IDK who it was at @vicenews that greenlit whatever the hell I just watched but this is one of the most simultaneously laughable and dangerous things I've seen lately. This is evangelical ego-stroking at its finest.
First off, Matt Chandler was a "rising star" ten years ago and he's done nothing since then but put out a handful of shitty books regurgitating standard evangelical theology for people who already believe it
Second off, this was well before the #ChurchToo days or we would have had a field day with it, but please recall how "Village Church" tried to formally discipline a woman for annulling her marriage to a man who was caught with child pornography…
Third off, Chandler's explanation for why so many Evangelicals voted for Tr*mp was a veritable Olympic gymnastic routine in avoiding saying "they're racist"
"How do you think Democrats and media have isolated evangelicals?" LOL. Honestly at this point "the media" needs to stop doing these profiles and giving them all the visibility and fodder for their persecution fantasies their hearts could desire. Leave them be.
Finally, I have reached the Petty portion of my rant, but what is WITH evangelical men and the way that when they're about to say something egregiously sexist, homophobic and/or racist they start speaking really softly and drawing out the final syllables of words?!
That entire interview in the second half Chandler was talking JUST like John Piper in that podcast where he told a woman in an abusive marriage she needed to endure being "beaten for a season" & then take it to the church elders. Talking softly doesn't make it better my dudes
