Right-Wing Evangelicals Slam Soros for 'Killing America,' Ask Progressive Christians to Repent

Evangelical author and pundit Eric Metaxas is among those promoting an attack on progressive philanthropist George Soros and progressive religious groups by the American Association of Evangelicals. The group describes its three minute video, promoted via email on Thursday, as an expose of “the Soros network infiltration of the Church.” The AAE says Soros network funding for progressive religious activists is an effort to “confuse and divide the Christian vote,” which the AAE believes should be directed toward the “pro-faith, pro-life Republican party.”

“Imagine the evil of using a Christian front to de-Christianize a culture and nation,” the video states.

In a press release distributed last week to promote the video, AAE co-founder spokesperson Kelly Monroe Kullberg spouted the kind of conspiratorial rhetoric that has been embraced by far-right extremists, with sometimes deadly results:

Americans hate manipulation. Most now realize that the demoralization of America is not inevitable; it is being purchased. Anti-American globalists like Soros are funding a growth industry of paid anarchists and political activists to divide and weaken America, including the church. This brief video is a powerful tool and wake-up call to the church and nation.

AAE’s website also includes a 15-minute version of the video released in 2016 called “Soros’s Formula for Killing America: A Brief Guide, for Americans.”

That version includes extensive attacks on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and fearmongering about Muslims registering to vote. “This is now our fight for the faith, for our nation, and for the human race, against a godless, dehumanizing machine,” the narrator intones over visuals from the good-vs.-evil epic “Lord of the Rings.”

I swear it's like playing a game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, except there's just one degree, and everything is George Soros' fault!

1. Those evangelicals are not really Christians

Just because they call themselves "Christian" doesn't mean that they actually practice the teachings of Jesus about peace, love, tolerance, patience, forgiveness, generosity, hospitality.

They are instead a degenerate cult of privilege, condescension, division, hatred, greed, and vengence.

3. It's strange how they never mention Adelson?

He is responsible for destabilizing Israel Palentstine and giving all that tainted gambling money to repuke candidates. Too me gambling money and repukes are two evils.

At least Soros is giving money to people to have democracy. We on the left really need to villianize Adelson like the right villianizes Soros.

4. Which would be great except we don't have the propaganda arm they do.

If we did I would say go for it.

5. From the Book of Bastardizations: "And, Lo, there came from out of the Land of Cotton a swarm

of Grifters and Charlatans whose god was called "Self". Having a found reality far too complex and unprofitable for creatures of their self-perceived superiority, they set about creating a set of strict rules to government all aspects of peoples' lives EXCEPT, of course, those people who were "righteous" enough to worship Self.

Having been blessed by being born in Yooessuvay, a land where freedom of religion is guaranteed as a part of every citizen's birthright, they soon declared themselves "Bornagains" and insisted that they were "obviously" superior to mortals only born once. In addition, they preached that this superiority entitled them to govern the personal lives of the entire tribe of the Onceborn and they decreed that any Onceborn who failed or refused to follow THEIR rules was an "Infringer" on THEIR "freedom of religion"!

"Thou shittest me" cried all the Onceborn when first they heard the Bornagains' decree! "We are free thinking Onceborns and we insist that, while you may cherish that dogma if you choose, you must keep it on a leash."

"But, but---" began the Bornagains'.

"But, nothing" roared the Onceborns in unison! "Butt out of other peoples' lives, lest they rise up and smite thee---(if thou catcheth our drift)!"

And, so, it came to pass that the Bornagains' withdrew back into the Land of Cotton---yea, even unto Lynchburg---and turned there efforts back to steering hurricanes and concealing their porn histories.

6. Who needs to repent, Mr. Anti-Semitic Nutcase?

This goon is far closer to hell than even a hooker--and progressive Christians are closer to heaven than any self-righteous, right-wing evangelical swindler preaching evil in the name of God!

8. Political Christians rather than Christians of faith.

Political Christians rather than Christians of faith.

They support Trump who says he is so perfect that he does not need Christ or his forgiveness.

Like today's evangelical/religious right supporters, Trump is a Political Christian, not a Christian of faith.

Evangelicals/religious right are easily able to spin their beliefs for political expediency.

The Donald who does not have to ask Jesus for forgiveness.

The Donald who ridicules Holy Communion.

Trump: Drink my little wine, have my little cracker

9. Evangelicals believe only Evangelicals are REAL CHRISTIANS. Metaxas claims Bonhoeffer on his side

That co-opting of Bonhoeffer is unbelievably sickening.

Bonhoeffer and several of his brothers were executed by the Nazis for their part in opposing Hitler.

Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth were leaders of the Confessing Church that broke with the established Lutheran Church over its allegiance to Hitler.
