This is the one hundred and seventy-eighth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism features a clip from a TV appearance by Evangelical Mary Colbert. In this clip, Colbert says Donald Trump is the Christian God’s chosen one, and anyone who doesn’t recognize this risks God’s curse upon their life and that of their children and grandchildren.
Colbert is co-author of a book titled, The Trump Prophecies.
“Accept who I say my deity has chosen or else my deity will rain down destruction on you, your children, and your grandchildren.” Typical religion, ruling through fear.
Sounds like illusory correlation to me.
We “have to” recognize the one He chooses.
Assume God chose him (Trump).
“Recognize” that assumption.
Woww, no words for this one
Logic is obviously not strong with these people. God chose Trump, not all the evangelicals who purposefully voted for him despite having several other candidates who would have fulfilled the same agenda without the scandals that constantly plague the current administration.
I would write this off as over the top, but I recently overheard a man in my local drug store saying pretty much the same thing while others around him appeared to agree. I was conflicted. I wanted to be polite (what the right labels “politically correct”) but I also wanted to scream, “You are all morons!”
I ended up not saying anything. This blog is helping me to keep my sanity by reminding me that everyone in the world is not a brainwashed evangelical.
Wouldn’t Slump qualify more as the Anti-Christ? And do you know if Brian Tome was pushing Trump on the flock? I live near Crossroads main site. And both neighborhoods Oakley and now my home Norwood are getting saturated with his flock.
