Do the Media(D) realize that they’ve played this card so many times it’s transparent?
Let me know when this sounds familiar.
First, the media wants to target a group they disagree with. (It might be Christians, Republicans, Constitutionalists, or whatever.)
Then they seek out someone tangentially related to that group, but who shares the beliefs they want to propagate. (Bonus points if they are related to a high-profile thought leader of that ‘other’ camp.)
Then they elevate that person to ‘expert’ in having the inside scoop for the group they are trying to build a narrative against.
Watch from about the 7:25 mark and again at the 13:00 mark:
Francis Schaeffer was a Giant among not just Christian thought-leaders of the 20th Century.. but scholars, as well. And some would argue that only CS Lewis could be in the same ‘weight class’ for his influence in the 20th Century in bringing non-Christians over to Christian belief.
The son is walking a very different path than his father.
“The Christians who still support Trump — who is now separating mothers from babies — are now condoning a form of child abuse,” he started. But it only gets worse. “I can’t think of anything that could be more Jesus-hating. This isn’t just Jesus-disobeying — this is Jesus-hating. Everything that the Gospel stands for is contradicted,” said Schaeffer.
“There are going to be repercussions for the Republican party that have gone along like pimps of evil with this President,” said Schaeffer. Yup. ‘Pimps of evil.’
And then, he explains that ‘white evangelical voters are the problem.’
“White evangelical voters have become the problem. We put this man in power, and it is up to white evangelicals to do what Franklin Graham did and step up, but do more than Franklin Graham did and say this is not only disgusting and unbiblical — it is evil,” said Schaeffer. I guess these rules don’t apply to black evangelicals?
“Part of it is, this is a reaction to eight years of a black man being in the White House. Part of this support for Trump is just straight-out reaction to that — racism,” said Schaeffer. “There’s always a search for the next enemy that’s going to help the white evangelical racist church, raise money, fire up their people, make them angry, and now make them vote Republican… Are you trying to follow Jesus? And if you are, you have to repent of what you’ve done.”

It’s racism, is it?
What about all the black Christian Republican voters? Do they share the blame or nah?
Frank Shaeffer has called himself an ‘Atheist that believes in God’, and he thinks that if you don’t tick all the progressive boxes, then you’re not a good Christian and most likely a racist.
Frank Shaeffer probably couldn’t point out a ‘good’ Christian despite having been raised by two of them.
Obviously Frank is a little fuzzy on Matthew 7:
“Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.

So, is Plank Eye Shaeffer right or ridiculous?
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
