Clement: God Raising Up Man to ‘Kill the Giant of Human Secularism’

Kim Clement, who hosts a show on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, delivered a weird diatribe on his show about God telling him that in the next week he will raise up a Godly man to “kill the giant of socialism” and “kill the giant of human secularism,” but he will battle Satan who is “doing everything in his power to put a witch in the White House.” Dude, you gotta stop listening to the voices in your head.

    kill the giant of human secularism

    Er, you mean secular humanism? Unless concern over non-human animals’ apparent lack of religiosity is a separate thing now…

    And the godly man becomes distracted by Cheetos, Beanbag chairs, and porn. I know because God told me.

    told his audience that this godly politician will come up against Satan, who is “doing everything in his power to put a witch in the White House” with a “Jezebel” spirit.

    Something tells me there was supposed to be a “B” in there somewhere that rhymes with “C” that stands for …

    That’s me! That’s me!

    I always knew God loved me best.

    his show about God telling him that in the next week he will raise up a Godly man to “kill the giant of socialism” and “kill the giant of human secularism,” but he will battle Satan who is “doing everything in his power to put a witch in the White House.”

    Translating this into Normalspeak English:

    The giant of socialism* is Obama when he isn’t being a Kenyan, Moslem terrorist or the antichrist. They never bother to keep their stories straight.

    The giant of human secularism. Hmmm, this is a tough one. It’s actually the Enlightenment and 3 centuries of Western civilization. Going to take more than a week to destroy our modern Hi Tech civilization.

    A witch in the white house. Easy, this is Hillary Clinton.

    Godly man Tea Party Christofascist. Last time god told 3 of them to run for president. They all lost. God has a wacky sense of human

    *Democracy isn’t mentioned in the bible despite it being a well known concept. Communism however is, in Acts among the early xians. With great approval. They don’t get their mythology right in the first place.

    “kill the giant of socialism”

    Um, doesn’t the bible say Jesus said everyone should sell their belongings and share the wealth with the poor?

    Is god going to kill himself again?

    There was a witch in the White House, Nancy Reagan used one to divine when St Ronald should act or nap.

    “doing everything in his power to put a witch in the White House.”

    I’ll take “shitty prophecy” for $1, Ed.

    He’s lining it up so he can say he predicted a Hillary Clinton presidency, if it happens.

    God telling him that in the next week he will raise up a Godly man

    Well, actually it was MIck Huckabee calling to tell him he’s going to announce his candidacy next week, but you gotta admit that that’s basically exactly the same thing.

    Sounds to me like he is advocating for armed rebellion. That used to be a very, very serious federal offense.

    busterggi “Um, doesn’t the bible say Jesus said everyone should sell their belongings and share the wealth with the poor?”

    No. Socialism is mandatory giving. Jesus was for voluntary giving. Socialism is authoritarian, and bad. God telling you to give everything away is voluntary, and Good.

    And also He was talking to someone else. Not you. Or His order was for the people of His time, not ours. So His order isn’t for us. In addition, there are many other ways you’re misinterpreting this, should you find this argument unconvincing.

    Ed reports:

    [Kim Clement] will battle Satan who is “doing everything in his power to put a witch in the White House.”

    Will this get traction inside the GOP for the 2016 presidential campaign just like the Obama birther conspiracy did? I doubt it, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see conservative Christians believe this BS at the rate they believed President Obama is not a natural born citizen if their tribes’ social dominators start promoting this meme.

    yet they have no remorse in leaving us victim to robot secularism.

    “Dude, you gotta stop listening to the voices in your head.”

    In light of the recent post about religion not being a mental illness, this comment seems a bit out of line. I have schizoaffective disorder and I’ve struggled with voices and delusions my whole life. The medication I now take has gotten rid of 95% of those voices. If we gave Kim Clement an antipsychotic, I doubt it would change his beliefs one bit.

    No it isn’t.

    It’s a common idiom for people making claims that aren’t grounded in reality. Which isn’t the same as mental illness.

    We don’t have access to people’s thoughts so we don’t know what is actually going through their heads.

    It could mean:

    1. Something I just made up and claimed that it came from god. Probably most religious claims.

    2. A feeling that god is speaking through me, self delusion, committment bias, intuition.

    3. Actual voices in someone’s head ascribed to the gods, demons, angels, or whatever.

    4. Full blown hallucinations where god appears waving a sword of light around and commands his chosen prophet to go forth and babble like a loon on xian TV.

    That’s my point exactly, Raven. The phrase has several possible meanings in which the average listener cannot rightly distinguish between an implication of mental illness or of religious delusion. The phrase clouds the issue rather than clarifying it.

    I haven’t (yet) clicked on the video – why is it that the still looks uncannily like a three year old having a tantrum?

    tweenkydee – ‘Fallacy of the excluded middle’. As I argued then, religious delusions (or any kind of delusional behaviour) could be a symptom of a mental illness. ‘Shoe horning’ symptoms isn’t necessarily clarifying either.

    A combination of Lithium and Klonipin would do Kim Clement a world of good. Maybe Risperidone, too, and an SSRI-based antidepressant. (With new cases, you gotta start off with a cocktail, and then work down.)
