Playing Pope, Michael Gerson
upbraids Evangelicals for
their love of Trump

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Posted By:PageTurner, 3/12/2018 3:14:39 PM

Who died and made NeverTrump Michael Gerson the pope of the Evangelicals? His nearly 7,000-word screed in The Atlantic condemning Evangelical Christians for electing and supporting President Trump shows just how out of touch he is. Gerson is on a roll. He´s written a long piece in the magazine of the hoity-toity, The Atlantic, upbraiding Evangelicals for their support for President Trump and pronouncing them finished as a force for not understanding their own Christianity. The whole thing had an absolutely creepy holier-than-thou tone, looking down his nose as he does at Christians. He uses his own past as an Evangelical,

Again I ask the question- what was the alternative? A man who clearly isn´t perfect or that demon Clinton whose hatred of normal Americans rages in her ´heart´ like a fever? I´ll take the flawed man, thanks.

Not even the Pope would be allowed to try to enforce an opinion like that. For Gerson´s information, even Popes have to stick to matters of faith and morals that affect the entire Church, and are not allowed to try to shove off political opinions. When Pope fights with Emperor, there can be and have been saints on both sides. No, no, no, Gerson. Impertinent, presumptuous.

Loved the use of “Pecksniffian hypocrisy” to describe Michael Gerson’s view of Evangelicals. He has a lot of nerve telling anyone in any religion (other than perhaps his own), that he understands their religion better than they do. Such Pompous Piety

So it was okay for Democrats to re-elect Clinton after he was Impeached? After he gave Fifth Graders the idea what a ´Lewinsky" was? After the world found out he really didn´t smoke his Cigars after all! Hmmmm Seems to me there is a HUGE double standard that Democrats are trying to use! Won´t work! Clinton made all Democrats Creepy for voting for him after all the nasty things he did in the Oval Office!

Sounds like Gerson has drunk deeply of the Churchian koolaid of worldliness. Christians voted for Trump for many reasons, one of which was his shocking streak of honesty. We have never had such an honest person running for office in my lifetime of 62 years any way.

Trump´s honesty, plus his willingness to not only listen to the voters, but actually DO what we want, is a refreshing change of pace, and I will not ever apologize to a world worshiper like Gerson.

By what right does Gerson call Donald Trump morally corrupt!? Evangelicals are not necessarily better than anyone else, but they are forgiven (or know where to find it) while the pile of stones being cast by progressives who have never ever sinned is blotting out the sun.

Former FBI Director James Comey — at one point a registered Republican — is urging Americans to vote for the Democratic party in the upcoming midterm elections this November, claiming that the current Republican Congress failed to live up to the country’s founding ideals. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that “Ambition must … counteract ambition,” Comey wrote in a tweet Monday night. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. Policy differences don’t matter right now. History has its eyes on us.”

Dawn Li, along with her husband and two children, were on a pre-dawn boat tour on Monday with other excited tourists when a “lava bomb” erupted sending it flying through the roof. Mrs Li told ABC news: “I had just said, ´This is like a Jurassic experience.´ And my husband said, ´Well, this is on your bucket list’. "So, we were super excited to see it. It was amazing. “But the explosion hit and we all sort of turned simultaneously and my husband kind of leaned over me but we could feel the rocks hitting us."

If there´s anything that lays out how arrogant and entitled the Democratic Party is, take a look at how many Democratic grandees´ feathers are being ruffled by Democratic Socialist "it girl" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated a ten-term Democratic incumbent in their Bronx-Queens congressional district earlier this month and who now outshines them all. It´s not that her socialism or her ignorance of world affairs bothers them, the way it does us. It´s that she´s showing bad machine politics sense, the one thing that keeps Democrats going in the absence of being able to admit they actually are all a bunch

With all the treason-shrieking and media howls about supposed Russian interference in the 2016 election, it was refreshing to hear Fox News host Tucker Carlson pour some cold water onto this fever swamp. Here was Carlson, last night: Carlson brings some needed perspective to what goes on in international affairs: Nations don’t have friends, or even enemies; just interests. There was a famous quote from 19th century U.K. Prime Minister Lord Palmerston that phrased it well: “England has no eternal friends, England has no perpetual enemies, England has only eternal and perpetual interests.” By contrast, America is the home of one

HILO, Hawaii -- A volcanic explosion sent a lava bomb crashing through the roof of a tour boat off Hawaii´s Big Island, injuring 23 people, officials said. According to the Hawaii County Fire Department, the incident occurred early Monday morning. A lava bomb flew through the air and punctured the roof of the boat, leaving a large gaping hole in the vessel and damaging one of the boat´s railings. They were aboard a tour boat that takes visitors to see lava plunging into the ocean from a volcano that has been erupting for two months. The boat managed to return to Wailoa Harbor in

American politics have borrowed a lot of ideas from sports. Nowadays, everyone has become familiar with certain phrases that we use in everyday life, often without even thinking about their origins. For example, the phrase "pull no punches" originated in boxing, and the proverbial "drop the ball” came from football. The well-known rule of "three strikes and you´re out" came from baseball. The latter is the best way to characterize President Trump´s attitude toward Vladimir Putin. It seems that leftists in America still cannot forgive Putin for the destruction of the ideals that were nurtured in the West by the Soviet

Twenty-eight-year-old socialist sensation Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn´t all that, you know, ummm, up on the news. Good thing she never met Bill Buckley, because on PBS´s current version of his old show, Firing Line with Margaret Hoover, she came out looking like an idiot. Seriously, watch this: Daily Wire´s Ryan Saavedra spotted the embarrassing exchange, writing: New York socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attacked Israel in a recent interview on PBS´s "Firing Line," calling them the occupiers of Palestine and later admitting that she has no idea what she is talking about regarding Israel. Ocasio-Cortez´s remarks came in response to a question from host Margaret Hoover, who

Our Constitution forbids the creation of “titles of nobility.” The Framers thought it was important enough that the prohibition appears twice, once forbidding the federal government from doing it, and elsewhere extending the ban to the states. And Americans, to the extent that they give the question any thought at all, probably think that the ban works: After all, nobody’s squiring about the United States, sporting titles like Duke of Pennsylvania or Earl of Internal Revenue. But now I’m wondering if we don’t have a problem. First, Charles C.W. Cooke, a Brit who just recently became an American citizen, noted the practice

The New York Times shared a bizarre video cartoon that features President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in a sexual relationship that has been slammed as “a disgusting new low” for the Gray Lady. “Donald Trump’s not-so-secret admiration for Vladimir Putin plays out in a teenager’s bedroom, where the fantasies of this forbidden romance come to life,” the paper’s Opinion section captioned the animation on Twitter. The cartoon, part of a three-part series titled “Trump Bites,” begins with Trump using breath spray while fixing his tie in front of a shirtless photo of Putin – who eventually arrives and causes the

Long-simmering ethnic tensions in a party increasingly defined by identity politics could erupt if Nancy Pelosi’s mental decline forces her to bow out of her leadership of the Democrats’ House Caucus. With African-Americans the largest loyal base constituency, the fact that there has never been a black minority leader, much less speaker, the choice of her successor could split the party. Potentially at stake is the Speakership that could result if the longed-for Blue Wave produces a Democrat House majority. Kyle Olsen of The American Mirror red flags Pelosi’s latest lapse into incoherence at a podium. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pelosi suffered

Sometimes, photos shock the conscience.

Which is why it´s so shocking. How could this exist? How could someone be so alone and forsaken and without food?

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

Obama’s speech to a cheering crowd of thousands in South Africa countered many of Trump’s policies, rallying people around the world to keep alive the ideas that Mandela worked for including democracy, diversity and tolerance.

Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way.

In a private meeting Wednesday, House Democrats announced that they will be employing the new slogan “For the People” in the 2018 midterm elections. “We have 110 days from right now until Election Day and we will be spending the month of August in our home districts and we wanted to make sure we are singing from the same song sheet on the three top issues,” Rep.
