About six to eight months ago, I kinda noticed the creation of a religious 'fraud'....evangelical in nature....attaching itself to a foundation, and being hyped up as a political device. Oddly enough....it anti-GOP. That's something that you would not have noticed a decade ago.
So today, it came up about this BIG private meeting going on....a select group of fifty evangelical ministers (the top elite from across the nation), who'd been invited up to Wheaton College (Chicago). This was supposed to be a two-day session and lay out some ideas and discussion, which everyone invited figured that it wouldn't be about the Presidency.
At some point yesterday...all heck broke loose and a number of folks just got up in the middle of discussions and left. The chatter that made them leave? Hyped up anti-Trump talk.
To the degree covered....no one wants to talk about the private group who arranged this meeting, or their agenda business. I noticed this with CNN, Washington Post, and NY Times.
My humble guess? These various politicized agenda groups have attached themselves to foundations, which talk of religious objectives, but tend to be very political in nature. If you look at the November schedule for elections....it's come to a time to gather the evangelical 'herd' and lead them out of the 'Trump-Valley'. Big shocker?
Basically, you'd have to build some religious argument that Democrats are on some moral high ground, and vote down against abortion and twenty other topics that evangelical topics. Well....it's awful hard for the Democrats to stand up in some church environment and hype their moral standing on these topics. So the foundation groups use what I'd call a proxy....this is a highly enthusiastic and charming minister who knows the inside to their agenda and is there to use the Jesus-talk and lead the 'herd' to the right position.
All of this is being done....with this mass meeting of the top fifty.....to lead onto a June meeting with a thousand-odd evangelical leaders from across the nation. They would get the right anti-Trump message and then lead their members to vote wildly in Novembers election.
If this group fails? That's a curious thing.
If people figure out the agenda...the 'fakes' involved....and the foundations hyping this anti-Trump theme, then the whole effort of the past decade will be laid out as a fraud. It has basically nothing to do with evangelical positions. It's just plain hype.
My guess? If more than half of these folks in the fifty-group have left.....it leaves twenty-five sitting there and positioning themselves to be part of the fraud later in June.
In some ways, it's comical. 'Jesus' for Democrats, and anti-Trump....imagine sitting in some church group and hyping the message.
