Trump Goes Christian For Lent

Preident Trump said this on Ash Wednesday:

Melania and I wish everyone observing Ash Wednesday a peaceful and prayerful day.
For Catholics and many other Christians, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season that concludes with the joyful celebration of Easter Sunday. Today, millions of Christians will be marked on their foreheads with the sign of the cross. The imposition of ashes is an invitation to spend time during Lent fasting, praying, and engaging in acts of charity. This powerful and sacred tradition reminds us of our shared mortality, Christ’s saving love, and the need to repent and accept the Gospel more fully.
We join in prayer with everyone observing this holy day and wish you a prayerful Lenten journey. May you grow closer to God in your faith during this blessed season.

Simple, powerful and true. Well done, White House Chaplains. But hey, he said it. Then there's the magical, anointed Obama. Remember him? Here's what he had to say:

Today, Michelle and I join our fellow Christians across the country and around the world in marking Ash Wednesday.
Lent is a season of sacrifice and preparation, repentance and renewal. Through reflection on the teachings that guide us, we reaffirm our commitment to God and one another -- and we remember those who are suffering, including those persecuted for their faith.

Through reflection on the teachings that guide us. What would those be, you mountebank, the Koran? And note, not a single reference to Christ or the Cross. Christians made it in, but only just.

Christians, you have a choice. Vote for the man who defends your faith or the Party that hates and denies it to the point of killing babies at birth, all in the name of freedom. The same Party, you may recall, which took the Little Sisters of the Poor to court for not providing abortifacients.

Wake up,

Excellent observation and contrast.
It's going to Facebook.

Ed Bonderenka said...

OK, Facebook says I can't post it as your content is "abusive".
Graybeard and I have had this happen to us.


Same for us Jews.

Vote for the man who has done more for Israel - our spiritual homeland - than, well, anyone... or vote for the party (regardless of the candidate) that wants to see it split, weakened, and increasingly cleaves to the anti-Semites to curry the Islamic vote?

And please forgive me, but...

At the reception for Black History Month a darling almost 90 yo lady got up to speak. She finished by thanking Trump for all he has done for everyone and finished by saying, "I don't like abortion, and neither does he (Trump)

And an articulate 15 yo was presented with a special flag and he also thanked (racist) Trump.

The only people who have not figured it out yet have their intellects so darkened with sin and are in such sway to the devil that they are incapable of seeing truth anymore. I doubt the hard core haters will change.


LL said...

Progs don't like it that President Trump is Christian.

They say that Christians are racist.

And that black Christians are race traitors.

Ed, glad you liked the reflection, but Facebook (and Insta) won't have it because this inconsequential kebob stand on the information superhighway counts as "hate speech."

So, if you want to link do it in English with a "dot com" or simply reference. But thanks again for the plaudit.

LSP said...

RPJ, no need to apologize, link away, we must make "common cause."

Speaking of which, why does evil so hate God's people? Because it wants to destroy all that's good, of course.

That in mind, I stand for Israel and Christendom, what's left of it, against the satanic Jihad and its billionaire socialist allies.

LSP said...

The cards are pretty much on the table, Adrienne. On the one hand we have a country with borders, Christianity, no killing babies after they're born, men are men and women are women. On the other, we've got this deranged anti-reality where no borders makes us more of a country, the more tax you pay the richer you are, biology has nothing to do with gender, which is why we want government funding to change our biology. We love women's rights and homosexuals which is why we support Sharia. And on.

They're f*cking insane.

Adrienne, Satan is a nihilst.

LSP said...

LL, they say that and their Father, the Devil, is the Father of Lies.

Don't Fear The Reaper.

Adrienne said...

"Satan is a nihilst"

Never thought of it that way, but you're right.


LSP: "anti-reality".

That's... brilliant. That's a brilliant term. Perfectly captures it. I don't get it either.

If you'll forgive me (I still think this is one of my best!):

Civilizational Collapse and the Brain

I ask pro-Islam gay people "Do you not understand that under Sharia law, your BEST HOPE is a quick death"? They won't believe it.

I ask women "Do you not understand that under Sharia law, your BEST HOPE is to be a sperm receptacle and baby factory"? They won't believe it.

I ask my fellow Jews, the pro-migrant ones "Do you not understand that under Sharia law we are - at best - inferior dhimmis and subject to Islamic whims and that the Koran states with no uncertainty that we are the worst of peoples and to be slaughtered to a man before the Islamic paradise can arrive"? They won't believe it.

I ask Socialists "Cuba, ruined. Venezuela, ruined. Brazil, ruined. The USSR was a Potemkin village. Cambodia, ruined. Over 100 million civilians murdered." And so on. And they answer with stars in their eyes "Sweden... Denmark..."

As a former Marine friend opined, we're due for a reset. Alas that I live to see it start, and that my children must endure it too. On the plus side, I'm better prepped than 90% of the sheeple out there... so in that respect my kids are lucky.


Jews were the first (I think) religion to say there is ONE who is above all ***AND*** that a King/Pharaoh (etc.) is not divine but subject to His laws too. We took the royalty down to the status of man. And for that we've never been forgiven... not just by men, but by the Enemy who used that VANITY-driven flaw in human nature to such good effect.

LSP said...

RPJ -- thanks for the links and glad you liked "anti-reality."

God will not be thwarted by these satanists.
