So Franklin Graham thinks the demons are at it again.
The president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelical Association told Eric Metaxas, a host of a Salem Radio Network talk show, that “Well, I believe it’s almost a demonic power that is trying—” when Metaxas asked him why the left was picking on poor, sweet Donald Trump. Not happy to let Graham finish his thought, Metaxas jumped in with “I would disagree. It’s not almost demonic. You know and I know, at the heart, it’s a spiritual battle.”
You can’t even disagree with these RWNJs* without them invoking demons.
It must be exhausting, though, for the evangelical crowd. So many demons creating so much hate and discontent, and nobody except their righteous selves to fight the hellspawn. They believe God himself appointed Trump to the Presidency, and that Satan has been working overtime to ruin it all.
What gets me is how freaked out they were when Bill Clinton got caught with his pants down, but the admission that Trump paid a porn star hush money to cover up his tryst with her gets hardly a passing glance. Newt Gingrich (who was cheating on his wife at the time) and Lindsey Graham both tore into Clinton about his moral failings, but now seem to think Trump’s indiscretions are nothing of import. Something’s going on there. Maybe they have some demons of their own. Maybe those demons are Russian, and have names like Kompromat.
Whatever the case, a certain segment of the evangelicals are blaming things on demons. You can’t have a rational discussion with people who believe in such things, so all we can do is vote Trump and the Republicans out next November (assuming Trump isn’t removed by the Senate after being impeached by the House) and let the right-wing echo chamber yell itself hoarse about God’s will being undone by all these demons (as if the will of creator of the Universe could be undone by anything… come on guys, is your sky-buddy all-powerful, or not??).
