Baptist minister slams Jerry Falwell Jr for ‘disaster’ promise to put Trump over Jesus

Published

on

A Southern Baptist minister has spoken up to “vigorously critique” an interview in which evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. said that he would support anything President Donald Trump decides to do as president.

Alan Cross is a Southern Baptist pastor in Montgomery, Alabama.

“Wow,” was his first response to Falwell’s interview with the Washington Post.

He then went on to analyze how Falwell’s position was a “clearly articulated” version of the “approach German Lutherans took as Hitler rose to power.”

Cross had worried this might happen, writing in 2016 that the American Christian church risked losing its soul to right-wing politics and argued that Trump’s perspective on Christianity was similar to Nietzsche’s.

The coronavirus outlook is ‘grim’ in the US — and will only ‘get worse’ thanks to Trump and his sycophants: Paul Krugman

Published

Liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has not hesitated to lambast President Donald Trump and his sycophants for their response to the coronavirus pandemic — a response that, according to Krugman, has made the crisis much worse than it has to be in the United States. And in his July 13 column, Krugman points to recent GOP “opposition research” against Dr. Anthony Fauci as a prime example of the type of insanity that is making the U.S. #1 in COVID-19 infections.
