81% of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump. Religious scholar Reza Aslan posits that President Donald Trump has much of his evangelical fan-base believing that he's somehow been anointed by God to become President. Aslan proposes that the trump presidency had become a religious cult. What do you think? Is the trump presidency a Christian religious cult?
No, I believe they support him because he is getting them all the conservative judges they want so that they can impose their views upon the rest of us. I believe they know he is a piece of excrement, but their religion and their desire to impose their way of thinking is more important for them.
The "moral majority" (which was neither) sided with the Republicans because the Democrats would not let them have tax exemptions for their private (white, racist) schools. Racism has been a driving force behind the Republican-Evangelical alliance since day one. Understanding that explains a lot about why Trump is their man.
I get the impression that Bush Jnr's presidency was more dangerous. It appears he actually believed the crazy stuff.
Trump is a non-conformist who plays by his own rules. His relationship with Israel is interesting. Let's see if he gets a big non-existent blessing!
No, it is more like religious Christians thought Hillary Clinton was anointed by Billzebubba.
Everyone, including the religious, are aware of Trump's failings in private life. But his policies and performance as President have been pleasing to many people who do not approve of much of his past personal conduct.
