Christian Conservatives Who Support Trump Cover Their Backsides

The BIG statement from religious conservatives released this week from a confab in Nashville was done to send this message: We support 100% our skirt chasing unfaithful President. But, we are 100% opposed to skirt chasing unfaithful men. 

The confab was attended by many preachers and Trump administration officials. They rolled out the same political”family and Bible” material they have been talking up for years. The Bible insists, they claimed, marriage was about only one man and one woman. They insisted the Bible condemned marriage between homosexual people which is found no where in the Bible.

  Some thought it peculiar the announcement about the conference’s conclusions were released when the county’s attention is focused on Houston. But, probably they thought it was successful. It separated themselves from the sinful life of the politician they are devoted to, Donald Trump.

I’m sure these religious leaders are perplexed by the circumstances they find themselves in. They want to think of themselves as holding the high moral ground. They adhere to a high set of moral standards but endorse a politician who lives lives the low life.

Conferences like this one are a part of the conservative Christian propaganda machine. While their old positions have been stated over and over again, they feel for some reason that if they are preceded by a “conference” and by a news release people will get the impression they are new and important.

They are not important. Conferences like this are held frequently and pronouncements follow. The culture moves on with missing a beat.

    Thats the only thing they are interested in, covering their a$$es so they can keep the money flowing in. Truth is not in their dictionary.

      On the contrary truth is very important to these and all others like them. So important that it has to be guarded carefully and kept to themselves, guarded if needed (even, sometimes when not needed) by a phalanx of lies.

    “They insisted the Bible condemned marriage between homosexual people which is found no where in the Bible.”
    Because it’s so radically un-natural that they’d have never considered “gay marriage” as a possibility.

    Society had to be brainwashed by LGBQTxyz Advocates for thousands of years (primarily the previous 50 years) before we’d allow something so crazy.

      I think you are getting gay marriage mixed up with inter racial marriage. That was a sin, as well, in many branches of Christianity going way back.Much of the faith specialize in sin. The most likely places to find condemnation of sin is in others the faithful don’t like. Sin in a President they do like is not condemned.

        “I think you are getting gay marriage mixed up with inter racial marriage.”

        Never mind interrracial. I remember when Catholic/Lutheran marriages were grounds for being disowned.

          A little posting sequence observed now and then can cause one to query whether the anti feeling is stronger for the Lutheran towards the Catholic or the Atheist. Or for the Catholic towards the Lutheran or the atheist.

          On the other hand, the anti-atheist bit is possibly the only thing that can bring them together. (Or maybe JWs or 7day bike-riders).

      Does anyone know the mess created by the visit of a president, or even a candidate. Back in 1980 I went to a mall, not knowing Reagan was campaigning there. Every freeway off ramp was closed. Cops and Secret Service all over the place.

        Airplanes cannot take off nor fly into the restricted zone. When Trump was on his long vacation in New Jersey there was an airplane repair place that almost went broke.

        Yes I’m well aware of the logistics.
        If a president doesn’t show up in certain parts of the country, people claim they’re ignored.

    Mr. Lindgren I agree with the majority of your points on Trump and how the Church in many cases compromises its integrity by not rebuking some of his actions. This is a product of greed and hypocrisy, both of which have infected many churches who now subscribe to a self-focused “prosperity” type philosophy where God through Trump can give them their American dream. I think it’s important to bring this stuff into the light and I applaud you for doing so.

    If these “groups” want a seat at the table, then the first item is THEY Start to pay all of their tax obligations. Primarily property taxes. Then deal with the integrity and credibility components.

    @ Topic; “Christian Conservatives” A more appropriate term is Radical Conservatives. Better yet, simply “Radicals”. 500 yr. ago they were called; “The Enthusiasts”, “The Schwarmeri” (swarm, as in bees), They too were politically active. Literally all are extreme pietists. They are also Calvinistic, (hence the political activism) or Armenian (not the country)

    God not condemning homosexuality in the bible, are you kidding me , its several places in God’s word and every time it calls it a sin which means it separates us from having a relationship with God and spending eternity with him. Doesn’t get any more plain than that.

    1. Mike 1:37 Thanks for commenting.
      Doesn’t get any more plain than that.

      If you read carefully the six “cobbler verses” you will see they are often about heterosexual men pretending to be women to humiliate some group. The group is sometimes a defeated foe. Sodom and Gomorrah is not about homosexuality. There were not cities made up entirely of homosexual men. Jesus did not claim the men of S & G were homosexual.

        Sir you need to stick to critiquing litterary writings you have no educated knowledge of the bible, it’s obvious.

        1. Mike 10:45 Sir you need to stick to critiquing litterary writings you have no educated knowledge of the bible, it’s obvious.

          I know just a few things about the Bible. We do not know who wrote it. We know it was written over a long period of time. We know no one who wrote it claimed to have known Jesus. We know the writing was aimed at local audiences of that time and each part had the goal of convincing those local audiences of some point of view. We know it was hand copied gazillions of times and observations of surviving copies show it was changed over time.

    Homosexuality is abhorrent to God( as well as all sin),,,,,,the great news is,,,,, He provided a way out of this problem!!!!! I agree,,,, He doesnt address homosexual marriage
