Trump’s Re-Election Campaign Gets Kicked Off The Right Way “In The Name of Jesus Christ”
President Trump has officially launched his reelection campaign and it looks like he may be starting things in the proper way, with God.
The President’s spiritual advisor led a prayer for the President and the campaign attacking evil itself.
According to The Hill,
President Trump‘s spiritual adviser, Paula White, said in the opening prayer before his campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Fla., on Tuesday that “demonic networks” have aligned themselves against the president.
“Let every demonic network that has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling of President Trump, let it be broken, let it be torn down in the name of Jesus,” she said to a crowd of Trump’s supporters before his rally began Tuesday.
“I declare that President Trump will overcome every strategy from hell and every strategy from the enemy,” she added, according to video of her remarks.
“I secure his calling, I secure his purpose, I secure his family, and we secure victory in the name which is above every name … the name of Jesus Christ,” she said ending her prayer.
Of course, this ticked off the God-haters out there. It triggered the Freedom From Religion Foundations to speak up and condemn mentioned God and praying.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, one of the left’s attack dogs against Christianity in the public square, writes this in its “State/Church FAQ” online section: “It is inappropriate for public officials — many of whom have tax-paid positions and all of whom take an oath to uphold secular constitutions — to schedule prayer at government functions, or open government meetings with prayer and religious ritual.”
The FFRF then goes on to advise that despite the fact the Supreme Court has found otherwise — has, in the minds of the atheist group, “issued two unhelpful decisions about prayer at legislative meetings” — those who hate God can “still complain when you encounter government prayer.”
Well, to be fair, the FFRF didn’t exactly direct its advisement toward “those who hate God.” That’s simply implied.
But the FFRF isn’t the only one out there waiting to pounce for the crime of mentioning Jesus in public. The American Civil Liberties Union has had its share of similar legal battles; the vicious Mikey Weinstein with the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has had even more. (WaPo)
