Donald Trump did this for his evangelical base who have been drooling from their open sores for it now since TV Evangelists and Ronald Reagan turned American Christianity into a corrupt Right-wing money machine preying on the weak and stupid.
Here is a recent poll about the end times, or the genocide of about 7 billion people. God did it once before just for some sexual goings on in a couple of cities, so nothing stopping him from doing it again but even more BIGLY.
Do you, personally, believe that the world is currently living in the ‘end times’ as described by prophecies in the Bible, or not?
27% of Catholics – Yes
41% of Americans – Yes
54% of Protestants – Yes
77% of Evangelicals – Yes
What the question misses is that 77% of Evangelicals not only believe it but are peeing their pants for it to happen. The murder of 7 billion people to save their own ass gives them joy.
It is not just the ignorance, the intolerance, the bigotry, the racism, the bile, the hate, the right-wing politics and the profit that drives evangelical Christianity but a genocidal worldview. American Exceptionalism.
