Michele Bachmann, the “pastor to the United Nations,” obsesses over Israel like most Christian fundamentalists do and promotes the notion that if we don’t support anything they do, God will punish America. But she also says that if Trump pressures Israel over…anything…God will make sure he loses the 2020 election.
“The Bible is clear,” she said. “If anyone touches the boundaries of Israel, if anyone touches the land or seeks to divide the land, or if anyone touches Jerusalem or divides Jerusalem, that person or that nation also will be divided. There will be negative consequences … The scripture is very clear: If you divide the land or you put pressure on Israel to divide the people from the land or if you touch Jerusalem, there will be negative consequences. So if President Trump were to reveal a Middle East peace plan that divides the people from the land or pressures Israel or touches Jerusalem, I believe that that action could be sufficient to deny him a second term. It is that serious and that profound.”Bachmann said that recently “God opened a door of opportunity” for her to “be able to speak directly, one on one, with the highest leaders in our country on this particular issue,” and that she used the meeting to hand out copies of the book, “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel,” by William Koenig, an End Times author who asserts that God inevitably sends natural disasters to America as punishment for failing to stand with Israel.
Making sure Trump loses would hardly be a punishment on America, it would be — forgive the pun — a godsend. But here’s what has never made sense bout these claims that God put this or that person in power: How does God do that? In America, elections determine the winner. So if Trump loses in 2020, it will be because he got fewer votes or, given the electoral college, got them in the right states to win enough electoral votes. So either Trump is going to lose because he didn’t get enough, or the right, votes, or he’s gonna lose because God makes him lose. Does he change people’s minds for them? If not, he has no role to play at all. If so, whatever happened to that whole free will thing they use to explain away evil? It simply makes no sense.
