I wish conservative Christians would just be honest about why they support Donald Trump. They never come out and admit the only reason they stick with him is because he nominates their preferred judges and pays them the lip service they crave. They won’t admit that he’s not really religious or honest or decent. Maybe they think it, but they won’t say it.
Some of them, on the other hand, go even further. For them, Trump isn’t just Christian. He’s the Best. Christian. Ever.
That’s the opinion of Leigh Valentine, the host of Faith & Freedom on Bill Mitchell‘s “YourVoice America” network. After her co-host talked about how Trump has created a Christian-friendly environment, Valentine chimed in with the verbal massage:
… Valentine claimed that Trump “lights up” whenever he is around pastors because his mother instilled in him “the fear of the Lord.”
Valentine said that Trump “was taught the word of God” during his years attending church in New York and learned that “the power of God’s word does create life, it does create prosperity, it does create greatness and favor.”
“Let me tell you, whether you believe it or not, [Trump] is speaking words of life over our country and over this nation,” she said, “and every word he speaks, I see the hand of God upon it.”
“He is a very, very smart man and he knows what he is doing,” Valentine insisted. “He knows the art of the deal and a lot of this is God’s deal, let me tell you.”
I just threw up a little bit in my mouth…
If every word Trump speaks has the “hand of God upon it,” then what was God trying to tell us about “shithole countries”? Or about the Haitian immigrants who “all have AIDS”? Or the neo-Nazis who are “very fine people”? And that’s not even getting into pre-election talk about grabbing women by their pussies.
If God’s hand is on Trump’s mouth, then God is a liar. (Which would at least explain the Book of Genesis.)
And he hates Puerto Rico.
By the way, in that video, the logo for the show includes a few letters that look like a toilet.
It may be the most appropriate imagery I’ve ever seen for one of these shows.
