And Now For Something Completely Provocative

As noted by The Reverend Richard Brand:

Trump Gives Evidence of Being An Atheist 

President Trump made a great effort to attract the evangelical Christian community, and he seemed to have succeeded. But it appears that the evidence suggests that he is really an atheist.

A. He showed absolutely no knowledge of the Bible.

B. When he went to the National Day of Prayer all he could talk about was his former TV show.

C. He has not attended worship since he has been in the White House nor has he attended services in Florida.

D. But most obviously he does not believe in Heaven or a final judgment as described in the New Testament as his budget is a complete attack on all the things that Jesus suggested will get you into heaven.

Martin Luther, the German Luther of the reformation, said that atheists were often closer to God than those who profess faith. So I am not suggesting anything negative about being an atheist. I am suggesting that one who has pretended to be such a devout Christian as Trump needs to be called out for what he really is.

I think this goes along with my post below.  I don't believe any of the Republicans in the House who will vote for any of their legislation really believes in any god except Mammon.

I will agree that there isn't anything wrong with some individual atheists.  But a majority materialist nation will inevitably produce fascist depravity and Bannon-Thiel style amoral nihilism.  There is nothing in materialism or atheism to wage either an internal or external struggle against selfish, egotistical narcissism with.  Politically, that failure has the gravest of consequences because without that which atheism lacks, triumph of the most ruthless and vicious and cruel is the eventual result.  And, don't fool yourself for a second, in such a world of amorality cruelty is a huge advantage in getting ahead and to the top.  Trump, Ryan, McConnell, and the man of the hour Neil Corsuch are good examples as is the Putin and every other materialistic despotic regime in history.   I can thin of at least a handful of sayings of Jesus that would support that contention.
