Why Fundies Cling to Trump in Spite of his Sinful and Outlandish Behavior

One of my favorite Christian writers is Dr. Susan M. Shaw at Oregon State University.  She earned an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Women Studies and English at Oregon State University.  She also holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in the field of Religious Education from Southern Seminary, which is one of the several famous Southern Baptist Convention seminaries. In addition to being a college professor, she is an ordained Baptist minister who makes her home in The United Church of Christ.

Trump, a man observed by many to be a loudmouthed, outlandish, sinful, and incorrigible reprobate who demonstrates day-in and day-out that he is an unstable man who is “unstable in all his ways?” (James 1:8)

Who knows the answer to this great and thoroughly mysterious question. Well, Jesus of Nazareth knows for certain.  Who else might know?   This guy probably knows:

Come with me now and read a recent short article by Dr. Susan Shaw. I think she knows it too.  Here are her best answers to this great question that is shrouded in deep mystery.  You may do so by clicking on the following safe link:
