Mr. Hannity cannot reinvent Christianity on his terms. To be considered a Christian he has to at least support the five solas ‚ĚóūüĎć
Mongerism wrote: The ‚Äúfive solas‚ÄĚ is a term used to designate five great foundational rallying cries of the Protestant reformers. They are as follows: ‚ÄúSola Scriptura‚ÄĚ (Scripture Alone); ‚ÄúSola Gratia‚ÄĚ (Grace Alone); ‚ÄúSola Fide‚ÄĚ (Faith Alone); ‚ÄúSolus Christus‚ÄĚ (Christ Alone); and ‚ÄúSoli Deo Gloria‚ÄĚ (To God Alone Be Glory)
These ‚Äúfive solas‚ÄĚ were developed in response to specific perversions of the truth that were taught by the corrupt Roman Catholic Church....
Today, the Catholic Church teaches the same essential perversions of truth; and much of Protestantism has seen a regress to many of the same corruptions, in many circles and denominations. It is a pressing need for Christians everywhere to reaffirm and champion anew the ‚Äúfive solas‚ÄĚ which underlay and gave impetus to the Protestant Reformation.

Not really, Mike, an argument ad hominem doesn't effect the reasoning of his article. Besides trumpian should like Boris Johnson. He has a few things in common with Donald Trump. None of them particularly good I might add.
Chris GP, made some excellent comments and living in England gives his arguments some weight. Corbyn is worse than Johnson because of his anti-semitism.

I didn't have any trouble finding the article. I give you the above tinyurl for it but it certainly is long! I was using a netbook type of device to read it and the battery went from 30% to 13% so I had to recharge the thing before finishing up.
Andrew Sullivan wrote: Consider, by contrast, Germany, where the center right is reeling and the extreme-right AfD has 91 seats in the Bundestag. Or, for that matter, France, where the mainstream right has collapsed and Marine Le‚ÄĮPen won 34 percent in the last presidential election. Compare it with the U.S., where the GOP has been overthrown by a far-right insurgency and turned into a disturbingly fascistic personality cult. Or Hungary and Poland, where reactionaries control the entire system. The Tories under Boris, helped in part by the winner-takes-all electoral system, have kept the far right at bay, now favor tax cuts for the poor, have a strong program for climate change, and have proposed an Australian-style immigration policy to defuse native panic. They are not socially conservative in the American sense. And all of this has been made possible by Boris Johnson‚Äôs shameless ability to shift and reinvent his politics, betray his allies, lie to the public, and advance his own career....

Measles cases are rising worldwide, even in wealthy nations such as Germany and the United States, as parents shun immunisation for philosophical or religious reasons, or fears, debunked by doctors, that such vaccines could cause autism.
The World Health Organisation said this week that measles infected almost 10 million people last year, killing 140,000 ‚ÄĒ mostly children.
The picture for 2019 is even worse, it said, with provisional data up to November showing a three-fold increase in case numbers compared with the same period in 2018.
