Today pro-Trump evangelicals and their friends gathered in Washington D.C for a “Jericho March” to “stop the steal” of the 2020 election. Eric Metaxas, the creator and star of the recent Joe Biden parody video in which he transposed a political message over the lyrics to a Christian song performed by acapella group Pentatonix, was the master of ceremonies for a non-stop parade of bombastic, reality-denying speakers. I did not get to watch the entire event, but I live-tweeted through most of it.
The rally got off to a “good “start when Metaxas asked if anyone in the audience had a bazooka so they could shoot down a media helicopter flying over the event.
The day ended with Metaxas blowing a red, white, and blue shofar and the “walls came tumbling down.”
Mike Flynn, the former Trump national security adviser who told special counsel Robert Mueller that he “willfully and knowingly” made “false, fictitious and fraudulent” statements to the FBI about conversation with Russia’s ambassador, was one of the day’s featured speakers:

The state of evangelical politics:
Read the attached post about Kullberg. She once thought I was the son of New Testament scholar Gordon Fee.
He was convicted of witness tampering and lying to investigators, but then he converted to evangelical Trumpism:
Some speakers mentioned Bible passages:
It was only a matter of time:
The last time we heard from this guy he had COVID-19:
He has a Ph.D in military history:

The day ended with another prophetic word:
But not before Metaxas blew a red, white, and blue shofar. And the “walls came tumbling down.”
