White Evangelicals Continue To Distort Christ Teachings To Justify Racism And Hypocrisy…

Asked by MSNBC’s Alex Witt, about Donald Trump’s alleged infi­deli­ties and dal­liances, the head of Samaritan’s Purse and son of renowned tel­e­van­ge­list Billy Graham, Franklyn Graham said the following.

He said he didn’t say it,” Graham said. “I don’t think any of those sen­a­tors if he did use that lan­guage, have heard that word for the first time. I’m sure that’s a word they’ve used before, I think there’s a lit­tle hypocrisy here.”
“We have a busi­ness­man who is a pres­i­dent, not a politi­cian, but a busi­ness­man,” Graham said. “We should all be grate­ful that he’s brought his knowl­edge to Washington and he’s help­ing to turn this econ­o­my around.”

For the record Donald Trump the sup­posed busi­ness­man filed for chap­ter 11 bank­rupt­cy a stag­ger­ing six (6) times and backed up by PolitiFact.May esti­mates have cir­cu­lat­ed which stat­ed that Trump had filed for chap­ter 11 bank­rupt­cy pro­tec­tion a total of four (4) times which con­flicts with Politifact’s find­ing of six.
Questioned, Trump told Washington Post reporters that he count­ed the first three bank­rupt­cies as just one.

Reverend, you just told me that this coun­try has a sin prob­lem and I know you’ve no doubt heard that the pres­i­dent is accused of hav­ing his lawyer pay $130,000 to a for­mer porn star alleged­ly for her silence about his sex­u­al encounter while he’s mar­ried,” Witt said. “The pre­vi­ous alle­ga­tions as well, that access “Access Hollywood” tape, does that chal­lenge your faith in the president?”

Does the pres­i­dent have a sin prob­lem?” Witt asked. “I can promise you he is not President Perfect,” Graham shot back.
“But, sir, can you under­stand how there are those that are cry­ing hypocrisy? When for exam­ple, the New York Daily Newsedi­to­r­i­al on Thursday accus­es some Christian lead­ers, like Gary Bauer who sup­ports the pres­i­dent for being hyp­ocrites, for say­ing absolute­ly noth­ing about the Stormy Daniels mat­ter,” Witt said. “When peo­ple cry there are hyp­ocrites there with­in the evan­gel­i­cal com­mu­ni­ty, can you under­stand that criticism?”

Well, first of all, President Trump I don’t think has admit­ted to hav­ing an affair with this per­son and so, this is just a news sto­ry, I don’t know if it’s accu­rate.”
“Now did he have an affair with this woman? I have no clue, but I believe that 70 years of age, the pres­i­dent is a much dif­fer­ent per­son today than he was four years ago, five years ago, ten years ago or what­ev­er and we just have to give the man the ben­e­fit of the doubt,” Graham con­tin­ued. “He said he didn’t do it, so okay, let’s say he didn’t do it.”
“I don’t think it’s hyp­o­crit­i­cal because he’s a flawed man, for me to try to sup­port him and help him and pray for him,” Graham said. “I’m a flawed per­son. and I would hate for peo­ple to see all the bag­gage I have in my life, but the fact is that God has for­giv­en me and I’ve asked for his for­give­ness, and I think the pres­i­dent has, too.”

Well, there you have it no mat­ter what the charge is against you if you deny it you are absolved from cul­pa­bil­i­ty and respon­si­bil­i­ty accord­ing to the Gospel of Franklyn Graham.
About then President Barack Obama in 2012 Franklyn Graham said he believes President Barack Obama may or may not be Christian while express­ing his belief that GOP pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Rick Santorum’s moral stances show him to be a “man of faith.”

Many peo­ple have been aghast at the bla­tant hypocrisy of not just Republican Politicians but at the Evangelical move­ment which has ignored the divorces, accu­sa­tions of infi­deli­ty and sex­u­al abuse charges lev­eled against him and the con­fir­ma­tion of those abuse from his own mouth, on that Hollywood extra bus.
Many jux­ta­pose his behav­ior and the mul­ti­plic­i­ty of hor­ri­ble things which comes out of his mouth dai­ly against the alle­ga­tions of infi­deli­ty lev­eled against President Bill Clinton in the 90’s and they come away con­vinced that the white Evangelical move­ment is at best filled with hypocrites.

Their treat­ment of President Barack Obama and his fam­i­ly, despite the gra­cious­ness and class with which the Obama’s con­duct­ed them­selves, could only be char­ac­ter­ized as bla­tant­ly and dis­gust­ing­ly igno­rant and racist.

However not every white Evangelical feels that Trump should be giv­en a free pass.
Andy Crouch, exec­u­tive edi­tor of Christianity Today, an evan­gel­i­cal mag­a­zine found­ed by Billy Graham, wrote “Enthusiasm for a can­di­date like Trump gives our neigh­bors ample rea­son to doubt that we believe Jesus is Lord.”” “They see that some of us are so self-inter­est­ed and so self-pro­tec­tive, that we will ally our­selves with some­one who vio­lates all that is sacred to us — in hope, almost cer­tain­ly a vain hope giv­en his men­dac­i­ty and record of betray­al, that his rule will save us.

Don’t won­der about the fact that young col­lege edu­cat­ed peo­ple are not fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of their par­ents in adher­ing to Religious teachings.
When the words of those who set them­selves up as anoint­ed voic­es for the word of God, yet what drips from their lips are lies, racist and hyp­o­crit­i­cal dog­ma the edu­cat­ed and dis­cern­ing can see straight through them.
