Christian Loonies for Trump

True to form, Evangelical Christian lunatics are coming out in strength for Donald Trump, that most un-Christian of American presidents.

Here we have a clutch of such fruitloops. The first is one is self-styled "prophetess" Kat Kerr, whom readers of my blog will remember from when she had ordered 100 million angels to guard the GOP National Congress and announced that her personal friend, Jesus, was a Trump supporter.

She has now announced that she can draw God from memory, because she has met him, touched his 'living' hair and has a photographic memory.

Christian “Prophetess”: I Can Draw God “Because of My Photographic Memory” | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

In her latest podcast, Kerr tells her credulous followers that she's can draw God because she has been to Heaven with her friend Jesus, who introduced her to his father, and she has a photographic memory:
...I could [draw God], because of my photographic memory. But I think one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had was when Jesus Christ introduced me to His father and Jesus Himself gave me a commission to reveal the father Himself. What He’s like, the things He says, what His heart is on things…

… He definitely has white hair. But it’s got life in it. It’s like, it moves, and I’ll never forget that I touched it one time when I was there. It’s like life jumped into my entire being. His eyes are like — you can barely see His eyes because of the glory coming out of Him…

As is so often the case with evangelical Christian frauds, it is impossible to verify (or disprove) her tale, so her dupes only have her word to go on.

Evidently, Kerr has not read her Bible, or hopes her credulous dupes won't have because here, in effect, she is accusing the author of Exodus of lying - unless of course, Kat Kerr is dead, and not just from the neck up, like her Trumpanzee evangelical dupes!:
And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.

And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Exodus 33:17-21
Of course, that was written in the days before God became the immaterial thing existing outside of space and time that Christian apologists now need to present it as. In those days, God was very much a material, anthropomorphic entity, complete with hands, back, face - the lot.

Kerr is perhaps most memorable for having declared that in Heaven, there are tractor-driving cows and cities made entirely of Jell-O.

We also learn from "prophetess" Kerr that:
  • Heaven has different seasons.
  • Heaven has a surf park with 80-foot waves. Safety isn't an issue, and anyway, how would you know if you drowned?
  • Heaven has horses to ride.
  • Each floor of Heaven has a different aroma.
  • In Spring, the “trees sing, the flowers will dance with you, even the rocks cry out and worship Him.”
  • Heaven has “flowercopters” to carry people into the air.
  • Heaven has cows that drive tractors.
  • In Heaven, kids take art classes taught by rabbits. Giant rabbits. Giant multi-coloured rabbits. Who help the kids paint the eggs with “liquid light” so they can draw Minions on them. And inside the eggs are baby chicks or rabbits.
  • The kids sit on mushrooms that rise up into the air.
  • The Easter traditions were invented in Heaven.
  • There’s a city in Heaven made out of Jell-O where you can “eat the mailboxes.”
  • Heaven has a roller coaster where you leap through the air and go under the sea.

Well, that's convinced me; how about you? But don't take my word for it; listen to Kat telling her dupes audience:

She has also claimed previously to have taken personal control of several natural phenomenon, including huricanes, tropical storms and volcanoes.

It seems, the 'Holy Spirit' might not be the only thing Kerr is using during her trips! No doubt a few of her credulous dupes dedicated followers will be persuaded that voting for Trump is a brilliant idea for which her magic friend and friend of Donald Trump in the sky will be eternally grateful.

'Bishop' Earl Walker Jackson Sr
E.W. Jackson Says Nancy Pelosi's Prayers Are 'A Blasphemy Against God' | Right Wing Watch

The second raving fruitloop to come out for Trump is right-wing evangelical pastor E.W. Jackson. 'Bishop' Jackson is founder of STAND (Staying True to America's National Destiny) which campaigns for a fundamentalist Christian theocratic takeover of the US government - a project he feels is best served by a second Trump term.

In the 1980s he switched from Democrat to Republican, declaring the Democratic Party to be the party of the 'antichrist'. His 2013 campaign for the Lt. Governorship of Virginia was characterised by homophobia, Islamophobia, racism and general intolerance for anyone who doesn't share his sexuality and extremist political/religious views.

During the campaign he called a press conference in which he revealed a previously unreported history of financial bankruptcy, substance abuse and tax evasion, saying he wanted to set the record straight. He also sought to explain a section in one of his books in which he had warned that yoga makes the soul available for possession by Satan!

'Bishop' Jackson has worked himself up into a righteous frenzy over the idea that anyone other than a right-wing Trumpanzee pastor should imagine they too have the right to pray to God. Anyone else who tries is committing blasphemy, according to Jackson.

What caused his indignant outrage was the news that Nancy Pelozi, Democrat Speaker and implacable anti-Trump campaigner for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, had prayed for Donald Trump's recovery from Covid-19 and that she was proposing to establish a congressional commission that would have the power to remove a president from office under the 25th Amendment. Section 4 of the 25th Amendment, which has never been used, provides for the removal of the President on the grounds that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.

Section 4 of the Amendment reads:
Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.
Despite the fact that what Pelozi is proposing is exactly what is provided for in the US Constitution, Jackson considers her 'crazy'. Can she get any crazier?' he asked.

Apparently, panic-stricken that such a commission could find his idol, Donald Trump, incapable, presumably through deteriorating mental faculties, in addition to his obvious narcissistic personality disorder, or ongoing consequences of his flirtation with Covid-19, of carrying out his duties, finding just the excuse he needs in Luke 6:44, Jackson fulminates:
Nancy Pelosi is wasting everybody’s time with this nonsense.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speak. A good person out of the good treasure of their heart brings forth good things, and an evil person out of the evil treasure of the heart brings forth evil things. I think we can say case closed as to what is in Nancy Pelosi’s heart.

She talks about when she prays for the president. Folks, as far as I’m concerned — I’m serious about this — I wouldn’t want Nancy Pelosi praying for me. I really wouldn’t. I really wouldn’t because I just believe that’s a blasphemy against God. I’m serious about that. I believe that’s just a blasphemy against God. You better pray for yourself and ask God to forgive you. That’s what you better do. And ask God to cleanse you of all that mess in your head and in your heart. That’s what you better do. You better ask Jesus to save you.

Sadly, the once great party of Lincoln is now, under the increasingly malign influence of lunatic fringe evangelical Christians, having to depend on people who in any normal society would be regarded as certifiable. The party that started the 2016 presidential campaign with an 'anyone but Trump' agenda has decided that power is more important than principle and so is obliged to turn to these fruitloops for support and to pander to their ever-more ludicrous notions.

There will be some red faces and a lot of explaining to do on November 4th.
