How do shithead politicians reconcile their poor-hating, gun-pushing, immigrant-targeting policies with the Christian religion, which worships an impoverished middle eastern refugee baby who grew up to advocate nonviolent socialist ideals?
Christianist hate churches, that’s how. In every state in this country where policy makers are fucking the poor, the brown, and the vulnerable, they are being applauded and empowered by pastors and congregations that teach them that God himself sanctions stomping a jackboot on the most needy among us.
Christianist hate churches are the ideological motors of the far right. They are where the most disgusting impulses in our country receive social and “divine” validation.
Case in point: Berean Church of Nebraska is a megachurch whose congregation includes a roster of jackboots propping themselves up on a Bible. Most recently, congregant Doug Peterson, Attorney General of the State of Nebraska, co-signed a letter asking Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III to make it easier to deport Dreamers—he literally worships an immigrant on Sundays and wants help from Trump to bust up immigrant families on Mondays.
Fuck that piece of shit.
Nebraska Betsies held a demonstration in front of the church yesterday morning, where the congregation gaped, gasped, and offered up the single-finger Berean Salute as they rolled into church. At one point church security—which is armed at Berean—tried to intimidate the Betsies by driving by at a crawl wearing a doucheketeer bluetooth earpiece and filming them as closely as possible for later wanking in the church situation room.
