Letter: Response on Christians and Trump yields word salad

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Here is my reaction to Carl Mumpower’s response to John Penley’s letter about Christians vis-a-vis Trump: a word salad that doesn’t really say much and is full of stereotypes and unfounded conclusions [“How Do Conservative Christians Square Support for Trump?” April 4, Xpress].

I wonder whether he is aware that the synonyms for truism are platitude and banality? Poor Carl — he tries so hard to sound like an intellectual and only comes off sounding like a jackass — except maybe to people who are easily fooled.

    Thanks for your letter about Mumpower’s response to my letter. Here is a link to what I believe is the insanity that Mumpower and Trump are pushing and the apocalyptic Evangelical bigoted world view that they are preaching along with Franklin Graham. It is not all that different than fundamentalist Islamic jihadists world views and bigotry. Totally NUTS !!!!…………………https://www.thedailybeast.com/trumps-pastor-the-jerusalem-embassy-and-the-end-of-days

    Christians are Americas terrorist. Absolutely no different than the “radical Islamist” they despise so much.

      No they haven’t silly-
      They use guns in black churches and cars during neo Nazi rallies.

    If you want to see the POTENTIAL threat of Christian evangelicals ruling America, read Ralph Peters’ novel “The War After Armageddon”.
