For decades now, our great pious corporate billionaire evangelical leaders have been called upon by sinning pols and celebrities when they are caught up in their own monstrousness, depravity and duplicity. Billy Graham was a regular, and now his unreasonable son, Frank, is a go-to whenever one of these white right-wing greed-mongers or perverts gets caught with their pants down and are instantly forgiven and suddenly devout as they heal themselves with a return to humble prayer and Jesus after their cover is blown and lawyers are helpless to defend them.
We are so forgiving when it comes to Jesus. What the big pols and world-class crooks like Trump have in common with the Falwells and the Grahams is that they are all fellow con-men bilking the ignorant, the poor, the uniformed, the desperate. Now, Trump, the great sinner, the hoser of any small businessman or builder who got in his way, stiffing them and fighting off their pathetic suits with a team of high-priced lawyers belonging to the same elite club, (he single-handedly destroyed Atlantic City) held a prayer meeting in the White House with a group of very important pastors.
The Donald, currently under fire for his lies involving the Russians, and whose son seems to be the tragic figure exposing him, and whom he can't throw under the bus and destroy because he's his own blood, seemed to be leading this team of evangelical pastors in prayer, this symbol of unholy arrogance bowing his big billowy head while supportive hands among the hypocrites found his back in worship of the new messiah as they attempt to sheperd him through the shafting of America
Of course, evangelical swine, when caught cheating on their wives, cheating on their taxes, swindling their congregations, or sexually exploiting young boys--like corrupt pols--return to Jesus in a manner so breathtakingly holy and humiliated we must believe them. Perhaps, when the President, who has a way of making friends with our country's enemies and enemies of our friends and allies, and shoves his hand in woman's pussies upon initial introductions, will find solace with these grave men following his prayers for the salvation of America ... or is it Donald Trump himself?
Anyway, all is forgiven, or ignored.
During Watergate, Billy Graham made repeated trips to the White House when the notorious liar and crook Richard Nixon fell to pieces and was impeached. George Bush found himself elected president because he handed himself over totally to Jesus and rallied the white evangelicals. Clinton showed his Southern Baptist adoration after lying about his blow job in the Lincoln room. It goes on and on, they all, whether caught in the most evil sins or not, kow-tow to the mega millionaires in satin robes, somehow cleansed of their dastardliness, and now the worst one of them all, a disgrace to any manner of Godliness, is leading prayers in the White House.
This rousing speaker at Liberty University spoke on the Christian Broadcasting Network, knowing those cleansed souls would forgive the great sinner no matter how scandalously he behaved, and afterwards sat down with an interview one of the country's smoothest evangelical haters, Pat Robertson, the two of them schmoozing each other, the old hypocrite stunned and outraged at the fake press condemning the pathological liar. It was great theatrics, as were the graven pastors stooped in intimate prayer with the Donald, the old hater in sheep's' clothing commiserating ... it was almost enough to get those bible-beaters and gun-toters from the most unfortunate pockets of America to whip out their flags and have a sentimentally patriotic cry.
This deluded cult worships the great Messiah. They, like so many who are not religious, also worship the great Messiah, who can do no wrong. They are conditioned to be fooled, to accept fables and lies, they are used to absorbing fiery sermons rendering thunderous guilt, followed by the delivery of breathless atonement, and at last, passing of the hat.
There is no limit to the evil of the great Messiah they will not accept, as long as his fellow evangelical phonies forgive and encourage him.
Our real Americans.
