↑↑ It's a pleasant read. Despite the subject it has a coherence too many contemporary authors seem to lack.

↑ Oh, so you renounce your ways? :notsure:

Christians Haven’t Blamed Natural Disasters On The President Since 2016…

Image

For eight years, conservative Evangelicals blamed President Barack Obama for every destructive occurrence of natural phenomenon, but, since President Trump took over, they don’t seem to be as adamant that calamitous weather events and other tragedies are directly affected by the actions of the Chief Executive.

“Now that a Republican is in office, we’re shifting gears a bit,” said televangelist Arnold Stoop, whose church services reach half a million people every Sunday. “Since Donald Trump took over, we’ve instructed our congregations to go back to blaming just gays for hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, forest fires, and the like. Natural disasters in America may still be getting more intense and more frequent during the Trump Administration, but blaming a white President for nature’s violence just doesn’t play well with our white, conservative congregants. It’s just a fact that the whole Anti-Christ scaremongering shtick isn’t as big a pew-filler when the president’s skin isn’t a sketchy dark color. We’re just trying to keep our religious messages relatable, you know? My congregants would never believe that a rich man like Trump didn’t have God’s approval, no matter how many Bible verses about rich people not getting into Heaven the libtards will throw in our faces.”

Some Evangelical church goers were relieved that they wouldn’t have to blame Trump for anything.

Which Christians?

The United Methodists certainly have.
As have the Presbyterian Church in America and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

And the Episcopalians? Of course they have. They are the quasi-established church of the Democratic Party.

Or do you only count the usual fundy suspects as Real ChristiansTM?

I've already stated elsewhere that you are unworthy. Please cease and desist with your shit-stirring nonsense. :)

Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of La Crosse responds to video of priest attacking Catholics who are Democrats

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – The bishop of the Catholic Diocese of La Crosse is responding to a video of one of its priests attacking Catholics who are Democrats. The video, posted to Youtube already has almost 400,000 views.

A video by Father James Altman, the Priest at Saint James the Less Catholic Church here in La Crosse, is causing mixed reactions by those who have seen it.

The video, posted by a right wing media outlet, called Alpha News MN, shows Father Altman making claims against the Democratic party.

“To clueless baptized Catholics out there, you cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period,” said Father Altman. “Their party platform is absolutely is against everything the Catholic Church teaches.”

“Repent your support of that party and it’s platform or face the fires of hell,” said Father Altman.

...

Now the Diocese of La Crosse is weighing in, at one point supporting Father Altman’s attempt to bring attention to important issues.

“When we approach issues that are contradictory to the Faith and teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, particularly on abortion and other life issues, we should invite dialogue and heart-felt conversion to the truth,” said the La Crosse Diocese Bishop William Patrick Callahan.

On the other hand, clearly stating they are unhappy with his approach and some of his message.

“His generalization and condemnation of entire groups of people is completely inappropriate and not in keeping with our values or the life of virtue,” said Bishop William Patrick Callahan.

But in the end, if Father Altman doesn’t change his message, the church may have the last word.

“Canonical penalties are not far away if my attempts at fraternal correction do not work. I pray that Fr. Altman’s heart and eyes might be open to the error of his ways and that he might take steps to correct his behavior and heal the wound he has inflicted on the Body of Christ,” said Bishop William Patrick Callahan.
