“Christ for President”

Let’s have Christ our President. Let us have him for our king.”

“Christ for President” by Wilco and Woody Guthrie

I am the Chosen One.

Donald Trump, August 21, 2019
Christ for President
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Jeff Tweedy & Jay Bennett

Let’s have Christ our President
Let us have him for our king
Cast your vote for the Carpenter
That you call the Nazarene

The only way we can ever beat
These crooked politician men
Is to run the money changers out of the temple
Put the Carpenter in

O It’s Jesus Christ our President
God above our king
With a job and a pension for young and old
We will make hallelujah ring

Every year we waste enough
To feed the ones who starve
We build our civilization up
And we shoot it down with wars

But with the Carpenter on the seat
Way up in the Capital town
The USA would be on the way
Prosperity Bound!

Is Donald Trump the Most Christlike President in History?

For all of the media’s jibes suggesting Trump isn’t very smart, the importance of relationships over correct knowledge, correct morality and correct conduct, is a profound truth Trump seems to understand on an almost genetic level. In this way, Trump gets Christianity in a way I suspect few of us do.

Trump offers revealingly bad answers about the Good Book

“And there’s just, actually, it’s an incredible book, so many things you can learn from the Bible. And you can lead your life — and I’m not just talking in terms of religion I’m talking in terms of leading a life even beyond a religion. There are so many brilliant things in the Bible. … The Bible is the most special thing.”

Donald Trump in an interview with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, October 2015

’I’m 99.9% Jewish’ proclaims Wayne Allyn Root, the conspiracy nut who called Trump ‘second coming of God’

“President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God.”

“Separating children from their parents goes against natural law, and those Christians … you can’t do it. It is cruel. It is among the greatest of cruelties. And to defend what? Territory, or the economy of a country or who knows what.”

Pope Francis,

“Those who build walls will become prisoners of the walls they put up. This is history.”

Pope Francis, April 1, 2019

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel.”

Pope Francis, February 2016
