Leftwing Evangelicals: An Oxymoron?

Leftwing Evangelicals: An Oxymoron?

Hypocrite – hip-uh-krit “a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc. that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.”

Donald Trump has been president for a year, yet my social media newsfeed and email inbox still overflow with stupefied leftwing evangelicals who hate Trump (literally) and loathe the conservative Christians that voted for him.

So then, where was the outrage from the same better-than-thou Chardonnay-swirling leftwing evangelical crowd when Christians voted for Obama?

It’s obvious that their condemnation has less to do with evangelicalism or Christianity and more to do with their political leanings.

Otherwise, when Obama was in office, they would have expressed a little of that righteous indignation they currently can’t control when Obama’s policies harmed Christian bakers and nearly sent the Little Sisters of the Poor to the poor house.

If this were about Christian values, they would have joined a “resistance” movement when Obama’s definition of marriage “evolved,” and would have occupied the White House lawn when his administration told boldfaced lies about the slain in Benghazi.

They didn’t hesitate to support a president who was “pro-choice” on third-trimester abortions, but they have zero grace for our current president — who has already fulfilled promises on key conservative issues like judicial nominations, abortion and religious freedom.

It’s sad to say and quite telling, but Trump’s political positions are more Christian than theirs.

During Obama’s years, there was no condemnation…no…
