Thoughts on Evangelicalism

Evangelicals writ large have contaminated and corrupted Christian faith; at least insofar as many have come to understand and embrace the Faith. Hatred and intolerance form the core values of evangelicals. They are self-righteous ideologues who believe that they and only they hold any true faith. Yet, they are among the least faithful and the […]

Email to Kathleen Parker, WaPo, 19 FEB 2018

Dear Ms. Parker: In your column in yesterday’s Sunday Washington Post, your next to last paragraph reads, “Politicians don’t change or fix things until their constituents demand it . . .” That is a huge part of our national problem.

Our Republic is in its worst state perhaps in all her history. The Trump White House is aggressively trying to undermine the FBI and the Department of Justice. Trump believes he should CONTROL both, thereby eliminating the arms’ length and objective relationship necessary. It is obvious Trump and his congressional Republicans are taking pages out […]
