The Watering Hole, Monday, July 11th, 2016: “Christians” vs “Critters”

If you’d like more proof that at least some “Christian Evangelical” megachurch “leaders”, along with the “Prosperity” Jeebus hucksters and their varied brethren, should be under the microscope of the IRS, there’s a few articles on the Christian Post’s “Politics” page. (Also see RawStory’s recent thread about “Pastor” Jeffress.)

Or, if you prefer to start your day/week with some ‘critters’, here’s the official “Watering Hole”:

  1. Amazing how easy it is to PROVE that humans have DESCENDED from the HIGHER animals! Compare any critter in any of the above photos with any shot of Donald Trump and/or ANY fundy nutcase anywhere on the planet, and bang-zoom, process complete!😆

  2. Donald Trump, as quoted in the Christian Post article, when asked if he had ever sought forgiveness from God:

    “I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so. I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t.”

    He further explained, “When I drink my little wine – which is about the only wine I drink –and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed. I think in terms of ‘let’s go on and let’s make it right.'”

    WTF? I have never attended a service which did not include a confession of sin and request for forgiveness prior to the part where you get your wine and little cracker.

    • In the Catholic Church, the ‘Act of Contrition’ aka ‘Confession’, was/is considered a Sacrament, and, IIRC, had to be performed before one could partake of ‘Communion’, aka the ‘Sacrament of the Eucharist.’ My parents made us go to confession every Saturday, so that we would be able to take Communion at Sunday Mass.

      I had read that part, too, and cannot understand how these ‘christians’ can reconcile Trump’s total ignorance of what belonging to a religion entails. Obviously Trump cannot even remember that his ‘little wine’ and ‘little cracker’ is supposed to be representing the blood and body of Christ, and that the ceremony is called ‘Communion.’

      • No surprise the con man is attracted to the con men and women who espouse “prosperity gospel”.

      • Nice to know I’m not the only ‘recovering Ex-Catholic’ in the crowd.

    • “When I drink my little wine – which is about the only wine I drink –and have my little cracker…”

      Is that with, or without Cheeze-Whiz?

  3. So DrumpfTruck goes through the motions of taking the Eucharist, without penitence, without really, you know, meaning it. Who would be surprised that his flim flam also includes Gawd?

    • Eternal life? $1144 fee? Are you shittin’ me? I wouldn’t sign on for eternal life if they paid ME $1144 — or any amount, really. If I had to spend eternity in the imaginary heaven of wingnut evangelical Christers, that would be orders of magnitude worse than hell. Reality — die, bye — that works. And there is no charge.

      • They don’t call it “Charbucks” for nothing.

        You know you’re a bean junkie when you go to AA meetings for the coffee.

        • I have only attended one AA meeting and it seemed to me that most of the benefit was lost due to the extreme consumption of coffee and cigarettes.
