What about the black churches? We all know they all hate Trump, even though he has done more for blacks in this country then Obama ever did.

BorintheSprings I love you. Bullseye.

Colin777 ... check out churches that are Methodist, Presbyterian USA, United Church of Christ, Episcopalian, or Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) denominations. Can’t guarantee all individual churches in these denominations will suit your needs, but all are mainline denominations with a theology more inline with what you are seeking. If you’re willing to explore a bit, also check out the Unitarian Universalist denomination.

Best of luck.

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." Matthew 19:24
LOL - Hillary & Bill Clinton are also rich beyond their wildest dreams - and at least Trump appears to not support killing babies.

Leave politics out of religion.

Just be the best person you can be.

Beergeek40, Leaving politics out of religion is a great idea - would you mind writing a letter to James Dobson and Franklin Graham with your suggestion? Since "evangelicals" and the KKK are largely responsible for putting this man in office and are extremely vocal, THEY have dissolved the boundary designed separate church and state. The good thing about this is for the first time, we are seeing what they truly stand for - and I do not want to be associated with them. I believe their stand is in ignorance and hate, not truth and love. They cherry-pick the verses of the Bible they believe in and are ignoring the verses about welcoming the foreigner, as you do unto the least of these you do it unto me, and the one you quoted in your statement where Jesus states how HARD it is for a rich man to get into heaven because he doesn't want to let go of his wealth and doesn't want to share it - let that sink in. I am so sick of people playing their "but Hillary/but Obama" card to deflect truth about Trump. He tore babies out of the arms of their parents, traumatized them, locked them in cages, and most will never see their families again. Last week he attempted to take away children's health care (CHIP program), welfare, and Medicaid. If you are anti-abortion, why wouldn't you want to help people who choose to have their babies? He was seven stupid enough state on video a few years ago that he couldn't stand to have sex with any of his wives after seeing them pregnant, and that's when he cheated on each of them. This president is not pro-life or pro-family. He is not for the elderly or the disabled. He is pro-wealthy, pro-corporate, and pro-perverse. He stated on video years ago that he would call himself a Christian to get your vote - now he is telling you to not believe anything you hear or read about him in the news and is banning reporters who disagree with him - you've been Stepfordized- wake up!!!

Thank you for taking the time to answer, Mountainearth! This is a great list - J.Sessions was disciplined by the Methodist church, so maybe I will start there. I think you have answered my question well, so I will close out of this discussion. Seeing the trolls makes it very difficult to ever want to step foot in a church again and the evangelicals have blown their "witness" - why would ANYONE ever want to visit a church after seeing this hate spew?!! If I wasn't strong in my faith and aware of how far off they are from God's heart, as stated in the Bible, I would be done!!!! In the Bible it talks about how the world will think they are doing a good thing by putting Christians to death, in the last days - for the first time, I can see how that can happen. I don't believe these people are true Christians, because Trump's missions go against so many scriptures, however, wearing the title of "evangelical" is very damaging to the whole church.

Goodness people.

I think the OP would be very happy indeed finding a church where your political positions were not front and center and it was all about worship, as it really should be.

This is frankly one of the reasons I am not into religion. I love faith and philosophy, and will read the Bible alongside many other works from many paths. I'm closer to certain eastern teachings these days, because I'm looking for the core ideas without the institutional baggage and clutter and attachment to things that should have nothing to do with faith.

OP, I want to just sincerely express that I hope you find a good church. Wishing you love, light, and harmonious connection in a community that meets your needs. If this thread remains open, would you kindly come back and let us know, if you do find a good fit? If you needed to ask the question, other people may also be seeking the answer.

Christianity has become a morass of competing political cults, apparently.
