Im not religious, but am spiritual. I have pondered some on this, and the religious right crackpots REALLY just want the DEVIL out of our society..ie evil.

I believe in what people believe in, their FAITH more than anything. I dont belive in God per se, and reject hell and the devil. BUT..the faithful among the crackpots DO believe in the devil, and they just dont realize THEY are the ones in the Devils grip. Murder, mysogyny, racists, war mongers..with GOD telling them to do this? according to what they believe, its " the devil made me do it"
So it begins.

ABSOLUTELY. I know what I was taught in sunday school. this sure isnt it. by the way, i wont go to my old church anymore, they took a sharp right after they went " independant". That means the members of the board control the message, and it in reality has not a lot to do with religion.

These people don’t represent a religion as much as they represent a power structure that they don’t want to give up.

nctarheel: 

 

If opinions of these Evangelical Leaders are any indication, then only one thing can be said about CHRISTIANITY.................

 

 

It's not fair to Christianity to call these people Christians. They use the name for their own ends, but their words and deeds show the lie. What they are is the worst kind of opportunists and frauds using religion as cover.

   As the so-called religious leaders of the evangelicals sell out their constituents and the ignoble donald voters don't talk back, it demostrates that they are incapable of rational thought, they are mere sheep / followers of any fool - who wants their money.    

 

    Those leaders are just like Donald - follow the money.    These are the same men  who abuse women as good for them.   They are people without morals.

couldn't agree more with the post. The president (I can't say 'my') is as lower than the skid row man.

IT IS ROTTING FROM WITHIN.

 

I was thinking about this the other day, about how the deal with the devil aways taints everyone that goes along with it.

 

Basically how Christians have to throw Christ under the bus to be Republicans.

I am hesitant normally to comment on anyone else's religious behavior unless it impacts me including influencing public policy.  But Trump is different because of his pathological lying about his religiousity right from the start.  He has stated in the campaign  his views stem from his "deep Christianity."  This is simply such a palpable lie that it is staggering and equally loathsome, but not surprising, is the perfect willingness of his rabid supporters to either ignore the lie, justify it, or find an excuse for it.   

I don't think any politician need to discuss his religion but if one does one should be totally honest and this goes for politicians in both parties and of all philosophies.  I live in NYC 2 miles from Trump's home and all us here know all about him for decades.  He has never gone to church except for weddings, funerals, baptisms.  He doesn't go now.  He does not read the Bible and has acknowledged that he has never asked God or any human for forgiveness for anything...because he's never been wrong.  No person of religion..any faith..can make that last statement.

He says he is a "Presbyterian" but in the campaign said he attended a Reform Church...except the minister of that church (Marble Collegiate) said he'd never, ever seen him there.  His trophy wife is supposedly a Catholic.  They however married in an Episcopal Church.  The FACT is neither he nor his wife have any interest in religion, are wholly secular and impious, and he uses religion to further bamboozle his idiotic and fanatical supporters  who themselves are amongst the biggest hypocrites  in the country.

I don't care about anyone else's religiosity but I care a lot about their lies, their hypocrisy and especially their personal behavior which is the antithesis of all 3 major faiths in this country.

Remember Popes having mistresses and illegitimate children between the 500s and the 1500s in spite of the fact that they were supposed to be celibate?

 

Remember the selling of dispensations?

 

Remember the massive attempts to cover up priests sexually abusing children?

 

There has been rot within organized religion ever since it became organized religion.

 

Christianity is not alone - all organized religions suffer from the dishonesty of their religious leaders - it's a basic human failing that shows no signs of going away...

 

The modern day charlatans mentioned by nctarheel are nothing new - rather they are keeping up christianity's 1500 year long tradition of hypocritical religious leaders...

 

 

Have pity for Melania - she hasn't yet got rid of that ugly fat.
