I try to stay away from posts on religion but from time to time I read something that makes me sick and just have pass it on to my readers.
I keep reading this Christian and that who say that Trump is somehow the “chosen one”…..even prominent politicians like Rick Perry….
President Trump took a ribbing over the summer when he referred to himself as the “chosen one.” Trump later called the remark sarcastic, but it appears Rick Perry disagrees. In an interview with Ed Henry of Fox News, the energy secretary said Trump was indeed “the chosen one,” reports the Hill. “God’s used imperfect people all through history,” he said. “King David wasn’t perfect. Saul wasn’t perfect. Solomon wasn’t perfect.” Perry said he gave Trump some information on those Old Testament figures during a conversation about a month ago. “I said, ‘Mr. President, I know there are people that say you said you were the chosen one and I said, ‘You were.'”
Perry elaborated on the point: “I said, ‘If you’re a believing Christian, you understand God’s plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet in our government.”
Or that anyone that opposes Trump is in league with demons…..
…pretty standard fare among Christian right opinion leaders and politicians. But at roughly the same time, we got an indication from two other prominent Trump fans that it’s not enough to endow this strange and heathenish figure of manifold wicked ways with the cloak of divine sanction; his critics must be cast in the same apocalyptic drama as instruments of demonic forces. Seriously. Veteran adviser to Republican presidents on matters moral and spiritual, Peter Wehner, scathingly writes it up for The Atlantic:
During his November 21 interview with [Franklin] Graham, [Eric] Metaxas, a Salem Radio Network talk-show host, asked the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, “What do you think of what is happening now? I mean, it’s a very bizarre situation to be living in a country where some people seem to exist to undermine the president of the United States. It’s just a bizarre time for most Americans.”
Who but a demon would want to impeach Trump? https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/opinions-who-but-a-demon-could-impeach-gods-chosen-one/ar-BBXkciD
Then there is the Trump supporter that answered a question like this….
“If Jesus Christ gets down off the cross and told me Trump is with Russia, I would tell him, ‘Hold on a second. I need to check with the President if it’s true.'”
But watch the video for yourself…
I am not a religious person by any stretch of the imagination…but I still cannot see how anyone that is a “Christian” could even think along these lines…..
For me there is NO room for the religious readers in politics….they should stick to hell fire, brimstone saving souls or just singing….modern religion has proved that they are not the way to a better country for all its people.
I am leery of anyone labelled the “Chosen One”….it has been BS for centuries and probably the same today.
