We can all pray that it will be so.

I wonder if post-presidency Trump will brand himself preacher so he can claim religious persecution when prosecuted for his many crimes?

He shouldn't have had it in the first place. Hypocrites.
 
2020-05-22 11:01:40 PM  
If the crazies are fleeing Trump, it's only because he's not crazy enough for them, or not "hurting the right people" enough for their taste.   I promise you they're not going to vote for a Democrat.  And most of them will probably still pull the level for R when they enter the voting booth in November, if the alternative is a Dem win.

In other words, ignore noise.  VOTE.

I've been calling for this for ages but God does not return my calls unless I use the Atheist Hot Line.

Still you know what they say:

The Mills of God grind slowly,
Yet they grind exceedingly fine;
Though with patience they stand waiting,
With 'zactness grind they all.

You just have to stay on the straight and narrow until an angel picks up.

Yeah, but who else are they going to vote for? Not that godless communist Biden.

Alright, so Trump/Barr gives the religious institutions the legal backing to reopen and allow congregations to gather again.
Even though it's against the governor's and/or mayor's direction.

The attendees get sick and start infecting others in the community. Who's to blame?

Sure as fark won't be Trump. No, he told them to reopen "safely", but I guess they didn't listen.

The problem with you religious types is how strictly you take these things. Clearly he means blessed are those who work in any kind of dairy position. Now there are limits, of course, Dairy Queen is right out.

Guys, they're on the fence about Trump. It's a fence that's 5000 feet high and topped with barbed wire and they don't have the muscle tone to climb more than 10 feet, but they're on it.

The fact that he ever had it is the clearest, most concise condemnation of "the religious vote" yet.

The evangelical right will always vote Republican. A Democrat will never immanentize the eschaton.

All that has to happen is for enough of them to abstain from voting. And they've been given enough reasons to do that.

Watching how other national leaders have led
How other countries have suppressed virus
Realizing that Trump is OK with lots of people dying
Knowing that no plan to protect you if you're old
Seeing the rich getting tax cuts while middle classes get a one-off sop of $1200
Personally seeing the lines for the food banks your church is running

The difference is that this crisis is personal.

Not that he has any authority in the matter.

If he didn't lose the religious vote when he called himself "The Chosen One" he never will. There was a time when that would have been seen as blasphemous by most Evangelicals and probably most "good" Christians, but no more.

And while he was just re-tweeting someone else, he did spread the message that:

"Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. "President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world...and the Jewish people in Israel love him....

....like he's the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God...But American Jews don't know him or like him. They don't even know what they're doing or saying anymore. It makes no sense! But that's OK, if he keeps doing what he's doing, he's good for.....

If ever there was a sign that the Anti-Christ was upon us, it is Trump and his Twitter feed.

I'm pretty sure there are Bible verses warning us against people like Trump.  I just would have thought it was the religious folks who would have heeded them instead of us atheists.

2) God sent the plague

Which one is more biblically consistent? Pick one, Fundies.

It's amusing that he thinks reopening churches are going to help his numbers. I have a cousin who is a born again young Earth type and his church is doing internet services and isn't going to stop anytime soon. He thinks if he's losing support with religious voters then the reason he's losing it must be related to religion. What I think we're actually seeing here is that a certain chunk of religious voters are realizing that maybe they shouldn't base their vote entirely on gay marriage and abortion. Most of these voters will likely go back to voting Republican in 4 years, but for now, maybe a Republican has farked up so badly that they might vote for someone else just this once.

It's kind of incomprehensible at times because punk music isn't always good about clear enunciation of lyrics, so you might want to look up the lyrics.  It's basically a song from 1993 about the current president.

I'll add on here, and point out that Bad Religion has at least two dozen songs at least as intelligently written as American Jesus.

You'd think Israel would be a little more wary of help coming from people who only want to help you out so you're in the right circumstances to be utterly annihilated in order to bring about the second coming of their messiah.
