Yes, we can actually know what’s in a man’s heart by studying the way they live their actual life.
There is nothing surprising about Jerry Falwell Jr., president of the conservative “Christian” mega-college, Liberty University, endorsing Donald Trump. I have always believed that at the heart of southern white conservative Christianity isn’t Jesus, but whiteness, not religion, but racism and the Republican Party.
Donald Trump is the most prominent and popular bigot in modern American history. White supremacist hate groups openly profess their love for him and are actively campaigning for him.
In the past year, Donald Trump openly stated that the United States should ban all Muslims from entering the country, blamed African-Americans for the overwhelming majority of white murder victims, has been overtly racist toward Mexican immigrants, has been consistently sexist and crass toward women — and has offered absolutely no apologies for any of it. These aren’t just political statements, but a terrible mix of lies and practices that fly in the face of Christianity.
Beyond the fact that his words stand in stark contrast to the compassionate Christ of the Bible, Trump has all but broadcast to the world that he knows absolutely nothing about Christianity. Maybe it has something to do with Jesus saying it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven, but whatever the case, Trump has done a terrible job at even pretending to be Christian.
When asked if he has ever asked God for forgiveness or repented of his sins, a key tenet of Christianity, Trump openly said no, and could not really recall a time, ever, that he needed to ask God for forgiveness. Had President Obama uttered such a phrase, white people would’ve used it as indisputable proof that he was an undercover Muslim or the anti-Christ.
When asked to name his favorite Bible verse, he couldn’t really name one at all.
When speaking at Liberty University, he so badly flubbed the name of one of the most popular New Testament epistles that it became a trending topic. He’s not a young man, mind you, he’s a senior citizen. He’s 69 years old. He doesn’t know these things because they aren’t a real part of his life.
Most conservative Christians claim to despise divorce, but Trump has been married three times.
His Christianity is so fake, so phony, that if a fictional conservative character was created to fake it the way he has, it would seem so outrageous, so preposterous, that it would seem like a complete impossibility.
But, here we are anyway, with the president of the largest Christian university in the country letting the world know Trump’s his man.
Is it his family values? Is it his compassionate tone? Is it his command of scripture? I call foul. Donald Trump is not beloved by conservative Christians like Jerry Falwell Jr. in spite of his bigotry, but because of it. When men tell you who they really are, believe them.
Here’s what social networks say about this:
Andrew Midgett luckily the “Christian Right” is a bunch of hypocrites who don’t care about a disgusting philandering admitted sexual predator who’s never opened a Bible, as long as he’s a white man who will save them from minorities, foreigners, and gays
Amanda Martin That’s pretty American if you ask me… “Christian” holidays are pagan traditions. Most of you are in church today, haven’t been since Christmas the last pagan holiday. It’s all fake. But spin it how you want.
Lawrence Michael Even on Easter Sunday, the faux journalist spews bile as if he is perfect and without flaws. Man, give it a rest and maybe try to have a day of peace, instead of obsessing over the President.
LeiAziah James LMFAO! I love the responses…. Every TRUMPAZEE responds by racists attacks on Sean King, but NOT A SINGLE person argued the fact that the ARTICLE is very much an accurate assessment of RUSSIAN AGENT ORANGE!!!!
Daniel Burke Wedin His faith’s a disposable political prop. If he needed atheists to gain re-election he’d suddenly lo-o-o-ove the old atheists. They’re so smart! he’d say. Show me god! ya know? Where is he? What second coming? I gotta line for that, ha-ha. Most politically expedient operator in history. Everything seems to veer to the rhetorical extreme, until he has to actually make a decision. Then he’s Jeb Bush. Or Hillary Clinton. There’s apparently no core here, no guiding set of principles, no ethical courage and no allegiance to consistency.
Denise Brooks I Think holidays are nice just to break the monotony of everyday craziness . Gets lots of families together . Even though they should do it without a holiday . It’s a joy to see so many spending family time together
