This is an excerpt from the chapter titled "Come Back to Your First Love"
I have a genuine concern for the safety of people in Arizona and other states where the president is still stoking resentment and anger based on false, wide-scale tampering with the election. In this final chapter, I’m calling on all Republican and evangelical leaders to follow the example of Governor Ducey and other elected Republicans to follow the law and call the election over. It’s time to stop supporting the president’s attempts to intervene at the electoral college level to throw out the certified, even hand-counted election results.
It’s time for those continuing to prophesy or insinuate that God is going to produce another election result to stop. Just stop. Stop before it leads to violence. No, you may not be the one to initiate actual violence, but your continued endorsement of false, massive election fraud might trigger violence from groups like the “Wolverine Watchmen” who tried to kidnap Michigan’s governor. (Kapetaneas, Giardino, Fasano, Muldofsky, & Yang, 2020)
Not only is it past time to end false claims about the election, but it’s also time for the Republican Party to come back to standards of decency and integrity. I am a huge George Bush fan. I shudder to think that President Bush, his father, and Senator John McCain can be said to have something in common with the president. Unfortunately, they do—“Republican nominee for president.”
I was taught that Republican leaders and certainly Christian leaders represented the moral high ground. But they winked at the president’s overtures to the Proud Boys, actions with Ukraine, attacks on Senator McCain (even after his death), communist state-style firings of the Attorney General, FBI Director, three National Security Advisors, the Secretary of Defense, the Director of Homeland Security, and key members of the State Department including the whistle-blower.
