During his super-spreader church event over the weekend, a lot of attention was paid to how Pastors Marc and Denise Goulet worshipped Donald Trump.
Without masks on their faces, they blessed Trump and told him they had a sign from God that he would be re-elected.
But in addition to all that, Denise Goulet declared Trump the apple of God’s eye.
After apparently confusing the terms “second win” and “second wind,” Goulet tried explaining herself:
“And there’s also this a second wind, if you add ‘d,’ it’s the Holy Spirit,” Goulet continued. “And the Lord showed me today that you are coming to get a second wind, another infilling of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit makes you able to finish. Take this to the end, Mr. President. And then he said to me that you were the apple of his eye — that’s what we are, friends, we’re the apple of his eye — and that he’s protecting you like he is protecting the ancient foundations of our nation. God wants to be in the middle of our nation.”
God’s not voting in the election. The people are. And if 2016 is any indication, then Trump is on track to lose by an even larger popular vote margin than before. (The Electoral College is another issue.) If he loses, though, you have to wonder if Trump or his evangelical supporters will blame God for rigging the election.
None of it is the sort of thing that makes Goulet’s God look good.
