Weekly Round Up

Every week sofa posts a collection of stuff that, well, he didn’t a chance to sit down and post during the week.

Well, I say every week – that doesn’t always happen…. but anyway.

This weeks round up is completed to the back drop of The Big Bang Theory.

To begin with, Donald Trump and his deep Christian faith..

Conservative MP Annoyed At Churches

So, according to Premier…

Derek Thomas, Conservative MP for St Ives, said although he’s happy churches can open for services on 4th July, Christians could have done more to lobby on the issue. 

“I am inwardly furious… that the Church… and I absolutely include myself… have not been noisy enough and working enough to make the case for churches and places of worship to open again,” he said.

Premier Christian

It would be nice that instead of being “furious”, that he was busy talking up the stuff the Church has been doing supporting people.

Meanwhile. Over In America.

When Premier Christianity Magazine Go Awesome.

Lastly.

Going into the next week.

With Some churches opening up. Others not. Lets try and play nice?

The Weekly Round Up

Every week, sofa posts a round up of stuff that didn’t make it to its own post. Considering some of the news from this week, I’m going to try and minimise my comment a little on the below.

On a light note – todays round up is being typed to the back drop of “The Odd Squad” from CBBC. (Thats right, not cbeebies, little sofa is growing up!)

Donald Trump and The Bible.

Well, in case you’ve missed it. Here’s a summery of what Donald did with the Bible.

I’m not in the habit of quoting The Bible Society, but they’ve not held back with that they think…

It’s not entirely clear what Mr Trump intended to convey by this photo-op, but it’s a disturbing image. Certainly he outraged the church’s bishop: Rt Revd Mariann Budde told CNN, ‘Let me be clear, the President just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus.’

It’s genuinely troubling to see the Bible being used as a prop – particularly when, as the bishop says, it’s associated with images of violence. Co-opting the Bible as a justification for repression is unacceptable.

… and you think you agree????

When Ivanka Trump joins in…

Sounds of Hope

Lets start somewhere?

Can I recommend this tweet?

In fact, how about clicking through to the above tweet, and give the suggestions a read.

Lets try and stay well, and look out for each other?

Please people?

The National Prayer Breakfast

Have you come across The National Prayer Breakfast in America? If you’re not sure, Wikipedia describes it as:

It is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a Christian organization. It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and pray together.

Baring the above in mind, Jimmy Kimmel has shown a comparison between Donald Trump, and President Obama at the Prayer Breakfast…

Subtle difference…

The MAGA Church

Well, this is from someone a little new. An American Conservative group called The Lincoln Project have released an Anti Trump advert…

…with “Trump Language” included. (Therefore not really kid friendly).
