“I do think there are very close parallels with Germany 1931, 1932, and Hitler doing the same thing, and Christians in Germany were exhausted.”

Poor guy has been sliding into obscurity.   But he knows the easiest way to get back into the limelight is to pander to the left with any level of anti-trump nonsense.   They lap it up.  Guess it doesn't bother him that his 15 minutes of fame are granted by a group that is also sliding into obscurity.

That's funny -- I don't see "Rob Schenck" among the listed "Political Leaders and Institutions" in the Wikipedia article about the Religious Right. I wonder how anyone could credibly claim him as the "Minister who built the religious right." 

From Wikipedia: 

Political leaders and institutions

"Led by Robert Grant advocacy group Christian Voice, Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority, Ed McAteer's Religious Roundtable Council, James Dobson's Focus on the Family, Paul Weyrich's Free Congress Foundation and The Heritage Foundation,[31] and Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network, the new Religious Right combined conservative politics with evangelical and fundamentalist teachings."
