Among the millions of words published everyday about Donald Trump, there is little analysis of the Christianity he represents. His words and actions mirror quite precisely this branch. The believers in this branch might be on their knees thanking the almighty for sending a President who matches their religious convictions with their politics.
A first theological principle of evangelical Trump supporters is the wedding of church and state. This is imposing the theological ideas of white evangelicals onto the entire population. Anti abortion and gay marriage are star witnesses.
A second theological principle is that power is good. Power is evidence of God’s approval. Cheers go up when a group on the outside, those who want abortion rights or gay marriage, are harmed by the preferences of the President.
A third is that God’s acceptance of people is limited. If you are a group on the outside of this acceptance it is fine for evangelicals to insult and enact prejudices against you. This especially is true if you are poor or among less powerful groups including women.
Forth, the ends justify the means. Yes, Trump is a jerk who lies, cheats on wives and stiffs those to whom he owes money. This does not matter because he will appoint anti abortion judges and insult those we do not like.
As we can see, this is not traditional conservative political thinking. Conservative thinking is keeping government small which is not mentioned above. Equal opportunity for every citizen is not mentioned either.
