“It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” – Revelation 13:16-18
Look I am not a fan of Revelation. Honestly I think it has done more to ruin Christianity, creating cruel and ruthless churches, and people like Westboro Baptist Church, than anything else in the last 2,000 years until the arrival of ……..Donald Trump.
Trump loves to attach words like the “greatest”, the “biggest” and the “most powerful” to everything he touches or is involved in and over his last two years we can attach those superlatives to mass shootings, natural disasters, and just the general state of discourse our country is experiencing. And the people who fancy themselves the most righteous of us all, the Evangelicals, have not only embraced this crude, crass, female assaulting, egomaniac, they worship him, they adore him and they wear his mark at rally’s to pay homage to him, the MAGA mark.
For eight years, Barack Obama was crucified by the white, Christian right as the anti-Christ. But in Obama’s eight years as President he had zip, zero of the controversies, the baggage, the corruption, or even the number of lawsuits and convictions that Trump has had in just two. And family values? Anyone with a single grain of intelligence (which we know the racist, white Deplorables don’t have) can’t even measure or compare Obama’s family values against a man who has been married three times, who has paid off porn stars and Playboy Bunnies and who was recorded stating that he likes to grab women by their pussy. But they don’t care. For them, we are comparing an intelligent, caring and compassionate black man against a piece of shit, rich, white man and that difference is enough for them to worship at the feet of Trump, at the feet of the Beast.
So to all you Christians out there wearing your crosses, carrying your Bibles and wearing your MAGA baseball caps I hope your conversion was worth it. Brown Jesus, that middle-eastern that looks more like Barack Obama or the people in the “Caravan” than the Orange Panda you worship can’t wait to meet you and ask you one simple question; “Why did you allow this to happen?” and your only answer, Supreme Court judges. Franklin Graham won’t be able to save your sorry ass from burning in hell, no, he will be joining you there but it’s not to late to save yourself, it’s never to late, until it is.
