…view, more critical question.) Both Lofton and Titus are admirers of R.J. Rushdoony, the intellectual godfather of Christian Reconstructionism. Although Titus has denied the label Christian Reconstructionist, he nonetheless doesn’t deny its influence on him, telling me last year that Rushdoony’s seminal Institutes of Biblical Law has shaped his jurisprudential thinking.

…veling for votes from their television studios to their megachurches, the fruits of their insidious demands for their congregants’ money with a promise that God will make them rich in return. Trump, like the televangelists, is a publicity hog with an empathy problem: I’m rich, and you could be too if you weren’t such a loser (or, in the case of the televangelists, a non-believer).

…the outside, the Oculus as been likened to “a great white bird.” But the structure, as I see it, is shaped like two lids of an eye. White beams, which also form the ceiling of the interior, look to be bending outward like plumped white lashes, revealing the glass-domed roof of the Oculus space like a giant eyeball—a single oculus, like the Eye of Sauron in Lord of the Rings. Getting inside can be an epic quest, if you don’t have directions, as the…
