Democrats, Never Trump Republicans, Progressive and Apolitical Christians – A Double Standard – “You Can’t Vote For X And Be A ‘Real’ Christian and be in the ‘Cult of X'” – The Left Have Turned Politics Into a Religious Cult
I did not vote for Trump in either election (nor did I vote for Hillary or for Joe Biden), but I am baffled at the avalanche of on-going animosity not just of the man (i.e., Trump) but of anyone who did vote for him.
Even now that Biden is the President Elect and will be taking office in about a month’s time (meaning Trump will be on his way out shortly, so there is no point in salivating in fury over the man any longer), Trump’s up-coming exit to a Democrat entering the office, has not done much to put a dent into the non-stop Trump hate I see on my social media time lines.
The sanctimonious warnings and index- finger- waving, scolding, tut-tuttings, usually by liberals, (but sometimes by “Never Trump” conservative or apolitical or milque-toast Christians), who write pieces saying that other Christians should not turn Trump into an idol, are particularly grating.
I am not a Democrat.
I never enjoy it when a Democrat wins any office, but especially not when we have a Democrat President.
I sat through Jimmy Carter’s time, Bill Clinton’s and Obama’s. But I recognized that each guy, due to term limits, will get only four to eight years in office at a time, and so I grit my teeth and put up with it until, mercifully, another Republican got into office. Why Democrats and Progressives cannot cope this way, I have never understood.
The thing I find perhaps the most grating, other than the constant vilification and bullying of anyone who voted for a particular politician (in this case, Trump), are these condescending editorials shaming Christians about their vote, who say “Trumpism has become a cult, beware.”
Sometimes, these annoying pieces are written by conservative Never Trump Christians or, at other times, by progressive Christians.
These pieces strike me as being terribly smugly pious, and I am very tired of them.
But there is a double standard or two going on here.
Trump haters, whether conservative or liberal, have turned politics into an Idol. It’s not the right only doing this.
Leftists see the government, politics, and forcing liberal views on to school children, office workers and everyone else, (views such as “Critical Race Theory,” “white fragility,” and more), as being the solutions for American society.
Anti-Trump conservatives and liberals have turned concepts such as “white privilege” and so forth into religious-like dogma which they defend and promote, well, religiously.
They will burn anyone at the stake as heretic who doesn’t agree with their liberal views or who doesn’t agree with unvarnished Trump hate.
