Evangelical trump supporters are such hypocrites

It seems that a few evangelicals have problems with trump. why? Because he uses words that they consider naughty. Yes, this is a case of the old “taking the lords name in vain” discussion.

I have always found that discussion absurdly petty. That is especially true when the person bringing it up is so delinquent when it comes to the true injunctions in the Bible. You know, those Old and New Testament injunctions about welcoming the stranger, being kind and “allow the children to come unto me”. Those injunctions would seem to be totally opposed to sticking children, including toddlers, in what can only be called concentration camps.

In at least one place, Jesus is pictured telling the crowd that they do what he wants when they feed the poor, shelter the homeless and show kindness to the downtrodden. Yet, American Evangelicals are supporter the man who puts kids in cages, and wants to destroy efforts to provide care for the poor by destroying Obamacare, rather than improving it.

Then there is the phrase that includes “walk humbly with God” and they support a man who has no humility, and is the essence of both pride, arrogance and the willingness to abuse others to his hearts content. And yes so called “evangelical christians” have no problem with any of that. In fact many of them go so far as to assert that “God put him in the White House”. I have news for them. Human stupidity and ignoring decency and any mode of kindness put the man in the White House. That was entire the fault of a sick side of humanity, not God.

But a few worry because he used the word “hell” or combined “God” and “damn” in the same phrase. Really, THAT’S all you people see?!!! How blind can you be?

He’s gone too far when he denies a human medical care and food! By doing so he is going against the Bible. He holds prayer groups and as you said uses the word damn with God not right. He was blessed to grow up wealthy so he has no conception by his own experience, to know what it is like to be disabled and need help. He’s never had to go hungry either so he cannot relate to that. I am very surprised 😳!!!God help him !!

Thought you might want to read trumps involvement in the bilderbetgs,which is never good for humanity. Bring in play eugenics, which our country seems to want for these immigrants!!! As does the NWO in the bilderberg’s the 1% or’s shameful I believe in God And I don’t see God smiling

I don't know if you both are the same person but in any case, i think his many offences include the health care issue.  As has been said, saying "I am a christian" doesn't mean one lives the applications of christianity anymore than sitting in a garage makes a person a car.

I can't read the Washington post article as I am not a member.  I will try to find out more by googling.

Healthcare is a touchy issue. But those that are in desperate need and really sick should not be denied. Socialism is not the answer to better health care. Look at Germany takes months and months to get surgeries are seen by a doctor as one example. And Medicare for all, well that’s just killing America .Everyone would need to pay 80% of their income in taxes to pay for it makes no sense

Sorry, I don't believe what you are telling me on this...at all.  80 percent of our income...no way.  Every single other "civilized country' has some form of Universal health Care so that people do not have to bankrupt themselves with illness.

In addition, just like employers get better rates by having a large group, the government with Universall healthcsre could get better rates, and the health costs is what is killing us.

It that is what you call socialism, then I am unabashed for some sort of such plan, socialism if you perfer. The fact is that our whole society is going to change if we are going to survive as a nation.  Our whole economy is set up for the rich to get richer, and the poor to pay for it, and that is NOT going to continue to be viable with automation getting more advanced year by year.

You are naïve about the real world. I wish you luck and a very long life

Hypocrisy in right-wing trump sheeples is nothing new.  Take the latest story making conspiracy theory headlines all over the place right now.  Even here on blogster the hypocrites are pointing fingers at the Clintons for Jeffrey Epstein's death. Never mind that the ONE person who stands to lose the most is their beloved dear leader who has had a lawsuit against him for raping a 14 year old more than once at one of Jeffrey Epstein's orgies.  Not one word mentioned about him!!  Yep, hypocrisy is definitely built into their genes!!  Sickos!!

Need to make a correction:  The ONE person who stood to lose the most from JE's testimony at trial is the potus so if anyone needs a conspiracy theory to justify the sudden death of JE, it would be the trumps.

Yeah but of course trumps minions are trying to spread the story that somehow it is Clinton....in his usual game of distraction and deflection.

As i told somebody else, the Cliintons have been investigated for the last 25-30 years almost non-stop by the Right...and nothing has ever been proven against them.  If Clinton were guilty of any of these horrible things they accuse them of...as much time as they have spend "investigating" them, I don't believe for one moment they would have unable to find the proof.

More likely, if there was any nefarious actions, it was on trump's part rather than Cliinton.  After all, Barr and the justice department is under trumps control. (well, expecially since Barr is a trumpite.

I will borrow money and bet it was the orange ass in the White House and his lackey billy barr who found a way to eliminate a very serious problem facing the potus if JE testified.

I would say it ix just as likely, if not more, that it wsx trump as opposed to whst some right wingers are saying..ie the Clintons.  Thst is their go to for everything and yet for all the accusations nothing has even panned out the way they see it.

let's put it this way, if the Clintons are able to "eliminate" people the way the crazy right wing lunatics accuse them of, trump would no longer be walking around.
