    The Bible teaches you are not saved by what you do, be it showing up in church or helping the poor, but rather things like helping the poor should be evidence of the "Christ in you". But you are right, there are many 'Sunday Christians", or "cultural Christians" in US.

    Some promote a political/ideological agenda under the guise of religiosity,

    Not some, but MANY. They are not allowed to openly promote political parties by name, so they sneak it in by constantly bringing up political wedge issues like homosexuality and abortion aka the Biblical "abominations", but rarely talk about politically neutral sins like anger, selfishness, adultery, lying, cheating in taxes (lying / stealing), whipping up strife among people etc.

    You are confused.

    The Seven Corporal Works of Mercy are strictly a Catholic concept, yet you are trying to apply this to Evangelicals which are clearly a part of Protestant denominations.​

    Yes it does. The only question to which the answer is more government is, "How do I screw things up completely"

    I could care less about Democrats save to the extent that the only solutions they seem to come up with is more government control of peoples day to day lives.

    Which was the point about the Persian Rescuing the Jews... And works of the flesh are the what democrats have championed for the last fifty years. The closest DC has ever been to purity was back in the eighties when a news report indicated that 14% of DC sex workers had AIDS. And DC is a Democrat company town.

    I can't imagine what the Founding Fathers would have thought of such a tawdry perversion of their quest to form a democratic republic free of the sectarian strife that had plagued Europe, let alone the cloying, woefully-misplaced idolatry,

    The rapturous coterie appears to be in the thralls of a coordinated, communal hemorrhoidal flare-up.​

    What makes America repugnant is its turn away from competency, the sorry state of its academic institutions, its refusal to enforce its borders, its refusal to balance budgets, its corrupt use of state power to pursue its political opponents, its use of taxpayer resources to pay off political parasites and its endless wars that serve no interest. It is not an accident that Americans have reached all time lows in trust of their government. It is not an accident that America faces the largest military recruitment crisis in its existence. The number of Americans willing to fight and die for their country shrinks every year even as its population continues to grow. It is not an accident that China has now surpassed America in hypersonic missile, battery, solar and ultra high speed wifi network technologies. Competency trumps diversity every day in the week. Diversity is our greatest weakness. It is just another word for disunity. Disunity always precedes demise..... there are no exceptions. Divide and conquer.

    I think they would have a hard time with men in dresses being the standard bearer for the American military. I know I do.

    Tell me, do you think its a good idea for an employer to hire people who hate the company and want to see it destroyed?

    You seem to have quite a bit to whine about.

    Our institutions of higher learning attract the most promising internationally.

    Additional funding is continually being allocated to border enforcement.

    The United States has maintained a national debt ever since 1835.

    Corrupt politicians like Trump and Santos most be prosecuted. The sworn testimony of dozens of Republican witnesses against the Cry Baby Loser speak for themselves.

    Americans have not committed troops to any wars since the disastrous incursions into Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The US economy grew at a robust 4.9% rate in the third quarter
    China's economic woes keep getting worse.

    Men in dresses are not the standard bearers for the American military

    If you need to bitch about America, don't expect the nation to revert to exclusive rule by White geezers, despite the likely 2024 presidential nominees.

    A government is not a company. A company is limited in what it can do to the revenue it generates. It has to sell product of some sort to generate revenue. Governments in the days of fiat currency can always print more money and the products they sell are borderline extortion. And they make nothing.

    Are evangelical Republicans Christians?

    The word Repulican need not apply as Evangelicals are basically a spinoff of the Protestants. So, considering both are one in the same, their congregation are of all political flavors..

    Trying to like one party to any deity is sort of ridiculous..

    I mean but if you are a Christian you don't have to wait until you die to face judgment, you can be judged by your fellow man everyday.

    This thread is a great example

    If you don't want to recognize White evangelical Republicans, that is understandable. Nevertheless, they're out there.
