Donald Trump And Rightwing Christians Agree On Keeping Women In Their Place

Donald Trump is no Christian. But Slacktivist has a post on the common ground the candidate does have with guys like Jerry Falwell, Jr., and why they support him.

When these guys find their infallible authority questioned by some uppity woman, they do what they have always done — for generations. They appeal to tribal gatekeepers to either force this woman to get back in her place, or to make an example of her by having her fired...

This is all part of a story about a critical essay about Trump written by Rachel Held Evans, and how it caused Falwell, Jr. to freak out over social media. The dynamic seems very similar to what happened with Megyn Kelly.


TRUMP TALES OF TERROR is about ugly creatures, murderous fantasies, and apocalyptic worlds – and they’re right in America. YOU CAN BUY IT HERE.
