I'll start with this clown, Mastriano, and his sidekick, Torba, as an example to kick off with (but I won't name a certain backer).

Mastriano under fire for payment to 'Christian nationalist' platform.

Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for governor in Pennsylvania, has come under fire from critics for ties to a right-wing social media platform whose founder has said there's no room for Jews, atheists and others in the conservative movement.

Mastriano, a state-senator backed by former President Donald Trump, paid $5,000 in April to Gab for "advertising consulting," state campaign finance records showed.

Democrats and Republicans alike have criticized Mastriano for his association with Gab, the social media platform on which a gunman who killed 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018 posted his antisemitic rants.

Founded by Andrew Torba in 2016, some Gab users contemplated plans on the platform to disrupt the ascertainment of Joe Biden's victory on Jan. 6, 2021. Torba has said his aim is to foster in a "Christian nationalist" society, called for the conservative movement to be "exclusively Christian" and frequently espouses anti-Semitic views....

...Speaking to NBC News, Shapiro, who is Jewish, said Mastriano's use of Gab should be looked at not under the lens of religion, but extremism....

Religion is BEAUTIFUL.


Does this include the religions that kidnapped thousands of children from their families with full governmental authorization and oversight, imprisoned them in "schools" where they were forcefully delivered to predatory adults made pedophiles by the religious denial of their normal healthy sexuality, who raped them often repeatedly, physically abused them, neglected them in overcrowded conditions so they became diseased, and then shamefully hid their bodies in unmarked graves when disease or abuse or suicide or hypothermia for the escapees ended their short lives?

Well that's what happened here at least when government and religion weren't forcefully separated. Now that it's legally fashionable to ignore the first amendment, I'm sure you'll have plenty (more) homegrown examples soon enough.

Our own right wing religious nutter, SloMo, makes this list.

Morrison accepting cash payments for speaking gigs.

...At the event he revealed God had a plan for him, described anxiety as “Satan’s plan” and called for people to put their faith in Christ over governments.

“We trust in Him. We don’t trust in governments. We don’t trust the United Nations, thank goodness,” Morrison said in the Sunday sermon.

“We don’t trust in all of these things, fine as they might be and as important as the role that they play. Believe me, I’ve worked in it, and they are important.”

He also told the churchgoers that his election loss was part of God’s plan.

“Do you believe that if you lose an election that God still loves you and has a plan for you?” he asked.

“I do. I still believe in miracles. God has secured your future, all of it. Yeah, even that bit.”...
Thank f#%& we dumped him.

For such abuse of a fine old religion, we may well see the puppet Russian church being burnt along with the controlling despots...

Hopefully, people with slightly more sane heads will push Pootin aside before he destroys their heaven aswel as our earth...

Herschel loves "free" enterprise with cheap labour while pushing the "christian" theme and raking in the cash.

Walker's chicken firm tied to benefits from unpaid labor.

....It’s not possible to quantify any financial gains Walker might have gleaned over the years from undervalued labor. But some lawyers have derided the operation in question, Oklahoma-based Christian Alcoholics & Addicts in Recovery Inc., as a residential “work camp” that profits from a “vulnerable workforce under the guise of providing alcohol and drug counseling and rehabilitation services.”...

Just another reason and the IRS should finally get tough on them all.

Churches are breaking the law by endorsing in elections — but the IRS is looking the other way.

Now this could do with having its own separate investigative committee.

Major Christian leaders asked Jan. 6 committee to investigate Christian nationalism.

A group of prominent Christian leaders, including the heads of major denominations, say they submitted a letter earlier this year to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, urging members to examine Christian nationalism and arguing the ideology played a crucial role in the insurrection.

Organizers of the letter, which has not previously been disclosed, told Religion News Service they were approached by a committee investigator on the topic. The resulting statement, dated June 2, was facilitated by Christians Against Christian Nationalism, an effort orchestrated by the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty.

“The ideology of Christian nationalism helped motivate and intensify the insurrection,” the letter reads in part. “We ask the Committee to thoroughly investigate the role that Christian nationalism played in the attack. This investigation into Christian nationalism is important so that history does not repeat itself and so that we understand this threat to our country’s historic commitment to religious liberty and the importance of defeating it.”...
If religions want to play in politics then they should pay high taxes.

If those religious nutters want to meddle in politics then they should be paying top taxes for that privilege.

Evangelical 'prophets' have become top GOP surrogates waging 'spiritual warfare' against Dems.
