Trump’s Blasphemous Mouth Finally Irking Some Jesus People

In further evidence that I’m a better Christian than Donald Trump, Il Duce takes the Christian deity’s name in vain far more frequently in his public statements than I do, much to the annoyance of evangelicals:

Paul Hardesty didn’t pay much attention to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., last month until a third concerned constituent rang his cell phone.

The residents of Hardesty’s district — he’s a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator — were calling to complain that Trump was “using the Lord’s name in vain,” as Hardesty recounted.

…Trump crowing, “they’ll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don’t support me, you’re going to be so goddamn poor.”

…Trump’s indelicate language has frustrated religious fans who have otherwise been true blue supporters of his agenda. They agree with his social policies, praise his appointment of conservative judges and extol his commitment to Israel — often tolerating Trump’s character flaws for the continued advancement of all three. But when it comes to “using the Lord’s name in vain,” as Hardesty put it, “the president’s evangelical base might be far less forgiving.”

“Carelessly invoking the Lord’s name in a fit of anger is one thing,” said one of the pro-Trump pastors, quickly adding that he would not encourage such behavior. “But,” he continued, “repeatedly doing it for shock value … that does raise questions about the president’s respect for people of faith” [Gabby Orr, “‘Using the Lord’s Name in Vain’: Evangelicals Chafe at Trump’s Blasphemy,” Politico, 2019.08.12].

There’s a lot more un-Christian behavior coming from this occupant of the White House than the thoughtless words coming out of his mouth. But golly-gee-whillikers—if GD-bombs are what it takes to bring voters of faith back to their senses, clean language is one of the easiest tactics Democrats can use to distinguish themselves from the Curser-in-Chief on the stump.

    Billy Graham and Paul Harvey both stuck with Nixon until they, gasp! learned he said naughty words in the White House.

    Jesus H. Christ!!!! Get a goddam grip.

    Bible thumpers are okay though with disparaging remarks about their womenfolk’s anatomy and the grabbing of it by stranger’s.

    Evangelicals are locked down because they know this President will nominate anti-Roe judges for the Supreme Court. NO OTHER ISSUE MATTERS. The abhorrent way he tramples on other issues and tenants of faith take a backseat to that overwhelming issue.

    Really that is the Trump strategy: he doesn’t have to be everything to everyone; he just needs to be ONE thing to enough people. I would say it is the same with the farming community: he is destroying that economy but they stay with him because he is getting tough with China and that issue alone will keep his support afloat as farmers watch their lives unravel under his policies.

    Regarding China and business with trump.

    “Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan on Sunday had to explain why sweeping immigration raids haven’t affected President Donald Trump’s companies despite multiple reports of those companies hiring undocumented immigrants.

    The Washington Post reported on Friday that even as Trump cracks down on immigration through harsh measures, Trump Organization itself currently has undocumented immigrants working on its construction sites.

    CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper pointed out to Morgan that despite immigration agencies’ major increases in raids, including the ones in Mississippi last week that led to a record 680 arrests, there’ve been “zero raids” at Trump’s businesses.”

    See, just blasphemy, business as usual for trump to line his pockets. Thanks to dummied up farmers and Bible thumpers. Putin loves ye.

    “Jesus people” How is that not offensive? Come on Cory.

  7. Certain Inflatable Recreational Devices 2019-08-12 12:39

    Indeed, Jesus people ARE offensive to me.

  8. David Newquist 2019-08-12 12:46

    I don’t think any person who has ever trod the earth has called forth the name of Jesus Christ! as Trump has. As he says 10 or 12 times a day, never in the history of the world.

    When you have such a limited vocabulary, you go with what you know, BIGLY!

    It says a lot for those particular Jesus people that of all Bilious Blasphemer’s sinful behavior, they were just fine till he said “goddamn.” They were okay with the racism, misogyny, lying, graft, kidnapping children, adultery, tearing families apart, subverting justice, running concentration camps and on and on and on.

    Those who were okay with that horror show except for “goddamn,” are not Jesus people, nor are they Christians. They are willing to exploit Christianity for their own ends, just as Bilious Blasphemer is. Damn them all to eternal, deeply felt shame.

    BTW, at their triennial assembly, the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) voted overwhelmingly to become a Sanctuary Church throughout the denomination.

    That means they are committed to doing whatever they can within the law to aid immigrants and asylum seekers. Each church will do what they can using their facilities and financial abilities. They will work with LIRS, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, and other agencies, local and nationwide, to aid and assist.

    The ELCA knows that their faith is based on wanderers like the Hebrews fleeing Pharaoh’s armies in Egypt and Joseph and Mary fleeing Israel when Herod was killing baby boys.

    Hmmm, will this be enough for our pious Gov. Noem to finally jump off of the Trump Train?

  15. Moses6 2019-08-12 16:45

    Debbo lutherans believe in faith alone, through grace alone through salvation alone ElCA, and every one welcome at the communion table, regardless of denomination. Saved by grace through faith in christ. Now call me a hypocrite.

  16. jerry 2019-08-12 16:48

    GNoem is to much of a fake Jesus Freak to let a little trump blasphemy change her talking in tongue.

  17. Kal Lis 2019-08-12 17:46

    I am of an age that allows me to remember when Christians didn’t take umbrage at being called Jesus people.

  18. John 2019-08-12 19:20

    HaHaHa. Hypocrites. How many faux christianistias repeatedly say, “Muslim people”, or worse.

  19. grudznick 2019-08-12 20:29

    As my good friend Bob and I have discussed often and sometimes animatedly, overgodders and Jesus people are offensive to us.

    The evangelicals have grave concerns about the naughty words Trump uses when they should worry about the 12,019 lies he has told since being in office.
    We are not talking about little white lies, fibs, or misrepresentations, we are talking about blatant lies that his base eats up.
    Over the weekend one of these wealthy evangelical preachers said that God has given Trump permission to start a nuclear war if he needs to.

  21. JW 2019-08-13 08:50

    Come on Mr. Pay; we don’t have to emulate the miserable wretch in the White House to make a point.

  22. Debbo 2019-08-13 08:58

    I know Moses6. Why would I call you a hypocrite?

  23. Debbo 2019-08-13 20:26

    “Federal prosecutors in New York are pursuing a parallel investigation into whether any of his associates will face charges for assisting him in what authorities say was his rampant sexual abuse of girls as young as 14.

    “According to police reports, FBI records and court documents, Epstein had a team of recruiters and other assistants who knew of his penchant for girls and lined up victims for him.”

    New York has the USA’s back in dealing with Plump Pervert, his pal Epstein and like sewage sludge.

    Excellent link Mike. It reveals yet another reason to get Rancid Racist out of there and into a white jacket with very long sleeves while he rests in a room with soft, puffy walls and floor. Know what I’m saying? 🤨🤨🤨

    Another Marine is killed in Iraq, so we still have that “Mission Accomplished” fiasco that we’re dealing with.

    “The Department of Defense announced the death of a Marine who was supporting Operation Inherent Resolve. Gunnery Sergeant Scott A. Koppenhafer, 35, of Mancos, Colorado, died August 10, 2019, in Iraq, suffering fatal wounds while supporting Iraqi Security Forces. This incident is under investigation. Koppenhafer was assigned to the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion, Marine Forces Special Operations Command, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. ~ DoD News Release”

    2001-2019, the blood and treasure is still consumed by the War Pigs, we ain’t learned nothin yet.
