Moore, Trump and the Rights New Religion

For the three decades that followed, I could count on one thing: the
conservative right was the religious right. That was its branding, if not
always its behavior. It was as if the foot soldiers for the conservative
right had read only half of the Bible they thumped. They were harsh and
vindictive like the God of the Old Testament, not generous and inclusive
like the Jesus of the New Testament.

.

Then there were the hypocrites, condemning sexual liberation while being
secretly lascivious, their railing against gays later exposed as a form of
gay panic.

.

But now, all the pretense of any moral majority and moral authority has
vanished into the very impulses that fed it: Tribal racial/ethnic anxiety,
panic and hostility, patriarchy and sexism, and a perceived threat
presented by the full acceptance and inclusion of L.G.B.T. identities.

.

Piety is now postscript. The principal motivation now is anger, fear of
cultural displacement, and anxiety about the erosion of privilege and the
guarantees it once provided, from physical safety to financial security.

.

You can peg any number of moments in recent history when the objective
seemed to change for the members of the religious right, where they
swallowed all pride and principle to secure power and vent anger, but for
me there is none more glaring than the embrace of Donald Trump.

.

Trump is clearly not a religious man, unless you believe being
compulsively devilish is a form of religiosity. He is mean and surly. He
is a bully. He is a pathological liar. He cheats. He is an adulterer. He
is twice-divorced with children by three different women. He bragged, on
tape, about assaulting women. He says he doesnt think he has ever asked
God for forgiveness.

.

Trump was a walking, talking rebuke of everything the Christian right had
ever told me that it stood for, and yet Republican voters either held
their noses or thrust their fists in the air and voted for him anyway.

.

The anger that gave birth to Trump was a death notice for Republican
religious principles. Now, if you ask me what the Republican Party stands
for, Im not sure I can tell you. All I see is regression, wealth worship,
nationalism and white supremacy. Maybe thats it. I no longer see Christ in
that equation.

.

In the wake of all that, we now have the former Alabama Supreme Court
judge Roy Moore running for the U.S. Senate as a Republican. Moore has
been accused by multiple women in Alabama of having inappropriate sexual
contact with them when they were still minors and he was in his 30s,
working as a district attorney.

.

.

Not to mention the people interviewed by The New Yorker who say that Moore
was banned from a local mall for harassing girls.

.

What has been most distressing and revelatory is the contortions Moores
supporters have put themselves in to try to defend him against the
allegations.
