Amazing the excuses that some Christians will use.
“David Barton, the Religious Right’s favorite phony historian, is trying to sell his base on voting for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. But where most of Barton’s allies have resorted to pumping up Trump by dumping on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Barton acknowledges Trump’s flaws – but says they don’t matter because Trump has been chosen by God to lead the United States.
Furthermore, Barton says, if you don’t vote for Trump, God might hold you accountable.” – http://au.org/blogs/wall-of-separation/desperate-plea-texas-theocrat-says-voting-for-trump-is-ok-because-god-has-a
Barton is a notorious liar in history, politics and religion. He does serve as a great example of a TrueChristian and I have to thank him for demonstrating just how idiotic the Christian god is by listing all of the bad choices for leaders this god made.
Addendum: and now another Christian pastor is sure that Trump is here to prepare the way for JC and the “end times”. http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/trump-christian-liaison-god-raised-trump-help-pave-way-second-coming

It’s good to know the supreme creator of the universe, the tuner of all natural laws, the craftsman of genes and memes has time for US elections.
I’m going to blame your TOOAIN 🙂

Are we to believe this same deity chose Cruz and dumped him for Trump? Or the Joseph pyramid guy?
heh. exactly, this is evidently what we are to believe and that is that this god is as moronic as large number of Americans.
You know, for once he might be right.
Trump recently became a born-again Christian. (TrueBeliever&Trade;)
Hillary’s been a lifelong Methodist. (i.e. godforsaken heretic)
The Lord moves in mysterious ways.
Yup, Trump is a BAC, which is just as valid as the claims of any other BAC. 🙂
Most of don’t get our voting advice from a loco weed who happens to be Christian.
Hillary Clinton is as corrupt as the light year is long.
She and her sexual predator pervert husband Bill have been at it for decades.
Their corruption is part of the public record for all to see.
Hmm, I have locoweed growing in my garden, and if you want to claim that Christianity is nothing more than a chemical that makes people crazy, that’s fine with me, SOM.
So, we have Clinton, whom you make claims about. Now, you are expected to give evidence to support those claims. You also claim her husband is a “sexual predator pervert”. Now, everything between Bill and Monica was between consenting adults and evidently no more “perverted” than any other sex act by a human being. So again, evidence for your claims, SOM?
Then we have Trump who was married how many times, SOM? In direct contradiction to your bible.
Funny how you are accepting of one and not of the other. Why is that SOM? Why the hypocrisy?
Also, no surprise that you’ve come back and still have not supported your claims on other posts. Such a good TrueChristian you are!

Where did SOM say that he was accepting of Trump? And there was more than just Bill and Monica. Not all Bill did was consensual. SOM also never refers to his bible, so where did that come from? Do you even have a clue what SOM believes. You’re full of strawman arguments.
Where did SOM support Trump? on another blog. I knew that he or someone else would try to make an excuse for him, and try to claim that he didn’t say such things so I kept the information handy:
“Here in the USA the leftists are ready, willing and able to reek havoc and carnage because they don’t like the way GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, expresses himself.” – June 17 https://justmerveilleux.wordpress.com/2016/06/17/the-mood-is-ugly-and-an-mp-is-dead-polly-toynbee-the-guardian/

I’m very used to watching people like SOM try to deny what they’ve said and making baseless claims repeatedly. And when they are shown that their claims are false, they keep repeating them, showing that they have no problem with lying. I know what SOM believes because he so helpfully tells us on his blog and in the various comments he makes. He is quite the TrueChristian, so yes, dog, he has mentioned his bible many many times. You also seem to have no idea what a straw man argument actually is. You might want to actually know what you are saying before making another ignorant comment. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man
Okay, evidence for your claims, dog. Or do you only have baseless nonsense you got from somewhere else?
You must be living out in the Oort Cloud.
Hillary’s exploits in corruption are in the news every day.
Again, citing common knowledge is not required.
Ah, so you can’t show any, SOM. How nice for you to demonstrate this. All you have are more baseless claims, SOM, and you again show that you cannot support them. If things are such “common knowledge” it should be very easy for you to cut and paste some links. But you refuse to. Why is that, SOM?
Now, to show you how one supports claims with evidence, I will be happy to show links that demonstrate that it is most curious that a Christian would support Donald Trump, especially one like you who claims that the bible is so very important and is a source of morality.
See, it’s not hard at all.
The head of the FBI is but one source.
Freedom of Information sources and the hacking of the DNC and Bill and Hillary’s “non-profit” prove corruption all the way to the Earth’s core.
I see that your cited source is only a biased left wing Democrat Party newspaper.
Did you know that newspapers and television networks are all in for Hillary.
Everything they say about THE Donald is a big fat lie.
That’s why you can’t find any real sources on so-called Trump scandals.
Go to real sources like FBI and real investigative reporting (which doesn’t take place in newspapers or network news anymore).
yep, there we go, SOM, you ignoring evidence and still lying. You evidently have no idea what my source is since it is not a newspaper or “left wing” (though you probably find the Wall Street Journal to be too “left wing” for you with your idiocy). Funny how your claim that all newspapers and television networks are all in for Hillary is completely wrong and again, one more false claim. So, SOM, is Fox News “all in for Hillary”? And if they are all in for Hillary, then why do they report on her email screw ups constantly? It seems that reality again is ignoring SOM and showing that he has nothing but false claims.
You see, SOM, when you try to lie about things like this, you trip yourself up when you simultaneously try to claim that no one mentions the Clinton’s false statements and then try to claim that this information is “common knowledge”. You are shown to be a liar on all fronts, showing that, again, Christianity is a failure and makes no one a better person.
So, please do show us where “real investigative reporting” is being done since you have tried your best to ignore the actual investigative reporting that has been shown to you. This should be great fun to read what sources you think are acceptable.
How do you absolve Trump’s infidelities and fraudulent dealings?
LikeLiked by 1 person
The same way they (religiots of every stripe) absolve all of the sciences contradicting their magic books. The working definition for delusion is “sweeping all you do not care for under the rug.”
And what infidelities and fraudulent dealings are you referring to?
The ones he’s openly bragged about.
To Hillary’s acolytes, making a fortune, putting people to work and having a beautiful, foreign wife would indeed seem criminal.
But the truth is, the reason you can’t name any is because there aren’t any.
You’re just part of Hillary’s hate and destroy campaign.
SOM, you are expected to show evidence for your claims. If you cannot, then all you are doing is lying and bearing false witness against someone. Do you plan to continue to ignore your bible? I’ve taken care of showing you the evidence of Trump’s acts.
Now, why would a Christian support such a man? And why would a Christian ignore his bible in order to do so and to lie about others?
again, here is the evidence about Trump that you have tried to ignore:
See, it’s not hard at all.
and we can look at the bible to see that Donny ignores the bible like you do, SOM:
Matthew 19 “8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”
Leviticus 19 “The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: ‘Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy……13 “‘Do not defraud or rob your neighbor.‘Do not hold back the wages of a hired worker overnight.”
Matthew 6 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
1 Corinthians “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. ”
What Hillary’s acolytes think is irrelevant to the discussion. His multiple marriages and sexual braggadocio are a matter of pubic record. In one Howard Stern interview he jokes making it through the 1980s without contracting a disease was like his “personal” Vietnam. All it takes is a quick search on the Internet to discover.
Why is divorce a scandal?
And last time I checked bragging wasn’t against the law or even unethical.
Hmm, seems like SOM is ignoring his bible again and didn’t actually read the sources given. Is it a scandal when someone has an affair when married? Let me ask you, was it a scandal when Bill Clinton did this?
Again, SOM, why are you ignoring the words of Jesus Christ and Paul when you support Trump? Why support an adulterer? I can understand not liking either candidate but you are defending and supporting Trump, and this is most curious for a TrueChristian. You are telling lies for this man and I do wonder why.
You also might want to read the actual facts about Clinton’s email issues:
I know, you’ll just ignore those links too. Willful ignorance is the only way your beliefs, religious and otherwise, can survive, SOM.
When did I write divorce was a scandal?
I asked, “How do you absolve Trump’s infidelities and fraudulent dealings?”
Does Jesus/God approve of adultery? Do Christians? Do you?
I think SOM is asking about the one article that shows many of Trump’s scandals and screw-ups. It mentions his divorces along with his business dealings as scandals. SOM fails to note that Trump was committing adultery.
Well, I expect SOM to keep track of his conversations and tailor the responses accordingly. Sidestepping questions by introducing points made by others won’t work–at least not with me.
Hrrm what wrong doing? http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/joshuaepstein/here_s_proof_of_donald_trump_s_business_failures_corruption_scams_and_mob_ties
But of course, SOM isn’t interested in evidence…anyone who is Christian in the 21rst century with access to the internet, cannot be interested, by definition
indeed that seems to be the case. SOM seems to have run away again. Poor thing just doesn’t know what to do when reality bites him on the ass.
Again he has to avoid evidence, as there’s plenty of evidence on the internet that the Christian God isn’t real and the Bible is chock full of falsehoods
