1 Not-So-Simple, Pretty Funny Question for the 73% of White Evangelicals Who Will Apparently Be Voting for Romney

By Frank Schaeffer, October 31, 2012

 

According to polls  73 percent of WHITE evangelicals will be voting for Mitt Romney.

If the polls are correct here’s the question I’d like to ask evangelicals using  their own style  of language/concerns/theological thinking as applied to their choice:

What’s the explanation for the fact that white American Evangelicals made the allegedly philandering  lying ignorant braggart lapsed Roman Catholic  Dinesh D’Souza their anti-Obama hero, embrace a pro-choice Mormon bishop who promoted abortion and Planned Parenthood in MA, are working to elect a job-destroying tax-avoiding lying flip-flopping-tell-anyone-anything-they-want-to-hear Swiss bank account collecting  draft dodger running with a disciple of the God-hating, Jesus-mocking hater-of-the-poor Ayn Rand, for their presidential candidate and look the other way as a crazed ultra-Zionist many Israeli Jews fear  billionaire casino owner who is being investigated for allegedly making billions off the dirtiest  Chinese gambling Communist Party-controlled outfit in the world funds the enterprise, at the very same time as Franklin Graham sold his ailing father Billy’s soul and denied core evangelical theology by taking Mormonism off the Billy Graham organization’s  list of cults in order to help the Mormon pagan-ritual-performing,  Trinity-denying, casino-money-grubbing billionaire-coddling, earth-destroying global-warming denying Mormon bishop win respectability for his  dead-Jews-baptizing-polygamy-rooted-reality-denying-interplanetary  Masonic lodge-embracing faith in an election against an exemplary modest faithful husband good father compassionate smart black evangelical Christian President whose major accomplishments include saving the economy, ending a war, killing our greatest enemy, giving health care to children and the poor and the “least of these” and who has tried to  reduce the number of abortions by helping women escape poverty in a reenactment of the lesson of the parable of the Good Samaritan?

Go figure.

    Your typical conservative believing in a literal (It is all true – every word of it ) Bible is used to believing in utter nonsense, and has listened to lying preachers his or her entire life. They believe in a lily white Jesus and ignore his comments about the money changers. They are racist to their core and are really upset that a Black man won. They are prone to ignore the basic science of the Universe and have proven quite adept at believing complete nonsense.
