One more time: I refuse to call Trump Christians "fake Christians" NOT to legitimate them. The crucial point is that religion is FAR FROM ALWAYS BENIGN.

We need to stop giving people undue trust and deference on the basis of their Christian affiliation.

"Real" Christianity can be good. And "real" Christianity can be terrible. Both types are communally mediated expressions of a cultural system that exhibit a praxis and a relationship to the Bible.

I will add that Jesus didn't have a notion of what constitutes "real" Christianity; Jesus wasn't a Christian. Because even if someone like the Jesus of the gospels is a real historical figure, Christianity started decades after his crucifixion. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
