That's it. I'm putting him and Pat on ignore.

Was he hiding under a cupboard right after giving his statement?

The whole country muttering "God, what an idiot" does NOT count as prayer.

I really feel bad for Tammy Faye. She was a joke for years in the 80s and 90s. Then we found out she was basically in a hostage situation. I hope she's haunting Jim every day -- hiding his car keys and changing his porn passwords.

Is Trump himself doing anything at all for the Religious Right?  I mean...he's made noises but mostly he's called on them for PR stunts.

That's quite the sad little man.

Absolutely zilch.

The man wasn't quite sure that Presbyterians were Christians.

Difficulty: Trump is a Presbyterian.

Which demonstrates once again that Rel Right is only interested in political power to impose their prejudices on the rest of the country, not in anything that would actually be endorsed by jesus

well yes.  its one of the reasons why non-christians in this country are kind of worried about the wacko righties.

I swear by goddess tho...if trump starts WWIII, I will survive his stupid attempt at apocalypse, build barter town and enslave every last surviving evangelical and trumper to run my pig shiat generators.  i'll make every last gotdamn trumper die wallowing in pig shiat while the rest of us pagan up the wasteland with gay marriage, rampant environmentalism, and a comprehensive medical care.

You know, that doesn't really paint you in the best of lights.

I understand the sentiment.

Really, I do.

But saying things like that, whether or not you'd actually do those things if given the chance, helps absolutely nothing for anyone and definitely any further arguments you may have in the future.

I suggest maybe every time you want to say something like this, before you hit submit, change Evangelical to Jew or Muslim and see if that is really what you want to say.

did I forget to mention that I don't see much, if any, difference between islam, christanity or judiasm?  its all the same faith, following the same (largely intolerant and borderline insane) god.  if/when society collapses, I very much expect the local trumper christians to go hog wild shooting everything/everyone who isn't exactly like them.  I know this, because they tell me this every chance they get.  I believe them, and will plan accordingly.

In this thread?

No.

In others, repeatedly.

Wanting to kill/enslave/etc. others based on their religion makes you absolutely no better than the religious people who want to kill others that don't believe the same.

but they're trying to kill ME and those like me first...i'm just saying that they're only going to get ONE shot.  And goddess help 'em if they miss me, 'cause I won't show any mercy in return.  the christians in my neck of the woods are DROOLING over the possibility of trump kick starting a world war.  they think its awesome.  I'm horrified, and so is just about everyone I know.  they can't wait to purge this area of the unbelievers.  I overheard two older 'gentlemen' both talking about how great its gonna be to bring back slavery...and I don't think either of 'em was joking either. the store clerk sure looked uncomfortable anyways.  he wasn't alone in that either.

It's the exact same way here.

I still understand that promoting violence against them (as it were) before they commit violence against us (whomever that us may be) is the wrong avenue.

It just doesn't appear to me that fighting hate with even more hate is a supremely bad idea.

If everybody hates everybody then any excess will be excused.

oh I don't hate the trumper christians.  I just take them at face value is all.  when they say they want to murder non-christians and impose an authoritarian theocracy on whatever survives WWIII, I believe that is exactly what they plan on doing.

given the chance and opportunity, I very much believe that at least some of my local trumpers would try to murder non-christians and try to rule by force.  I just figure now is a good time to plan for that possibility, and find ways to prevent it from happening.  that said - if trump collapses civilization, all bets are off.  the trumpers are going to go all 'khorne berzerker' on whatever's left standing.

Sigh so once again the convicted conman who went to prison for stealing from the congregation is saying the thrice divorce walking opposite of christs teaching will bring the country back to god. If we aren't looking bing in these strangest of times I would swear you were farking with me.

you have to admit tho - Trump is absolutely fantastic for the doomsday prepper sales figures.  anyone who sells survival gear is going to make bank this month off trump's actions regarding north korea.

I always wonder how these people can tell the difference between the Second Coming and the Anti-Christ, and are they aware that Trump is perfectly capable of meeting the criteria for both.

the best part is that ALL the christian crap about the antichrist and most of the blather about satan is not in biblical cannon.  its all basically biblical fanfic created by bored monks during the dark ages to spice up otherwise boring copy jobs.

Just one more reason to hate Trump.
On a lighter note, Christians still trust Jim Bakker?

Yes. God.
So the decisions made on behalf of our great American Christian population will be justified in the eyes of the beholder.
Done.
Please clap.

Yes Jim, a twice-divorced serial adulterer who refers to grabbing women by the pussy, shorts his employees and contractors, and has pissy 3am Twitter rants whenever someone hurts his feelings is all about turning America back to God.

Of course, as a wealthy grifter himself, he's probably got quite a bit in common with Donnie.

Trump promotes hatred of immigrants, gays, minorities, women, Muslims, liberals, environmentalist, liberals. Betsy Devos is working to defund public schools and shovel money into private ones. The justice department is making voter disenfranchisment a priority. Affirmative action for whites is now a thing. He's fairly likely to get us into a war with North Korea or Iran or both.

All issues beloved by the "Christian" right.

Holy shiat! That's the same guy from the 80s!? 
A large part of my childhood was spent watching family members realize that a guy that looked & behaved like a gameshow host wasn't all that honest. 

Jim Bakker is a fairly common name. I just figured the dude selling buckets of potato soup to rubes had the same name as a guy that used to just beg for money from rubes. 
People are farking morons that now vote for gameshow hosts.
