Donald’s Jesus Trump   3 comments

Paul Kengor over at the American Thinker as apparently been receiving some of the same posts I have on my personal social media. He almost exactly echoes my thoughts on the subject, but he wrote it better than I would have.

I especially liked the part – halfway down the article – where he quotes a “pro-life evangelical” who says voting for Donald Trump is a sign that the religious are becoming faith-filled and trusting Jesus for the answers in politics.

You just can’t make this stuff up.


Donald ‘Jesus’ Trump

It has been hard enough for me, as a Reagan scholar, to forebear claims by Trump supporters of alleged commonalities between Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. Some lost soul, in a fit of madness, composed a list of 15 uncanny “similarities” between the two. The list has gone viral and has been sent to me too many times. I’ve resisted responding to it, and — pray God — I will not need to. But speaking of God, other analogies are being made by Trump supporters that wrench my stomach so hard that I need to vent as a form of therapy. It started about six weeks ago when a family friend posted something on Facebook. It was an Old Testament verse, a prophetic one, invoked in the name of and alongside a photo of Donald Trump. I initially thought it was a joke. I will not repeat it here. It’s plainly blasphemous.

    • My pastor has received so many emails giving the “Biblical reasons” for voting for Trump that he made an endorsement on Sunday from the pulpit. He started the sermon saying he was going to make a political endorsement and then he preached for a while (on Hosea). Since so many high-profile Baptists have endorsed Trump lately, I was preparing to walk out of a church I enjoy attending if Gary did it too. I couldn’t believe he would actually endorse Trump … or any candidate … from the pulpit. I was especially mortified because the pews were packed — we had many more visitors this last Sunday than we did on Easter. This was going to be so embarrassing and I was going to make a statement by walking out. Good thing my husband and son were not with me.

      Gary’s endorsement – “I am endorsing Jesus as Savior of the World and Lord of my life because that’s the only endorsement worthy of being spoken from God’s pulpit. Any other endorsement is blasphemy.”

      The congregation was on its feet in an instant and there were quite a few surprised looking visitors in the crowd. I’m dying to see how many return this Sunday.
