“The religious right movement has struggled for decades to play a leading role in choosing the Republican Party’s presidential nominee, but this year, social conservatives declared early on, would finally be their year.

And yet, after doing everything right and carefully following their specific strategy, the GOP ended up going with a thrice-married adulterous casino owner who quite literally can’t tell the difference between a communion plate and a collection plate.”

“Yes, that Michele Bachmann. The failed former presidential candidate and former congresswoman has a new gig, advising her party’s presumptive nominee on evangelical issues. What could possibly go wrong?

She’ll be joined by a variety of prominent figures from the religious right movement – the panel has 25 members in all – including James Dobson, Jerry Falwell Jr., Robert Jeffress, Richard Land, and Ralph Reed.”
A very interesting piece on the Rachel Maddow blog.
Yep, some Americans are indeed quite ignorant.   If anyone is quite stupid enough to believe that Trump is such a friend to LGBT folks as he claims, or heck, anyone who is just a decent human being,  just look at the company he keeps.  It’s a who’s who of the biggest jackasses in Christianity.

  1. THE Donald is using the tried and true Democrat Party technique of pandering to anyone he needs to in order to get where he needs to go.

    The Republican Party establishment no longer even bothers to hide its disdain for the so-called “Religious Right.”


    1. hmmm, now why did you like my post, SOM since like tends to mean agree with? And we know that you’ve defended Mr. Trump and have expressed similar opinions to the lovely legion of doom he’s assembled.

      It’s always good to see you making more false claims intentionally. It’s even more entertaining to see you whine about the GOP and make comments like “the so-called Religious Right”.


      1. The Donald, like the Democrat Party, uses Machiavellian (read that, amoral)techniques for power acquisition.

        That’s why none of the nimrod GOP candidates stood a chance against him in the primary.

        And that is why many Christians are going to be holding their noses this election season.


      1. It’s a picture (which is worth a thousand words). The Republican Headquarters from The Simpsons. Posted in support of the Hall of Doom. Sorry for being suspicious.


  2. It’s outrageous, egregious, preposterous.

    How could he snub Phil Robertson’s gracious offer to become his spiritual adviser?

    Or not include Bill Donahue? Doesn’t he want the Catholic support?

    And I bet that Mike Huckabee, Pat Robertson, the two Rickies (Perry and Santorum), Franklin Graham, Rick Warren, David Barton, Bryan Fischer, the Schlafly clan and the Banana Man must be pretty miffed about being left out, too.
