We’ve posted before about “Patriot Churches,” an attempt by pastors who basically worship Donald Trump to blend God and government under the guise of Christianity.
It’s one thing to read about those preachers like Ken Peters and Joshua Feuerstein — who have repeatedly denied the seriousness of the pandemic while pretending that masks and vaccines are enemies of faith. It’s another to watch them win over gullible people by feeding them these lies.
The folks at Insider followed those pastors around, including their fateful trip to the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
One disturbing detail I hadn’t heard before: Peters says he gets roughly $20,000 per month from the congregation and outside donors. Christian Nationalism is a lucrative scheme. And as the last couple of minutes of that video show, it’s also a potentially dangerous one.
