My Regular feature about random little things I’ve spotted online this week.
Something about Trump being Esther…
No Donald Trump has not had a sex change and started calling himself Esther! Well… I don’t think he has… Anyway, The Christian Broadcast Network has interviewed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during which… well…
He made the comments during an interview in Jerusalem with the Christian Broadcasting Network.
“As a Christian I certainly believe that’s possible,” Pompeo responded when asked whether Trump is a new Esther, who in the Bible convinced the king of Persia not to slaughter the Jewish people. ADVERTISEMENT
The CBN interview falls on Purim, a Jewish holiday that marks Esther’s story.
The CBN hosts in questioning Pompeo referred to Iran as the modern-day threat to the Jewish people. Trump last year withdrew the U.S. from the Iranian nuclear treaty and reimposed sanctions on the country.
A jug of beer was on hand to refill empty cups and the ‘sermon’ of sorts was given by an avid home-brewer named Joe, who lifted a pint into the air as he began to speak.
He said, “When we make and drink beer, we celebrate the grain and fine fruit of the field. We celebrate the miracle of hops, and the magic that is yeast.” Joe had my attention. I’d never heard a preacher extol the virtues of alcohol before.
He said, “When we make and drink beer, we also celebrate God’s creativity. God doesn’t make beer for us, but invites us to collaborate with him to make something new.”
