“I do really believe we have God on our side,” Trump said of his first presidential campaign. “Or there would have been no way we could have won.”
During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was purportedly asked if God was on his side. “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side,” said the President, “my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”
It seems more than megalomaniacal to assert divine purpose for one’s own political victory. Yet there are plenty of religious powerbrokers who have expressed just such a sentiment. Do they have a direct line to the Almighty?
“Blessed are the meek (humble) for they shall inherit the earth.” J. Christ
I think Lincoln had it right. God doesn’t pick sides.
