‘Angry political toady’ Franklin Graham is an ‘abomination’ to Christianity: Former Bush speechwriter

Published

on

Conservative columnist Michael Gerson, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, has taken a hammer to the Rev. Franklin Graham’s call for Christians to pray for President Donald Trump to defeat his political enemies.

Writing in the Washington Post, Gerson said that Graham has completely warped and twisted Christian teachings and filtered them through the very narrow lens of personal politics.

“In Graham, we are seeing God in the hands of an angry political toady,” he wrote. “Offended by the views and tactics of Trump’s opponents, Graham decided to play his ultimate trump card: calling for God to intervene on one side of a political and cultural struggle.”

He then went on to describe Graham’s theological view that he could personally call on God to help the president win the 2020 election “an absurdity and an abomination” that completely contradicts Christian teaching.

“Graham has become a prophet in exact reverse,” he argued. “Instead of calling out Trump’s cruelty and poor character, he excuses them. Instead of confronting corruption, Graham blesses it. His message reveals nothing about God’s priorities and everything about his own. He has found his pearl of great price — the political welfare of Trump — and has sold everything else to buy it.”

Nikki Haley busted by Civil War historian after claiming the Confederate flag was once a symbol of ‘heritage’

Published

Former South Carolina Governor and Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley on Friday stirred controversy when she claimed that the Confederate flag was once a noble symbol that only lost legitimacy once it was "hijacked" by a mass murderer.

During an interview with talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley described how she reacted after white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

"Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag," she said, referring to Roof. "And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don't have hateful people in South Carolina -- there's always the small minority, that's always going to be there -- but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it."

Conservative stunned Trump is allowing Giuliani to create more evidence against him

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Jennifer Rubin was appalled -- but not surprised -- that Donald Trump is turning a blind eye to the fact that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is overseas trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden despite the fact that the president is facing impeachment for exactly that abuse of power.

As Rubin puts it under a headline, "Trump creates evidence faster than the House can draft impeachment articles." Rubin first notes that the President has been conducting government business on unsecured lines, writing, "President Trump in the 2016 race made one argument against Hillary Clinton more than any other: Her sloppy handling of emails using a private server disqualified her from holding office. Someone that negligent with U.S. security could not be trusted."
