Trump Rallies White Evangelicals by Expanding ‘Constitutional Prayer’ in Public Schools

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Matthew 6:5

President Donald Trump marked “Religious Freedom Day” by signing an executive order expanding “Constitutional prayer” in public schools, his latest effort to shore up his white evangelical base with the general election just months away.

This executive action is emblematic of his tenure in office for the following reasons:

It illustrates how Trump represents his base, and will do anything to appease them, while ignoring communities that didn’t vote for him.

It once again drives home the point that the king of the white evangelicals issues executive decrees instead of working with Congress to establish laws that will withstand judicial scrutiny.

It demonstrates how Trump loves photo ops where he signs an executive order that is sometimes unconstitutional, and sometimes unnecessary. Although the Supreme Court banned school-sponsored prayer in public schools in a 1962 decision because it violated the First Amendment students are allowed to meet and pray on school grounds.

As long as there are students who haven’t studied for a test, and students who are afraid that their crush won’t accept their invitation to the prom there will be prayer in public schools.

But white evangelicals want their children to pray loudly and openly in the name of Jesus, never mind the sensibilities of atheist, Muslim and Jewish students.

Finally, it shows us that Trump is cognizant that the stench of impeachment won’t dissipate before the general election, and he will take desperate measures to shore up his base.

Let’s Save Our Democracy and Defeat White Evangelicals and Their False Messiah Donald Trump

When he was a real estate mogul Donald Trump made political contributions to politicians of both parties but mainly Democrats, including liberal icons Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

Trump carefully cultivated an image as a playboy by dating movie stars, Playboy bunnies and porn stars.

Prior to Trump’s announcing his run for the presidency in 2015 no politician, theologian, or pundit would have predicted that he would be embraced by white evangelicals as their political savior.

In short, there was little in Trump’s decadent lifestyle to suggest that the real estate developer and reality TV star would enjoy a third career as the Republican champion of family values and religious liberty.

 It’s 2020 and the morally degenerate and politically corrupt short-fingered vulgarian is embraced by white evangelicals more than ever, after three years of spewing vitriol on Twitter, making common cause with white nationalists, supporting dictators and generally acting like the antichrist.

Trump may have been a novice politician but he was a very cunning one and he realized that his surest path to the presidency was by cultivating an unholy alliance with white evangelicals. Other Republican politicians like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush have won the presidency in no large part by pandering to the religious right, but Trump gave them more than just lip service. Trump is the evangelicals wet dream incarnate, he appointed two pro-life Supreme Court Justices, filled the federal courts with conservatives, surrounded himself with a God-fearing cabinet and gave Israel everything on their bucket list.

Is it any wonder that white evangelicals hail the morally repugnant Trump as God’s appointee on Earth and compare him to a Biblical king? Is it any wonder that Trump acts as if the Constitution doesn’t apply to him and he’s above the law, when he’s treated like a Messiah by his base?

Trump has been an out-of-control disaster in his first term, but if he survives impeachment and is re-elected, he will be vindicated and emboldened, and so uncontrollable that he may bring on Armageddon. It’s incumbent upon Americans of all political parties and all religions, including evangelicals who recognize Trump as an emissary of the devil, to save our democracy by doing everything in our power to defeat Trump. For God’s sake and our democracy’s sake vote for the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020.

Defending Trump Won’t Spark Revival in the Evangelical Movement, It Will Only Incur the Wrath of God

In a recent speech in Louisiana, President Donald Trump commended evangelicals for supporting him in the fraught contest over impeachment. He said church leaders were telling him that impeachment was fostering spiritual revival: ‘I got a call from the evangelical leaders the other day, a whole lot of them. They said the church has never been more energized as it is right now because of what they’re trying to do to our president,’ Trump said.”

The Dallas Morning News

Historically the Christian church has been revived when Christians renounce materialism and secularism, and return to the foundations of their faith: prayer, reading the Bible and proclaiming the Gospel.

There is never a political component to true revival, revival doesn’t emanate from Washington, D.C, but from churches, large and small, throughout the country returning to the basics of Christianity.

Anti-abortion judges appointed by the president, or laws bringing prayer back to school won’t spark revival. You can’t legislate morality or revival, revival is a spiritual manifestation, not a political movement.

The controversy over impeachment isn’t fostering a spiritual revival. Consider how absurd it is to argue that for Christians to defend a morally compromised, politically corrupt, racist, homophobic, greedy and serial sexual predator is going to foster spiritual revival in the American church.

If white evangelicals are serious about being spiritually energized, they will speak truth to power, and call upon Donald Trump to repent of his racism, xenophobia, misogyny, homophobia, corruption, and moral degeneracy.

Donald Trump to Evangelicals: ‘God is on our Side

Donald Trump is courting evangelicals following a scathing editorial in Christianity Today (CT).  The editor of the mainstream evangelical publication questioned whether evangelicals could justify supporting Trump given his grievous moral failings.

The CT essay is an aberration, the vast majority of white evangelicals are enthralled by their Orange Messiah, and Trump doesn’t have to worry about losing their support.

The short-fingered vulgarian is trying to expand his support beyond white evangelicals by speaking at a Hispanic megachurch in Florida, telling the congregation that “we have God on our side”.

The most successful con artists never doubt their ability to sell a bill of goods to anyone, and the amoral, greedy, serial sexual predator figures that if he was able to persuade white evangelicals that he’s the Second Coming, then he might even win over Hispanic evangelicals even though he’s blatantly anti-immigrant and anti-people of color.

Hispanic evangelicals who support the stable genius should be ostracized by real Christians and disowned by their Latino brothers and sisters.

Real Christians don’t worry whether or not the Almighty is on their side, they seek to be on God’s side by ministering to the prisoners, immigrants and the poor and homeless.

You don’t have to be a theologian to deduce that God isn’t on the side of Trump and his Republican sycophants. The enmity that Trump and white evangelicals harbor toward immigrants, people of color, and gays and Lesbians are anathema to the peace-loving, merciful and gracious Jesus of the Gospels.

White Evangelicals Have a Pragmatic and Transactional Relationship with Amoral Donald Trump

“Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. is among the loudest public champions of President Trump, touting himself as the voice of the 81 percent of white evangelicals who voted for the president in 2016. Yet Falwell also says he’s never spoken to Trump about faith: ‘I’ve never talked to him about that in particular,’ he said in an interview with The Ringer.”

The Week

Evangelicals are so named because their main religious focus should be to evangelize, to share Jesus Christ with a lost and dying world, as they would put it.

But if you listen to the sermons of televangelists and read their publications you would get the impression that their main goals are to build quasi- Christian empires, attack gays and immigrants and promote the administration of Donald Trump.

White evangelicals have a pragmatic and transactional relationship with Trump, they don’t support him because he exemplifies the values of Jesus or because he shares their religious beliefs. They worship the short-fingered vulgarian because he doesn’t just give lip service to their pet causes, he’s kept his promise to appoint pro-life judges, declared war on immigrants and defend Israel right or wrong.

Jerry Falwell Jr, the president of Liberty University, acknowledged that he has never spoken to Trump about faith. It’s malpractice, or should I say heresy, for an evangelical leader not to try to lead an outwardly immoral and irreligious person to the Lord.

But of course, Falwell doesn’t care about Trump’s soul, he cares only that the stable genius shares his enmities, prejudices and policies. At least Falwell is more honest than his evangelical brethren who pretend that they support Trump because he’s a believer who’s been anointed by God to make America Great Again.

We shouldn’t think of white evangelicalism as a religious or spiritual movement that deserves our respect and admiration, but as a repressive conservative political group that merits our wrath and disgust.

Let’s deal a devastating blow to white evangelicals by voting to remove their False Messiah from office.  

Whiner-in-Chief Trump and Whiny White Evangelicals Perfect Match

Donald Trump is the President of the United States and the Leader of the Free World. He’s a billionaire with a beautiful trophy wife, who spends most of his free time golfing in his golf resorts. He has millions of supporters who think his farts smell like expensive cologne and his illiterate and toxic tweets are akin to scripture.

You’d think he would be a happy and content man with a smile and a kind word for everyone he meets, but you’d be wrong. Trump is the whiner-in-chief, he’s not happy unless he’s complaining about something or someone. Trump whines about every perceived insult and has a ready insult for anyone unfortunate enough to cross paths with him.

Trump is the perfect president for the very imperfect white evangelicals who are in a constant state of aggrievement. White evangelicals have convinced themselves that they’re a persecuted minority, never mind that they live in a democracy where Christianity might as well be the state religion.

Instead of enjoying living in a country where they are free to practice their religion, and Judeo-Christian values are cherished, evangelicals constantly whine and complain that godless liberals are trying to ban Christmas, Mexican immigrants are taking away their jobs, and gays are trying to convert their children.

Trump sees himself as the Messiah of the white evangelicals, he argues that an attack against him is an attack against them, and he seeks to keep them in a constant state of agitation. He knows that the more his base is upset the more likely they are to go to the polls and vote for him.

Enough is enough! Let’s give Trump and his evangelical followers something to whine about, by voting him out of office in 2020.

White Trump-loving Evangelicals are an Abomination

White Trump-worshipping evangelicals are heretical Christians who have ruined the reputation of the worldwide evangelical movement. Many evangelicals eschew the label and identify themselves simply as “Christians” because they don’t want to associated with the racism, bigotry and theologian corruption of white evangelicals.

White evangelicals are enamored with Trump because they believe that his presidency comes from on high.  White evangelicals are a blight on Christianity and a cancer cluster that has devastated the Trump administration. Trump’s cabinet and staff is infested with evangelicals, and they never cease singing the praises of their False Messiah.

Rick Perry, the energy secretary, stated that Trump’s presidency was not merely the will of the people, but ordained of God. He believes that the Creator of the universe is active in the details of American politics. Perry’s God is the ultimate white hat hacker whose divine algorithms resulted in Trump’s victory.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, former press secretary, said that “God wanted Donald Trump to be president … that’s why he’s still there.” Mike Pompeo the Secretary of State said that God made Trump president to protect Israel from Iran.

Why are white evangelicals persuaded that the a holy, pure and righteous God ordained a corrupt, racist, greedy, ignorant sexual predator to be the Leader of the Free World? It doesn’t compute, it doesn’t make any theological sense.

White evangelicals are enamored with Trump because he has appointed two Supreme Court Justices who are fervently against abortion, and hundreds of conservative federal judges. They worship the amoral politician who is the antithesis of the teachings of Jesus Christ because he believes in deregulation, cutting taxes for the wealthy and is anti-LBGT.

In the eyes of white evangelicals Trump’s adherence to their narrow interpretation of scripture trumps his moral failings and utter lack of qualifications to be president and they will remain faithful to him to the detriment of their eternal souls.

Trump was elected by rednecks, racists and religious heretics, not by God. Americans, whether they’re Republican, Democrat or Independent, especially if they are Christians should do everything in their power to defeat the abomination who is destroying democracy and corrupting Christianity.

For What Shall it Profit an Evangelical if He Gains Political Power But Loses His Own Soul?

Donald Trump has been impeached, the ultimate rebuke of Congress on a corrupt, greedy, unethical and immoral president. But his evangelical base continues to treat him like a Rock God at his all-too-frequent political rallies.

It’s manifest that any thoughtful, reasonable and religious individual would discern that Trump’s three years in power has exposed him as too incompetent, unethical and intemperate to be the type of leader that will cause the Almighty to bless our country and lead citizens to listen to their better angels.

It’s self-evident, even to someone with only a rudimentary understanding of the Bible, that Trump is not fit to be the commander-in-chief responsible for making military decisions that may result in the death of hundreds of our soldiers.

Is the evangelicals’ Faustian bargain with the devil worth the nomination of federal judges that rule in favor of the wealthy, the elimination of regulations that harm the environment and tax cuts benefit the wealthy?

For what shall it profit an evangelical if he gains political power but loses his own soul?

Evangelical Magazine Christianity Today Says ‘Trump Should be Removed From Office’

“The evangelical magazine founded by the late Rev. Billy Graham published a surprising editorial Thursday calling for President Trump’s removal and describing him as “a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused.”

Whether Mr. Trump should be removed from office by the Senate or by popular vote next election—that is a matter of prudential judgment,’ said the piece, written by editor in chief Mark Galli. ‘That he should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments.’”

The Washington Post

Donald Trump was quick to respond to Christianity Today’s searing editorial on Twitter:

“A far left magazine, or very ‘progressive,’ as some would call it, which has been doing poorly and hasn’t been involved with the Billy Graham family for many years, Christianity Today, knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather…..

have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President. No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading ET again!

As usual Trump’s tweet was chock full of lies, typos and mischaracterizations. Christianity Today (CT) is not a far-left magazine, it’s a centrist evangelical publication.

The White House released a rough transcript or summary of the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the call wasn’t routine, unless you consider bribery routine.

It’s not the editor of CT who knows nothing about reading, it’s the functionally-illiterate president of the United States who never reads. I doubt if he even read Galli’s editorial, one of his aides probably summarized the essay for him.

No president has done more to discredit the evangelical community than Trump, the unholy union between the short-fingered vulgarian and white evangelicals has tarnished the evangelical movement. Evangelicals justification of Trump’s racism, cruelty, misogyny, sexually predatory behavior and vulgarity has diminished their effectiveness as witnesses of Jesus Christ.

The CT article will have a minimal effect on white evangelicals’ infatuation with Trump, they simply don’t read intellectual religious journals. They are more likely to read Penthouse Forum or the online rant of an end time evangelist.

If Jesus Christ Himself wrote a new addition to the New Testament condemning the immorality and corruption of Trump, they would ignore it.

White Evangelicals Besotted With the Ultimate Narcissist, Donald Trump

At its mythic heart, narcissism is a story of disappointment. The ancient source is the Greek tale of Narcissus, a beautiful young boy who falls in love with his reflection in a pool. Captivated with his beguiling image, Narcissus vows never to leave the object of his desire. But the reflection—forever outside his embrace—fails to reciprocate, and as a result Narcissus melts away (in one version of the story), a victim of the passion burning inside of him. The lover’s inconsolable disappointment is that he cannot consummate his love for the reflection, his love for himself.


The Atlantic


Donald Trump is neither young nor handsome, he is a septuagenarian with an orange-tinged face whose most remarkable feature is a mouth that bears an uncanny resemblance to a sphincter.

However like Narcissus of Greek mythology Trump has fallen in love with his own reflection. When the orange troll asks the Magic Mirror, “Who is the fairest of them all”, like a true Trump sycophant the Magic Mirror answers:


“Sir you are the fairest of them all. You have the visage of a Greek god! Your powerful mighty hands hint at the awesome size of your phallus and your head is twice the size of a mere mortal for it houses a humongous brain.

Narcissists have many acquaintances but few friends. They are glib, witty, and charming, and they are always the life of the party. But life isn’t a party and narcissists soon wear out their welcome if you have to interact with them every day at work or at home.

Trump’s biographers agree that he has few, if any friends, but many acquaintances who are attracted by his power, wealth and outrageous behavior.

But Trump’s narcissism hasn’t worn thin with his base, there isn’t an unconstitutional policy, immoral behavior, vulgar tweet or vain boast that they won’t justify, excuse or forgive. This is incomprehensible and frustrating to the normal person who was sick and tired of Trump’s mean tweets, racist comments, and self-centered behavior after just a few weeks in office.

Why haven’t Trump’s evangelical supporters lost faith in him? These true believers would be repulsed by his vulgarity, stupidity and grotesqueness if he was a house guest for a week, but from afar the obese buffoon looks like a dashing and fearless slayer of liberals and godless heathen who has been anointed by God to save White America.

If there’s a God in heaven white evangelicals who support Trump will spend eternity in hell with their beloved false God.
