The Evangelical Mystery…

Can anyone help me understand what the Evangelicals value in the president?  I’ve never heard of him turning the other cheek; au contraire!

The Seven Deadly Sins are:

LUST,  GLUTTONY;  GREED,  SLOTH,  WRATH, ENVY AND PRIDE

I won’t insult the readers’ intelligence by listing examples of the president’s commission of these deadly sins.  I just wonder what the Evangelicals are telling themselves and their God about him.

About Nan Mykel

I used to think I would be a child prodigy, but then I got old. Formerly I had fantasies of rubbing elbows with cultural and academic leaders but that did not come to pass because I did not become a cultural or academic leader or any other kind of leader, for that matter. I am not even an "Alpha Dog," a term learned from a friend who had to become "Alpha Dog" in order to influence her own pet. (When gazes lock, she never looks away.) For years I expected to become a published author, but in passing I could not avoid the fact that I had little to contribute to the world's bulging dumpsters. I'm embarrassed to report that I also considered my primary process artistic productions powerful, rather than mildly neurotic. Which is not to say that I disrespect myself, only that I am beginning to doubt my potential for making a mark on the world. If I focus on strict self discipline I may be able to keep my garbage removed on a weekly basis, to keep the kitty box changed, the clothes cleaned, the dog watered, fed and walked, but that just catches me up to the starting mark again. When writing I physically grapple with words, wrestling them from their indifference into attempted chunks of awareness. I sit heavily on my chair; I breathe in artificially cooled air; my ear drums note the tap tap of the keyboard and the steady uninterrupted sound of the air conditioner, What is that sound? The roar of the ocean from 30 yards away...Inside, my thoughts are are balls in an electronic game machine, bouncing hither and yon from lever to lever. I am a little grim and intent until I recall a dream related by a black man in the prison where I once worked. He said that when he was a small boy, back home, he dreamed he was standing on his front porch pissing, and that he suddenly found himself pissing stars...

    Not to get into a political debate…
    I believe it’s his appointing of
    “Right-To-Life” judges…. and his “catering” to Israel. (IMHO)

  2. Perhaps it is that “He”
    Still Is the “Spitting Fire
    And Brimstone Image”
    Of the “Old Testament
    God” Trust No
    God No Bible
    No Human
    Without Love
    For Humor…
    But You
    Have to
    Admit
    Trump
    And the
    God of
    The Old
    Testament
    Is Literally
    Funny As Hell…
    But True Even JeSuS
    Is Reported to Love
    His Enemy Turn
    The Other Cheek
    Unless You
    Don’t Worship
    Him As God And
    He’LL Torture You
    Forever… Yes.. Sadly it
    Appears “Trumps”
    Gaslight the
    New Testament
    too… It Really Should
    Be Easy to See Why
    Evangelicals mostly
    Look to Him
    As their
    Old
    Messiah…

    Hilarious photo of Trump with the Bible, I guess Christians tend to be conservative and so they assume that he’s one of them. I think both political parties are corrupt, (the Republicans are obviously greedy but the Democrats are sneakier about it). I once saw a disheveled young woman who had missing teeth and tattoos on her face, proclaim how Trump was going to save the country. I thought to myself that he wouldn’t lift a finger to help her or anyone but himself but kept my mouth shut. People believe in hype no matter how ridiculous I suppose.
