Why the Christian Right has Embraced Putin
Hits the nail on the head about the new alliance between Christian right and Trump and Putin. Might we dare hope that at the end of the day the Christian Right will be as damaged as Trump, for their hypocrisy and shallowness.
"American fundamentalists admire his anti-LGBTQ crusades, his revival of the Russian Orthodox Church, his “family values” lip service, his bare-chested manliness. The GOP, observed Butina in The National Interest, a conservative foreign-policy publication, “derives much of its support from social conservatives … and those that support an aggressive approach to the war against Islamic terrorism. These are values espoused by [Putin’s] United Russia.”
Most of all, they admire Putin’s strength — and they’re glad at last to have an American leader who hits just as hard, even if he may be nearly as corrupt."
