Here is why we have Trump.

This amazing fellow has amassed a fortune in the hundreds of millions selling his version of God’s word. In a country where this can happen, having a con man in the White House may have been inevitable. Tragic that it comes at time where thousands of lives will have been sacrificed to the mindless idiocy being sold.

  1. “Maybe you’d like to send a $91 seed, and that’s just putting your faith with Psalm 91,” she said. That psalm refers to being saved from “deadly pestilence” and “plague.”

    White also suggested sending $9 or “whatever God tells you to do,” adding: “Don’t forget, now is not the time to abandon your covenant with God. It’s a time that you go deeper. Stand with your pastor.”

    Paula White during a prayer session March 17. That is when the DOW had been tanking, layoffs were starting and Trump finally decided it was time to accept that the pandemic was here and serious.

    Like Copeland, she is a prosperity preacher. They both have fortunes in the 100’s of millions. She is on Trump’s advisory committee for religion.

    And they both export the faithful to keep tithing to them despite being jobless.

    Taking advantage of people during a crisis is beyond despicable. Deplorable, really.

    In a basket perhaps?

    1. Particularly galling: twice during the Coronavirus briefings the Vice President of the United States has reminded the “faithful” to remember to give money to their churches.

      NOT an acceptable use of taxpayer money.

      1. Paula White’s message of sending $91 is based on Psalm 91.

        I wonder if she is trying to find a Psalm 1200.

        Better for the devout to heed the following…at no monetary cost I might add.

        “ 2 Corinthians 11: 13-15
        “Those men are not true apostles—they are false apostles, who lie about their work and disguise themselves to look like real apostles of Christ. Well, no wonder! Even Satan can disguise himself to look like an angel of light! So it is no great thing if his servants disguise themselves to look like servants of righteousness. In the end they will get exactly what their actions deserve.”

      2. It seems that some Trump genius intends to dispense money meant for small businesses to churches to pay their staff so they can keep on preaching the word of God – often according to Trump.

        This is a significant step toward the Theocracy that is at the center of Trump’s support.

    1. Possibly. Comey helped immensely, of course.

      But what you just wrote could be true of most horrible and incompetent leaders elected or appointed throughout history.

      As put forth by Russell Crowe in “Master and Commander”, for just enough voters in 3 key states he was the “lesser of two weevils”.

      For 2.5 million more real Americans, Hillary was the choice.

      My opinion, of course.

      And hucksters and liars such as Copeland did a terrific job of demonizing her. They are now trying to do the same to Joe Biden. Why? Because in terms of policy, competence and concern nobody is buying what they are selling.

      Luckily for this country with Biden they do not have decades to prey on the weak-minded. Trump knows he is toast. Biden is the candidate he least wanted to run against. For very good reason.
