MTG: “Satan’s controlling the church”
Posted by: Ombligo

Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Green may have really stepped in it with her latest charge.

This time she has managed to attack the entire Catholic Church saying that “Satan’s controlling the church” and that its US Bishops have “taken enormous sums of money from the federal government, federal taxpayers to assist in illegal immigration, some refugee resettlement also.”

Catholic League President Bill Donahue was quick to respond. “Satan is controlling the Catholic Church? She needs to apologize to Catholics immediately. She is a disgrace,” Donohue said. The league seldom speaks against conservatives.

And there it is. Peace with Catholics among the Christian Right is only out of temporary expedience. No Pope, or Catholic President (Biden) is going to tell a Baptist what to do.

It's not the baptists I worry about, it's the evangelicals.

This is why separation of church and state is such an important principle.

Some people and organizations always seem stupidly slow to realize that when you jump on the crazy wagon, it’s only a matter of time before it will come for them, too.

Baptists are evangelicals.

Baptists are evangelicals.

So what does that make Pentecostals, are they also evangelical?

Take a look at this.
It's just too vague to toss around terms like Evangelical and Baptist and Pentecostal. There's different groups that assign different meanings to the same terms, and people who describe groups with terms that may or may not be accurate. It's a big alphabet soup.
Most people these days use Evangelical to mean "white, bigoted, fundamentalist" but that isn't really the traditional meaning.
