an Atheist Advisory Board?
You know that Trump has an Evangelical Advisory Board, right? Why, I don’t know. Is there a Catholic Advisory Board, a Jewish Advisory Board, a Methodist Advisory Board? How about an Atheist Advisory Board? Wait! Here's one, a Muslim Advisory Board...? No, there’s not.
Why do Evangelicals think they are the “true” religion of this country? We’ll discuss that at a later time. My point is, after Trump’s disgusting and racist comments after the Charlottesville rally and protest, where an innocent young woman, practicing her rights as an American citizen, was murdered by a Nazi. That only one member of this holier than thou committee had the nerve to speak out against Trump’s racist tirade, and he did so by resigning. Thank you pastor A.R. Bernard. You were the only one to act as a Christian.
Doesn’t the Bible teach to love, and to fight hate? The Nazis, the White Nationalists, the KKK, they are hate groups. That the rest of these money sucking hypocrites could not stand up to Trumps racist remarks only proves they are not true Christians. They take money from their parishioners with the false promise that the more they donate, the better chance that they, the parishioners, will have at eternal salvation and riches. And these “ministers” do this with no regard of how little their flock has and needs.
They are the haters, they hate gays, transgender, atheists, Catholics, Jews, hey, wait a minute! They must be White Nationalists too! Well, that all makes sense now.

The rich get richer. The poor get poorer.
So why do the Evangelical think they are the "true" religion of this country?
Because the GOP want them to be. The GOP has been backed, financially by the moral majority, who we now know as the Evangelical, for decades now. Ever since Jerry Falwell during the Reagan years. Jerry Falwell is in the same classification as Roger Ayres in my book. Both sought to inflict the conservative ideals on the public while spewing hate for those that did not agree with them, politically or morally. Trump won thanks to an Evangelical push from these church leaders to their predominantly white, Protestant congregations. In the way they preach and by who they support politically, these church leaders teach their congregations to hate anything "different" than them. The church are the originators of "fear mongering". Back some 2,000 ago years when the Christians became the Catholic church, they converted and gained their membership through fear. Having that fear of Heaven or Hell hanging over your head sure goes a long way. And they still use it today, the Evangelicals are perfecting it. Taking the Bible at it's literal word, that's brainwashing. Okay, explain how one male, one female start humankind. How did their children procreate? With each other I would assume. Maybe that's why mankind is so fucked up in the head, that would have been a messy gene pool, chromosomes just flying all over the place.
This picture just makes my skin crawl. All the hate and hypocrisy gathered in one room.
And my favorite, Noah's Ark. How did he manage to gather up two of every creature on earth? Yeah, that happened. The verses in the book of Leviticus about "man laying with man" blah, blah, other verses in that book also state you should not eat shellfish, I'm hell bound! Or you are not to wear two different fabrics together, Hell bound again! And you know I'm Hell bound about that man laying with man thing. People, the Bible is a book of parables not to be taken literally, but to be used as a learning or teaching tool. They are fables. But the lambs being lead to slaughter love these fables, and stand by them with all the conviction of Moses parting the Red Sea!
Speaking of bigots,
we were speaking of bigots weren't we?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that federal civil rights law does not protect transgender people from discrimination in the workplace, reversing an Obama administration policy issued nearly three years ago.
“Today’s despicable action from the Trump-Pence administration is unprecedented and allows for Kim Davis-style discrimination and beyond all throughout this country,” said JoDee Winterhof, senior vice president for policy and political affairs at the Human Rights Campaign.
We all remember the county clerk in Kentucky who made headlines in 2015 for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after the Supreme Court legalized it nationwide.
Here's our little charmer, Kim Davis. With Evangelical Christian Minister, former Governor of Arkansas and most notably the father of Sarah Huckabee-Sanders.
Speaking of Kim Davis, remember when Trump and all the right wing zealots said that the NFL players taking a knee, should do it on their own time? Not on the job? Well, wasn't our little honky tonk woman Kim Davis protesting on the job? And she was applauded by all the folks that complained about the NFL players. Oh, that's right, she's white and a devout Christian. It's OK then.
See the hypocrisy here? That is the disgrace that is the Evangelical.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
What happens next, your Jewish mailman doesn't have to deliver your Christmas cards? The first amendment was supposed to protect us from an "establishment of religion".
Evangelical Republican Senator from Texas Ted Cruz with Kim Davis. Davis' first three marriages ended in divorce in 1994, 2006, and 2008; she then remarried her second husband in 2009. I think that's her third husband, Pa Kettle, pictured. The Evangelical Right are OK with Miss Davis protesting on the job.
It seems to me that since Trump only has an Evangelical Board of Advisors, he must be taking their advice on making these decisions*. Really he's indebted to them for their monetary contributions and their spreading their politic views through their massive congregations. Never the less...
With no other "religious" or non-religious advisory board, it seems he is running things under an establishment of religion. Can this be fought constitutionally? I don't know, I'm not a constitutional lawyer, as President Obama is. What knowledge of law, or for that matter what knowledge of anything does Trump have? None, his daddy bought his way through college and his way out of the Viet Nam war, so he's stupid and a coward. So...back to what I was talking about. Can this be fought? I hope so. We do not need any one to force their religion or beliefs down our throats. Over my dead body. This totally contradicts what this country was built on, escaping religious persecution.
Everyone on this advisory board is against gays, transgenders and same sex marriage. I thought we were moving ahead, now they want to take us backwards.
Listed below are the members of the Evangelical Advisory Board. Pretty scary, huh. Nut-bag Michelle Bachmann, the one that said "God sent Trump as a ‘Reprieve’ from trans rights" and suggests Trump’s surprise victory was divine. She also stated, “If Hillary Clinton was going to continue and double down on the policies of Barack Obama, I think people just saw no hope that the United States would return to a position of Judeo-Christian morality,”
wait a minute!
Wait, wait a minute now, the United States is not supposed to be in a position of 'Judeo-Christian morality', or of any other religious morality. Loony toons Bachmann also believes, as does VP Pence, in sexual conversion therapy. Bachman and her husband, Marcus Bachmann, used to run a sexual therapy conversion clinic. I always suspected Bachmann's husband is gay. Just my opinion. You know, the ones that hate it the loudest are usually the ones with a skeleton in their closet.
He's not praying. He's probably wondering if he could grab Paula White's pussy. He said, on tape, he has the right to grab women's pussy's. And the Evangelical love him!
Also on the board, there's Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, they claim to be able to talk to tornados, and "rebuke" them, in Jesus' name. They claim to be able rebuke the weather, to be able stop storms. Yet, the worst storm to hit their home state in five decades soaked Texas as the Copelands stood idly by. Hurricane Harvey made landfall roughly 400 miles from the Copeland’s home in Forth Worth. It would have been nice had the Copelands, who have a private jet and millions of dollars of resources at their disposal, made a short trip to Corpus Christi , rebuke the storm, and they could've saved their neighbors from calamity. But they didn't. Why didn't they? I mean, they have the power of Jesus, why didn't you all stop Harvey? Because you couldn't? If so, that makes you all liars. You told your congregation you could rebuke the weather. But you didn't. Or maybe you couldn't. Either way, you lied. The disgrace that is our Evangelical.
I can't go through the whole list, just google any one of them. It will put the fear of Jesus in you.

Our bigoted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Remember that time he lied under oath? Yeah, that was funny.
*this just in...
I just read this, Attorney General Jeff Sessions consulted Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal advocacy group that champions conservative Christian causes, ahead of issuing controversial guidance to government agencies and departments on Friday about how to interpret federal religious liberty protections.
Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a group whose stated mission is to “keep the doors open for the Gospel by advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family,” hailed Sessions’ announcement, while a number of leading LGBT advocacy groups condemned the move for effectively offering a religious exemption for sexual orientation discrimination.
This is bullshit. And this is something that is going to just get bigger. This is exactly my point, the country is being run by an 'Establishment of Religion'. This is against the Constitution. Is it not? I will not live my life dictated by an 'Establishment of Religion'. Call your Congress person, your Senators, call everyone. You can get a list of all the members of congress and senators phone numbers, email addresses and even some fax numbers here.
One more thing,
Did you hear the one about...
...the married Republican Congressman that has a 100% anti-abortion voting record whose mistress posted on his Facebook account that he asked her to have an abortion, just the week before? Yeah, it was Rep. Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania. Funny, right? See the hypocrisy? Scandal happens on both sides of the aisle but it's funnier when it happens to a Republican.
Everything I print is based on fact. I'm not here to bash Republicans or Christians, I just point out the facts. I believe in the two party system and freedom for all, under the U.S. Constitution. If you think I have stated something non factual, please, email me. If proven wrong, I will stand corrected. I am here to help fight religious persecution and oppression from the far right that seek to dominate and translate the Constitution to fit their beliefs only. Resist.
