Appalled & Ashamed: Black Lives Matter, Trumpian Evangelicalism, & the Abomination of Desolation

I can’t even begin to explain the horrendous mix of emotions I felt this morning when I woke up and saw the news: President Trump, standing in front of St. John’s Church in Washington D.C., holding up a Bible, surrounded by riot police and soldiers, deaf to the cries of protestors all around him, silent to the anger and despair surrounding George Floyd’s death.

If this is Christianity, then I want no part in it.
