‘Using the Lord’s name in vain’: Evangelicals chafe at Trump’s blasphemy

Bad Boy! Bad Donny!

Quote:
The issue has recently hit a nerve among those who have become some of the president’s most reliable supporters: white evangelicals — who constitute much of Hardesty’s district. The group was key to Trump’s 2016 win, helping bolster his standing in critical swing states, and Trump likely needs to maintain that support if he wants to win a second term. But some are growing fatigued with the irreverent language that is often spewed at Trump’s rallies and official events.

“I’ve had people come to me and say, ‘You know I voted for [Trump], but if he doesn’t tone down the rhetoric, I might just stay home this time,’” Hardesty said in an interview, adding that he has yet to hear back from anyone inside the White House after urging the president in a formal letter to “reflect on your comments and never utter those words again.”

The evangelicals’ gripe against Trump is a valid one. The only pushback I would give is that they should have known about his potty mouth before 2016. I sure did.

Moreover, as an evangelical, I would argue that Trump’s foul language is probably the least of his problems.

They will still vote for him and so will you.

No blacks will buy that cap.  Look at the bill! It's all curved like normal people wear. The bill of the hat is supposed to be flat with a shiny goofy looking sticker in the middle of it.

No self respecting thug would be without his sticker!

The only perfect man was hung on a cross.  If there was a God fearing man in office you would be just as nasty.  This is a game you folks play and God has no place in your heart.  Under Obama you hated people of faith, now, all of the sudden you have found God?  Not buying it for one second.

You want to win our votes?  Elect a Dam who is against Socialism, willing to cut departments, reduce spending, enforce our Constitution, leave healthcare alone...  Just a few suggestions and you will get my vote.  Our votes are not based solely on moral character.  I will never elect a moral socialist (oxymoron).

No.. It's not about changing the way one feels about Faith .. people crippled by religious zealotry need our help in overcoming unwanted Faith .. ..  It's to show you that you're hypocrites...that we've known you were hypocrites the kind that will gladly make a deal with Satan if you think it will forward your Romanized Christian agenda.  You especially never let us down ..

You need help my friend.  You are not someone who I would look to as an advocate for atheism.  Remember the Bible verse to remove the plank from your own eye?  Your anger is on display on a regular basis as well as your own hatred and lack of tolerance.  I mean if you are going to preach to me about your faith, understand that you are not a very good ambassador for your faith of secularism.  Just sayin.   Wink  Judging someone on their political belief is not really a good measuring tool.

That's good..  in that I don't advocate for atheism ..

No it isn't.  I'm not angry..  Anger isn't a prerequisite for pointing out religious nonsense.  Plus.. I'm sure you know that intolerance should never be tolerated.

I do not preach about Faith because I don't preach about something I do not have.  Don't you remember... Atheism is a religion like not collecting stamps is a hobby..

Atheism is a religion and your faith is that accidents created life.

That's absolute bullshit. .. . Religious folk love to misrepresent what a religion is to make it seem as though Atheism is.  Doing so makes them feel better about themselves somehow.. 

Theism is a belief in Gods .. Religion requires a deity.  Atheism is the lack of belief in gods. There is no god.

Religion requires a code of doctrine..   Atheism has no code of doctrine.

Religion has ordained ministers.  Atheism has no ministers of any kind.

There is no Atheist literature.. no rituals  .. no places of worship .. .

It takes the unequaled capacity for self-delusion of religious extremists to imagine Atheism to be a religion.



Will you continue to lie about this.. Yes..  Will I continue to mock you about your lying. ..  You bet'cha ..
