Have you ever Krazy-glued your thumb and forefinger together accidentally? That tiny dot of glue can transform your hand into useless fingers. In an instant, it can erase the evolution of an opposable thumb, the physical tool that helped mankind to build and create.

So very many of the Christian Right have, in a sense, Deplorable-Crazy-Glued themselves to Donald Trump with the glue rendering both entities ridiculously worthless: in their steadfast support of Trump (coming out of the hatred for Hillary) the alt-right "Deplorables" of Christianity have hypocritically gone against some of Christianity's own basic principals. And Trump now faces his biggest image problem to date: there is no mistaking the fact that half of his supporters fall into the "deplorables" category. The data brought out by Think Progress is proof.

And some pretty bad religious "Deplorables".

For example, in the news these last weeks are some glaring hypocrisies:

KENTUCKY: Father On TLC's "Quiverfull" Christian Reality Show The Willis Family Arrested For Child Rape

The patriarch of a family featured on the TLC reality television show "The Willis Family" was arrested Friday and charged with rape of a child stemming from an alleged sexual encounter around 12 years ago, authorities said. Toby Nathaniel Willis, 46, was arrested in Greenville, Kentucky, by agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the bureau said in a statement. The TBI said Willis traveled to Kentucky "in an effort to avoid law enforcement."

ALABAMA: Pastor Tells High School Football Crowd They Should Stand For The National Anthem Or Be Shot

"If you don't want to stand for the national anthem, you can line up over there by the fence and let our military personnel take a few shots at you since they're taking shots for you," the announcer said at the game versus Houston County High School, according to Facebook poster Denise Crowley-Whitfield.

Pastor Rapes Teen, Church Asks Victim To Apologize To Pastor's Wife

After the youth pastor was arrested for repeatedly raping the unnamed teen girl, officials at the Columbia Road Baptist Church blamed and shamed the young victim, and forbid the family of the unnamed teenager from attending services until she apologize to the wife of youth pastor Brian Mitchell.

Soldier Drowns After Baptism Goes Bad At Fort Campbell

Unauthorized baptism results in death at Fort Campbell.
Staff Sergeant Marcus Rogers is under investigation after performing an unauthorized baptism on a government installation that apparently resulted in the death of Army Specialist Dhaifal Ali.

How much you wanna to bet that all these "good Christian" perpetrators are planning to vote for Trump?

But How Many Christian Right Are TRUE "Deplorables?"

If last week's Values Voters Summit - with Trump as the featured speaker - was any indication as to how many uber-Christians are also alt-right and bigoted "Deplorables" there are a lot out there. In their own communities they may be slightly closeted, but in a large group, they are out there rooting for one thing: Dominionism.
