I, as a Jewish guy, have a question about Christianity or, more specifically, fundamentalist

or evangelical Christianity. Not meaning to be provocative, a shit-stirrer or belligerent, but a couple responses to one of my posts about my Trump-humping Christian in-laws got me thinking about what one of my college philosophy profs told us. The topic was along the lines of, is a particular strain of philosophical thought really defined by its original principles, or rather is it defined by what its current adherents say it is?

Now again, I am NOT meaning to be provocative or insulting but I've had a lot of people recently tell me that the fundamentalist Christian #MAGA zealots are NOT true Christians, then go on to explain that this is so because they are not following the teachings of Jesus. I suppose this would not be unlike a Jew living in a way that was contrary to our scripture and faith traditions. Anyway, with such a huge (yuuge) percentage of professed Christians embracing Trumpism and the political far-right, does the definition of what makes one a Christian change? Does Donald Trump effectively become a Christian because a majority of Christians say he's one? Any input or thoughts are much appreciated. It's something I've been thinking about a lot lately.

My Trump-humping Christian in-laws are actually praying for RBG to die!

How do I know this? Sometimes my wife's dad accidentally includes the email address we use for family stuff when he forwards his bullshit #MAGA prayer chains, conspiracy theories and memes. Apparently his Bible study group has a weekly "prayer focus" and this week it's for gawd to kill Ruth Badger Ginsburg.

So tell me again how Christianity is a religion of love?

I wonder, did Trump just have his "Dukakis in the tank" moment?

The visuals are...not good.
