Explaining The Evangelical Support For Trump [SATIRE]

Repeat post from Feb. 29, 2016:

For full disclosure, I am not an Evangelical Christian.  In fact, I am not even a Christian, I am Jewish, but maybe that allows me to step back from the trees to see the forest.  

Many people are wondering how can so many of the evangelical leaders [and evangelicals] support and be a strong advocate for a person who would seem to be totally antithetical to the ideals of an Evangelical Christian. 

Let me try to explain.  Just like much of the rest of the GOP, evangelicals in the party are mad at what is going on in Washington, D.C.  They are mad at the Republican Party not seeming to stand strong for what they were elected for. They are mad at the "go along to get along" Republican establishment.  

So, when someone who comes along who can stick it to the establishment elite, who can blame them for supporting that person.  When someone comes along who is not politically correct and who says what they mean and mean what they say, Evangelical Christians stand up and cheer.

Who cares that the person they support may be a vulgar, not very religious, narcissistic, demagogue - characteristics you would think be opposite of those of the religious right.  Who cares that this person seems to know little about the policies of the day.  Who cares that the person is clueless on foreign policy/national security issues.  

What counts is this person is strong in standing up for their beliefs and doing so in an "in your face" not politically correct way.  Who cares that this person may insult women, Mexicans, physically disabled people, war heroes, because this person says what they mean and mean what they say and they will stick it to the establishment

The fact that the establishment hates this person is good enough for a large portion of evangelicals.  That is why Evangelical Christians all around this nation will be saying with their votes, stuff it establishment elite.  

Yes, that explains the evangelical's support for ... Madalyn Murray O'Hair. 
She will stick it to the establishment - and that's good enough for us - We have our priorities!
Yes, that could be why Evangelical Christian leaders are saying, this is why we announce our strong support for "Oh...Hair".
