Any person who writes a book titled Trumpocalypse: The End-Times President, a Battle Against the Globalist Elite, and the Countdown to Armageddon, and doesn’t intend for it to be satire, is obviously a beacon of political and moral insight. Author Paul McGuire‘s punditry also includes a statement about how, if Hillary Clinton were president, she would’ve called for the execution of pastors. It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so profoundly sad.
McGuire recently defended evangelical Christian support of Donald Trump on his radio program.
He began by dismissing the sex scandals as lies.
… After first insisting that the reports that Trump had adulterous affairs with pornographic actresses and nude models were “fake news” created to weaken evangelical support for the president…
The “fake news” excuse is so old, it’s molding. McGuire and his ilk might as well just admit that they have a severe allergy to facts.
Then he pointed out that even if Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal are telling the truth, Christians should still back Trump because the alternative is persecution.
… McGuire then proceeded to also insist that, even if the reports are true, evangelicals cannot afford to abandon the president because Christians are locked in a battle with Luciferian occultists for control of this country.
And here I thought Trump’s critics were Godless Communists. I wish the Right would make up its mind…
McGuire said that while he doesn’t believe the allegations and finds them to be “extremely suspicious,” they should not prevent evangelicals from continuing to support Trump even if they are true because, although his behavior is a sin, it “didn’t involve him raping or molesting or this other sexual abuse stuff.”
Besides the fact that he’s setting the bar that low — a bar that evangelicals don’t even seem to care about given their support of Roy Moore — what on earth does he think “grab them by the pussy” means?
There are also assault allegations against Trump by one of his ex-wives. I guess that’s also “fake news.” Convenient.
“Christians need to have a biblical worldview and look at things the way God looks at things through the Bible,” he said. “The question is: Do you continue to support a man who is fallen and imperfect but is acting as perhaps the greatest champion for Christianity, the gospel of Jesus Christ, of any president that we’ve ever had, willing to stand against abortion, willing to stand for Jerusalem, willing to stand for the rights of Christians and churches to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in America without harassment, standing up for the martyred believers by the millions?”
Let’s not kid ourselves: Trump panders to evangelicals, going well beyond lip service, because they’re the only people who refuse to abandon him. And who are these “martyred believers”? They aren’t in America, that’s for sure.
You can’t call the U.S. a “Christian nation” if the Christians in it are always being persecuted. Pick a side already.
McGuire goes on to ask what God would think if evangelicals withdrew their support from Trump just because he’s imperfect (an understatement if there ever was one).
My guess is the Christian God would point McGuire to the verses that explain the “fruits of the Spirit,” laid out in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
You know, words that are antithetical to the character of Donald Trump in every possible way.
