In many places in the South, Confederate monuments are more common than memorials for lynching victims. Good job New Orleans! Confederate symbols belong in museums right next to Nazi memorabilia and relics from Apartheid South Africa. #yourheritageishate
Macron and Le Pen are projected to win in the first round and will go the runoff election later on.

UPDATE: Macron and Le Pen are confirmed to head to the runoff election with Macron currently in the lead.
Donald Trump would have been stoned to death in Biblical times. Adultery, divorce, positions other than missionary and having a porn star wife are big no-no's. That is what Trump does and is also frequently preached by evangelicals. Yet Trump remains popular among white evangelicals, even as his approval rate drops with practically everyone else. His current approval rate among white evangelicals is 74%.

tfw your mom fucked up your future.

This is something that has always baffled me. How can Trump remain popular among evangelicals despite committing every one of the seven deadly sins? Wayne Flynt, an Alabama professor at Auburn University, provided an answer that actually explained a lot. 

Flynt explained that the actual words of Jesus are largely unimportant to evangelicals. The only two issues that evangelicals largely care about are abortion and homosexuality. Pledging to install a Supreme Court Justice that was pro-life probably helped sell him to white evangelicals. Or as Flynt put it:

Jesus says four times in four different places: do not divorce. Does divorce bother evangelicals? No, absolutely not. Does adultery bother evangelicals? No, not really, because if so they wouldn’t have voted for Donald Trump. So what bothers them? Abortion and same-sex marriage. Beyond that, there’s no longer an agenda.

It is also worth noting that a 2015 Pew study found that evangelicals are more likely to be divorced than Catholics, Jews, Muslims or atheists. The notion that evangelicals' main motivation for voting the way they do (homophobic and sexism) reminds me of another article I read on the Daily Kos. The author wrote about a rural Kentucky town and stated that the Trump voters in that town were referred to as the "three G's" (God, guns and gays) because those are the ONLY things that influence their decision at the ballot box.

This also provides an adequate explanation for why the people in the poorest Appalachian towns voted for Trump: The Culture Wars trump (no pun intended) their poverty. As long as Trump was gonna put "faggots" back in the closet and bring Jesus back into public schools, they were gonna vote for him even if it meant they got poorer. If that thought process were flipped the other way around (their living conditions given higher priority than their hatred of gays), places like Kentucky would be solid blue states.

So that explains a lot. Evangelicals (and some other Republican voting demographics) are primary motivated by the Culture Wars when voting. Economics? Higher wages? Affordable heathcare? Fuck that! Women and gays should not be as "uppity" as they are, and that's all that really matters to them.
