    'Elite' evangelicals

    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nation’s political system.

    It's an amusing Providential coincidence that the guy's name -- "Galli" -- relates to the barnyard bird family. Undoubtedly this turkey and his bird-brain friends sneer down their beaks at smelly WalMart shoppers, and regard us as irredeemably deplorable. Those pant-loads need to get out more.

    FTR, I'm a college graduate (barely, I admit). My circle of friends includes mostly Evangelicals. Several are college graduates, but most are not. Most are Republicans and Trump supporters (but most of us did NOT support him in the primaries). My *family* is mostly non-Evangelical, mostly college educated, mostly moderate Democrat, and mostly anti-Trump. I live in western "Pennsyltucky." Mr. Galli would find many people like me and my friends in Red State America, and we would perceive *him* as the "alien."

    I wonder what Galli's doctrines about Jesus are. I wonder what his concept of the gospel is. His claim to being an elite evangelical does raise a red flag. The social justice doctrines seem to be more of a popular non-Christian movement rather a concept of unity raised through Christ -- sort of a Democratic atheist moral doctrine.

    Its a very poor term to use. But he's clearly not saying he's "The best Christian", he's clearly saying "I have a long education and I'm wealthy" as well as being evangelical.

    There is nothing inconsistent in the slightest between being a Christian, and supporting welfare and "social justice". The fact that atheists are doing that work is an accident of history, in that the religious right was formed in the US. In other countries the patterns are different.

    I've read material by Galli in the past though I would not say that I follow him closely by any means. My general impression was that he is a fairly conservative Christian. Before now the incident that popped up most on my radar was when he strongly pushed back against Rob Bell's universalism. The personal attacks like "bird brained" in his thread are unbecoming of descriptions against fellow Christians with whom we disagree though I know saying so will go nowhere here.

    You seem like a pretty decent guy, KG. Just stop it.

    I might have missed something Cow Poke. I didn't follow the other thread. But I don't see what's wrong with Kingsgambit's statement.

    I was kidding him --- he's a decent guy, and so often that just doesn't "fit" in Tweb's... um..... I was kidding.
