Magic: Christians put hands on Donald Trump to protect him from Satan.
In a bizarre display at the Midwest Vision and Values Pastors Leadership Conference in Cleveland earlier this week Christians put hands on Donald Trump to protect him from a “concentrated Satanic attack.”
The event, hosted by pro-Trump pastor Darrell Scott and co-hosted by Trump’s “liaison for Christian policy” Frank Amedia, was attended by religious leaders supporting Trump as well as Trump’s vice presidential running mate Mike Pence and campaign surrogates Ben Carson, Michael Cohen and Omarosa Manigault.
In a video, released by Right Wing Watch, Host Darrell Scott explains that a “nationally known” preacher warned Trump before he launched his campaign “that if you choose to run for president, there’s going to be a concentrated Satanic attack against you.”
He said there’s going to be a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you’ve never seen before and I’m watching it every day.
Scott’s wife, Belinda Scott, then proceeded to pray over Trump, as the other Christians placed their hands on Trump in a magic ceremony meant to ward off Satan and other demons.
Scott prayed, in part:
God we ask you right now that Your choice is this choice. God, I ask that you would touch this man, Donald J. Trump, give him the anointing to lead this nation.
Bottom line: Like much of the Trump campaign, the whole spectacle was a juvenile absurdity that is embarrassing to watch.
