This is the ninety-second installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip taken from a discussion between convicted felon and con artist Jim Bakker and Ramiro Peña, pastor of Christ the King Baptist Church in Waco, Texas. Please put on your tinfoil hat before watching this video. You have been warned!
Bakker and Peña shamelessly campaign for Donald Trump while warning that a non-Trump president — the unnamed Hillary Clinton — will likely make Christianity illegal and pack the Federal courts with justices who will do the non-Trump president’s evil bidding. Like I said, make sure you wear your tinfoil hat.

Well that’s it. I am convinced.
Wow, those are some really smart guys!!!
Some years ago I occasionally watched Jim on the PTL Club when him and Tammy Faye would talk as though they had a perfect marriage. I was somewhat naive in those days and was quite surprised by the subsequent revelations and his fall from grace.
But what really staggers me now is that knowing his background he would still have a following.
He isn’t wrong from his perspective, and I’m glad. I’m glad that the Reagan social conservative run of the supreme court is about to end. It would be a problem if the minority of liberals dwindled to nothing. It takes a generation to flush out the court so we’d be living under Christian sharia for the time being.
When they say Christianity will be banned, what they really mean is Christian sharia that pops up and intrudes upon our secular state, and yes yes yes, hopefully this is what will happen.
(Actually it will take a critical mass of atheists/nones voting as a block to really start moving things like elimination of ceremonial deism, and the tax freebies church and clergy get)
