'Trump Is Doing God's Work' and other Right Wing Blasphemies


                                          Good Day World!

"Women aren't supposed to make coffee"...the Bible says "He-Brews" - Anonymous


While enjoying my morning brew this beautiful Sunday morning, I recalled something I read last week about a right-wing Evangelical pastor's claim that God sent Trump to save America.

Trump's religious base, white evangelic men, seem completely untroubled by the most profane president in modern history. These 'Men of God" have an attitude toward women that's disturbing and defiantly not biblical.

According to one Evangelic thinker, Lance Wallnau, "Trump is a "modern day King Cyrus" an ancient king chosen by God to "navigate in chaos."

Okay. I'll go along with the chaos part. Trump has turned the White House and our government into one hot seething bed of chaos with his profanity and irreverence.

Oh yeah!...and his daily lies. Seems to me that one of the 10 Commandants instructs good Christians not to lie.

The King Cyrus comparison has become more explicit in the wake of Trump's presidency. 

For example; an Israeli organization, the Mikdash Educational Center, minted a commemorative "Temple Coin" depicting Trump and King Cyrus side by side, in honor of Trump's decision to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

For believers who subscribe to this account, Cyrus is a perfect historical antecedent to explain Trump's presidency. 

He was a nonbeliever who nevertheless served as a vessel for divine interest.

In backing our porn star president, evangelicals have chosen to turn their back on nearly every bad behavior listed in the Bible, to back someone willing to overturn laws - like Roe vs Wade - effectively taking away a woman choice over her own body.

Right-wing religious zealots do not represent Christianity honestly. For the sake of politics they are willing to worship at Trump's altar of greed and power.

According to the Bible, God sent Jesus down to teach us what's right and wrong. 

I can assure you God wouldn't have sent Trump on any kind of mission representing holiness. Let alone salvation.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
