Donald Trump and the Holy Bigots

He's a dirty old man, a grubby sexual predator, a racist, a white supremacist, and an anti-gay bigot.

He steals from the poor to give to the rich. He's trying to leave more than 20 million Americans without any health coverage, and leading his country to war.

The only time he goes down on his knees is on a golf course...

But don't tell that to the Holy Bigots.

Because they love him and he loves them. 

President Donald Trump's evolution from twice-divorced casino owner viewed warily by Christian conservatives to evangelical favorite defending religious liberty was on full display Friday as he promised conservatives a return to traditional American values, including restoring "Merry Christmas" to the national discourse.

"Above all else in America, we don't worship government. We worship God."

He loves them because they are his most faithful supporters, and they love him because he gives them what they want.

Like an executive order to allow employers to strip birth control from their Obamacare mandate, and punish poor women.

Or the dispensation to discriminate against LGBT Americans in the name of religious freedom...

Those religious bigots love him for making hate holy again, even though they know he is a fake Christian. 

Several senior White House officials say they've never heard Trump reference the Bible privately or pray in the Oval Office — even though he has, at times, asked Vice President Mike Pence to pray. He swears frequently, even startling some aides with his coarse language. 

Though he has declared the Bible to be his favorite book, just ahead of his autobiography, he has not exhibited a deep knowledge of it. On the campaign trail, one of his more famous moments was calling the communion "my little wine and my little cracker" and incorrectly calling Second Corinthians "Two Corinthians."

And one wonders when the Christian Taliban will rewrite their so-called Holy Bible to conform to the dictates of their New Messiah. 

In Mark 12:31, after the phrase “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” insert: “Thou shalt not interpret anything in Section 12:31 as applying to residents of Puerto Rico.”

In Matthew 5:5, after the phrase “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth,” insert the phrase: “The meek shalt not necessarily inherit health insurance.”

And the good or heavenly news?

While we can use love to fight hate, and convert even more young people to our cause.

I very much doubt those fake Christians will survive Donald Trump...

    Around here we don't say Happy Holidays. We say Merry Trump Christmas.

    1. hi can "merry" and "Trump Christmas" go together? In what swamp do you say that? And how soon can we drain it?

    Canada better not elect Andrew Dotard who is Trump at half his age, or you'll be saying "Heil Twitler, eh" after every "Merry Christmas."

    Bah humbug.

    1. hi anon...yes, I would not like to live in Andrew Scheer's Canada, and have to walk around, under the watchful eye of Ezra Levant's religious police, saying "Merry Twitler to you!!!"

    Nothing screams scam artist more than the sight of the pervert Trump pretending to be a Christian. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic. Let's hope he brings down the roof of a church or gets hit by lightning.

    1. hi anon...yes it really is trump's ultimate scam. Only he would have the nerve to pull that one off. And those shameless religious suckers do deserve to be hit by lightning...

  4. Fuck these evangelicals and their unholy alliance with their deviant in chief. There can be no freedom of religions without freedom from religion. If they won't respect that, if they want to indulge their theocratic instincts, if they want to pursue a state religion, then their freedom of religion is to me forfeit.

    1. Careful. Not all evangelicals are Trump supporters. According to surveys, it's 80 per cent of the WHITE evangelicals:

  5. hi Mound...yes that true, and if they want to be protected from us, who will protect us from them? It's too bad the first American settlers had to be religious fanatics, and that they made it across the Atlantic. But what makes me shake my head in stunned disbelief, is the hypocrisy of it all...
