This Week in The Internet. God is a Trump Supporter.

“This week in the internet” – Where The Sofa shares some of the random things he’s come across in Christian Internet this week.

And it seems that God is a Trump supported. As in Donald… not as in fart… That would suggest that God is into toilet humour… which is something I wouldn’t be surprised about…

God Doesn’t Approve of Christian Leaders Who Criticize Trump

It seems that according to the American Pastors Network, God likes people who like Trump. According to The Right Wing Watch,

“What kind of a religious leader is the right kind of religious leader when he criticizes Donald Trump for standing for truth as has been given to us, and has stemmed from God himself in these unalienable rights?” asked Dull. “He’s not much of a religious leader from God’s perspective, would you agree?”

A Democratic president will lead to ‘martyrdom’???

I could be wrong, but are these people saying that if a Democratic President moves into The White House, then people will die??

A debate billed as a major showdown between competing visions of religious conservatism Thursday night revealed, more than anything, the profound fear that drives the “culture war” on the right: that Christians will face literal extermination at the hands of Democrats if Republicans lose power.

That’s not just a metaphor: One side, represented by a prominent Catholic journalist, warned, in apparent seriousness, of a future in which Christians are thrown to the lions, as in ancient Rome, with Bernie Sanders playing the role of the emperor Nero.

Trump Spiritual Adviser Paula White Gets Angry at Welfare

As well as preaching that the White House is holy ground dedicated “by the superior blood of Jesus”, Paula White has found space in her preach to include a rant against… well a welfare state…

In case you’re confused about who she is, welcome to Paula White – a spiritual advisor, and “unofficial advisor” to Donald Trump.

Christians Called to Join Militias?

Next up in the Jim Bakker Show, a pastor named Rick Joyner has urged Christians to begin to form militias in preparation for a coming civil war.

Be warned, the following clip may have a slight element of “finding a singular out of context Bible verse to try and make a point” about it.

This, is not the first time the topic of a Civil War has come up in the Jim Bakker Show. Its almost as if they want one?

Did you hear that Harry Potter is still evil?

St. Edward Catholic School in Nashville has said No to Harry Potter due to it containing “actual curses and spells”. From CBSNews.com

A Catholic school in Nashville, Tennessee has banned the “Harry Potter” series because a reverend at the school claims the books include both good and evil magic, as well as spells, which, if read by a human can conjure “evil spirits,” according to the Tennessean.

The publication obtained an email from Rev. Dan Reehil, a pastor at Saint Edwards Catholic School parish, which was sent to parents. In the email, Reehil explains in the email that he has consulted several exorcists in the U.S. and Rome, and it was recommended that the school remove the books, the Tennessean reports.

“These books present magic as both good and evil, which is not true, but in fact a clever deception,” Rev. Reehil said of the seven-part “Harry Potter” book series. “The curses and spells used in the books are actual curses and spells; which when read by a human being risk conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text,” the email continues.
