Threatening to bomb religious relics strikes me as more a crusader thing than a Christian thing. Oh wait...

Anyone who's advocating for Trump is a schill; he can do that all himself, he doesn't need you to lie about his abilities for him & he doesn't care about your interests unless you plan to vacation in his casinos. You can vote for evangelical causes but most of those have nothing to do with Christianity. I'm not religious but I don't think Christianity is about accusing your neighborhood of creating a s**thole country simply by virtue of sharing things.

It's Fascinating to me Growing up with 'Evangelical Flavored Folks' in a Deep South State Trump Town
'the Jesus' Folks 'Acted as' Here; was surely nothing representative of the Man in the Story; the Fact that
Trump Has become the Truth and the Way and the Light of How they Feel Just goes to show how 'Plastic' Life goes.

It Seems Fitting that they've finally Found a Man who Looks like 'the Jesus' they've always worshipped here; not all
of course; but the ones who are all about exclusion and chosen ones rather than one big Human Happy Love Family.

Jesus is portrayed as a very Liberal Individual in the New Testament; there are no ifs, ands, or buts, to get around
that; of course, except for Changing the Story to Reflect the Personification of the 'other Jesus'; 'the Conservative one'.

Basically they are looking for the Old Pissed off 'He'; the 'Old Testament God' to come back and 'Big Daddy' Put all their
Enemies in their Place (Hell); it must be literally Horrible to live with that kind of fear and hate day to day; year in and out.

So much Easier to Just Love it all; but of course You have to find Heaven first to Live life that way; that takes work; most
folks expect 'A Welfare God' to Do all the work for them; Perhaps a Magic Incantation like Romans 10:9 should Be enough; but nah; Love is real; but only when real.

Trump Belongs to no Essence of Love; Trump is Anti-Love; Trump is the Personification of Fear and Hate; 'Father of all
Lies'; so many old story book titles associated with the Human archetype of the Villain and the Demagogue of 'the Old
Testament God' Do Apply.

'The Orange Man Cometh'

For 'them' at least; he's back for real.

Imagine the Irony of Meeting 'Trump at the Pearly Gates'
And Him Saying, Well, i am the Jesus you Chose Welcome to Your Same old Home.

This actually Happens every day for some People who continue to Sleep with their Personal 'Trump Jesus'.

This is what happens when a religious movement sells out to a political platform: the religious people lose their souls.

Would American Evangelicals vote for him?

Would ANY American voting bloc support him?


American Evangelicals would never vote for a Jew for president.

Certainly, but there seems to be just as many wealthy evangelicals who sincerely believe that Trump is the "Chosen One" who will make America  white  great again.

People ask, "Why does allow GOD allow suffering?".

Answer:To teach people a lesson to better themselves.

So, GOD is hard core rightie?

"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness." (john kenneth galbraith) - that is where today's prosperity gospel-vomiting evangelicals come in. they make some interesting bedfellows with the "virtuously selfish" objectivists.

^ I was into that for a while, many years ago, in an attempt to make friendships. Belonged to a mega church with a few thousand members. They gave the head pastor a jacuzzi for his wedding anniversary! I was finding them autocratic and they also said if you're not prospering financially then you must be doing something wrong.

Sometimes big name speakers from the US came to visit, such as Benny Hinn.
