If You Call Yourself an Evangelical and You Won’t Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19; Don’t You Dare Tell Me You’re Pro-Life.

This post is a rant. Its a rant about white evangelicals who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19. I had to get this out of my system. Beware of bold thoughts, swear words and ranting about people who are dying who don’t have to die because of evangelical’s selfish behavior. If evangelicals are not going to get vaccinated I never want to hear them say they are Pro-Life again. Not when we have the worst medical crisis in over a century tearing apart communities. This is a post I needed to get off my chest. Continue reading

In my lifetime I heard some stories and my Catholic family experienced this as well. For example my late father recalled living in North Carolina in the 1960’s and seeing how Baptists were grateful that John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. Continue reading

Michelle Goldberg in the New York Times. The Decline of White Evangelicalism is Leading Evangelicals Who Fear Losing Power to Defile the United States

Michelle Goldberg had a disturbing but important column in today’s New York Times. It looks at how white evangelicals are behaving as they lose influence. Its a long, slow process of becoming a minority and becoming sector of the United States. So many evangelicals are pouting and throwing a temper tantrum and have become nihilist. If I can’t have it no one can, is the thinking driving white evangelicalism today. So much for Jesus command of loving thy neighbor. This explains their behavior in the culture wars.
