Evangelicals prostitute themselves to a pimp running for Nevada state assembly

Regular readers and listeners of the Strident Conservative are no doubt familiar with my views when it comes to the so-called leaders of the evangelical community and their goose-stepping loyalty to Donald Trump. Spreading the same “cheap grace” theology that gave rise to Hitler and Nazi Germany, this Fellowship of Pharisees peddle moral relativism and lukewarm Christianity as they gleefully accept the crumbs falling from Trump’s table under the delusion that they have a seat in his dining hall.

In an article I wrote back in March about how “God’s man” in the White House was fundamentally transforming the GOP and America into his own hedonistic image, I issued a warning about how this compromising attitude by evangelicals would give rise to an army of “mini-Trumps” across America who would not only be completely sold-out to Trump, but who would be equally lacking in moral character.

In that piece, I introduced you to Dennis Hof, a self-proclaimed pimp who owns a strip club and five legal houses of prostitution, who had just announced his campaign for a state assembly seat because he was just like Trump.

“We’re both famous and infamous. We’re both high-profile. We’re both successful businessmen. We both have reality television shows. We both have written books. We’re both rich and can’t be bought. There’s a lot of similarities.”

Hof left out other things they have in common–multiple divorces, serial adultery, and sex with porn stars–but you get the idea.

I joked at the time how, since Hof was exactly like Trump, evangelicals would eventually support the man who campaigned as the “Trump of Pahrump,” the Nevada town where Hof’s notorious Love Ranch Cathouse is located. Unfortunately, as so often happens when discussing Trump and evangelicals, Hof’s primary victory proved that it wasn’t a joke after all.

As we learn in a recent Reuters article, Hof is sitting pretty and is likely to win the seat in the Nevada legislature thanks to the support of evangelicals willing to set aside morality and religion–just as they did for Trump. Ironically, Hof recognized evangelical hypocrisy as the reason for his success while simultaneously praising Trump for his “honesty.”

People will set aside for a moment their moral beliefs, their religious beliefs, to get somebody honest in office. Trump is the trailblazer, he is the Christopher Columbus of honest politics.”

And the evangelicals shouted in unison, “Amen!”

Evangelical pastor Victor Fuentes, in a calling evil good and good evil sort of way, boldly declared his support for the Nevada pimp.

“People want to know how an evangelical can support a self-proclaimed pimp. We have politicians, they might speak good words, not sleep with prostitutes, be a good neighbor. But their decisions, they have evil in their heart. Dennis Hof is not like that.”

Robert Thomas, a retired prosecutor and evangelical who voted for Hof in the primary and will support his election in November, essentially agreed with Hof about evangelicals laying aside their morals to embrace Trump’s brand of morality. Even though Hof’s prostitution business bothered him “a lot,” Thomas promised to support the self-proclaimed pimp because he “seems to be a man of his word and he does what he says.”

Trump’s fundamental transformation of America is only a symptom; evangelical transformation of America is the real disease; and the prognosis for America’s future is terminal.
