Memo to Mike Pence: Respect Separation Between Church and State

Vice President Mike Pence shared that he and his wife, Karen, are joining “Christians everywhere in remembering the sacrifice made for us on the Cross.”

Pence tweeted from the Book of Isaiah in the Bible, verse 53:5: “He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”

“. . .I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”

Thomas Jefferson

Christianity may be the predominant religion in America, but the United States is a secular democracy and elected officials should refrain from mentioning God, let alone sermonize in their public utterances.

Declaring that Jesus Christ died for our sins is not an inherently offensive message, and I rejoice when ministers proclaim the Good News to their parishioners.

But when Mike Pence preaches the Gospel in an official capacity it is patently offensive to Muslims, Jews, atheists and everyone, including Christians, who believe that there should be a wall of separation between church and state.  

It is especially jarring to hear Pence proselytize for the evangelical faith when he is the chief enabler and supporter of the most godless person to ever sit in the Oval Office.

Whenever I hear Pence act all sanctimonious I say to myself: STFU! You embrace and gaze adoringly at a man who embodies the spirt of the Antichrist.

There is a special place reserved in hell for the likes of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

Nauseating Photo of Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh

“The White House released photographs of President Trump’s Friday golf outing with conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. The snapped showed a smiling Trump posing with Limbaugh on the golf course at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., near his Mar-a-Lago club. Another photo captured Trump and Limbaugh posing with professional golfer Lexi Thompson on the green.”

Fox News

A picture is worth a thousand words, and these photographs speak volumes about Trump’s values.

It’s noteworthy that Trump, the evangelical hero, isn’t celebrating Good Friday at a church service but at his exclusive golf club resort. Trump may pander to white evangelicals and quote from Two Corinthians to curry favor with them, but he prefers the company of businessmen and celebrities.

Limbaugh has a big mouth but can’t hear his own voice because he’s physically deaf, and his golfing partner Trump is spiritually deaf, he can’t hear the advice of his better angels and listens only to the smooth voice of the fallen angel perched on his mushroom-shaped penis.

Trump and Limbaugh are as fat as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the gluttonous pigs are puffed up with pride and calorie-laden food.

In one of the photographs gorgeous professional golfer Lexi Thompson is standing between the two fat and old jerks. Life isn’t fair, if you’re wealthy or famous you will never lack the company of beautiful young women.

These two men who spend their time golfing and mouthing off do not represent the interests of the common man, and certainly not the interests of women and minorities.

I don’t know how any woman or minority can look at these photographs and vote for Trump in 2020.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a Fat Liar

Trump’s Chief Liar

Here’s the White House press secretary in an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday on why Donald Trump won’t be releasing his tax returns:

“This is all about political partisanship. This is a dangerous, dangerous road and frankly, Chris, I don’t think Congress, particularly not this group of congressmen and women, are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that President Trump’s taxes will be. My guess is most of them don’t do their own taxes, and I certainly don’t trust them to look through the decades of success that the President has and determine anything.”

Sanders assertion that Trump hasn’t released his tax returns because Congress is too stupid to understand his complicated tax returns is patently ridiculous. Congress—and in particular, the House of Representatives—is invested with the “power of the purse,” the ability to tax and spend trillions in public money for the national government.”

There are more lawyers, ex-accountants and ex-law professors in Congress than you can shake a stick at, Congress is supremely qualified to examine Trump’s tax returns.

Trump isn’t worried about Congress looking through his decades of alleged success, but his decades of corruption and shady business transactions with foreign entities and local mafia crime families.

Bottom line: Trump taxes are perpetually under audit, and even if they were he could authorize the IRS to immediately release his tax returns. Trump isn’t releasing his taxes because he’s under audit or because Congress is too stupid to look through the, he’s afraid that releasing them will expose his financial corruption.

I just hope that a federal judge will force him to release his tax returns before the 2020 presidential election.

Donald Trump Spends Good Friday Tweeting about Circle Jerks

How did the evangelical hero, Donald Trump, spend Good Friday? Did he meditate on the resurrection of Jesus Christ as an inspiration for his own spiritual rebirth in the wake of the publication of the redacted version of the Mueller Report that painted a damning picture of the mendacity, corruption and pettiness that’s endemic in his administration? Obviously that’s a rhetorical question,

Trump is as introspective as a steaming hot pile of dog feces. Trump spent Good Friday indulging in his favorite hobbies, golfing and tweeting. Let’s examine Trump’s holiday tweets:

.agreed to testify, it was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the “Report” about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened.

Leaving aside the use of an expletive at a time of the year when a Christian’s speech should be more circumspect than usual, Trump’s tweet is well, bullshit. The Mueller probe wasn’t illegally started, it wasn’t a hoax, and it wasn’t total bullshit.

This is why nobody but the @DNC circle jerk takes this seriously anymore.  That front page is a disgrace but in its disgrace, many wake up. Thank God for @realDonaldTrump for waking millions of Americans up to the truth about the @washingtonpost

This is a tweet the stable genius retweeted by some unknown Trump sycophant named Scott Atkins. I don’t have to explain to white evangelicals the meaning of a circle jerk, their church services resemble a circle jerk where everyone climaxes over the magnificence of Donald J. Trump. Although a more fitting tribute to Trump would be a golden showers orgy.

But to those who aren’t as morally corrupt as evangelicals, I may have to explain that “circle jerk” means mutual masturbation among three or more individuals.

I wish white evangelicals a blessed Happy Easter, may they attain the highest level of spirituality in their circle jerks and golden showers orgies!

Donald Trump is Like a Divorced Dad Who Lets the Kids Watch Pornhub Videos and Smoke Weed

“In an interview in London for her new memoir Becoming, former First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a stinging assessment of the state of American politics and, specifically, of President Donald Trump. Said Obama:

`We come from a broken family, we are a little unsettled. Sometimes you spend the weekend with divorced dad. That feels like fun but then you get sick. That is what America is going through. We are living with divorced dad.`”

CNN

There is more than a kernel of truth to Obama`s assessment of Trump, he`s like a divorced dad who gets the kids on weekends. He employs a laissez-faire approach to child-rearing to contrast with his ex-wife`s more authoritarian style. He`s the fun parent who lets the kids stay up past midnight, play video games instead of doing their homework and eat junk food.

The short-fingered vulagarian`s penchant for sprinkling his speeches with obscenities has given a green light to children, politicians and journalists to use four-letter words instead of socially-acceptable euphemisms.

Most Americans are disgusted with Trump`s impulsive, freewheeling personality, but his base is enthralled by his antics and shenanigans.

There is no subtly or nuance in Trump`s rhetoric, he doesn`t employ dog whistles to communicate his racism, bigotry and xenophobia. He openly and emphatically declares his hatred of Muslims, Mexican immigrants and gays and lesbians, and he has emboldened his supporters to display unfathomable acts of racism.

Trump profligately flings red meat to his follower at campaign rallies, and full of this poisonous meal they vomit their racism and hatred at minorities and immigrants.

Trump is the divorced dad from the pit of hell, but his evangelical base treats him like a Messiah. Screw Trump and his bastard children, I can`t wait until 2020 when we come to our senses, kick Trump to the curb and elect a responsible and sane president.

Pic of Mystery Cat Sleeping on Hospital Patient Goes Viral

“Andrew Falloon`s father was fresh out of an operation when he was visited by a surprise guest. After his wife went out, leaving the door slightly ajar, Mr. Falloon was found sound asleep with a cat resting on him. Mr. Falloon does not own a cat.”

Mashable

Fallon doesn`t own a cat, and the hospital doesn`t have any therapy cats on staff, it`s a mystery where the unusual visitor came from.

Some think the angelic visitor was dispatched by the Almighty to minister to the sick man recuperating from an operation. I think not. The kitty choose the sleeping patient to sleep on for the same reason that your pet sleeps on your laptop, radiator and your belly: felines love to sleep on anything that`s warm.

If Falloon had died from his operation, there`s little chance that the furball would have been found sleeping on the frigid corpse.

I must confess that the image of the sleeping beauty is adorable and I can understand why it`s been viewed online over 16 million times, but it`s not proof of a cat`s sympathetic nature.

When my cats hop on my bed at night, I`m grateful that their soothing purring and physical warmth will soon lull me to sleep, but I don`t fool myself into thinking that they sleep with me because they love me so much.

Mike Pence’s Unrequited Love for Donald Trump Will Never Blossom into a Brokeback Mountain Romance

Vice President Mike Pence refers to his wife as “Mother,” a sobriquet you don`t bestow on your significant other if you think of her as a sexual being.

Pence`s true love is Donald Trump, he`s often praised his boss`s “broad shoulders” and cameras always catch him staring lovingly at him the way a high school freshman stares at his homeroom crush.

Pence`s bromance with Trump is one-sided, he perceives Pence as an underling and not as a person worthy of having a serious platonic or sexual relationship with, and he`s oblivious to the homoerotic undertones of his second-in-command`s loyalty.

You may be thinking, “Stop right there brother, Pence is an evangelical who is vehemently opposed to same-sex love.” To which I would respond, “How many times have we seen this movie, the stridently anti-gay conservative turns out to be a latent homosexual.”

Pence`s unrequited love for the stable genius will never blossom into a Brokeback Mountain love story. Trump is decidedly heterosexual and he is too busy looking for pussy to grab, to pay any attention to his obsequious love-struck vice president.

But Pence`s substantial consolation prize may be that his devotion to the Orange Baboon will earn him the support of Trump`s base if he ever decides to run for president himself.

Donald Trump the Elmer Gantry of Politics

Donald Trump is the Elmer Gantry of politics, only he isn`t hawking Jesus, he`s selling himself. Trump brags about his wealth, influence and power, and he behaves as if he isn`t subject to the rule of law, Republican heterodoxy or social mores.

Trump is an out-of-control narcissist who should be anathema to evangelicals, but miraculously he`s venerated as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Elmer Gantry as portrayed by Burt Lancaster was Bible literate, and he knew just the right verses to loosen the purse strings of the hillbillies who attended his revival meetings.

Trump, on the other hand, isn`t well-versed in scripture, he probably uses his family Bible only to stash his copy of Penthouse in Two Corinthians. Trump mesmerizes his white evangelical base not by quoting scripture, but by appealing to their Biblically based enmity of gays and lesbians and powerful women. The more Trump rails against immigrants and feminists the more his white evangelical sycophants froth in religious fervor.

Trump makes wild and outlandish promises that even a snake oil salesman like Gantry would be too timid to utter, and he gets away with it. “I will build a beautiful 30-foot concrete wall from sea to sea and Mexico will pay for it!” Two years later and Trump`s vision of a grand wall that would be as imposing as the Great Wall of China has shrunk to a steel barrier that will be built on some critical sections of the border, and will be funded by taxpayers. And his deluded supporters sill chant “Promises Made, Promises Kept” at his campaign rallies.

Trump`s followers aren`t bothered by Trump`s ignorance, vindictiveness, crassness or impulsiveness, they are enthralled by his outrageous behavior. The more outrageous his rhetoric and behavior, the more they are convinced that he was anointed by God to Make America Great Again.

The movie Elmer Gantry ends with his church building destroyed by an accidentally caused fire, and congregants running away in panic. If only the Almighty would demonstrate his displeasure with the vulgar and racist Trump and his heretical white evangelical followers by unleashing a tornado on a Trump rally.

Donald Trump Wondered Why George Washington Didn’t Name Mount Vernon After Himself

“Last April, when President Donald Trump cast his gaze around Mount Vernon during a state visit with French President Emmanuel Macron, he had one big question about the Virginia mansion of the founding father: Why didn`t George Washington name the place after himself?

“You`ve got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you,” Trump said, according to a story in Politico this week.

CITYLAB

When Trump toured the Mount Vernon estate with French President Emmanuel Macron he didn`t bask in the historical significance or marvel at the architectural brilliance of the mansion. The only thing on his mind was: Why didn`t George Washington name the place after himself?

Trump may not know squat about history, architecture, and foreign and domestic policies, but he is a master at branding. Before he got into politics and he was a real estate developer the “Trump” brand had mystique and panache, and the rich and powerful paid good money to buy a condo or an apartment in Trump-branded property.

But since he has become president and he`s exposed his bigotry, racism, ignorance, vindictiveness and pettiness to the whole world, the Trump name has lost its luster, to say the least.

Washington`s legacy is secure, he may not have named Mount Vernon after himself, but there are hundreds, if not thousands, of schools, libraries, and public and government buildings named after him. When Trump leaves office, I doubt if there will be more than a handful of schools and other buildings named after him.

Mike Pence Tweets His Support for ‘Unplanned’

So good to see movie theaters across the country showing @UnplannedMovie — a deeply inspiring new pro-life film based on the best-selling book by @AbbyJohnson. More & more Americans are embracing the sanctity of life because of powerful stories like this one. #Unplanned

Mike Pence Tweet

Mike Pence film critic? I don`t think so!

I haven`t seen Unplanned, and I have no desire to watch it. But if I was considering the merits of the movie I would check the reviews at RottenTomatoes.Com by critics who judge a film based on the literary quality of the screenplay, the acting skills of the thespians, the visual talent of the cinematographer and the artistic vision of the director.

The last thing I would do is seek the advice of an anal-retentive evangelical who judges a motion picture on whether its message is Biblically-correct according to his interpretation of Scripture.

Pence is culturally out-of-step with the vast majority of Americans, while we watch Netflix and chill he watches PureFlix and prays. I`m surprised Pence didn`t warn male moviegoers not to sit next to a woman, lest the wanton woman distracts him from the godly message of the movie and leads him down the path to licentiousness.

Unplanned is evangelical agitprop, and I don`t know about you but I go to the movies as a form of escapism or to learn deeper truths about the human experience, not to be preached to by dour evangelicals.
