Ex-White House aide ‘haunted’ by fear that Trump-loving evangelical hypocrites are pushing people to atheism

Published

on

Former Trump White House aide Cliff Sims has told the Christian Post that he fears Trump-loving evangelical leaders are turning an entire generation away from Christianity thanks to their embrace of an amoral president.

Sims, who wrote a scathing insider’s account of life in President Donald Trump’s White House called “Team of Vipers,” explains in an interview with the Christian publication that many people on Trump’s faith advisory board are vicious social climbers who will happily knife one another to maintain their access to the president.

“I found some of the board to be mainly interested in maintaining their proximity to power, even to the point of trashing ‘rival’ faith leaders to keep them from threatening their own position close to the President,” he says.

Sims also reveals that he’s worried about how the president’s top evangelical advisers are affecting Americans’ views of Christianity.

“I’m haunted by the late author Brennan Man­ning’s quote, ‘The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Chris­tians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable,'” he says.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.

After witnessing a House Judiciary Committee hearing that quickly devolved into a circus with Lewandowski stonewalling and evading questions, Wilson unloaded on Democrats for failing in their basic responsibilities in governmental oversight.

"This is outrageous contempt," Wilson wrote. "It isn't just that this scumbag Lewandowski is slapping the committee with it. This is a test, and the Democrats are going to fail it. They're so bad at this it makes me cringe."
