Happy Easter: Say, Were Trump Voters Tricked By Satan Or Something?

Deep, important thoughts from the Huffington Post as they practice being part of The Resistance, using the occasion of Easter to blast not just Mr. Trump, but the people who voted for him, allowing Social Studies educator, Alan Singer, to go hog wild (hogs are bad for global warming, of course)

“Easter Sermon”: Were Trump Voters Tricked by Satan?

According to Election Day exit polls, 81% of white evangelical Protestants and 60% of whites that identify as Roman Catholic voted for Donald Trump. This “Easter Sermon” quotes Scripture and addresses what I believe are inconsistencies between Christian values and the way many White Christians voted in the last election. People who follow my blog know I am not a believer, but I am a scholar familiar with the Bible. Read what I have to say and consider the message. No insult to believers is intended.

So, an atheist is going to explain scripture?

Matthew 4:1 tells us that after he was baptized Jesus went into the wilderness where he fasted for forty day and forty nights and was tempted by Satan. Matthew tells us that Jesus was strong and stood up to the devil’s challenges. But we are mere men and women, and the forty days and forty nights in the wilderness, forty days and forty nights of trials and tribulations, unemployment, bad employment, low wages, runaway jobs, hungry children, mortgage payments, and little hope for the future, weakened our bodies and souls, and we were tempted, and we listened to Satan. Satan promised things that never were and never can be, and too many of us, weakened, were willing to believe. And we were tricked. And Satan’s agents rose to the seat of power. And the forty days and the forty nights will expand and grow darker and there will be a pale over this land and every land.

In Galilee Jesus preached that blessed are the poor, the meek who shall inherit the earth; they that hunger and thirst after righteousness: the merciful; the pure in heart; the peacemakers; and they that have been persecuted for they are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. The candidate many White Christians voted for does not express these values. Donald Trump does not live these values.

Donald Trump ignores the poor, scorns the meek, deports the hungry and thirsty, bans the persecuted, has never been pure in heart, and threatens war. He is an extremely wealthy man with a history of self-promotion and cheating and mistreating others – certainly not the salt of the earth or the light of the world.

In case Mr. Singer forgets, Hillary Clinton is pretty darned rich, too. She wholeheartedly supports abortion on demand with no restrictions. She ignored the plight of people in the Middle East when they attempted to rise up in the Arab Spring, and, particularly, those in Iran with the Green Uprising. She called Bashar Assad a reformer. Where’s that led Syria? She helped create the conditions which led to the murders of four Americans in Benghazi, and has turned Libya into a hellhole of radical Islamists. She made plenty of money off the backs of the poor in Haiti, leaving them to suffer. She supports gay marriage, not exactly Bible friendly. This line of thought could continue for quite some time, but, of course, let’s remember that Hillary didn’t get the religious vote except for certain groups. This all matters little to Lefties, because the idea is to assault Trump and his supporters. Trump may not be the greatest, but, he’s better than Hillary.

Matthew 21:12 tells us that Jesus entered into the “temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves; and he saith unto them, It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer: but ye make it a den of robbers.”

This is about telling us that the Trump admin is a den of robbers, really rich ones, as Mr. Singer continues on. Of course, this sorta misses the mark, since government is not a house of prayer.

The Bible says “And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.” But the new Pontius Pilate and Satan’s agents want to end public support for health care.

So, I guess Trump is Pontius Pilate. Good grief.

In the Old Testament Book of Exodus, Pharaoh followed Satan and refused to obey the God of Moses. Plagues befell the land of Egypt. Blood, Frogs, Vermin, Wild Animals, Pestilence, Boils, Hail, Locust, Darkness, and Death of Egypt’s first-born sons. Today we face new plagues but they are equally terrifying. Climate change, raising oceans, powerful storms, drought, famine, nuclear war. The human race is at risk if righteous people follow Donald Trump.

    The “religion” of the new conservative movement is an amalgam of christian fundamentalism, John Birch Society xenophobia and white nationalism. White protestants voted for trump because he promised to smite the non-white and the non-christian and re-elevate rural white christians to their rightful privilege in America.

    My goodness Jeff, I voted for him as he was the only one who could defeat the rigged election of Hillary and that he has enough intelligence to get us out of the economic, political disaster that was created by Obama. In 8 weeks, Trump has done more than Obama in 8 years and is on track to be one of the best presidents we have had. I truly am sorry that you can’t see that, but we have learned there is a considerable amount you don’ know or understand. I have not heard of the John Birch Society in decades and don’t see any conservatives who make decisions based on race or any other aspect other than pragmatic views of economy, following the law, and working to peace. As well as desiring to keep more of their own money and not be burdened by senseless regulations dictated from our corrupt national government. But, your views are interesting as they are clearly bigoted and prejudicial and thus you seem blinded to fact.

      dave,

      People often lie to themselves to support their inherent biases.

      What is the most fantastic thing that trump has accomplished so far? “Better and less expensive healthcare”? Labeling China a currency manipulator? Stopping jobs going overseas? Keeping the US out of foreign entanglements? Banning Muslims? Bringing back coal? Creating jobs? Getting rid of Janet Yellen? Making Mexico build us a wall? Renegotiating NAFTA?

      The fact is, whites voted for trump not for his policy acumen, but because he could “give it to” elites, the free press, scientists, professors, foreigners, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTs, libs and Dems. The added bonus is that he’s rewarded himself, his family and their crony capitalist buddies.

      trump will most certainly be one of the worst presidents in history.

      To make a big difference in your income tax burden we need to slash defense spending or healthcare spending. trump recently suggested we eliminate payroll taxes and shift this into general revenues, which would increase your income tax burden (until the Repubs zero out SS spending).

        That is really funny, Jeff. You do realize that you have lost any validity on this site and that you show signs of illness, in the past, you have shown projection and transference, both exhibited here. The world has judged and found that Obama is the worst leader (choke) that we have ever had. Do you actually pay attention to real news? It is not obvious.

    Don’t you just love it when libs get all self-righteous when attempting to explain Christianity?
