Church and State Together Again

Why fear the union of church and state? Because theocracies are as authoritarian as it gets.

Mark Taylor is a garden variety right wing religious nut. He thinks he's a true prophet and his extreme right wing jerimands against such targets as Obama and the Pope are God speaking through him. He think opponents of Donald Trump have had their DNA alterred, are no longer human, and they may all need to be arrested. He thinks anti-Trump demonstrators are "demon-strators." Literally. And he says death to demons.

So. Liberty University has put $2,000,000 and a lot of donated student labor into a movie called 'The Trump Prophecy,' based on this guy and his teachings. Why run with this nut?

To promote radical authoritarian theocracy, seems to me....

The movie will be in special showings in theaters everywhere Oct 3rd and 4th. Read about it here: https://crooksandliars.com/2018/09/c...-movie-theater

There plain as day, if you pay attention enough to scare the sane and sound minded.
A sector of the religious who believe in expediting the Apocalypse causing the final battle bring back their Savior. Seeing this as the end times and wanting to make it so.
Forgetting completely ""For you truly know that the day of our Lord so comes as a thief in the night.""
1 Thessalonians 5:2

That's One Thessalonians fifty two in Trumps world!

Also the rationale for the rr support of Israel and making Jeruselem the capital to fulfill their concept of prophecy, regardless of consequences.

I know Trump and friends wanted it gone.

Johnson Amendment still there, but enforcement may be more iffy than ever....

Of course this Taylor character's 'preaching' calls for trashing the whole Constitution, actually. No due process for demons!

The one thing that never ends is the end times. It's amazing that people think their so special that the end times has start with them. It also amazing how many have passed on in a non apocalyptic manner and if there is reincarnation will they go damn wrong again. Sooner or later one will be right but it won't be how they think. I wonder if their last thought will be "Whhhaaat the F***.

When I read or see these morons it makes me proud to be an atheist.
