What does that say about these “men of God,” and their spiritual bonafides? Christian communities are riddled with flawed, aspiritual, hypocrite leaders who dupe their congregations out of money, property, time, loyalty, mental health and honorability.

Some of these grifters show up regularly in the news and as Trump defenders on cable talk shows, tending to be “prosperity evangelists” (‘the more money you give my church, the more likely God will reward you with wealth and health’). This is just another example of why no tax benefits should be given to ANY religious organization which is not 100% devoted to closely scrutinized, apolitical social work, period. Remember, you, the American taxpayer, are helping them dine at expensive restaurants, drive nice cars and fly on private jets.

While we do have “freedom of religion,” there is NO right for religion to freeload at the public’s expense. We should revisit how this came about in the first place. My guess--it has morphed beyond recognition.

After listening to Republicans drone on year after year about Obama’s so-called 'religious' affiliations, and taking unending pious positions, the gig is up. Remember the endless Republican prattle about Rev. Jeremiah Wright?

Along with the phony pastors who justify their support of Trump by saying things like “one's spiritual journey is a lifelong one,” they dismiss his lack of moral substance by suggesting that he is ‘God’s work in progress.’ That old homily suggests that Trump deserves the fig leaf of a flawed human who is on the mend and working his way closer to God.

Here are just a couple more of their gems:

"I know that God can use him even with all his shortcomings."

"I believe Donald Trump, not from what I've read in the paper, but in conversations. I've come to the conclusion that Trump has a personal relationship with God."

If you aren’t holding your nose yet, then you probably could drive around with a dead body in your trunk for a long hot summer.

Now comes his latest hooker/porn star girlfriend, Stormy Daniels (Jack’s nymphomaniac cousin?), who was paid off to shut up before the election. Most probably, he was providing her with career coaching? Your guess. Mine is that it was a $130,000 tax deductible 'business expense.'

As Nina Burleigh stated in an October 2017 Newsweek article about ‘prosperity evangelists’: “…President Donald Trump’s evangelical panel, 25 pastors and religious conservatives who have mostly dispensed with those Sunday school homilies about Jesus loving the sick and poor, and Jesus responding to attacks with a turn of the cheek. They preach that their Lord hates entitlements, from welfare to Obamacare, that climate change is the talk of pagan heretics and that their heavenly father is fine with nuclear first strikes, as long as it’s America droppin’ the hammer.

You may be familiar with a few of these characters: Mark Burns, Pat Robertson, Johnny Moore, Tony Perkins, Robert Jeffress, Jerry Falwell, Jr., Darrell Scott, James Dobson, Ralph Reed, Richard Land, Paula White, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Ronnie Floyd, David Jeremiah.

Get rid of this tax ruse to support these charlatans and begin to end, once and for all time, the taxpayer subsidies for crass, greedy, political, bigoted behavior disguised as religion.

Incidentally, this will save you a trip to Google: Satyriasis (also satyromania) is the corresponding condition to nymphomania in men. It is derived from the Satyrs who in Greek mythology were drunken hyper-sexual goat-man creatures who were attendant upon Dionysus. This same condition is often called Don Juanism, too. (stackexchange.com)

For you animal fans, if Trump was a dog, he would definitely be a leg humper.

Why do you care if Trump fooled around? I thought liberals/progressives/democrats think you should just look the other way, ala Bill Clinton. After all, its only sex, right?

This is why some from the religious community will support Trump over a democrat. From: http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/ 

"The Trump administration announced on Thursday that it was taking new steps to protect doctors, nurses and other health workers who have religious or moral objections to performing abortions or sex-change operations, or providing other medical services. The move, one day before the annual March for Life in Washington, was a priority for anti-abortion groups.

Administration officials urged people to report discrimination to a new unit of the federal government: the conscience and religious freedom division of the office for civil rights at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Roger Severino, the director of the civil rights office, promised that he and his staff would thoroughly investigate every complaint. For too long, Mr. Severino said, the federal government has ignored such complaints or treated them with “outright hostility.”"

Look at this way Phil, there is always a price to be paid after making a bargain with the devil.

KKK can sleep easier now that he won't have to bake that cake for a queer but he'll have to wait (maybe too long) for a blood transfusion because the doctor on call just happens to be a born again Jehovahs witness.

Speaking of blood transfusions, RS, cross species transfusions have been experimented with for years. KKK members actually require Type E* blood, which is an abbreviation for Evil. In the case of the *president, feral canine blood would probably work just fine.

If koal kar kountry had any cajones he'd actually admit his racism. Don't hold your breath.

Don't keep dis'n our four legged friends, in my mind any canine feral or not is more noble than the donald, if you need some four legged mammal to bring down to trumpkofs level try the sewer or wharf rat that spreads the plague far and wide. Though I think the cold blooded reptilian species has better prospects for comparisons to trumpkof.

Cross species blood transfusions? Hmm, swine perhaps? Gila monster? Deer tick? Tree sap? Are you sure the donald and followers even have blood?

RS:

Tree sap indeed. As for rats, they may offer the best hope of surviving on earth with the potential of evolving to high intelligence in the future. So writes Ralph Lewin in his poem "The Rat Race." So I vote for tree sap, and agree that dog blood is too valuable for those purposes.

The Rat Race

If Man should perish from the Earth,

His heritage perhaps may pass

To creatures of a lesser worth,

The enterprising rodent class.

Out from the rubble, dust and flies,

Out from the cellars and the holes,

They will emerge, to blink their eyes,

And gender intellects and souls.

The steady skill of paws and tools,

The will to wish, the love to learn,

With martyrs, kings, and other fools

To split the atom in their turn.

Till, wracked in fear in pride unbowed,

With cankered bones and mutant genes,

Seared in a spawning mushroom cloud

They blow themselves to smithereens.

Then, from the deeper, darker clay,

The silly worms shall turn and thrive,

Their heads no more than tails, for they

Have but the senses to survive.

from

The Biology of Algae and Other Verses

The usual standard replies from the hypocrites on the left. If you don't agree with me, you are a racist. That's about the only sad rebuttal the left ever has. That's okay Phil and RS...don't bother. I don't want you to get a headache from actually thinking about an issue.

Lets ask...do you know anyone who has been affected by Trump's decision for the health care workers? Did the mainstream media even report this? Are there riots and protests in the streeets? Of course not because it will probably never affect anybody.

What's funny was the outrage shown by the left over Trump's "____hole" remarks. See Sen. Booker's made up histrionics. He should get at least an Oscar nomination for his performance. The left's vitriol directed toward Trump voters and residents of flyover country matches anything Trump has said. Like usual, nothing but hyprocrites on the left.

Uh huh, once again you show your racism just as you've shown it over the course of a number of years kkk so man up and admit it.

As my 2nd post implied; be careful what you wish for mister. You seek to break apart the social contract then don't be surprised when it comes back to bite you in the arse.

The only example I see of racism on this forum is you and Phil. As a matter of fact, you do the same thing you accuse Trump of doing. Just the other side of the same coin.

How does it feel to be a brother of President Trump? As the saying goes..."brothers from a different mother?"

Come on, fess up...how many times have you and Phil visited the White House and Mira Lago? How was it to ride on Air Force One? Did you get a commerorative coffee mug? Did you get to meet Melania?

Lets check off the areas where you and your brother Donald are the same:

1. Arrogant beyond belief - that's a check

2. You think you are smarter than everybody else - another big check mark for that one

3. You make stupid, racist comments - triple check mark for that one

4. You think everybody is out to get you - check, check, check

You and Phil should take it easy on your brother the Donald. For when you criticize him, you are just denouncing yourself.

Two sides of the same coin....

Phil,

I call it the pyschological projections from someone that can't come to terms within of what or who they are.

It's probably best if he's ignored as he can't seem to stick to either the breaking up of the social contract or what on the surface is a more light hearted topic of mice and men.

All the preacher's listed above may or not be familiar with "Dies Irae" hymn in Mozart's Requiem (probably "too papist" to bother paying attention to since they're convinced the have spot already reserved for them because they're all "born again" in the most basic way (just a baptism if that much, but mostly a simple declaration) and they don't have to worry about having to repent for future sins. "OSAS Once saved, always saved") -- why should it surprise anybody to see such craven inconsistency and hypocrisy? Ever wonder why divorce rates are so much higher in the so-called Bible Belt and among non-mainline Protestant denominations? The Donald is just their kind of man for the job. So long as he keeps his political promises, they don't seem to give a damn. (Pls pardon any sloppy typing on my part. I am recovering from a stroke which occured around Christmas weekend. But with God's help and wonderful therapists at Mercy Hospital in Springfield MA, I'm making great progress.)

GOPervert Hypocrisy Is Normal SOP.

Christian liars, cheats and very racist puppets of Wall St.

Tony Perkins: Trump Gets ‘a Mulligan’ on Life
The Family Research Council head says that evangelical conservatives are willing to overlook Trump’s past behavior so long as he delivers for them on policy.

The Assassins of Youth: DARE t FRCn PDFA
Funding from LIQUOR FIRMS, TOBACCO COMPANIES, PHARMACEUTICAL FIRMS, COMMERCIAL DRUG MANUFACTURERS

Jerry Falwell Jr. wraps up a bad week for evangelicals

[Perkins'] comments went viral, of course, because the word "mulligan" is so evocative and because it seemed that Perkins was admitting what those on the religious right have long denied: They don't care about sexual morality, per se. That was just the cover story for the real concern of Christian conservatives, which was always to assert the dominance of straight white men over everyone else, to push LGBT people back into the closet and, perhaps most of all, to force women into subservient roles. As long as Trump's adultery and even his assaults adhered to an ideology where men were in charge and women were submissive, he would be loved by the Christian right. . .

As the clown act churns in Washington, DC, so goes the days of our lives, especially when it comes to Tony Perkins’ rationalized religious agendas:

Here are a few more schemes, compliments of Tony Perkins and his band of barbarians at the gate:

Don’t Fall For the School Choice Week Hype: Private School Vouchers Are Bad For Everyone:

We’re Watching To Make Sure State Legislatures Don’t Permit Religion To Be Used To Discriminate:

And then we have poor little Patrick Kennedy who is pissed because Trump won’t pay him anything:

Kennedy, the son of late Sen. Ted Kennedy has publicly fought his own battles with addiction, and others argue that the declaration is toothless because there is no funding associated with it. […]

Only $57,000 was in the coffers at the time of Trump’s announcement and Congress has not added to that figure. […]

Professional victim Rep. Patrick Kennedy needs to stick a crowbar into his family’s deep pockets to fund his blatant incompetence when dealing with matters pertaining to drugs and various social effects.

If Mr. Kennedy succeeds in some small way, which seems unlikely given his partnership with Kevin Sabet, maybe next time taxpayers will feel better about picking up the tab.

GOPerverts are quick to send soldiers, including "Dreamers" off to fake oil wars,

and just as quick to abandon them when they return home.

Televangelist Kenneth Copeland sells miracles while opposing the use of far more effective medical cannabis:

…In 2013, Copeland claimed that PTSD wasn’t a medical condition requiring psychiatric intervention, but a problem that could be solved by being a devout Evangelical Christian.

“Any of you suffering from PTSD right now, you listen to me,” Copeland added. “You get rid of that right now. You don’t take drugs to get rid of it. It doesn’t take psychology. That promise right there will get rid of it.”

Copeland, worth an estimated $26.5 million, cited demons flying on commercial airlines to explain his 2015 purchase of a private jet. […]

Rep. Steve Alford cites belief blacks more susceptible to marijuana

“Basically any way you say it, marijuana is an entry drug into the higher drugs,” Alford said. “What you really need to do is go back in the ’30s, when they outlawed all types of drugs in Kansas (and) across the United States.

“What was the reason why they did that?” he continued to a crowd of about 60 people, none of whom were black. “One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, was that the African Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because of their character makeup, their genetics and that. And so basically what we’re trying to do is we’re trying to do a complete reverse with people not remembering what has happened in the past.” [emphasis added]

Seems the only immigration GOPerverts object to are those with brown skin.

Birth tourism brings Russian baby boom to Miami

It's not just the Russians who are coming. Chinese moms-to-be have been flocking to Southern California to give birth for years.

What they are doing is completely legal, as long as they don't lie on any immigration or insurance paperwork. In fact, it's protected by the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which says anyone born on American soil is automatically a citizen.

The child gets a lifelong right to live and work and collect benefits in the U.S. And when they turn 21 they can sponsor their parents' application for an American green card.
