White 'born-again' leaders trade gospel for identity politics
CAROL STREAM, Illinois (ChurchMilitant.com) - Elite white evangelicals have launched vicious attacks on Trump 'deplorables,' claiming that the Capitol Hill "atrocity" was "brought to us by the white, evangelical church in America."
Belying the religious, racial and class diversity of Trump's supporters, evangelicals like clergywoman Tish Harrison Warren are accusing the "white American church" and the "heresy of Christian nationalism" for the Epiphany protest.
Parade of Trump-Bashers
Writing in the flagship evangelical magazine Christianity Today (CT), Warren noted that "the symbols of faith — Jesus' name, cross and message — have been co-opted to serve the cultish end of Trumpism."
CT, started by world-famous evangelist Dr. Billy Graham, called for Trump to be impeached and removed from office in 2019 "out of loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments."
A celebrity lineup of white evangelicals from megachurch pastors John Piper and Rick Warren to Baptist ethicist Russell Moore to TV preacher Beth Moore and missiologist Ed Stetzer — who remained largely silent during months of Black Lives Matter rioting, arson and vandalism — are condemning Trump and his loyalists as the foot soldiers of an idolatrous insurrection.
The evangelical leaders freeze out the significant portion of Trump-voting Catholics who made their presence at the Capitol Hill rally felt by praying the Rosary and carrying large crosses, as well as non-white pro-Trump celebrities with substantial online audiences.

So now, any American who was at the rally, or still is a Trump supporter, just ain’t Jeezusee enough?
The latest buzzword. I'm not sure what they even mean by that.
No offense to evangelicals (I used to be one), but I have noticed there are some professional evangelicals who are always about the business of reinventing themselves, usually to accommodate themselves better to the world.
Tish Harrison Warren is Anglican, not Evangelical. There is a difference. I have nothing to learn from any mainline denomination...they sold out to Satan decades ago.
These so called religious leaders have exposed themselves just like the others. Satan has willing workers right in the pulpit. We have prayed for God to unveil evil and our prayers are being answered. We didn’t fathom how deep the swamp really was and is.
Thank you. I didn’t know who she was.
For a minute, I thought they were talking about Rick Warren. ;-)
In their minds only.
No Bible-believing, Christ-honoring Christian I know reads that trashy magazine.
Perhaps the ultimate in words to be placed in the Dictionary of Oxymorons.
There is no insurrection. It is obvious that they get their information from the main stream media. I would think any Christian knows not to do that. They have no discernment. It's astonishing.
Thank you for that.
Social justice is a cancer in the evangelical church.
They are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Jesus Christ warned us about these types.
“...No Bible-believing, Christ-honoring Christian I know reads that trashy magazine....”
Agree. These people give true Christians a bad name.
I would hardly call apostate false teachers such as rick warren an Evengelical leader. He has one arm around the pope and another around the iman claiming they all worship the same (g)od.
He is no more an Evengelical than joel olsteen is.
I never heard of it.
Can’t be stated enough, in fact I believe we should carry white boards into Church every worship session and hold up what you stated before Church and during the sermon if the message starts going “off the rails”.
The Disciples Of Christ (My denomination) is a big part of this.
My former preacher (promoted up) signed the letter to VP Pence.
I may have lost my church.
These fake Christians at CT can go stuff themselves.
Nope, false reporting. Anyone there, and saw this, knows that this is NOT the way it happened.
