The worshipful infatuation that evangelicals have for Donald Trump has always been starkly hypocritical. Trump is indisputably the most flagrantly faithless person to ever occupy the White House. His ignorance of – and animosity toward – religion is evident every time he deigns to mention it. And he only mentions it when he has something personal to gain by doing so.
The record of Trump’s entire public life is antithetical to everything that the historical Jesus stands for. He and his Republican Party oppose healing the sick. They revile refugees (such as Jesus). He repeatedly engages in adultery. He lies pathologically. He has no empathy for the poor. He uses the Lord’s name in vain. And he has unrepentantly violated all of the seven deadly sins: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.
Trump has previously made staggeringly irreligious remarks. For instance, when asked if had ever asked God for forgiveness, he replied that he didn’t need to because he has never done anything wrong. “I don’t have to ask God for forgiveness,” he said. “Why do I have to repent? Why do I have to ask for forgiveness if you’re not making mistakes?”
That, of course, shows that Trump has a painfully misguided interpretation of the tenets of his own alleged Presbyterian faith, including “original sin,” wherein all are born with sin and require God’s forgiveness for salvation.
On this Easter Sunday, Trump demonstrated his holiday spirit by posting messages (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that are rife with rancor and venomous rage. He couldn’t even refrain from excreting his hateful bile for a single day to pay tribute to his alleged savior. So he tweeted…
“Happy Easter to all including the Radical Left Maniacs who are doing everything possible to destroy our Country. May they not succeed, but let them, nevertheless, be happy, healthy, wealthy, and well!”
Not satisfied with that maliciousness, he then tweeted…
“Happy Easter to failed gubernatorial candidate and racist Attorney General Letitia James. May she remain healthy despite the fact that she will continue to drive business out of New York while at the same time keeping crime, death, and destruction in New York!”
How reverential of the spirit of this day when other Christians are gathered in churches and homes celebrating the resurrection of their lord. What’s more, this is also Passover and Ramadan, but Trump didn’t bother to recognize the holy days of Jews and Muslims. Which, given how he recognized the Christians, is a blessing.
Instead, Trump lashed out at the tens of millions of Americans who hold different political opinions than he does, calling them all “maniacs.” And he maligned the Black Attorney General of New York (whom he desperately fears) as a racist. And he disparages everyone who disagrees with him as wanting to “destroy” the country.
This, of course, is not the first time that Trump has denigrated his alleged faith on Easter in order to insult his enemies (whom Jesus called upon to love). Last year Trump issued a repugnant Easter message that venerated his “Big Lie” about the 2020 election, saying that…
“They rigged and stole our 2020 Presidential Election, which we won by a landslide, and then, on top of that, boycott and scare companies into submission. Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our Country if we let them. We will not become a Socialist Nation. Happy Easter!”
Trump was triggered by the fact that private companies didn’t want to be associated with the blatant voter suppression laws that were implemented in Georgia. So in his typical totalitarian, anti-free market fashion, he ordered his cult followers to boycott them – in honor of Easter.
Trump’s Christian followers really need to explain how they can support him given his past and current behavior and blatant blasphemy. They need to, but they won’t. Because they are the sort of Christians who populated the Den of Iniquity, and who currently reside in the House of Hypocrisy. In their delusions Trump is honest, loving, humble, pious, and virtuous. You know, like a Messiah.
