This is kind of hilarious in a tragic way since he seems to have a lot of influence. Any amount of research into the history of Christianity over the last 2000 years makes it obvious this 'truth' has been a variety of beliefs, many contradicting each other, but all citing Divine authority, leading up to modern American Christianity that has little to do with anything that would have been considered as such even 100 years ago and which in many cases seems only vaguely connected to the Bible itself.

I wonder if this is related to justifying folks like Orban and even Putin as the leaders of Christian nations. Was just reading about J D Vance's Senate campaign and how he's claiming Christianity as our common culture...how we don't have to be searching for common ground coz here it is.
