A Look Inside Trump’s War Room

An interesting collection of bits and pieces from the various folks in and around the Trump campaign, compiled into a timeline. A year later, and it is still quite astonishing how much of a shock Trump’s victory was to everyone who thought they knew everything.

Just so she doesn’t think people post only to respond to her I am sure MEME will say you advocate rape because of your propagation of the Masculinist. Hopefully I beat her to it. I noticed the algorithm on facebook some years ago. That was the start of my withdraw from the site culminating in the deletion of my public profile. I would encourage everyone to withdraw. It is a useful tool to gather information but you have to know how to work around the algorithm, don’t let it be what you spend too much time on, and be very… Read more »

It’s a trap. Now she’ll say you only posted because you’re obsessing about her.

Yep. Unlike Facebook, MeMe’s algorithm is stupid simple. However, it can only be beaten with a ban or by
(a) no one replying to her or acknowledging her. Or better yet…
(b) no one commenting at all, since she’ll still reply to other comments and pick fights

Why bash MeMe? People have different experiences and opinions. I appreciate hers though I oft disagree. I can’t think of a good reason to ban her. Now maybe if she were advocating banning others or completely ignoring them so that they would feel hated and leave…

“MeMe’s algorithm is stupid simple.”

Constantly calling me names, showing such disrespect for a Christian mom and grandma, and begging Pastor Wilson to ban me is not exactly the epitome of masculinity. Just saying.

Stupid simple = very simple. I didn’t call anyone a name. Once again, you’re projecting. As I’ve said before, your fruits here have disqualified you from the sweet, Chrstian wife/mom/grandmom act.

And White Southern Christians are now openly defending the sexual molester of teenagers because voting for Republicans is more important than….literally anything.

Did I not tell ya’all last year that this is EXACTLY what compromising on Trump would bring? I don’t think you come even close yet to understanding the enormous damage this is doing and will continue to do to the Christian witness in America and abroad. This is a dark, dark time, and I feel sick to my stomach.

Take heart, Jonathan. There’s something good about dragging all the dirty laundry out into the sunlight and giving it a good airing. The Christian witness in America and abroad has been far more damaged by decades of toxic secrets and hypocrisy than by people speaking the truth.

Sometimes I think the only ones unaware of the conservative Christian propensity for sexual perversion and hypocrisy…. are conservative Christians.

You wouldn’t believe the amount of junk Christianity (or churchianity) that is spread around the world from the United States. Heavy shepherding, seeker-sensitivity, health and wealth, love yourself, MacArthurville … You have an evangelical establishment with an appalling track record of actually dealing with sexual and other abuse, and a suvivor blog community who are its mirror image – mostly embittered women who make genuine exposure of wrong-doing harder because it appears accusations of abuse only come from professional whiners. That said, I am glad there are some blogs in the States that actually do provide edification and food for… Read more »

What do you mean by MacArthurville?

The stable that organised the Strange Fire conference, including the Pyromaniacs or Fred Butler. Sadly Pyro descended into little more than an obsession with correct doctrine and exposing the errors of others, and bullying of dissenting opinions when Johnson’s sidekicks took over. I have no problem with correct doctrine, far from it, but the obsession with being right. I think this brand exported a kind of Christianity rejected by a friend of mine recently in the UK, who formerly actually worked for Grace to You who said to me ‘I got tired of being the frozen chosen’. The attitude problem.… Read more »

I’m not sure that we have the same definition of “junk Christianity”, but I am very well aware of the enormous degree to which American churches have influenced overseas Christianity. The four trends that I see as by far the most common, and the most damaging, are prosperity gospel, the pushing of recent distortions in endtimes theology, an incorporation of American political arguments, and overreliance on infrastructure/technology/things you have to spend money on.

I don’t know of a “conservative Christian propensity for sexual perversion and hypocrisy”, we seem to be about as vulnerable to it as nearly everyone else. I do see a profound tendency to pretend that it’s only “our enemies” who have the problem though. And I’m not worried by people speaking the truth. If this was all about people speaking the truth about Moore (a positive continuation of the trend that started with Weinstein, then went to Spacey and started getting all the others), that would have been great. The issue has been his defenders. Weinstein was thrown to the… Read more »

“It appears right now that the only way to commit sexual misconduct and keep your job is to be a Republican politician who claims that they will fight for Christian values.” It’s always about power, Jonathan. Whoever is part of the inner ring, the perceived powerful of the moment, will get away with whatever they want. It’s always the out group who suffers for their actions. The in-group is always protected. Those who would sell 14 yr olds down the river in favor of ideology and politics are enough to rot your soul for sure. The ones who excuse, cover… Read more »

Roy Moore is no one’s idea of “inner ring.”

Now then, what ever happened to the presumption of innocence?

My issue is the men who are claiming that we should support Moore even if he is guilty: Statements like these are what I find most damning for the community: “After a long pause, Alabama Bibb County Republican chairman Jerry Pow tells me he’d vote for Roy Moore even if Moore did commit a sex crime against a girl. “I would vote for Judge Moore because I wouldn’t want to vote for Doug,” he says. “I’m not saying I support what he did.” “It was 40 years ago,” Alabama Marion County GOP chair David Hall tells me. “I really don’t… Read more »

The response of some evangelical Christians toward Trump goes beyond merely compromising, there seems to be plenty of outright enthusiasm, and yes that is damaging to Christian credibility. However, if you are talking about Roy Moore (or anyone else,) mightn’t you wait for an impartial investigation and a fair trial before you declare him a sexual molester of teenagers? If those things never happen then allegations remain no more than that. I don’t know what, if anything, he did and at this point neither do you. If rushing to defend based on what you want to believe is wrong, how… Read more »
