Donald Trump, of course, was trying to curry favor with white evangelicals when he recently criticized the so-called war on Christmas. Those evangelicals have given Christianity a bad name, but the evangelicals who write for Sojourners are quite different. Benjamin Perry in Sojourners eloquently shows just how hypocritical it is for Trump to claim any affiliation with genuine Christianity. He argues that Trump "doesn’t seem to get what Jesus is all about. And, after all, why should he? A man pathologically dedicated to 'winning' cannot understand why God would choose to enter the world as a 'loser.' Someone who conflates wealth with moral authority is unlikely to grasp why God is born into an impoverished body. When one adorns every surface of one’s home in gold, it’s hard to grasp the meaning of the manger. .... President Trump’s Christmas is a spiteful imitation. It revels in commercial excess and gaudy lights, while beneath its shiny façade lurks an ideology of blight and corruption. His Christmas is the very inverse message from the prophet who was anointed to proclaim good news to the poor." See his argument here.
