Evangelicals for Biden

What specific policies did Never Trump activists and Evangelicals for Biden want?

I’m trying to decide from Biden’s actual governing what policies  Biden-support groups – Never Trump writers, pious Democrat pastors, and Evangelicals for Biden, etc. – wanted. I remember these people were anxious during the election to tell everyone how concerned they were about Trump’s past sins, and his manner of speaking.

Here’s an article from The Federalist about their boy Biden:

Last week, legal accountability group Judicial Watch dropped a bombshell: a nearly 600-page report proving the U.S. government has been buying and trafficking “fresh” aborted baby body parts. These body parts, purchased by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to “humanize” mice and test biologic drugs in scientific experiments, came from babies up to 24-weeks-old gestation, just weeks from being born.

I’m pretty sure I remember one of those Never Trump people talking about how much they wanted the government to purchase sliced off parts of 24-week-old unborn babies. Maybe it was David French or Russell Moore or John Piper or Tim Keller? Or someone else… Anyway, did you know that 22-week-old unborn babies can survive outside the womb? Those were pretty developed unborn children. I can understand atheist abortion rights activists wanting policies like this. But I’m curious why Never Trump “conservatives” wanted it. Maybe they’re not conservative? And why did pious evangelicals for Biden want it? Maybe they’re neither pious nor evangelical.

Here’s another article from Daily Wire about more Biden policies:

President Joe Biden on Tuesday filed an appeal seeking to force doctors and hospitals to perform potentially harmful transgender-related procedures and surgeries even if they hold objections.

As outlined by BECKET Law’s Luke Goodrich, a court in January struck down the administration’s move to punish doctors who don’t perform transgender-related procedures for supposed “sex discrimination.” Biden on Tuesday officially appealed the ruling.

I’m pretty sure I remember one of those Never Trump people talking about how much they wanted to get their biological sex re-assigned for free by a Christian doctor. Maybe it was David French or Russell Moore or John Piper or Tim Keller? Or someone else… Anyway, did you know that Trump had opposed all these LGBT policies, and protected the conscience rights of Christian doctors? I knew that, because I was more concerned about policy than about virtue signaling my superior morals to people at church.

I noticed that Life News – a pro-life web site – is pretty upset about Biden’s policies so far.

They write:

Joe Biden is rapidly becoming the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history as he takes multiple actions to expand abortions and force taxpayers to subsidize them.

On Wednesday, the Biden administration released a rule that will force taxpayers to fund the abortion industry through the Title X family planning program.

The rule, issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will end a pro-life regulation that President Donald Trump put in place to ensure Title X grants are not used to subsidize the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

Pro-life groups like Susan B. Anthony List and National Right to Life considered Trump to be the most pro-life president ever. I even wrote about all the specific actions, policies and nominations he did to help the pro-life cause. That’s the kind of article that our pious pastors and conservative leaders should have written, if they were serious about getting results instead of virtue-signaling. When it comes to politics, you have to look at the actions taken by the candidates – what did they achieve? – not their words.

Why Christian men supported a bad candidate

So why do we have so many “conservative” Never Trump people and “pious” evangelical pastors and leaders supporting policies like these Biden policies? These people aren’t stupid. They know perfectly well what Biden said he was going to do. They shouldn’t be surprised at what he’s doing. It’s the job of organizations like the Southern Baptist ERLC to know what policies affect religious liberty. It’s their job to know what policies affect the rights of unborn children. It’s their job to know what policies affect the conscience rights of Christian medical professionals. So what happened?

Well, I know a few Never Trump men, so let me tell you what happened to them. They are married to women who don’t know very much about law and policy. Those women often have non-STEM degrees, no private sector experience, and if they work at all, they work as teachers – especially of very young children. They’re not used to speaking about policy to adults, other than other teachers of small children in the faculty lounge. Teachers talk about how people look, how they talk, how mean they are. They talk about teacher pay, being nice to illegal immigrants, and making the government provide free stuff for irresponsible people. They are terrified of standing up to bad behaviors like having babies out of wedlock or same-sex marriage. They don’t like to make moral judgments – they’re “compassionate”. And they worry a lot about how they are perceived by non-Christians. They don’t want to be seen as “mean”.

So, at least for the men I know, what happened is that these low-information wives – who are all active in their churches with essential oils and self-help books and feelings-based Bible study guides – all convinced their “conservative” evangelical husbands to support Biden’s policies, because of Trump’s “mean” appearance and words. And the strong, tough “conservative” evangelical men went along with it. They wanted a peaceful home, available sex, and not sleeping on the couch more than they wanted conservative policies.

During an online game, I asked one of these men I was playing with which policies he considered the most important, as a conservative Christian. His reply? “Teacher pay and universal healthcare”. His wife was a teacher, and I’m pretty sure he got those priorities from her. Keep in mind that universal healthcare means taxpayer-funded abortions and sex-changes. That’s how it works in countries like Canada, that have a true single-payer health care system.

We need to be careful about appointing weak men as conservative, Christian leaders. If they can’t stand up to their own wives, what good are they as leaders?

  1. Thanks for calling out the phonies and virtue signalers by name. They are worse than the hypocrites in Matthew 6 – at least the hypocrites actually did something to merit praise.

  2. I always chuckle when you mention essential oils. Jokes aside, I’m with you, Wintery, about policy trumping (no pun intended) politeness.

    1. Well, if you’re a pastor in one of these churches, and you get confronted by someone reading Rachel Hollis and Jen Hatmaker who thinks they are Christian, you have to decide how to respond. And the way these pastors and leaders responded is by affirming these women. Oh yes, Trump is so orange-skinned. He says mean things. He is such a mean man. They weren’t going to bring up policies. Either they didn’t know the policies, or they didn’t think that confronting these women with facts was worth the kickback. They’re either ignorant or they’re cowardly. Not the people we should have leading us.

  3. I know it’s easy to think of the evangelical church as seeking God and biblical and all, and I think there are people within it doing just that, but I think a significant part of the leadership is either deceived or wolves in sheep’s clothing, as The Lord warned us of. This is the same church peddling such false doctrines as the prosperity gospel, New Calvinism, the marriage and parenthood mandates and others, and then there’s that troubling protection of sexual predators.

    Note the number of new churches going up in wealthy areas as opposed to working class ones. I guess those working class people should just go to the other place?

    The Word warns us of people possessing a form of the appearance of Godliness but lacking power. Much of the present day evangelical church appears to fit that description.

    1. I’ve been thinking a lot about it, and what I’ve decided is that most of these people like Al Mohler and Russell Moore did not get into Christianity because it was the result of a search for truth, no holds barred. They weren’t looking in science books or history books. They didn’t defend Christianity to non-Christians by appealing to science or history. Or even with philosophical arguments. No.

      The real reason people like Mohler, Moore, Piper, Keller, etc. got into Christianity was TO SIGNAL THEIR SUPERIOR MORAL VIRTUE to others and to MAKE PEOPLE LIKE THEM.

      So, naturally when they have to confront their angry wives and all the angry women in their churches who are focused on how Trump looks, what Trump says, and how Trump makes them feel, they fold like a house of cards. These were stupid, uninformed men, who were concerned about feeling good and being liked. They adjust their beliefs to the people around them. That’s why they were so focused on virtue-signaling instead of actual policies. Reading about policies is hard. And these people are people-pleasers.

      1. I also think a fair number of these people got into Christianity to earn a living. The Word says not everyone who says Lord, Lord are truly His, and it sounds a lot like the passage is talking about leadership types.

        Why else to virtually all these new church plants go only to expensive areas except for the financial aspects? Why do some of these pastors come out and tell people who aren’t married with young children that their church isn’t for them except for the financial aspects? Why do they push marriage and parenthood so hard and the prosperity gospel except the financial aspects?

        1. I think that the Christian leaders’ response to the advance of atheism, feminism and socialism is not to fight against it. That would require those leaders to spend less time preening in front of their mirrors, and less time consulting with PR firms. They’d have to read books. Since they’re not willing to read, they just want to accomodate. But authentic Christianity can’t survive an alliance with atheism, feminism and socialism.

    1. Thank you for encouraging me, Bee. I would like more women to encourage men to be confrontational. For better or worse, men tend to say what they think women want to hear. So that means that men are depending on women to be informed and aggressive about pushing the policies that are consistent with Christian morals, liberty, prosperity and security.

  4. Reblogged this on Patriactionary and commented:
    Spot on.

    Especially good thoughts on why such men give into their wives, both in the post and the comments.

    All too often, evangelical men are evanjellyfish, totally henpecked.

    And their beliefs and subsequent teachings end up warped, accordingly.

    We call them Churchians, rather than Christians.

    Because it seems fairly clear they are not, when they end up supporting a party and candidate which oppose Christian morality and principles, when they do so for worldly, progressive, secularist reasons.

    1. Churchians is good, I’m going to steal that. It’s like they get their marching orders from people in church rather than the Bible, because the important relationships are all horizontal, not vertical.

      1. Indeed, and also, that their religion is more about being ‘church people’, people who are known for going to church, rather than being Christians, people who are of Christ.

        IOW, cultural Christianity rather than faithful, believing Christianity.

  5. Little disgusts me more than a man being cowed by his wife. We are the heads of our homes, a God-given duty. She is to respect that headship, a God-given duty. Her failure to respect your headship is a dereliction of her duty. Your letting her is a dereliction of yours. It’s tough in the feminism soaked society, and the feminism soaked churches don’t help at all.

    But it’s amazing how quickly a truly God fearing woman responds when you correct her on disrespect or attempting to usurp headship. A beautiful and graceful thing indeed.

  6. I loved this article! Many “Christian” guys I know are willing to let their wives take control – I want a man who’s going to stand up for what is right and Biblical, and the Bible calls the men to be the head of the household – not the women. People have also stopped learning our history (which is the best way to avoid repeating mistakes), and taking the time to learn the policies of the candidates and how they align with a Biblical government. Thank you for this!
