Palestinians Ill Served by Hamas and Israeli Regime!

“Responding to calls by evangelical leaders to designate this Sunday as a Global Day of Prayer for Peace and Security in the Middle East, many churches across the United States are praying for peace in Israel as a week of violence in the region is being described as the worst since 2014.

Christian Post

Israel looms large in the eschatology of evangelicals, they believe that the final battle between the forces of good and evil will take place in Megiddo, pitting God’s anointed Israel against Egypt, Russia, Iran, Turkey and most of the Arab nations.

Every evangelical worth his salt swears that Jehovah hates gays and lesbians, religious minorities and that He will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel.

The evangelicals Israel-centric theology gives the Prime Minister of Israel carte blanche to subjugate Palestinians, steal their land and treat them like 3rd class citizens without losing the support of American evangelicals.

The current Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, is an indicted tyrant who presides over an apartheid regime, but that’s kosher with evangelicals because they unequivocally support the Zionist state.

The Rev. Johnnie Moore, president of the Congress of Christian Leaders, called upon evangelicals and others around the world, to pray for Israelis & Palestinians victimized by Hamas terrorists.

Hamas is a terrorist organization that uses Palestinian civilians as a shield, and they indiscriminately fire rockets at Israel, but Israel provoked this latest cycle of bloodshed by trying to evict Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem and by lobbing tear gas at Muslims praying at the Al-Aqsa mosque.

How about praying for the Israeli and Palestinians victims of violence in the land of Palestine? How about not supporting the terrorist Hamas organization and the apartheid regime of Israel?

There won’t be peace in Israel until the Israeli government realizes that Palestinians and Israelis are the children of God, and both tribes deserve to live in peace and equality in the Holy Land.

Donald Trump is a Pimp and His White Evangelical Followers are Hoes

Donald Trump loved the pomp and circumstance of the presidency in the same manner that a pimp loves the perks of his profession, the diamond-encrusted pimp stick, the gold-plated pimp cup and the tricked-out Cadillac Escalade.

Trump loved disembarking from Air Force One and strutting to a lectern emblazoned with the presidential seal and addressing his supporters who would hang on his every inane word, he was a master of the pimp game.

But Trump hated the actual work of running the country, he spent his mornings in bed watching the cable news programs, strolled to the Oval Office at noon to give his aides an opportunity to tell him what a great job he was doing, played golf in the afternoon, and topped of the day by tweeting until the early morning hours.

When Trump was president, he was the happiest when he was holding a MAGA rally, a cult leader craves and needs the adulation of his disciples. Trump has fooled himself into believing that he won the election and that he’s still the legitimate president, and next month he will start holding MAGA rallies again.

I expect enthusiastic crowds at his rallies, and his white evangelical followers to worship him as their messiah, with the expectation that the rallies will hasten the Second Coming of Donald Trump.

But I also expect the mainstream media to ignore his rallies, pundits to criticize his narcissism and late-night comics to mock him mercilessly.

A pimp’s mantra is “Pimps Up, Ho’s Down”, and Trump’s slogan is “I rule, and my followers bow down.”

If only white evangelicals would realize that they ain’t nothing but Trump’s hoes.

It’s Time to Cancel White Evangelicals

Since the 70’s decades evangelicals have preferred the “Christian family values” of GOP candidates over the perceived secular values of Democrats, but in the Trump era it’s now an article of faith that evangelicals vote for the Republican party, and only apostates vote for Democrats.

It’s now axiomatic that white evangelicals are Republicans and Republicans are evangelicals. Evangelicals and Trumpism are synonymous, evangelicals have inextricably tied their reputation to the toxic Trump brand.

Evangelical Christians have ruined the reputation of all Christians, because nominal Christians, atheists and agnostics and people of other faiths don’t distinguish between evangelical Christians, mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics, and they will conclude that all Christians are racist, homophobic and misogynist.  

It’s incumbent upon the minority of evangelicals who don’t worship the orange false messiah and mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics to denounce the racism, xenophobia, homophobia and misogyny of white evangelicals.

In fact, evangelicals who don’t support the unchristian, amoral and wannabe dictator Trump would be well-advised to stop identifying themselves as “evangelicals.”

The word “evangelical” is anathema, and every true Christian, person of other religions, and agnostics and atheists must make common cause in defeating the false Gospel of white evangelicals.

Joe Biden is Fit to Serve and He’s Doing a Great Job

Biden’s dimensia is getting worsening. He is not fit.

Bad grammar, typos, and lack of punctuation are ubiquitous on social media platforms, and only an anal-retentive grammarian would throw a hissy fit if a tweet wasn’t a sterling example of the Queen’s English. However, I would ridicule anyone who misspelled dementia as “dimensia” in a tweet.

But this message didn’t appear on a tweet, it was the caption on a huge billboard that featured pictures of then presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris in October 2020.

If I made such a shocking spelling error on a freaking billboard, I would become a hermit and never again question anyone’s mental acuity.

Republicans didn’t gain any traction with their baseless accusations that Biden was suffering from dementia, and he won an electoral college and popular vote landslide.

Conservatives haven’t found a line of attack that works against Biden, and they’ve fallen back time and time again to claiming that he’s too mentally feeble to serve as commander-in-chief.

I’ll stipulate that Biden has lost a step or two, but he’s still a quantum leap improvement over Trump whose cognitive capability was as irredeemably impaired as his moral fitness for the presidency.

Only a quack would diagnose Biden with dementia, and only an idiot would claim that Biden’s demensia is worsening. Not only is Biden fit to serve, but he’s doing a great job.

Donald Trump: From King Troll on Twitter to Mar-a-Lago Blogger

When Donald Trump was president, he was the King Troll of Twitter, he employed his tweets to quash dissent from his own party, and to ridicule his opponents from the opposition party.

Trump and his Twitter army of 88 million followers ran roughshod over civility, law and order and democracy.

After his attempted coup, Trump was banished from most mainstream social media platforms, included Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

Four months after his banishment, Trump returned to the web last Tuesday with “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump,” essential a blog from the basement of Mar-a-Lago?

Before the ban, a single Trump tweet generated hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets and it dominated the news cycle.

How the mighty have fallen! Trump’s blog is limited, users can’t comment or engage with the posts, and his blog is equivalent in influence to some of the most successful WordPress blogs.

Blog away Trump! Only a few MAGA diehards are following your blog!

Obama Family Announces the Death of Family Dog Bo

Former President Barack Obama’s dog Bo died Saturday after a battle with cancer. Obama and his wife Michelle shared the sad news on Instagram, where both expressed sorrow at the passing of the pooch the former president memorialized as a true friend and loyal companion.

I can empathize with the Obama’s grief; about three years ago my dog Mandy died from cancer shortly after I was diagnosed with cancer. But life goes on, I’m now in remission and I have adopted another pup from the animal shelter.

Everyone needs the companionship and loyalty of a true friend, whether it’s the president of the United States or yours truly, a humble blogger. Friends, family members and even your spouse will disappoint, judge and even betray you at your most vulnerable moment, but a doggie will always look at you as if you are the most important person in the world.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Obamas in their season of sorrow, but when their tears dry, I hope they will visit their local animal shelter where they are guaranteed to find a puppy in need of a forever home.

RIP Bo

If Jesus Returned Today He Would Embrace Biden and His Atheist Supporters and Rebuke Trump and His White Evangelical Followers

Donald Trump’s 2015 presidential campaign was awash in shock and scandal and his tenure in office was mired in corruption, incompetence, amorality and chaos. Nevertheless, white evangelicals voted for him in overwhelming numbers in 2015, and after four years of Trump fuckery 85% of them voted to reelect him.

Joe Biden conducted a presidential campaign devoid of drama, corruption and the politics of personal destruction, and his first 100 days in office have been scandal free, and yet only 23% of white evangelicals approve of his work in office.

It should be noted that 89% of Black Protestants and 80% of Hispanic Catholics support the current president, compared to just half of white Catholics and white non-evangelical Protestants. (All of the data that I have mentioned is from the Pew Research Center.)

Biden has overwhelming support from those who are atheist, agnostic or unaffiliated with organized religions.

What facts can we deduce from this statistics?

First of all, white evangelicals have strayed from the faith, and they have replaced the love and compassion of the Jesus of the Gospels for the hatred and enmity of their orange messiah, Donald Trump.

An ungodly lust for earthly power has corrupted white evangelicals; black and Hispanic evangelicals, for the most part, remain faithful to their main mission of loving thy neighbor and preaching the Gospel.

Secondly, that a belief in a deity isn’t required or necessary to possess a moral compass. It’s the “children of God” who worship the filthy beast, Donald Trump and the atheists and agnostics who support the compassionate and kind, Joe Biden. White evangelicals and their orange savior are destined for the dustbin of history. If Jesus Christ returned today, he would break bread with Joe Biden and his supporters, including the atheists and agnostics, and condemn and rebuke Trump and his white evangelical followers.

Republicans Must Disavow Donald Trump, Their Cheeto Jesus

“The View’s Meghan McCain on Wednesday went off on the Republican Party for pushing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) out of a leadership position over her anti-Trump stance, calling the GOP a ‘sausagefest of MAGA’ that has rallied around a ‘Cheeto Jesus.’

Daily Beast

Meghan McCain didn’t break any new ground by dissing and dismissing Donald Trump as “Cheeto Jesus.” Detractors have been calling him that since he became the Republican frontrunner in 2015. What else can you call a gross freak with an unnatural orange complexion who is treated like the Second Coming of Jesus Christ by his followers?

Why is “Cheeto Jesus” the perfect nickname for Donald Trump? Let’s count the ways:

I love me some Cheetos, but it’s impossible to eat the addictive cheese curls without the orange dye making your fingers as orange as a pumpkin. Likewise, it’s impossible to be in Trump’s orbit without his shitty essence smearing your body and soul.

Cheetos are delicious, but if you eat too many you will gain weight and end up with a stomachache.  Likewise, too much of Trump in your life and in your politics and you will become physically and spiritually ill.

Cheetos are a light and fluffy snack with no substance, you would be well-advised to eat a healthy and well-balanced meals and only occasionally eat the yummy snack. Likewise, Trump is a lightweight who has no substance or moral core, and no serious person will ever look to him for political or moral guidance.

White evangelicals have replaced the kind, gentle and pure Jesus Christ of the Gospels with the cruel, coarse and corrupt Donald Trump. They will burn at the stake any infidel or apostate who doesn’t buy Trump’s Big Lie.

The GOP needs a political exorcism, the party has no viable future until they disavow their Cheeto Jesus.

Franklin Graham: Trump is One of the Finest Christians

Franklin Graham: Donald Trump is one of the finest Christians I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing.

If this quote emanated from the Vatican or from the lips of any respected mainline Protestant minister, it would be shocking and disheartening.

But Graham is a white evangelical leader whose best friends and confidants are other white evangelical ministers, and we have become accustomed to evangelicals uttering outrageous and un-Christian statements.

Evangelicalism is synonymous with racism, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia and authoritarianism, and it should come as no surprise that Graham proclaims that the racist, corrupt, petty and immoral Trump is a fine Christian.

Graham and his ilk wouldn’t recognize a fine Christian if they traveled back in time and witnessed Jesus healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and speaking words of peace and comfort.

Trump is a steaming pile of dung, but to his credit he’s never claimed to be an evangelical Christian. At best he’s a nominal Christian who attends church only on Easter and Christmas, and who has a penchant for holding the Bible upside down.

But in spite of the fact that Trump doesn’t claim to be an evangelical, white evangelicals worship Trump as a messiah figure because he appointed pro-life judges and he shares their antipathy toward gays and lesbians, immigrants and racial and religious minorities.

God: Franklin Graham is one of the worst Christians I’ve ever had the misfortune of creating and a primary reason why Christian theologians have a devil of a time proving I’m omniscient and omnipotent.

Evangelical ‘Prophet’ Robin Bullock Says It’s a Sin to Recognize Joe Biden as President

Self-proclaimed evangelical “prophet” Robin Bullock declared that it’s a sin to recognize Joe Biden as president and asserted that you cannot pray for “President Joe Biden because he doesn’t exist: You might as well pray for the Easter Bunny.”

Bullock wrongly prophesied that former President Donald Trump would win the 2020 presidential election. Old Testament prophets were expected to be right 100 percent of the time when they prophesied in Jehovah’s name, and a modern-day prophet who makes such a huge blunder like prophesying that Trump would win reelection should have no credibility or legitimacy.

But Bullock is still in good standing with white evangelicals because most of them concur with him that Trump won the election and is still the legitimate president of the United States.

Bullock isn’t an aberration or a heretic, like most white evangelicals he believes that his orange messiah won reelection and it’s only a matter of time until God restores him to power.

The values of evangelicals are upside down, they believe that it’s a sin to accept reality and recognize the decent Joe Biden as president and they demand that everyone recognize the evil, corrupt, racist wannabe dictator Trump as president.

Bullock and his ilk are on the wrong side of theology, democracy and history and they can prophesy their fool heads off all they want, but Joe Biden will be president until 2024.

Pete Buttigieg To Evangelicals: ‘Maybe A Vaccine Is Part Of God’s Plan’

“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Sunday encouraged evangelical Christians who are reluctant to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to consider that the shots might be a ‘part of God’s plan.’

‘State of the Union’ host Jake Tapper asked Buttigieg, an Episcopalian, about the large portion of white evangelicals who say they won’t get a COVID-19 vaccine. About 40% of white evangelical Protestants said they likely would not get vaccinated, according to a poll conducted last month, compared to about 25% of all Americans, 28% of white mainline Protestants and 27% of Protestants who are not white.”

HuffPost.Com

Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is a Rhodes Scholar, he served as an intelligence officer in the United States Navy Reserve and he’s a practicing Episcopalian. You’d think that the advice of such a prominent scholar, gentleman, military officer and Christian would be heeded by evangelicals.

Unfortunately, Buttigieg is anathema to white evangelicals because he’s a gay man who’s married to a gay man. All of his sterling credentials mean nothing to evangelicals, because the person that he loves and married is another man.

The Transportation Secretary is no fool, he acknowledged in his CNN interview that his opinion won’t sway many white evangelicals. No shit, it won’t sway a single white evangelical to get vaccinated.

I applaud Buttigieg for speaking to white evangelicals in terms that resonate with them, by asking them to consider that shots might be part of God’s plan to defeat the virus.

But evangelicals will never listen to a decent, intelligent and caring statesman like Buttigieg simply because he’s gay. However, they will listen to the thrice married, serial philanderer, narrow-minded racist, corrupt politician, Donald Trump, if he filmed a PSA asking his followers to get vaccinated.

It’s incumbent upon Republican leaders to urge their ignorant, superstitious base to do the right thing and get vaccinated.

When ‘Jesus’ is Trending on Twitter You Know There’s Something Rotten in Denmark

Twitter is a righteous stronghold on the Internet, progressives, social justice warriors, and civil rights activists use the social media platform to try to make the world a better place.

Nevertheless, the forces of wickedness maintain an outpost on Twitter, conservatives, evangelicals, conspiracy theorists and assorted riff-raff abuse the micro-blogging platform to troll the forces of democracy, enlightenment and humanity.

Even with the King of Trolls Trump banished from Twitter, the stench of sulfur remains, and occasionally the stench permeates the social media site when names for the Christian deity and Biblical verses trend.

“Lord Jesus Christ” doesn’t trend when there’s a legislative or legal victory for African Americans, the LGBTQ community or religious and ethnic minorities, but when a conservative politician, pundit or reporter waxes racist, xenophobic or homophobic. If Jesus is trending on Twitter, you know there’s something rotten in Denmark.

Today was one of those days when I logged on to Twitter, saw “Lord Jesus Christ” trending, exclaimed “Sweet Jesus on a popsicle” and wished and prayed that these twisted evildoers went back to the nether regions of the Internet where they belong.
