During his rally tonight in North Carolina, Donald Trump claimed that a Joe Biden victory this November means “there will be no God.”
Atheists: Our time has finally arrived.
He said it around the 1:04:14 mark in the video below:
… [Biden is] trying to go a little bit more right, like the fracking. “Oh, of course we’re gonna…” but six months [from now], he’s saying there’ll be “No fracking.” Which, I don’t think the people of Pennsylvania are thrilled with — do you agree? — considering that your taxes could quadruple.
I tell it all the time, Texas, right? Texas. They like oil! They like guns, right? In Texas, right? And they like God. So he comes out with a platform: “No oil. We don’t want oil!” This is during the… Democrat deal. “There will be no oil. There will be no God. There will be no guns.” This is not a good campaign!
That’s… not Biden’s platform. (And those are barely coherent thoughts.)
At least with regards to religion, Biden is a devout Catholic who goes to church on weekends… unlike some presidents. Also unlike Trump, Biden doesn’t need to tear-gas people for a photo-op outside a church.
But the idea that “there will be no God” under a Biden administration makes no sense whatsoever, even if that’s supposed to be metaphorical, which it’s totally not. Somehow, God survived eight years under the Obama era. I’m sure God will get through a Biden administration as well. There’s nothing about Biden’s platform that suggests religion would suffer in any way. Conservative Christians won’t get the theocracy they dream about, but religious freedom will be protected.
What does it say about the shallow faith of Trump and his fellow Christians, though, if their God can be defeated — destroyed, even! — by a centrist Democrat? How weak is their savior?
It’s not the first time Trump has said something like this. Just last month, he claimed a Biden victory would lead to “no religion, no anything, hurt the Bible, hurt God, he’s against God.” (Unquote.)
This is nothing more than a pathetic attempt by Trump to spread fear among his gullible white evangelical base. They routinely fall for his bullshit, and Trump knows he can’t win re-election without their continued support, so he tells them exactly what he thinks they want to hear, never considering if it’s logical. Pretending that Democrats hate God is the reddest of red meat.
It’s honestly more of a self-own. What’s the message, anyway? Is Biden so weak that he can’t get anything done, or is Biden so powerful that he can DESTROY GOD?! Pick one. It can’t be both.
And where are the evangelical leaders willing to stand up and say, “Trump is wrong. My God is more powerful than any politician”? (Don’t hold your breath.)
I don’t need more reasons to vote for Biden. But damn, even Trump’s lies make me want to fill out my ballot immediately.
