Thank you Jesus for Trump

My quote from that sign might not be exactly right.  I found the colors and context a little confusing.  And then a woman gave Trump a baby.

Hey CNN, you seem baffled by the voting habits of “evangelicals.”  Can I toss you a theory?

The coveted “evangelical” demographic is angry at the decline of Christianity in America.  It feels much better to blame Muslims and Democrats than to repent of the sins that have chased people away and fall on our faces and confess our sins and beg God’s forgiveness and become a church that serves its neighbor.

So rather than becoming communities of extraordinary hospitality, generosity, and grace; we have sold our soul to the Republican Party as a strategy to beat down the external forces that are surely at fault for our demise.  And now, since we haven’t gotten to watch the beat down we paid for, we’re blaming the Republican Party as well.  Who can we find to punch the people who are to blame for our unhappiness in the face?  The church of Jesus Christ is buying its soul back at a loss, and is looking for a new buyer.

There is this guy running for president who says he’s never asked God to forgive him. He does enjoy making great deals, and likes to make other people pay for stuff.  So, even though the church will probably end up paying him to let us sell him our soul, who better than him for the church of Jesus Christ, who doesn’t want to ask God to forgive us either?
