1) When the average Conservative Evangelical suffers at the hands of these draconian, extremist @GOP measures - & they will suffer, much more so than those prosperous & shrewd few pulling strings to put those like @realDonaldTrump & @senatemajldr in power - their reason is ready:
2) God always taught us - and I, growing up Southern Baptist remember this specifically - that it's evil presumption on our part to expect or even try to make Heaven on Earth. So true equality? Social justice? Protecting the environment? Reducing poverty and want? Of the Devil!
3) The way they see it, or at least the way they present it, we're trying to make ourselves Gods when we do that! Unspoken in this doctrine is the desirability of leaving everything the way it is - or even on a course to disaster or cataclysm - in order to fulfil conditions:
4) Conditions that they've been conditioned to believe will accelerate Christ's glorious return.

For this, they are willing to create Hell on Earth for the rest of us, and even for the less advantaged - the powerless manipulated, not the powerful manipulators - among them.
5) This is so far from the teachings, purpose, and meaning of Christ's message, I believe it should be repeatedly renounced in His name - which I here do.

6) I believe the ultra-popularized, "viral meme" version of Christianity promoted in America for centuries is a fatal departure from the Narrow Way: a departure that leads to destruction, especially for those who have promote it to protect (and profit from) the powerful:
7) "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea." - Matthew 18:6 NIV
