1. @TheDemocrats are blowing the opportunity to remove Trump. We all ready have what we need to #impeach. At trial when a defendant admits it, you shut up and sit down. The thing that will REMOVE @POTUS is Syrian Christian Kurdish Genocide for the Jihadist @trpresidency #Erdogan.
2. Every one of the @HouseDemocrats & @SenateDems must say address this: "Trump must stop genocide of #Christians and #Kurds and not exchange their lives for money from his Istanbul property." Do that every time they get a microphone.
3. Force the @SenateGOP @HouseGOP to deal with it. They are already doing it and credit to them. Trump has lost @FoxandFriends on this issue. @SpeakerPelosi we can have 70% demanding his removal in 1 week. You know how fast people turned on Nixon. The #Evangelicals are against

1/ In my class on "The Bible in American Politics," I had to find a way to explain to students where evangelicals come from. I did this very basic infographic of how scholars generally map the roots or lineages of "evangelicalism." There are two streams, each with their groups.
2/ The New Apostolic Reformation as an expression of Charismatic dominionism would have their roots in the "Pietist-New School Presbyterian Methodist/Holiness-Pentecostal" stream.

3/ The term "evangelical" comes with its own definitional problems. To know more about "evangelicalism" as a category, you can read this long thread I did on a book by D. G. Hart entitled: "Deconstructing Evangelicalism."

I'll end this short thread here.

One viral image being shared on social media used a bit of reverse psychology, asking what Americans would think if the details of this story involved the #tRump family rather than the #Biden family. #GreatWhiteHunter

A viral image being shared on social media uses reverse psychology, asking what Americans would think if the details of this story involved the #tRump family with its #GreatWhiteHunter sons rather than the #Biden family with its "great white" son, Hunter.

#HunterBiden was a senior VP for financial services giant #MBNA — an arrangement that drew criticism during the 2008 elections for potential conflict of interests.
As senator, #JoeBiden spearheaded legislation that would have affected MBNA’s business. cnbc.com/2014/05/13/bid… #DNC

So here's the thing. I've spent since 2015 talking to my MAGA friends and family, trying to initiate dialogue about how 45's whole ethos is the opposite of what they say they stand for as #Christian #evangelicals and #fundamentalists. (A thread.)
What they *say* they believe - love for humankind, protection of the most vulnerable, honouring marriage, intact family units - is so very clearly NOT what this administration stands for.
I've lost touch with many of these people because I won't shut up in the face of what they are endorsing. I've tried appealing to their better natures, discussing spiritual ramifications, trying to build bridges. Trying to understand them.

@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN #Israel is a theocratic apartheid military police state.

People are segregated and one segment of people are reduced to living in dire conditions, suffer human rights abuses and abject poverty. They are beaten back by the military when trying to assert their freedom.
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN Why we would support ANY theocracy I have no idea, but we also support #SaudiArabia, a theocratic monarchy.

It doesn't make sense, if we support theocracies, why isn't #Iran our ally? Did we have to pick a side and decide to go with Sunnis instead of Shiites?
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN If the United States separates Church and State according to our constitution, and is devoted to promoting democracy worldwide, we should not be ignoring our values in order to create alliances. If they want to be allies, these countries can change

White people and #whiteness are the center of the #tRump presidency. His primary concern is to defend, protect and promote it. Self-identified #Republicans absolutely love him for it. nytimes.com/2019/07/14/opi… via @NYTOpinion #RacistInChief #WhiteNationalism
#tRump is otherizing brown-skinned members of Congress by implying they are foreigners who may not love this country.

When it comes to #race, #tRump plays with fire like no other president in a century.

1. I've seen a lot of comments from Right Wingers claiming transgenderism isn't real or is a mental illness. Ignorance is an unnecessary affliction. In honor of #PrideMonth , here's a brief education for #GOP, #Conservatives, #MAGA and #Evangelicals.
2. If you think recognition and 'tolerance' of different gender identities is a construct of progressivism, you are wrong. In fact, (White) Western culture is behind the curve on this.
3. Anthropologists and historians are well aware of cultures throughout time recognizing non-binary gender. Early scholars often used the indigenous term berdache (two-spirit) to describe the phenomenon of a 'third gender' or 'mixed gender'.

1/ Je suis heureux qu'il y ait de plus en plus de reportages en langue française sur rôle des évangéliques dans la politique.

Glad to see that the French media is noticing the role of evangelicals in politics. Here's a report on evangelicals in Brazil.

2/ J'ai écrit ce petit texte dans @LaConvCA sur les évangéliques et leur influence sur la politique en décembre dernier. / I write a French article on evangelicals and their political impact last December.

"It is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven"

"Go give all you posses to the poor & come follow me"

Them: "He didn't mean MONEY, it's the LOVE of money"

Sounds like someone is trying to justify something
And: "... you cannot serve God and mammon..."

Plus, all those passages about people who started following Jesus and gave up great portions of their ill-gained wealth.

If you are wealthy because someone else is working minimum wage for you, you have ill-gained wealth. #FYI
Thanks for coming to my sermon. I don't need to pass the collection plate because I am not a grifter. #emptythepews #Evangelicals #Exvangelical

@ThomasS4217 1/ This <thread> provides a timeline for what appears to be a coordinated effort by the current WH to expand pool of children available for transnational adoptions, which began at the State dept.'s Consular Affairs office on Jan 27, 2017, and by DHS on Feb 2, 2017
#ZeroTolerance
@ThomasS4217 2/ Fueled by evangelical fervor for transnational adoptions (receipts downthread: indebted to @rkfatherlee), current WH Adm.'s goal is to remove detained minors from federal jurisdiction (HHS/ACF/ORR/UAC) as quickly as possible by transferring detained children to 1 of 17 states
@ThomasS4217 3/ Once detained children enter a state's foster care system, they are no longer the responsibility of the federal gov't (HHS/ACF/ORR/UAC), but instead those children's welfare is the responsibility of that particular state.

Curious about the invocation of Providence in Pruitt’s resignation letter? This thread may help you grasp the politics of Providentialism that conservative Christian ideology entails.

1. This is a Plutonium Pit. It is the heart of most nuclear weapons. It is not a Gamma emitter so you can hold it in your hands. Warm to the touch. On the right is what it looks like inside its shell of high explosives used to trigger it. My metaphor for #N@zi hate. Plutonium pit
2. My estimate when Trump started was 15% of Americans were pure unadulterated bigots. N@zis. KKK, all of a kind. They are the Plutonium Pit of American politics. @realDonaldTrump is the shell of explosives that surrounds it. The trigger is held by his master @KremlinRussia_E.
3. But the single Pit is not enough to destroy America. It needs a surrounding secondary fuel that in H-Bombs is often a kind of water. Not H20. But special isotopes of Hydrogen ready to fuse when the Trigger gets them compressed in a hot rage of hate. That's the #GOP.

1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

#ConservativeWithoutAParty
3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

Alright, #Evangelicals and #Exvangelicals. It's story time. Saddle up.

Imagine this: you live in a society where being unable to pay back a loan is punishable by death. (Why, you ask? Because I'm the emperor of this society, and I make the rules, and those are the rules.)
Now imagine that you were born very poor, through no fault or choice of your own. And society is structured in a way which entails that, through the normal course of life, you've come to owe me $100 dollars... which you couldn’t avoid, and you simply cannot pay back, now or ever.
Of course, as your very exacting and by the book Emperor, I keep perfect records and accounts. And I can plainly see there's no way I can ever get my money from you… So what I decide to do is torture and kill a member of my own family, and take the money from his belongings.
