Deranged White House evangelical blames ‘faithless’ for COVID-19

ONE of a posse of evangelical preachers invited by Trump to stalk the halls of the White House –  Ralph Drollinger, above, founder of Capitol Ministries – has a theory about COVID-19: its God’s wrath for allowing the ‘unfaithful’ to gain undue influence in America.

Drollinger, who has been leading a weekly Bible-study group for members of President Trump’s Cabinet, said in a long and  incomprehensible dollop of hogwash posted online:

There is only a small minority of individuals who are grossly disobedient to God. Unfortunately for the vast majority of faithful individuals in America, too many of the unfaithful have been allowed by the faithful to gain high positions of influence in our culture: high positions in our government, our educational system, our media and our entertainment industry. This is tragic, unfortunate, and costly.

Then the jackass flatly contradicts himself by gloating that the lunatics have taken over the asylum:

What is a great encouragement to me, ministering here in our nation’s capital, is witnessing the groundswell of faithful individuals who have been voted into office. If my calculations are correct, and I believe they are, there are more believers in Congress and the executive branch now than at any other time in modern American history!

And he predicted:

I think great days lie ahead for our country as more and more evangelicals rise in their influence  – you godly public servants – who are working so hard to deliver us from the consequential wrath we are undergoing as a nation due in large part to the misdirection of those who are rebuked by God’s forsaking wrath.

He also managed to shoehorn The Gays into his twaddle-laden word salad, well-seasoned with biblical quotes.

Investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald’s publication The Intercept said Drollinger’s:

Evangelical lessons are carefully catered to conservative ideology, with a focus on interpreting current events through a partisan lens.

The White House prayers sessions take place every Wednesday with members of Trump’s Cabinet, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Health Secretary Alex Azar.

Another 52 Republican lawmakers have taken part in Drollinger’s Capitol Hill Bible study.

UPDATE (March 28):

The White House yesterday (Thursday) condemned slammed Drollinger’s rant. Deputy White House press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement to The Hill:

These comments are disgusting and certainly not something the President believes. President Trump has no higher priority than the health and safety of all Americans, and ensuring we emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever before. The President does not attend this ‘Bible class’ and they are not held at the White House.

    If my calculations are correct, and I believe they are, there are more believers in Congress and the executive branch now than at any other time in modern American history! at any other time in modern American history!

    Funny how these scamvangelicals blame others for what they perceive as punishment from the evil babble gawd rather than regarding the weeds in their own gardens.

  • Raging Bee

    Trouble is, “political conservatism” has shown itself to be a fraud, which is why it’s been so easy for the evangelicals and other loony right extremists to hijack it and use it as a disguise/shield.

  • Broga

    He has the look of paranoid insanity; proven by his behaviour. Not the respectable paranoia which is open to treatment and is an illness. This is another kind which is the product of religion and is beyond help by any drug or therapy. This kind is dangerous, outside the reach of persuasion or reason or evidence. It is a fearsome phenomenon when it controls the most powerful government in the world. It smiles – look at him – as millions of good people are crushed under its superstitions.

  • David Rice

    “… individuals who are grossly disobedient to me.”

    Fixed it for him.

  • Jeff Crespo

    I can’t find the lie to what he’s saying. We all know Degenerates and heathens deserve this

  • BostonIrishCatholicSF

    I think this biological warfare virus is a sign that the idiots thar wanted a recession and kept saying we were in one when we weren’t is a tell!

    They put this together since the AntiChrist NWO Higher Consciousness has circumvented democracy with Mystery Religion Of Altered States Of Consciousness Mindfulness Yoga in all sectors of America on bigger lies than Trump and more danger!

    Those that think belief in God and salvation and the Bible are retarded just imagine how stupid the 7 levels of Consciousness and colors associated. 5 languages of love. Meyers Briggs personality test. Enneagram. Laws of Attraction, NLP, Pantheism, Panentheism, Paganism, Guided Visualization, Astral Projection, Calling Tantric Sex Magic energy healing REIKI. Pretending Aleister Crowley and Gerald Gardner’s Satanic Wicca is nature and that there is white magic like evil is good. Empaths, Light workers, Star Seeds, Indigo Kids, Clairsentinence, Clairvoyance, Clairaudience are Gifts or Powers or Skills they are Devils. Cursed. All this crap that is abomination against God so idiots can be sexual perverts and pretend they aren’t going to Hell. That is dumb and all these Liars like Jon Kabat-Zinn that is Zen Master opened up the Cambridge Zen Center and is in interviews saying he doesn’t know that much about Buddhism. He brags about deceiving everyone to get Zen Buddhism Seventh of Eightfold in K-12 public school, Healthcare etc. Never turned in negative harmful data in supposed research about Mindfulness that’s called Confirmation Bias not science UMass Professor Liar and Thich Nhat Hanh is his Master. So there is dirt on the old monk with the deception to push Satanic Occult Religion on unsuspecting Americans that weren’t informed for consent.
