Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 16, 2017

Susan Wright, Politico: Back during the primary, and even in the run up to the election, I took issue with faith leaders who endorsed Donald Trump. I felt they were ignoring the call to stand on godly principles, in favor of their fearful, worldly flesh. I still believe that. Christians had an opportunity to put not only an experienced leader in the White House, but a godly one, as well. There were so many godly men to choose from, who were also well-versed on policy. This was a missed opportunity that may have far reaching effects that we don't even see, yet.

With that in mind, you'll have to forgive me if I take an "I told you so" attitude with Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, and others who tossed their support to Trump during the election, who are aghast at what is going on within Trump's administration today.

Specifically, Trump's decision to keep in place an Obama-era LGBT workplace protection executive order, which would exclude Christian businesses from participating in government contracts, of any kind.

Also, Trump's decision to keep in place an Obama international envoy, tasked with promoting LGBTI acceptance around the world, as part of American foreign policy.

It's all part of the plan of the Religious Right to use Trump as a Trojan Horse. They want him to be impeached so Pence can usher in a new Golden Age of Jesus.

The charlatans are these "faith" leaders. Christ would consider them to be Pharisees.

Religious hypocrisy was numero uno on Christ's kick ass list.

23 Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, 2 saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. 3 Therefore whatever they tell you to observe,[a] that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do.

4 For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do to be seen by men.

13 "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.[c]

15 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

16 "Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.' 17 Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies[d] the gold?

23 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!

27 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. 28 Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.


And nothing has changed for the better, the religious hypocrites have only gotten worse.

(full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness.... is the sanitized version of what he said about them}

Hey, the christian bible says some pretty bad things about gays (and shellfish, but whatever).

So when you wake up and realize that the bad stuff about gays is bad, maybe you should also ditch the rest of it too.

Religion was created to control people. There isn't really a god.
