Some conservative Christians have gone “the full Monty,” exposing themselves as they leave Jesus in the rearview mirror. Following Donald Trump, they repudiate Jesus as much as Peter, who when identified as a disciple of Jesus, loudly proclaimed, “I do not know that man.” Suppose Trump-following Christians hear the cock crow?

Jonathan Lange, a Lutheran Pastor speaking for the Wyoming Pastor’s Network (WPN) denied the transformational power of Christ in his Aug. 2 op-ed, “Executions teach the value of life.” Lange attempted to give religious creds to Trump’s decision to resume executions while avoiding any reference to Jesus’ teachings.
