Why Porn Star Stormy Daniels Has More Character and Integrity Than White Evangelical Christians

Evangelicalism is a movement that is quite dishonest at its core. Evangelicals love to hide and put up a façade that they often retreat behind. The fact of the matter is that when you consider it, a porn star like Stormy Daniels posses far more character and integrity than many evangelical Christians. Why? She’s honest about her career in porn and stripping. She doesn’t put up a façade to mislead others like evangelicals often do. Dare I ask this? Are their lessons that white American evangelicalism can learn from the porn industry especially from someone like Stormy Daniels? Chief among them honesty and integrity? Continue reading

Jeff Dornik is Promoting Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Anti-Semitism and Conspiracies. He Illustrates Why White Evangelicalism is a Cancer in the United States

Today’s post looks at Jeff Dornik promoting Marjorie Taylor Greene on Twitter. The founder of the GK Pastors Network and Freedom First Network is pushing a proponent of warped conspiracy theories. Greene is the Q Anon supporter in Congress who has called for Democrats to be executed and says that a plane never hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Greene has also said that school shootings like Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida were staged as a false flag attack, mocked those who survived; and pushes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories involving Jews and space lasers resulting in California’s wildfires. Anti-Semitism starts by ridiculing and marginalizing Jews and denying their humanity. His promotion of Marjorie Taylor Greene is sick and in this blogger’s view indicative of why white evangelicalism is cancerous in this country. The best thing many people can do is leave evangelicalism. Jeff Dornik and culture war evangelicals show why faith is not about God. Its about using faith to obtain political power. Continue reading

What White Evangelicals and Christians I Once Knew Taught Me About Faith in the Trump Era

Today’s post is about Steve Papez, Chad Hart and Josiah Jenkins and his family. Its about people in ministry I once looked up to who showed me who they really were these last few years. In this case the bridges have been burned and they will never be rebuilt. And with that I find peace especially with leaving such people in my wake.  Continue reading
