Oppose reprehensible behavior in a way that doesn’t presume Christian moral superiority.

Also, it’s not my position that anyone saying they’re a Christian is one. Communally mediated interpretation and praxis help define religion. White evangelicals have those.

#EmptyThePews
I grew up in a white evangelical enclave community with the type of Christians who adore Mike Pence abs became Trump’s base. You’d better believe we read our Bibles and regularly had “devotions” or “quiet time.”

Sit in on an evangelical church service sometime and look around. Note how many people—women in particular—assiduously take notes on the sermon outline the ushers provide.

And remember: regular church attendance is an indicator of *higher* Trump support among white evangelicals.
Trump evangelicals go to church, read the Bible. They are authoritarian Christians, NOT “fake Christians,” which is a theological claim, not a sociological one. Supposedly we have a secular public sphere. Time to start acting like it and calling Christian fascists what they are.
