Wikileaks released their hacked DNC messages exposing an effort by some in the Clinton campaign planning on smearing Bernie Sanders as a, yuck, atheist:
The Democratic National Committee – a supposedly neutral organisation – apparently hatched a plan to try and undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign against Hillary Clinton by getting someone to claim he was an atheist.
An email from May 2016 and sent from DNC CFO Brad Marshall suggested that they should “get someone to ask” Mr Sanders his views on religion.
“It might may no difference, but for KY and WVA can we get someone to ask his belief. Does he believe in a God. He had skated on saying he has a Jewish heritage. I think I read he is an atheist,” wrote Mr Marshall.
“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist.”
Set aside the complete appearance of impropriety between the DNC and Clinton’s campaign colluding to take out a candidate which has already resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schulz getting the ugly old (heave) ho. Who thought they’d ever see the day that Democrats would smear one of their own as an atheist?
Hey Bernie, if you really are an atheist, just run as a Republican. They have no problem nominating an atheist Democrat for President.
Er, excuse me…a “Baby Christian” I mean.
Dobson was vague about the details of Trump’s supposed religious conversion, telling Anthony that while he knows the person responsible for “leading” Trump to Jesus, he would not name the person and couldn’t specify the time or place. “I don’t know when it was,” said Dobson, “but it has not been long.”
Who, I ask, who can doubt the sincerity of a Road To Cleveland conversion to Christianity after worshiping at the altar of money and mail order pussy for 70 years?
“CT: Every president has called upon God at some point. Lincoln spoke of not being able to hold the office of the presidency without spending time on his knees. You have confessed that you are a Christian…
DT: And I have also won much evangelical support.
CT: Yes, I know that. You have said you never felt the need to ask for God’s forgiveness, and yet repentance for one’s sins is a precondition to salvation. I ask you the question Jesus asked of Peter: Who do you say He is?
DT: I will be asking for forgiveness, but hopefully I won’t have to be asking for much forgiveness…
As Hillary Clinton would say, “sigh“.
The bar for calling oneself a Christian is already pretty low. Believe Jesus Christ is the son of God or in the Holy Trinity or whatever and acknowledge your sins / ask for forgiveness as there was only one perfect person and they died on a big “T” over 2 corinthians ago. Maybe get baptized. Living as a Christian obviously being more difficult than just calling yourself one because you hate awkwardness at dinner parties.
But ferchrissakes, does nobody else talk about the elephant in the room? Because I see Daniel Plainview’s confession.
For the record, any casual reader of this site would know that I’m an atheist. I have no problem with electing one. I do have a problem with fakers and frauds lying about what they are to ingratiate themselves with a key voting demographic.
But again, who am I to judge the man who has read the Bible more than anyone?
Oh, that’s right. I’m exactly the person to judge because I’m Judgey McFuckinJudgerson. All it takes is some intrepid reporter to tug at this thread for a second and his unmitigated hubris will not allow him to be humble before any fake God or man. Like those rubes. Believe me.
I’m going to need these before November.
