THE CURSE OF CONSERVATISM is the title of this book by someone named Coleman Luck.
Not quite to the point of his hearing Satan's hiss from the Tea Party, yet his diss-cuss-ion
of the syncretism of politics and religion even included, at least once, the term "blasphemy".
A significance of his context could have been written by an atheist ultra-liberal!! Only his
fundamentalist/literalist religiousness and purist-conservatism keeps him from such sin.
Mr. Luck, traces his familial lineage far back through early American prominence (and slave-
owning). Aside from one great-great-great- (or more) grandmother who was hanged by the
Puritans for teaching the Bible, it appears that his forebears were fine, upstanding, successful,
no doubt very conservative folk.
And Mr. Luck, himself is no left-wing, "lib-tard", hand out for hand-out type. Successful he
is, by contemporary American mammon standards. But beyond that, he's an evangelical
Christian!! Very much so, to the point of accepting the reality of Satan, and the inevitability
and perhaps proximity of the Second Coming.
The fascinating concatenation of such doctrinal disjoint from the main body of evangelical
espousal is based on the error, even sin, of the recent religious right. And that has been to
co-opt big business, big capitalization, big capitalist-names. The worst case thereof that he cites
(so far -- I haven't finished it) in the book was that "the largest 'evangelical Christian' university
in the world -- Liberty University of Lynchburg, VA -- invited Donald Trump, a false prophet
of egomania, wealth, and narcissism if ever there was one, to address their fall convocation."
(p. 49% -- I'm reading it on Kindle).
I highly recommend the book to everyone: liberal, conservative, religious, secular, devout,
debauched even . . . for there's something in Mr. Luck's errantly erudite evangelism's
evaluation of the devaluation of and by political conservatism . . . .there's something to
both intrigue, enlighten, and thoroughly annoy. . . . . . . . everyone.
THE CURSE OF CONSERVATISM BY Coleman Luck. Get it.
(I hope this isn't considered "spamming". Another website banned me forever because I
made mention of my own published books in a couple posts. I'm not touting, have nothing
to gain, don't know Mr. Luck, and though I completely agree with him, otherwise and in
other ways I just as completely disagree with him!! I dare not mention my own book
as juxtaposition to his. "Literary self-promotion leadeth unto spam/ban??)
