“Graham and 250 other Christian leaders are calling for Sunday, June 2, to be a ‘Special Day of Prayer for the President’ in hopes God will ‘protect, strengthen, embolden and direct’ Trump against his political foes.
‘President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency,’ Graham posted Sunday on Facebook.
‘In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God. This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice. Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President,’ said his post.”
We are living in perilous times and it’s incumbent upon prophets of God to speak truth to power and condemn ruthless authoritarians like Kim Jong-un, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.
We need a man of God to stand in the breach and rail against the racism, homophobia, misogyny and xenophobia of the Trump administration. Someone like Nathan the prophet who confronted King David over his adulterous relationship with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband to cover-up the affair.
Evangelical leaders like Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell Jr. speak out in no uncertain terms against the sexual immorality in Hollywood, but they give their false Messiah a mulligan for his myriad sexual indiscretions.
When Franklin and his ilk say they’re praying for Trump they don’t mean that they will pray that he will repent from his vulgarity, racism, intolerance and pettiness. They’re asking the Almighty to protect and strengthen Trump in his mission to Make America Great by demonizing immigrants, stripping away rights from transgender individuals, and appointed conservative judges who will overturn Roe vs Wade.
It’s blasphemous that white evangelicals are praying that the Supreme Being will protect the most evil American president in history, but at least we know that their thoughts and prayers have the efficacy of belches and farts.
I don’t know what I’ll be doing on June 2, I certainly won’t be praying for Trump but I know what I will be doing November 2020: voting for the Democrat who will face off against the fucking moron.
