What happens when you mix the childhood trauma of sexual abuse, a distant father with major issues of his own, evangelical dogma, “spiritual bypassing,” and life in a red-state, evangelical Christian Trump-supporting part of the Bible belt?

Let “Seamus” tell his story of a man who is in the process of questioning all these things and more.

Don’t miss Part 2 of my conversation with “Seamus Clarke” (a pseudonym), which continues our exploration of the deconstruction of his Christian faith.

Adding all those issues up, and then layering a veneer of Christian respectability and platitudes that are supposed to deal with trauma…then what you end up with is a particularly American brand of evangelical Christianity that desperately needs to be deconstructed.
