I read somewhere this morning a new term for the hipocrite Evangelical Xristians who seem to be advocating the ol’ Do as I say, not as I do version of the Gospel: Court Evangelicals, though I think Courtesan Christians might be more accurate.
Anyway, the redoubtable Nancy LeTourneau defines them thusly:
“John Fea, who chairs the History Department at Messiah College, came up with a name for the white evangelical leaders who continue to support Donald Trump no matter what he says or does. He calls them “court evangelicals” who, “like the attendants and advisers who frequented the courts of monarchs, seeks influence.”
We submit into Evidence the following pair of videos featuring noted grifter and false Xristian Robert Jeffress taking exact and opposing views of how the Evangelicals view the importance of (not?) compromising their beliefs.
First the Then:
And now the Now:
So what do we take away from this (besides that Jeffress charges $20, same as in town)? It is that there is no end to Xristian Conservative Hucksterism. (Prosperity Gospel, anyone?) It’s all end justifies the means with them.
Anyway, Courtesan Christians is our phrase for the day.
