Evangelical Preacher Says Bible Condones Trump Attacking North Korea

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

— Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, telling the Washington Post the president has the moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Just Burn the Rest

These days mixing religion and politics doesn’t warrant a second look,
And talk of separating church and state is considered gobbledygook.
So now down in Tennessee
They’ve got a state bird and state tree,
And they just done went and made the Holy Bible their state book.

Recruiting the Jews

It’s just not the same without Michele Bachmann running.
We certainly do miss her constant dumber and dumbing.
But it’s OK,
She’s found her way —
She’s now campaigning for Jesus Christ’s Second Coming.

Bachmann: The End Times Are Near

We recognize the shortness of the hour. And that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the Kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, he’s coming soon.

— Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), calling for converting as many people as possible to Christianity because Jesus is “coming soon,” The Hill reports.

Huckabee Says Obama ‘Pretends’ to Be a Christian

I’m less concerned about what faith the person has. I’m more concerned about the authenticity of their faith and how that plays out in their politics … I’m also concerned about a guy that believes he’s a Christian and pretends to be and then says he is, but then does things that makes it very difficult for people to practice their Christian faith.

— Mike Huckabee, telling Newsmax that President Obama “pretends to be” a Christian.

Franklin Graham Suggests Stopping Muslim Immigration

Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized – and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad. During World War 2, we didn’t allow Japanese to immigrate to America, nor did we allow Germans. Why are we allowing Muslims now?

— Franklin Graham, urging in a Facebook post for a halt to all Muslims coming into the United States in the aftermath of shootings in Chattanooga that killed four Marines and one sailor.

Santorum Misses the Cause of the Charleston Killings

This is one of those situations where you just have to take a step back and say we — you know, you talk about the importance of prayer in this time and we’re now seeing assaults on our religious liberty we’ve never seen before. It’s a time for deeper reflection beyond this horrible situation.

— GOP primary hopeful Rick Santorum, calling the church shooting in Charleston — which left nine people dead — a “crime of hate” and connected the event to a broader “assault on our religious liberty,” the Washington Post reports.

Robertson: God Killed Your Friend’s Baby So It Wouldn’t Grow Up to Be Hitler

As far as God’s concerned, He knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease. God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.

— Pat Robertson, on the “700 Club,” explaining to a woman whose friend’s 3-year-old died why God took the baby and why it was a good thing, reported by Mediaite.

Huckabee Says We’re Moving Toward Criminalizing Christianity

I think it’s fair to say that Christian convictions are under attack as never before. Not just in our lifetime, but ever before in the history of this great nation. We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity.

— Mike Huckabee, quoted by Politico.

The Zealotry Prayer

Here’s one from the archives:

Lord, save us from the Islamists,
And while you’re at it, the Christianists.
And save us from the Jews
And the holy rollers, too,
For we are humble zealot-fearing atheists, Amen.
