I disagree

Uncle Rico:

While I understand and appreciate your commitment to Biblical teaching and a commitment to loving your neighbor as yourself, I have a tough time with the Evangelical MAGAs.

I grew up in a city which once proudly called itself "The Buckle of the Bible Belt." I saw Evangelical Christians who praised the Lord on Sunday and firebombed our African-American brothers' and sisters' homes because, God forbid, they demand their constitutional rights as American citizens. I saw their intolerance toward anyone who didn't share their views -- including Jews, Catholics and many others. Their Evangelical Christianity, they said, somehow demanded it.

Don't get me wrong. One of the people for whom I have a deep, long-lasting and abiding respect is one of America's foremost Evangelical Christians -- President Jimmy Carter. I respected President Carter because he outwardly embodied the person I hope I am -- God-fearing, caring and loving. I'll bet you're the same way.

But the Republican nominee -- that's another story that I've already outlined.

They don't view those groups as people, so it makes their actions easier on their conscience when they treat them as subhuman.

It's a trick used by those claiming they're religious when it is really about the aesthetics more than following the foundational beliefs prescribed by their religion.
