Floundering On The Cross: "Christians" Who Support tRump

'Moral Sewage': Trump The Opposite Of Christianity | Crooks and Liars:

 ...If Democrats win big, it will be because of Trump’s “reality television moral sewage.” This man who is in every way the opposite of Jesus’ teachings is making a mockery of so-called Christians like Falwell. But apparently hypocrisy runs in the family -- in the 1990s, Falwell, Sr. accused the Clintons of murdering dozens of people, a claim for which there was not even a shred of proof. Jesus would probably be comparing these kinds of hypocrites to the Pharisees of his day.

The irony here is that Hillary, in stark contrast to Trump, is a Midwestern Methodist to her core, just like she was raised. My Methodist minister at the church I grew up in reminded me recently of when I introduced him to Hillary, and the two of them talked about the theology of the Methodist church. Hillary firmly believes in the Methodist social gospel, exemplified in that quote from the Methodist Church’s founder, John Wesley, that she mentioned in her convention speech: “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can...”
On the first hand, I love it when karma pays a visit to anyone richly deserving of said visit. On the other hand, I feel for the true Christians, and I do mean the real ones, who, wedded by faith or family to the GOPer tribe, are now writhing on a cross of their construction because they are bound by tribalism to support the Devil, whom they recognize as orange evil, but their hearts are telling them to get down off the cross and support the only Christian candidate, Hillary Clinton. It is painful to hear their cries and moans on Facebook as they contort into knots justifying each other's support for the silver spoon anti-Christ.
