We have been sounding the alarm about this situation for 13 years. It is one of the main reasons we started this ministry. One of the other big reasons was to give people a place to gather who saw the same thing we did. As many of you know, if you bring this up just about anywhere you will likely be verbally attacked. We needed a haven in a big way.
This situation didn't pop up out of nowhere. It's been brewing ever since Paul Weyrich and the boys cooked up The "Christian" Right back in the mid to late 70's.
The boat we now find ourselves in was inevitable. A figure like Donald Trump was inevitable. Now we face a situation where it could be the demise of our nation. There's a very real chance America could fall over this and become something entirely different. These people don't care what it takes in order to force their will on the rest of us. They've proved that over and over.
For all of the above reasons we decided this was an article we needed to preserve on our blog. We'll post the first couple of paragraphs here and link to the rest.
This is knowledge everyone who follows The Christian Left needs to have.
An 'Imposter Christianity' Is Threatening American Democracy
(CNN, 07-25-2022) Three men, eyes closed and heads bowed, pray before a rough-hewn wooden cross. Another man wraps his arms around a massive Bible pressed against his chest like a shield. All throughout the crowd, people wave "Jesus Saves" banners and pump their fists toward the sky.
At first glance, these snapshots look like scenes from an outdoor church rally. But this event wasn't a revival; it was what some call a Christian revolt. These were photos of people who stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, during an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Final Note: Most of us realize we should have begun taking action to counter the activities of The "Christian" Right long ago. We should have taken more of a stand right from the beginning. That said there's nothing we can do about the past. All we do is 'be better' moving forward. We've been at it for 13 years. One thing has become painfully obvious. You can't do much of anything in the political world without a budget. We have to have your help with that. We're community supported. Make a contribution today. We'll put it to good use with direct action countering the toxic ideology spoken of in the above article.
