A BLACK preacher trying to protect Trump?

At least he didn't pull out the Curse of Ham.

I cannot wait to hear their defense of his various infidelities.

Just come out and say it: we expect Donnie to hand us some loose women to castigate publicly and shame, and NEVER investigate our finances. And maybe some gheys and poor people to fleece while he's at it. Y'all are just waiting for him to throw your cut from the tree right now, and you're doing your damnedest to not get noticed too much while you hang around the damn thing thrashing around and dropping limbs left and right...

We can all admit that Nazareth was a shiathole, right?  Everyone who met Jesus acted like he told them he was from Jellico TN

I'm so shocked I'm never going to flush the toilet in an evangelical church again.  Or at a GOP party needing again.

"Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" Pointing to his crimson disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers.  For whoever Roll Tides and brings My Father, Nick Saban, another trophy is my brother and sister and mother."

The avatar of lust, malice, cruelty and greed in the White House is simply struggling with the challenges of being a good Christian in today's world.

A Democrat who yawns during his pastor's lame attempt to tie his sermon into last year's pop culture fad will get thrown on a lake of magma to get kicked into the taint by a succubus wearing size 14 Christian Louboutins for a thousand years.

I am growing quite sick of the blasphemies of the Evangelicals.  I would go so far as to say that the two words sola fide constitute the most sinful idea in the whole of Christianity.  What was imagined as universal salvation has became universal invitation to sin.

Evangelicals, most of which only have a passing grasp of Christianity, seem to have a vested interest in supporting Trump.

Wonder what that is?  Why?  Trump has no good values.  He has novalues.

This is also part of the "Good Samaritan" parable. At the time, the Samaritans were the hated enemies of the Jews. But here's this guy who's a Samaritan who HELPS a random Jewish dude dying on the side of the road.

The subtext is, "A priest and a Levite passed this dying guy, but the third guy was good AND HE WAS A SAMARITAN, Y'KNOW, THOSE ASSHOLES".

I'm from and currently live in TN and I've never heard of Jellico.

"Growing"?

They've been immense hypocrites for a loooong time. Hell, embracing the prosperity gospel is pretty blasphemous.

He said ham, not pork. So bacon is still good.

I dunno, he looks like he might have some experience with a 'curse of ham', and some bacon, maybe a couple of whoppers on the side, ooh, and some of those cheesy fries too would be awesome. And can he get some ranch with that?

Besides, the Bible clearly says, "And Jesus looked upon the immigrants and said, 'Normally I wouldst say taketh them into thine homes and feed and clothe them...but come on now, clearly they are poor and brown, so farketh them...'"

I once lived in southeastern Kentucky near I-75.  Jellico is where you went if you wanted beer on Sunday.  More beer than teeth in Jellico.  I live in TN now, but not there, thank the gods

"But those who won't care for their relatives, especially those in their own household, have denied the true faith. Such people are worse than unbelievers." 1 Tim 5:8 (NLT)

Um, the context of this verse is a series of instructions about how the CHURCH should behave to be above reproach. The chapter goes on to talk about taking care of others in need. It is NOT talking about government, and the context is about treating others with love and respect.

Evangelical Christians are pretty well-known for cherry-picking scripture to suit their politics. But to miss the entire point of the passage and use it to defend a profane, prejudiced, racist remark about people in other nations is outright evil.

Further, both the apostle Paul and the early church would have been horrified at what this man is saying. Doesn't this pastor understand Jesus's Great Commission is to preach the gospel to the ends of the Earth? The apostle Paul was a missionary concerned with growing the faith, not returning home in a fit on xenophobia. Timothy (to whom the letter was addressed) was one of Paul's students.

If you want biblical references, you should go for Ezra 4, where the Jews refuse the help of the Samaritans for being foreigners (edited for clarity):
When the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the returned exiles were building a temple to the Lord, the God of Israel, 2they approached Zerubbabel and the heads of families and said to them, "Let us build with you, for we worship your God as you do, and we have been sacrificing to him ever since the days of King Esar-haddon of Assyria who brought us here." 3But Zerubbabel, Jeshua, and the rest of the heads of families in Israel said to them, "You shall have no part with us in building a house to our God [because you come from some non-Jewish shiathole]; but we alone will build to the Lord, the God of Israel, as King Cyrus of Persia has commanded us."

The GOP has been doing exactly this for decades.  It's literally their entire faith-based MO and how they keep the fundamentalist base voting for them.

So?

Parts of the US experience extreme poverty and would easily meet Trump's shiathole rule. Are the people from Buttf*ck, Arkansas less worthy as human beings because of that?

Maybe if you stopped having worthless Trump lickspittles on you wouldn't have these problems. Literally no person the Trump administration offers up is going to come on your show and say anything honest or intelligent. Ever.

Oh, the dimwitted yelling and pointless arguments are a feature not a bug? Carry on then.

I guess it's not too surprising, since the Republican party consists almost entirely of people who think the sin of Sodom was butt-farkin', despite having an explanation RIGHT THERE in the text.

Once again, these Bible-thumpers do realize that Haiti is a Catholic country with their dream laws, including laws on abortion so strict that doctors are forced to let pregnant women die than treat their preventable diseases because of the risk of terminating the pregnancy, right?
