accurate. Just 24 percent of them voted for Obama in 2008, and even fewer ― 21 percent ― voted for him in 2012. Among white evangelicals who said they attended worship services at least weekly, support for the 44th president was even lower.

Obama got a minority of the White Evangelical vote. Clinton got an even smaller minority.

The real question is how could anyone professing to be a Christian vote for Trump?

The white evangelicals rejected Bill Clinton over his moral failings but Trump falls far short of even that standard.

If they support Trump, I feel the same way I feel about white Evangelicals - and about baiting questions like the one you posed.

True, but not isolated. I guess it is more about the message they deliver than the pretense of being perfect. People overlook all kind of offenses, and while it may seem that I am harping on Obama, I only do so because he is a recent comparison.
A relative unknown with questionable baggage was elected regardless. Fill in a name and a voter base at your pleasure. Obama had a short record, Trump is/was no politician.
Look at the primaries, if you don't mind. You have x number of candidates on either side. Voters side with their favorite candidate while listing the shortcomings of all the other candidates until one candidate remains. They now support this very candidate, no matter how harshly they criticized that candidate. Why? Partisanship to the bitter end. White, black or brown evangelicals, atheists, ...ists of any sort. So no, I don't find it very amusing to single out white evangelicals, or anyone for that matter. We tend to overlook negatives in favor of positives, may that be party, lean, or whatever trend.
Thanks from roastpork and Clara007
