"Conservative Christian"? Now THAT is an oxymoron

What can be more liberal than a long haired, sandal wearing, bearded man cavorting around a nation with a prostitute and twelve men as his posse? One that dined with (for shame!) sinners? One that said if someone asks for your cloak, give him your shirt as well? To turn the other cheek if struck? That preached love and acceptance of all people? I could go on and on.

The point is, a conservative Christian is not a Christian at all. These people have taken his words and twisted them to fit whatever narrative or agenda they desire. A prime example is their continued infatuation with a man that has more satanic traits than Christian. And although his misdeeds and crimes are made clear to the entire world, they look the other way and are ready to enshrine him as King and dictator.

Conservative? Maybe. Fascist? Absolutey. But Christian? HELL NO!

From it's elevation to the state religion of the Roman Empire in the 4th century to the present day, the christian religion has been a predominantly conservative social force.
