I will warn you that listening to Trump pretending to be religious is painful as are the numb nuns the vulgar materialist and sex abuser used as a prop during a speech. But listening to his "spiritual adviser" the pseudo-Christian Paula White is really painful. She is exactly the kind of person who I was talking about yesterday, who claims to preach Christianity while actually promoting a horrific materialist-pagan - in my opinion obviously Satanic - fraud which has made her mega rich. If this kind of thing is what the Constitutional "separation of church and state" the hands off of religion provisions can lead to, those need to be tuned so as to exclude such obvious frauds and phonies from the protection that prevents the suppression and criminalization of their rackets. I know that in the polite world of polite Christianity and the secular religion of Founders Fetishism such things are not supposed to be said but, really, look at her, listen to her con job, the exact opposite of the ministry of Jesus, the Gospel of Jesus, the practice of the early church as set down in Acts and the Epistles. She is no more Christian than any other successful con artist. Such things should not enjoy constitutional protection.
It is so disgusting, so damaging to the reputation of Christianity and religion that I think it is worth, by many times, the risks that might come with a constitution which allowed the suppression of this kind of thing, the removal of the name religion from it. If it would endanger the commercial properties of the richer churches and the means by which those have been gained, at least the Christian churches should never have been involved with those to start with. Christianity started and has always been supposed to be a church of the poor. Jesus said if you had money to give it away to people who wouldn't pay it back, to sell all you own and give the money to the poor. The extent to which we fail to do that is to fail to follow the Gospel. At the very least those who are supposed to be the experts in following the Gospel should make that attempt.
If you are worried that some judge, somewhere, some future Attorney General could use it to go after legitimate religious institutions, that is a risk which is theoretical, this attack on the reputation of Christianity, this tool of its enemies, including the con artists, is here and now. Giving it legal cover because the "founders" were too short-sighted, too dim or too inclined to pretend to write poetry to be specific has not worked in this instance. Enough people are damaged by such con jobs that it is certainly a duty to try to do something about it. As the story points out, a number of them have been investigated for crimes, already. But obviously the legal ability to stop this isn't sufficient.
I will say, specifically, Paula White's pseudo-Christian Pentecostalism is an example of what happens when you have a religious movement that has insufficient structure to prevent such an obvious phony opportunist from setting up shop under the name of their denomination. In the case of "Pentecostalism" it has gotten totally out of hand and I would say that large parts of the movement are, really, a Satanic materialistic sham and con job and have nothing to do with the Gospel of Jesus except as a closed set of pages for a con artist to wave around as a prop. Like the two that Trump was sworn in on. As Samantha Bee also said, that was two more books than he ever read in his life, something the estimable Seth Myers points out, too.
