No. 0     Original Topic:  What Part of Donald Trump Reminds You of Jesus Christ?'

I guess not only goes for Evangelical Christians, but for every other denomination that voted for Trump and still defending/supporting Trump.


Donald Trump's appeal to Evangelical voters is perplexing and bizarre, and it has earned the attention of more than one political observer. Samantha Bee dug into the phenomenon and came to the conclusion that it boiled down to a kind of identity politics, and now legendary documentarian Ken Burns has weighed in. He sat down with The Daily Beast to discuss a retrospective of his films just released online, but the conversation quickly drifted to the 2016 election.

Burns did not mince words when it came to Donald Trump and the religious right, the culmination of what he sees as a long con:

"The Republican Party has been extraordinarily successful at getting many groups of people to vote against their self-interest. Evangelicals are voting for Donald Trump. What part of Donald Trump reminds you of Jesus Christ? Trump lusts after his own daughter on national radio, talks about women's bodies and breasts in such a disparaging way, and mocks them. How is this in any way Christian? When you make the "other" the enemy, how is that Christian?"


Much of Burns' work deals with "race as a central subtheme of American life," and that extends to The Central Park Five, a documentary about five black teenagers wrongfully convicted of raping a white female jogger in New York's famed greenspace. Burns believes that Trump's role in that fiasco is telling:

"He shamefully took out a full-page ad in all of the New York dailies asking for a restoration of the death penalty for two 14-year-old, two 15-year-old, and one 16-year-old innocent children. While New York State laws would not have permitted their execution, just the fact that there was a rush to judgment ought to be complete evidence of how temperamentally unsuited he is for the office he now seeks."


And when asked if his involvement was racially motivated:

"Of course it was [racially motivated]. I found no outrage at the "preppie killer." The problem was that the initial idea of the crime was that there were these "wilding" black youths—a wolf pack—that attacked this innocent blond woman, and that's always been the primal fear of Americans as they tolerated slavery and then tolerated Jim Crow. You had newspapers in a progressive northern city sounding like a southern racist newspaper from the 1880s gleefully reporting on a lynching."

Yes, many politicians are buffoons, but, at least, they try to maintain dignity and decorum in their appearance. But Trump appears to be buffoon both inside and out!

Most of the Protestant evangelists are ready to sell themselves to fill up their pockets. Remember many prayed for Barack Obama also when he became president.

What is wrong with wearing an Islamic Headscarves which is a sign of Respect? Which one is worst? Wearing a headscarf as a sign of Respect or bragging about Groping female genitalia? And or insulting women based on their looks? Or making disgusting comments about a woman's menstrual cycle?

Nobody knows whether Hillary Clinton would have been a better President than Trump. But what we see now from Trump,you really think the man is a good President? The man is under investigation from the get go! The man is even now under investigation for tax evasion for his golf properties! The man bragged about Not paying federal taxes, how is that American? The man invited a Foreign Power to hack his political opponents email server? How is that American Patriotism? Obama was vilified because he failed to wear an American chest spelt/lapel. Obama was vilified and made out as Unpatriotic because he apparently didn't do the proper salute when getting off of Air Force One helicopter.

How did I compare Trump to Jesus? Trump's morale levels are so low I wouldn't even compare him to a prostitute. Shame on me if I did, for comparing Trump to Jesus. No one, not even the Pope is comparable to Jesus and just thinking of it makes my hair stand up on my back.

SMM nonsense (taken from this thread) -

What Part of Donald Trump Reminds You of Jesus Christ?

Not much, but why should he? Trump is not Jesus Christ, and certainly doesn't pretend to be.

It is only Trump-haters that would make such a thing an issue.


Nobody knows whether Hillary Clinton would have been a better President than Trump.

Another idiotic statement. It's like saying, 'Nobody knows if they'll wake up tomorrow.' Yes, there could be no tomorrow for virtually anyone, yet we know for the most part there will be.

Same for 'knowing' the difference between Hillary and Trump as far as what tomorrow would bring. Only the most ignorant, or agenda-prone people thought that Hillary would have brought a better and brighter tomorrow. That is why she lost. This is not rocket-science, no matter how much you try to make it out to be, SMM.



As I said, this is nonsense. All your arguments, your anti-Trump venom, SMM, reveal nothing of interest or of serious consideration. They reveal nothing really of Trump; they only reveal your hatred of him and your adoration of ungodliness (except when Trump is concerned) in the persons of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. It's like you prefer rotten fruit like bad apples over rotten fruit such as bad pears.

There is nothing Godly in your viewpoint, SMM. Your viewpoint is only politically-based, much as you pretend otherwise, and the political side you have chosen has a much closer relationship to Satan then it does to God.

Using your anal-ogy, Muslims should wear Crosses as a sign of respect towards Christians.

You comparing Apples with Oranges, wearing a head cover as a sign of respect and giving up ones faith are two different things. Wearing a head cover is a cultural custom in the Muslim community. The only christians I know wearing crosses are christian Clergy people. So you see sir,wearing crosses is not mandatory,not even for us as christians. So why would you expect Muslims to wear crosses,when we dont? Your as bright as the rock I just tossed off into the water.

Oh please don't try and give us that baloney.

You are either ignorant of islam or lying through your teeth about it.

And we know full well in the quran muslims are taught to lie in order to further their agenda isn't that right sweetmusician???

You know full well the quran instructs muslim women to wear the head veil.

"Cultural customs" have absolutely nothing to do with it.

If you think it is nothing more than cultural customs you haven't been paying attention to all the Women who have suffered for not wearing one.

Acid attacks, being spit on, stonings, beatings, jail, murder, etc.

These are the things that await any Woman who chooses to not wear one under sharia law, and even in many of the more moderate muslim areas.

And let's not forget that dreaded burkha thing the most oppressive forms of islam require women to wear.

Lot's of everyday average people around here besides Clergy in the USA wear Crosses, it's a cultural thing you know...therefore muslims should respect that fact and wear them too out of respect for Christianity.

Sweetmusicman -- a lot of the Evangelical community do not find Trump to even be a Christian, let alone 'Christ Like.' I personally as do most hope this changes (and it appears it might). We KNOW this is God's Will that all should be saved, right? Is it not your own for Trump?

To answer your question in another way: Who can stand in Christ's Glory though? (no one).

The community moved in quickly with prayer in knowing Trump would be the next President.

Why wouldn't we pray then for Trump and support him through Prayer and with integrity as citizens? You are correct, this was not done for Obama and it ought to have been so (and I stand guilty of this too. His policies are so distance from what I believe, since I am against communism which includes Government Health care).

I would like to speak clearly though ... I am not against Universal Health Care (that name is deceptive). I am all for everyone working for what they themselves obtain in this world and I wish 'universally' all would take their health seriously and work to obtain their health care (many pay cash in Canada, because the government health care system is slow and ineffective a lot of the time). This is what Republicans are trying to avoid.

And I am all about Charity. Look at St. Jude's Children Hospital in the US. It is COMPLETELY funded on donations and health care for children is completely FREE and has been for years via charity


So do you suggest people do not give and they need a government to misappropriate ... er, I mean take citizen's money for charity? Again, I tell you that charity is by the Billions of dollars in the US.

In Africa, I am told by a friend who came to the States that there are storehouses of food that can not reach the people starving in villages due to not being able to gain passageway/inner village struggles (this was over 10 years ago, so I hope things have changed now). This is not GOVERNMENT funding from the US, but charity. Not achieved via taxation just as St. Jude is not.

So, I am also all for charity if not government imposed or interfered with. As stated to you before -- I am just against theft. Taking from one person who busted their behinds so they would not be needy ... and giving it another who had the same capabilities but chose not to work as hard, is not truly 'redistribution of wealth,' but theft.

You will like this though: I do believe that tax breaks for the wealthy that are not equally given to the poor and middle class is oppressive and an abuse of power (this is not what Reagan did...he gave tax breaks to businesses to spur the economy...the wealthy had to qualify just as the poor/middle class).

God bless.

If you think it is nothing more than cultural customs you haven't been paying attention to all the Women who have suffered for not wearing one.

Acid attacks, being spit on, stonings, beatings, jail, murder, etc.

These are the things that await any Woman who chooses to not wear one under sharia law, and even in many of the more moderate muslim areas.

And let's not forget that dreaded burkha thing the most oppressive forms of islam require women to wear.

Lot's of everyday average people around here besides Clergy in the USA wear Crosses, it's a cultural thing you know...therefore muslims should respect that fact and wear them too out of respect for Christianity.


So wearing a head scarf is DENYING one'S christianity? You must be joking.

When Jesus would walk into the dressing room of unclothed beauty participants, in paying for hookers, in his comb-over,....hmm, or maybe these things didn't happen. I see no similarity except for both having two feet, two arms, etc.

Bachmann: Trump is 'Man of Prayer' and 'Wants to Lift up the God of the Bible'

Michael W. Chapman
By Michael W. Chapman | July 25, 2017 | 2:16 PM EDT

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann

(R-Minn.)

"Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said President Donald J. Trump "understands who the God of the Bible is" and wants to lift up God in America because Jesus Christ is the "underpinning not only of the United States but of Western civilization itself."

Bachmann added that Trump's regular White House prayer meetings honor God and make Christ's presence a "regular part of life," a part of "the America we used to know."

During a July 22 interview with host Jan Markell on the "Undersatnding the Times" radio program, Bachmann, who recently visited with the president, said, “There’s an awful lot of work that needs to be done, but he’s up to it, to making it happen, and people across the world are seeing it."

"Not the globalists," said Bachmann. "The globalists are being frustrated at every turn because he’s a very unusual character. He’s not predictable, other than he is committed to the United States. And he is unashamed in standing up for increasing an awareness of God in the United States. He recognizes how important that is and that that is a basis of Western civilization."

“I am so happily surprised by what I’ve seen in the Trump administration," she said. "I’m so glad for this opportunity today because I’m not here as a Trump cheerleader – that’s not what I’m about. But what I’m here to say -- as a believer in Jesus Christ -- I could not be more happy with what I am seeing coming out of the Trump White House. This is beyond my wildest expectations.”

Host Jan Markell then said, “Well, you told me there are actually like 13 true Bible believers in his cabinet. You’ve told me that there are regular prayer meetings going on in the White House, the Senate. Contrast that to the previous eight years where people were tripping over Muslim prayer rugs. So this is kind-of a new day.”

Bachmann replied, “There are prayer meetings. There are Bible studies going on. And the president himself is a man of prayer and a man who loves to receive prayer. He is happy to receive prayer."

"But more important than anything," she said, "he is a man who, I do believe, understands who the God of the Bible is and he wants to lift up the God of the Bible here in the United States. He understands that is the foundation, that is the underpinning not only of the United States but of Western Civilization itself."

"The Lord is working mightily in our government and I believe it is because God is being reverenced," said Bachmann. "God is being lifted up. Prayer is not foreign in the White House, it’s not foreign in the Executive Office Building. Looking to God, looking through Bible studies, this is not foreign now anymore."

"And this is a regular part of life," she said. "It’s an active part of life. It’s a part of the America we used to know, and be a part of, and now it’s coming back again. That only redounds to good things in our society.”

Bachmann, 61, served a sa member of Congress from 2007 to 2015, representing Minnesota's 6th District. She and her husband, Marcus Bachmann, have five children and, over the years, have served as foster parents to 23 other children.

Bachmann ran for the Republican nomination in the 2012 presidential election. Bachmann: Trump is 'Man of Prayer' and 'Wants to Lift up the God of the Bible'

Whine and cry some more :crybaby: you Godless, atheistic satan worshipping spiritual whores! History is being made and there isn't one thing you can do about it!

Bible study in Donald Trump's Christian-friendly White House is a weekly event for the first time in a hundred years


Trump shows off the Bible his mother gave him in a 2016 election video thanking evangelicals for their support.Facebook / Donald Trump

"Donald Trump has opened the doors of the White House wide open to Christian leaders since he became President and now a weekly Cabinet Bible study takes place with high level leaders like Mike Pence and Jeff Sessions.

Ralph Drollinger, of Capitol Ministries, is one of the Christians who helped to get the Bible study started. He thinks it's the first time in at least a 100 years that the White House has been holding a formal Bible study with executive Cabinest members.

He spoke highly of the people in the White House in an interview with CBN News and described how they make time for the Bible study despite their packed schedules. The picture Drollinger paints is that when they come for the study, they're not just coming to be polite, but are ready to learn.

'It's the best Bible study that I've ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they're so noble; they're so learned,' he said.

It's not clear whether Trump is among those gathering for the weekly study, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos are some of the regulars.

Drollinger just said he sends a copy of his teachings each week and that Pence is a sponsor of the study.

Unlike Trump, he has especially high praise for Sessions.

'He'll (Jeff Sessions) go out the same day I teach him something and I'll see him do it on camera and I just think, 'Wow, these guys are faithful, available and teachable and they're at Bible study every week they're in town,' said Drollinger.

Trump has been keen to surround himself with people of faith ever since he ran for President last year and it doesn't seem like his interest is subsiding even after coming to office in the White House.

Last month, a photo went viral around the web of Trump surrounded by Christian leaders praying over him in the Oval Office.

The picture was taken by Johnnie Moore, president of the KAIROS Company, who said this kind of prayer gathering with Trump was actually really frequent. "

Weep and howl for the miseries that will come upon you unbelievers. Like it or not, we have a Bible believing Christian President in office in America.

Submission to Spiritual Authority is a true sign of Christian Leadership.

Evangelical leaders pray over Donald Trump during visit to the White House

"A group of evangelical leaders prayed over President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, with Vice President Mike Pence in attendance as well.

Following a meeting hosted by the Office of Public Liaison on Monday, the evangelical leaders met with President Trump and administration officials in the Oval Office.

Johnnie Moore, the president of the KAIROS Company who was present at the prayer meeting, snapped a photo of the laying of hands on Trump that is garnering immense attention on social media.

In a statement emailed to The Christian Post, Moore described the event as "a very special moment but it was also not an unusual one."

"Various ones of us have prayed with him many times and have been praying for him for a long time ... We believe we are a praying nation, and we begin by praying for our leaders," stated Moore.

"As you know, most evangelicals believe it's a sacred responsibility to pray for the president, and this is very much in our tradition as Americans who once took — and sometimes still do take — this responsibility seriously."

Moore also noted that while he and the other evangelical leaders had prayed for former President Barack Obama, "it's different with President Trump."

"When we are praying for President Trump we are praying within the context of a real relationship, of true friendship," continued Moore, calling it "a visit among friends."

"Evangelicals feel the door to the White House is as open as it has ever been before, even compared to Reagan according to several that were there whose career began back then."

When he first declared his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination in 2015, Trump's relationship with evangelicals was a tenuous one.

Many prominent evangelical leaders endorsed other Republican candidates, especially U.S. Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas.

However, after securing the Republican nomination and since taking office, Trump's support among evangelicals has grown and remains steady despite his controversies.

Moore is not the only evangelical leader to see the Trump administration as offering unprecedented welcome for evangelicals.

Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, told CP in an interview in May that there has "been no American president in history who has reached out to evangelicals to the extent that President Trump has done."

"People would be surprised at how many believers there are in the Trump Administration. Very dedicated Christians," said Jeffress."

I remember the day after the Election, a friend of mine who happens to be white, remarked on social media that he “finally wasn’t embarrassed of America and our President.”

I sprained my eyes rolling them and they have never fully recovered.

Since then I’ve heard this sentiment echoed by more white folks than I can count, especially in recent months; supposed relief at once again having a leader who instills pride.

Since I don’t have the time to ask each of the individually, I’ll ask here:

So, you were embarrassed for the past 8 years, huh?

Really?

What exactly were you embarrassed by?

Were you embarrassed by his lone and enduring twenty-five year marriage to a strong woman he’s never ceased to publicly praise, respect, or cherish?

Were you embarrassed by the way he lovingly and sweetly parented and protected his daughters?

Were you embarrassed by his Columbia University degree in Political Science or his graduating magna cum laude from Harvard Law School?

Maybe you were embarrassed by his white American and Black Kenyan parents, or the diversity he was raised in as normal?

Were you embarrassed by his eloquence, his quick wit, his easy humor, his seeming comfort meeting with both world leaders and street cleaners; by his bright smile or his sense of empathy or his steadiness—perhaps by his lack of personal scandals or verbal gaffes or impulsive tirades?

No. Of course you weren’t.

Honestly, I don’t believe you were ever embarrassed. That word implies an association that brings ridicule, one that makes you ashamed by association, and if that’s something you claim to have experienced over the past eight years by having Barack Obama representing you in the world—I’m going to suggest you rethink your word choice.

You weren’t “embarrassed” by Barack Obama.

You were threatened by him.
You were offended by him.
You were challenged by him.
You were enraged by him.

But I don’t believe it had anything to do with his resume or his experience or his character or his conduct in office— because you seem fully proud right now to be associated with a three-time married, serial adulterer and confessed predator; a man whose election and business dealings and relationships are riddled with controversy and malfeasance.You’re perfectly fine being represented by a bullying, obnoxious, genitalia-grabbing, Tweet-ranting, Prime Minister-shoving charlatan who’s managed to offended all our allies in a few short months. And you’re okay with him putting on religious faith like a rented, dusty, ill-fitting tuxedo and immediately tossing it in the garbage when he’s finished with it.

None of that you’re embarrassed of? I wonder how that works.

Actually, I’m afraid I have an idea. I hope I’m wrong.

Listen, you’re perfectly within your rights to have disagreed with Barack Obama’s policies or to have taken issue with his tactics. No one’s claiming he was a flawless politician or a perfect human being. But somehow I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about here. I think the thing President Obama did that really upset you, white friend—was having a complexion that was far darker than you were ever comfortable with. I think the President we have now feels much better.

Because objectively speaking, if what’s happening in our country right now doesn’t cause you great shame and doesn’t induce the continual meeting of your palm to your face—I don’t believe embarrassment is ever something you struggle with.

No, if you claimed to be “embarrassed” by Barack Obama but you’re not embarrassed by Donald Trump—I’m going to strongly suggest it was largely a pigmentation issue.

And as an American and a Christian committed to diversity and equality and to the liberty at the heart of this nation—that, embarrasses me.

Well said, Pastor. Well said indeed.

Trump: 'We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values'

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump dove into America's culture wars on Friday, touting his administration for "returning moral clarity to our view of the world" and ending "attacks on Judeo-Christian values."

Trump, nine months into his presidency, has found it harder to get things done than the ease with which he made promises on the campaign trail, making speeches to adoring audiences like Friday's in Washington key to boosting the President's morale. And the audience at the Values Voter Summit, an annual socially conservative conference, didn't fail to deliver.
"We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values," Trump said to applause, before slamming people who don't say "Merry Christmas."

"They don't use the word Christmas because it is not politically correct," Trump said, complaining that department stores will use red and Christmas decorations but say "Happy New Year." "We're saying Merry Christmas again."
The comment drew thunderous applause.

Heated debates over the "War On Christmas" have raged for years, with many on the right complaining that political correctness has made it less acceptable to say Merry Christmas. Trump has seized on these feelings, regularly telling primarily religious audiences that his presidency has made it acceptable to "start saying Merry Christmas again."

"You go into a department store. When was the last time you saw 'Merry Christmas?' You don't see it anymore," Trump said on the campaign trail. "They want to be politically correct. If I'm president, you will see 'Merry Christmas' in department stores, believe me, believe me."

"America is a nation of believers and together we are strengthened and sustained by the power of prayer," Trump said.

This is not the first time Trump has addressed the group and initially he was not universally well received. Speaking before the group in 2015, Trump got booed when he referred to Sen. Marco Rubio, then a 2016 presidential candidate, a "clown."

Trump, facing difficultly in getting Congress to work with him on a host of issues, has focused more on his political base lately, catering to the conservative voters for vaulted him from reality TV star to President.
The President needled Congress on Friday.

"Congress forgot what their pledges are," he said about health care, faulting them for requiring the Trump administration to take a "different route" on repealing Obamacare.

Most recently, Trump rolled back an Obamacare rule that required employers to provide birth control coverage as part of their health insurances packages. Trump scraped that plan with a new rule that would exempt employers whose religious or moral beliefs conflict with providing contraceptive coverage.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, heralded that decision, arguing that it showed Trump is committed to "undoing the anti-faith policies of the previous administration and restoring true religious freedom."

The liberal democrats are busy trying to kill the unborn even after they are out of the womb and Trump is busy fighting all that murder of the unborn.

Sounds pretty Christlike to me...

During the annual lighting of the White House Christmas tree this year, President Donald Trump made good on his promise to bring "Merry Christmas" back to America. He then doubled down by referring the Jesus Christ as "God" and "Our Lord and Savior". As the economy continues to soar and Hilary continues to sour, it's pretty difficult not to be a little hopeful this Advent. At the very least, we can all agree that our situation as Catholic Americans could be a lot worse this Christmas. Thanks, Mr. President. Merry Christmas indeed!

It seems that Sweetmusicman has deleted his profile.


Despite differences in political views, I do hope Sweetmusicman might return when arriving in the states (he certainly offers debate for those desiring and I do not think it is meant with hatred). I hope too he derives a better picture of things in the US when spending time here in the States.

God be with you Sweetmusicman on your travels and ventures in the US if still making the journey! I hope to see you back in threads again (I am more in GD and Theo personally, but welcome you back). I sincerely do pray my debating principles of economics was well with you as it was with me (no offense taken or given).
