I would like to hear a religious Christian weigh in on the theory that Trump is chosen.

On the one hand I see the argument that god is all-knowing and of course controls everything that happens but that reduces the argument to absurdity.

No one argues that god chose Obama. No one argues that murderers should be free from prosecution because god chose them to murder. I haven't even heard anyone defend the Catholic Church by claiming that god chose them to sexually assault thousands of children.

So I guess my question is, ok so even assuming god chose Trump, how does that change anything?

But would still be interested in hearing what practicing Christians believe.


tRump meets all the requirements to be the Antichrist.

Get real.. live my life according to what..mythology I don't believe in- hedge my bets by going whoring Saturday night and on my knees Sunday morning. The idea that a moral life is a religious life has a lot of empirical and historical opposition.

This guy studies the masters, writes his own music, covers OK and, some say, is getting closer to God

Is that good or bad????????

BTW: there's a CAL reference in the COME TOGETHER video. It's a "degrees of Kevin Bacon" kind of thing,
but it's there.

...and who better to be armed with that power than a thrice-married, porn star- and Playmate-paying, p@ussy-grabbing, customer-defrauding, disability-mocking, race-baiting, Nazi-sympathising, oft-bankrupt, impeachment-threatened president (Martin Pengelly, The Guardian).

It's amazing who in the Trump zeitgeist is accountable and who is not accountable and for what actions people need to be held to account.

Not to go Biblical, but this is an ugly, violent Old Testament morality (generously) built entirely on loyalty, hierarchy, and power. It is the code of Omerta, organizationally mafia, and in no uncertain terms anti-democratic and unapologetically authoritarian.

This is what the good flag-waving New Testament Christians have begat, a president as oppositional to Jesus' teachings as the Pharisees: the man doomed to destruction who exalts himself over everything God... (Thessalonians paraphrase).


Long but interesting read on the perversion of Christian morality : The Fool King

"The propaganda heist of the century is underway. Fox News has been hammering away for decades. The kayfabe of wrestling and Reality Television merged entertainment and politics. A quarter of America is LARPing 24 hours a day, and doesn't seem to realize it."

I'm sure Jarvanka said, "Let them eat cake."*


*I have always found it amusing that many Conservatives obsess over what they perceive to be the swindling of public funds by those at the bottom of the food chain but they are blind to the BIG TIME gaming of the system by those at the top. The gravy sucked out of the system by those on top exponentially dwarfs the crumbs gathered from the floor by those at the bottom.

My favorite minute of Biden since he announced he was going to run.

Maybe Biden isn't much smarter than tRump but I trust him not to be so corrupt as to hire foxes to guard the henhouse.

I think tRump has gotten to the point where he is parodying himself.

Donald Trump claims he got 'deep respect' from NATO leaders

Just because you disagree with someone, and don't acquiesce to a minority faction does not mean you hate them.

I'm sure that someone who keeps getting elected in a district in San Francisco really hates progressives.
