In terms they should understand: Evangelicals supporting Trump are Whited Sepulchers


Definition of whited sepulcher

1

a person inwardly corrupt or wicked but outwardly or professedly virtuous or holy : hypocrite



Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead menís bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. (Matthew 23:25-28)

1. I hope this does not offend you...really.

But this reminds me of Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction. Which I enjoyed!

2. Evangelical preachers ...

... wrote Letters to the Editor down here in South Carolina supporting Trump. They were careful to note that they were doing so as private citizens and not as god's messengers on Earth. Can't give up that sweet, sweet tax exemption, ya'll!

4. You realize that "sepulcher"

 

is a three syllable word- most of them will have no idea what one is.

6. Calling them modern-day Pharisees is more effective.

At least in my experience.

7. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (R)

There you have it* - that's the majority of the GOP and Corporate Newslike Product, Inc. (R)

* "within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity"
