You Will Know Them by Their Fruits.
You may have found yourself wondering recently, “What’s with ol’ Albert Mohler? Does he still go around saying painfully stupid things all the time?”
Yes. In 2016, Mohler rightly recognized that Donald Trump is a thoroughly repellent human being and refused to support him. What do you know? After …
The failed pandemic response
Thousands of lies
The utter destruction of American credibility
Cozying-up to dictators and weakening the NATO alliance
Uninterrupted hostility to the First Amendment, especially freedom of the press
Grotesque ignorance of the Constitution and the operation of the American government
… Mohler has decided ol’ Donald is his kind of guy.
I’m not making this up: One of America’s most prominent Holy Men just announced that he’s cool with Trump.
But in a lengthy video recorded on Monday, Mohler, who is president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, said he plans to vote for Trump in 2020 and for the Republican presidential candidates for the rest of his life, unless the party changes its platform.
Mohler argued in the video that conservative Christians should vote based on a party’s view on abortion, Supreme Court nominees and protecting religious liberty. He said former vice president Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, had character issues for reversing his position on the Hyde Amendment, a provision barring the use of federal funds for abortion.
Character issues! The jokes write themselves …
Never forget this: The incandescent hypocrisy of Albert Mohler et. al. is the truth about the Evangelical Right; this hypocrisy and dishonesty is who they really are. They are hostile to American ideals, they are malicious, they hate science — and Donald Trump is their hero.
