To see his religious zeal in the pursuit of profound injustice is to remember that Christian power does not always result in Christian ethics, and that Christian moral corruption was and is a sad hallmark of the age of Trump. Yes, Thomas repeated and referenced some of the wildest election conspiracy theories of the far right, but the most dangerous aspects of the effort to overturn the election was the extent to which it was an explicitly religious cause.

Prominent religious leaders and leading Christian lawyers threw themselves into the effort to throw out the election results entirely.
