MERE ORTHODOXY — 2017 was the year of the deep state, a year when the inner workings of the American system were exposed to the world and we realized that what we thought was a government of the people, by the people, and for the people is in fact no such thing. Instead of being headed by elected politicians who embody the general will, as James Madison intended, much of the American political system is instead controlled by shadowy elites and their hired officials who engineer the American system with minimal accountability to voters.
Sadly, we must today build on the work of our colleagues in examining the inner workings of evangelicalism. We take no pleasure in this task, but discernment is at the heart of what we are called to do as followers of Christ, and discernment involves, above all, skill in rapid googling, and a manly willingness to tell hard truths.

It was only a few years after Carter’s series debuted that the blaspheming papist Stephen Colbert launched his “Better Know a District” series on his Comedy Central show The Colbert Report. Can there be any doubt that he took the name from his secret friend Joe Carter? […]
