Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 09, 2019

President Trump traveled to Alabama Friday to comfort those who had been devastated by the tornado outbreak last weekend that killed 23 people. During the trip, the president raised eyebrows for what appeared to be an unusual gesture as he signed some Bibles. He didn't do this out of the blue though. It seems a 12-year-old boy got the ball rolling when he handed Trump his Bible and asked him to sign it at a Southern Baptist church in Opelika.

Do none of you righties see how indicative of poor mental health this is? How narcissistic does one have to be to sign a Bible?

It's Idolatry JPW.

At this point it's clear Trump is being treated either as a God or as a spokesman of God by his fanatical followers.

It seems most of them don't know their own theology, for what it is.

Yes, should take heed of this line from the item referenced by JPW above:

"The Antichrist will be a political leader, described in the Book of Revelation as "the Beast." He will poison the minds of his followers with half-truths, false love, and, above all else, sheer charisma."

I was worried for a moment while reading your description of the antichrist.

Then I read, "He will poison the minds of his followers with half-truths"

"Half-truths" actually requires there to be some truth to it.

Trump is a bold faced liar, and proud of his ignorance.

There have been many claims (by evangelicals) God Chose Trump.

Possibly to end the American empire.

He's doing a great job of it.

Getting a bestseller's author's autograph is pretty common, even in Alabama. What's wrong with you people!

What devoted Christian wouldn't want a man who routinely commits the Seven Deadly Sins to autograph their Bible:

Lust
Gluttony
Greed
Sloth
Wrath
Envy
Pride

You're #10 would be funny if it wasn't so true, not to mention the glaring hypocrisy of Trump's evangelical (used loosely) followers.

Every Christian I know on a Christian website I frequent think it is weird to horrendous, NONE are justifying it.

Once you walk with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, it's honestly hard to be impressed by celebrity.

Is there anything in the Bible about an orange, child-raping land whale who wants to bone his daughter?

Yeah, but you have to look in the New 'Murican! Chreestian version.

Trump Signed Bibles. But It Isn't As Strange As You Might Think

No, it's definitely as strange as i think.

With our flag-hugging and Bible-signing POTUS, looks like we're almost there:

"When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross." Sinclair Lewis

#19 I was thinking of that quote as I saw Trump dry-humping Old Glory.

For all the unchristian Republicans talk about Trump being a modern day Cyrus I don't recall the Bible saying (and I could be wrong) that Cyrus ever did anything offensive.

#21 | Posted by Tor at 2019-03-10 03:57 PM | Reply

Cyrus was the king that destroyed Babylon which inadvertently freed the captive Jews who then returned to Jerusalem. What the evangelicals are basically implying is that Trump is like Cyrus, as a result of his actions, an Whiter and more Christian America will arise.

Trump will soon sign an executive order allowing him to sign his name on all original extant copies of the DOI above that of John Hancock and on the Constitution above that of George Washington's
