Donald Trump: National Theologian

I don’t know how I missed this.  A little over a week ago, on Saturday, July 18, The Donald and his hair appeared at something called the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, where he participated in a Q&A session in which he was asked about his Christian faith, so-called.

His comments were quite the revelation.

On Church:

“People are so shocked when they find … out I am Protestant. I am Presbyterian. And I go to church and I love God and I love my church,” he said.

No one will be surprised to find that the churches this “staunch conservative” has attended all his life have been those associated with the PCUSA and the RCA (Robert Schuller’s denomination), both exemplars of mainline liberalism.

On Forgiveness:

“I am not sure I have (asked God for forgiveness). I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so,” he said. “I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t.”

Forgiveness?  Why would I need forgiveness?  I’M DONALD TRUMP!  I DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ FORGIVENESS!

On Communion:

“When I drink my little wine — which is about the only wine I drink — and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed,” he said. “I think in terms of ‘let’s go on and let’s make it right.’”

Gotta love the little cracker.  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
