Christian Fox News columnist takes evangelicals to the woodshed for ‘unaccountable devotion’ to Trump

Cal Thomas, a conservative Christian and a regular contributor to Fox News, has written a new column in which he takes American evangelical Christians to task for what he describes as their “unaccountable devotion” to President Donald Trump.

Thomas begins his column by noting that the Bible tells Christians that “no one can serve two masters,” as “either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.”

He then transitions into saying that this could well describe how many evangelical leaders behave toward Trump.

“The verse refers to money, but in light of today’s debate about the unaccountable devotion many Christian leaders have for President Trump it is not a stretch to apply it to their relationship with him,” he writes.

Thomas then takes the Rev. Franklin Graham to task for saying that “God showed up” to elect Trump during the 2016 election, as the same logic would dictate “that God also must have ‘shown up’ when Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and every other president was elected.”

At the end of his piece, he takes evangelicals to task for letting themselves become tools of a political party first and devoted Christians second.

“Today, ‘evangelicals’ are perceived by many as one more interest group attached to the Republican Party and especially President Trump,” he writes. “Its members need to make a choice as to which one is their true ‘master.’ They can’t serve both.”

Tucker Carlson’s ex-lead writer has a history of racist, homophobic and misogynistic social media posts

Published

on

Blake Neff, the lead writer of The Tucker Carlson Show on FOX News, resigned on Friday after CNN uncovered a trove of disgustingly racist, homophobic and misogynist social media posts that Blake published under the handle “CharlesXII” on AutoAdmit (aka. XOXOhth), a largely unmoderated message board used by lawyers and law school students.

Among Neff’s most telling posts are a reference to “foodie faggots,” a comment stating, “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down,” and another comment stating that Democratic U.S. House Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, all women of color, want to “MAKE YOUR COUNTRY A DUMPING GROUND FOR PEOPLE FROM THIRD WORLD SHITHOLES.”

Supreme Court decision on Trump’s taxes handed Democratic lawmakers a powerful new weapon: law professor

Published

on

According to a law professor writing for Politico, Donald Trump earned a small victory this past week when the Supreme Court did not allow Congress to have his tax returns that prosecutors in New York will receive, but it did set a precedent for more Congressional power over the president that can be used in further conflicts.

In her column for Politico, Kimberly Wehle of the University of Baltimore School of Law, wrote that "Congress emerged with more clarity about its oversight powers, and how to enforce them, than it had before the Supreme Court weighed in," in its 7/2 decision.
