Do NOT Impeach Donald Trump Or God’s Wrath Will Fall

Do NOT Impeach Donald Trump Or God’s Wrath Will Fall November 26, 2019

Above all, do not impeach Donald Trump. If Mr. Trump did it, then God wants it. Quit getting in God’s way or you will pay. Never forget: God gets to be vengeful, not you. Be quiet and learn to submit to the superior forces. 

Do NOT impeach Donald Trump or you will face God's judgment and wrath

* See note on my mental state at bottom of the page.

Currently, many small-minded people think President Donald Trump is most certainly guilty of various high crimes and misdemeanors.

Yes, so-called “evidence” points that way. But those who rush to judgment remain blind to the big picture. God has chosen Donald Trump for this exact time and place.

To impeach Donald Trump and deny this clear will of God will bring God’s wrath and vengeance down upon this nation and, especially, upon all who stand in opposition to The Chosen One.

But, some say, “How could God choose such a blatantly immoral liar to be the Holy Vessel to bring about God’s will upon earth?”

God’s morality is higher than human morality

In truth, God’s morality rises far above petty human morality. Picking an a-moral man like Mr. Trump makes perfect sense. This lack of any internal moral grounding or ethical ideals makes it far easier for the Mighty God to personally direct the brilliant, unsurpassed, and unsullied-by-human-learning-or-knowledge brain of Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump does not need to listen to any human experts because God communicates directly with him.

How do we know that? Because Mr. Trump says it. He openly acknowledges his position as the Chosen One, far exceeding any claims to special status that Jesus, whom many formerly accepted as the Chosen One, ever had.

Whatever Mr. Trump says, despite what small humans may interpret as misalignment with external realities, must be held to as absolute truth. Those who seek to hold Mr. Trump to such insignificant things as scientific fact or verifiable realities simply do not have the spiritual capacities to understand a mind and soul that so transcends our realities that it is able to so perfectly reflect the mind and will of the Infinite God, Creator of All.

Remember always, the Chosen One may look like he used threats to force a foreign nation to interfere in a domestic political situation, an action directly opposed to current US laws, but just because it looks this way and smells this way and can be verified as an intentional action DOES NOT MEAN that God didn’t want it.

If Mr. Trump does it, then God wants it

Above all, do not impeach Donald Trump. If Mr. Trump does it, then God wants it. Quit getting in God’s way or you will pay. Never forget: God gets to be vengeful, not you. Be quiet and learn to submit to the superior forces.

If Mr. Trump wants all brown people fleeing to the US to escape oppression, torture, and certain death, like Jesus’s parents did when they went to Egypt, to be locked out of our nation or locked into unheated or uncooled cages, separated from their children and without needs for basic human decency provided, then these acts, despite being totally unbiblical and without a shred of righteousness, MUST be seen as the new morality desired by the Holy God.

Biblical “truths” have no standing against the words and desires of The Chosen One. Quit trying to justify your criticisms of Mr. Trump by studying the Holy Writ. He has transcended such puerile writings.

Yes, you say we live in a democracy and thus are governed by agreed-upon laws. Democracy, shemocracy, you tiny-minded people. God has bigger plans for the US. We SHALL RISE AGAIN and this time, properly take over the world. But such greatness can only be accomplished by the leadership of the Chosen One, i.e., Donald Trump.

Again, do NOT impeach Donald Trump and thus thwart the will of God.

Democracy is too slow for God or the Chosen One

Elected democratic governments move far too slowly to reach such important, God-ordained goals. We need a brilliant, God-directed mind to move at lightning speed here. Silly human-created laws must be wiped away to let the Holy Genius of Mr. Trump cut through the muck of “laws” or procedure or judicial courts.

A new Gospel is emerging as this Messiah, this Chosen One, establishes his reign and prepares for his children—something Jesus never bothered with—to step into his place as the Scions, the heirs to the kingdom, our next royal rulers, groomed and ready for this task.

Do not hinder them or you will be guilty of hindering God—and you will face divine, and human, punishment. I promise you that. You will be very, very sorry you shook your fist in the face of God.

This “God is love” stuff is a bunch of hogwash. God has STANDARDS, you idiots. And they MUST be upheld, by force if necessary.

Face it: Mr. Trump must remain above and beyond any laws if He (and yes, we must start capitalizing pronouns when we refer to the Chosen One) is to fulfill God’s plan. Under Mr. Trump’s holy leadership, God will rule this nation and do so with an iron rod.

No more “alternate sexualities,” no more so-called “gender-fluidity,” no more funny-colored skins, no more reproductive “freedoms” for women. We are a WHITE, male-directed nation, and these men are meant to rule the world, possibly even the universe, while the [white] women happily produce as many [white] offspring as possible so we can keep perpetuating this God-ordered rule.

That’s Mr. Trump’s holy calling. That is our destiny. Quit getting in the way and let the genius rule.

*Note: I had a fever and chills when writing this–I trust the clarity of my argument was not compromised by my illness.

    I know of a few characters who’d probably try to say the above convincingly. Beleth, Ronove, Dantalion, Focalor…I’m sure the Goetia describes other malicious spirits like those.

  • JDale

    I have to call Poe on this. I’ve re-read it and I still can’t tell whether its serious or a parody. Regardless of which it is that in itself tells you just how many mindless cretins there are in America today.

    • Ocelot Aardvark

      It’s a parody.

    • Linda Coleman Allen

      It is satire and all too entirely accurate.

      • Linnea912

        The best satire reads like sincerity. The fact that so many people can’t tell which this is speaks volumes to Christy’s satirical skill.

  • What are the odds that the creator of all ~7,000,000,000 humans supports you to be President of the United States such that you should challenge the President in its name?

    There you have it: “God” is your opinion – nothing more.

    “God” has no sovereignty or power of its own.

    “God” just sits there and supports your political positions just like it just sits there and supports Trump supporters’ political positions.

      Poor faithless soul. Still, you have a better chance of entering the Kingdom of Heaven ahead of those false, vile, Harlot of Babylon, Evangelicals who still support, defend, condone and worship TЯ卐m₽-the-Beast.

  • Dorothy E. Nichols

    It is obviously satire–too much “overkill” to be serious, but too many will ignore the “disclaimer” note and believe every word. For them, the article will just reinforce what they already believe to be true and, unfortunately, follow the hate-filled rantings of some who claim to be pastors.

    • onlein

      Satire is extremely difficult to write well. And it can backfire. Yes, it can reinforce what is parodied. And reinforce hatred between those who get it and those who don’t get it. We need to take down the wall between Trump and No Trump. Not reinforce it.

  • I remember something from Old Testament studies, from when I was at seminary in a previous century… something about a nation becoming too proud, too sure of itself, too invested in its exalted leaders, and God having a “hand” in that nation being humbled, and brought down, and subjugated and enslaved, for its own ultimate good. What I can’t sort out, is at precisely what point in that tumultuous process a particular nation might be.

    Poor ol Christy… She tries so hard to be clever. Here, she blends her boiling feminism with suer-charged “Never Trumper”, then spiced by her failed-clergy bitterness into a pure baloney burrito. She wraps in fake satire, but I ain’t buying it! Of course, her kitchen is the ultra-liberal wing of the self-destructing UMC where the liberals there generally support grown men being able to walk into the restrooms where our daughters, our wives and mothers go for a “rest” and to address personal needs. That’s not satire, that’s just nuts!

    • Xavier de la Torre

      Her article is an apt description of many on your side of the fence. She’s not really trying.

        Thank you for your oh-so-accurate statement.

    • SteveWB

      I don’t think you know anything about ‘liberals’ apart from the foul propaganda you have been feeding on. It’s time to grow up. Turning a blind eye to the appalling ungodliness of Donald Trump is not going to help your nation recover from the mess he has created. A growing number of ‘conservatives’ and ‘evangelicals’ are saying that now. It’s not about silly labels – it’s about riight and wrong.

      • Max D. Plorable

        Polls show we deplorables are getting more determined and that independents are coming our way. Remember 2016? I do. Mine is not to judge Trump’s “godliness”, but record numbers of minorities are WORKING so three polls show his acceptance by blacks is in the mid-thirties. Stock market is up, consumer confidence, home sales – these are things of this world which help people like me live better. Thank God!

          A few Black men like Trumplethinskin—because he is a horndog.
          Black women despise him.
          And please cite these “three polls” you are talking about.
          I don’t think they exist.

          • Max D. Plorable

            Two polls, one by Emerson College and one from Rasmussen, put black support for Trump at or above 34 percent. Those soundings so alarmed Trump critics that a horrified CNN host described the two polls as “fake” and sarcastically suggested that only Kanye West and other black Trump surrogates had been surveyed.

            The Emerson poll showed 34.5 percent of black registered voters supported the president, up from 17.8 percent a month earlier. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 8.3 points. Rasmussen showed the president with 34 percent approval from blacks.

            I heard of the three on Fox News, but cannot find the third now. I think these two make the point. Anyway, Rasmussen polls are generally a blend of polls…
            You might also read current interviews with the owner of Black Entertainment TV. He thinks Trump can’t be beat.

          • fractal

            When you hear something like that from Fox News, you should contemplate why it is known as “Faux News”.
            And the owner of BETV is quite wealthy.

            OF COURSE he has wishful thinking; Corporate overlords are working hard to make nations obsolete; in a hundred years, if they have their way, we will all be serfs of competing International Conglomerates and no one will even take the concept of nations seriously.

            Links please.

            And truly, I have lived in the middle of an integrated city for 45 years; I simply don’t see nearly that much support for Trump among Black people.
            Sounds bogus to me; what kind of poll has that large of a margin of error?
            A badly designed one…

            I have taken statistics at University, and any poll can be skewed if badly designed.

            I would estimate that very few Black women support Trump, and about 20% of Black men do—usually the ones with no high school degree or intellectual curiosity, and a prison record.
            They like Trump because he is a woman-hating horn-dog.

      Let me tell you about trans-women in the bathrooms.

      First—your ilk would beat a trans-woman half to death, if she went into the men’s room; I think that is EXACTLY what you are hoping.

      I live in the big city.
      We have had trans-women in our bathrooms since the Seventies, that I know of.
      And they are more than welcome!
      They tend to be funny, kind and protective of other women.

      What I am way more afraid of, is those Butch Neanderthals who think it is their God-given mission to panty-check everyone. Way more rapists representing your ilk, than there are in the trans-community.

        I was being sarcastic. You only have to read the 1st and 2nd books of Kings to see clearly that most leaders of Israel and Judah failed to do what was right in God’s eyes. The claim that God puts rulers in place, in the sense that we should venerate such leaders, is theological nonsense.

        • Xavier de la Torre

          Ah ok. I stand corrected.

  • PedasiPaul

    I realize it’s satire, but it sounds so much like the actual arguments from Red State Christians.

    • Marc Wagner

      It sounds way too real to be satire. It certainly does not sound like it belongs in any Progressive Christian publication. Way too many readers are likely to accept this author as authentically expecting us to presume that God installed Donald Trump as the leader of the free world.

      • Wesley

        satire is meant to sound real outside the over-the-top language. sadly we here in America have lost this lost art. Christ even used satire in his ministry for he told a parable in Luke to emphasize the poor representation of God the jews were sharing with the world around them.

      as i was reading it i thought more and more it had to be satirical given the over-the-top chosen one terminology used. i would expect this to have appeared on the Babylon Bee site.

  • Ocelot Aardvark

    Dear Christy:

    If you’re not being facetious, then you most certainly meet the criteria of those deluded, perishing souls described in – 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12.

    I do hope your rant is sarcasm … but since 81% of Evangelicals went over to the Dark Side back in 2016, when they surrendered their souls and salvation to that utterly lawless, corrupt, treasonous, unrepentant, child-rapist,
    TЯ卐m₽-the-Beast … then it’s not too far fetched to perceive that you might be one of the deluded-beyond-redemption, vile MAGATs, who have put the Mark of the Beast in their own foreheads.

    If it isn’t already too late for those Harlot of Babylon, fake-christians, who dared allow the evil spirit of the Beast to replace the Holy Spirit of Christ in their hearts and minds, I challenge anyone, especially Evangelicals, who still support, defend, condone and worship TЯ卐m₽-the-Beast … whether, when you hear him speak, does he speak with the voice of our Good Shepherd? If not, then why are you still following the Beast? – John 10:27-30

    The 3 R’s:

    Renounce the Beast!
    Return to Christ!

    Otherwise, you’ll be cementing the Mark of the Beast in your own forehead, for all Eternity.
    Choose either Light and Life or Dark and Death …… Your choice, choose wisely.

    • Linda Coleman Allen

      Reverend Thomas is most certainly an expert on satire.

  • D D

    Ms. Thomas,
    While I too feel dismayed and reviled by
    the utterances of Mr. Trump, I have been
    instructed by the teachings of Jesus, and
    by all teachers who have attained a significant
    degree of Christ-consciousness, precisely
    what I am to do, what is the right and holy
    response to make, each and every time
    I see or hear a brother – any brother on
    the face of the earth, regardless of
    his race, his physical appearance, his
    character traits, his title or his social position —
    whose thoughts, words and deeds
    convey an ignorance of spiritual understanding,
    and a conspicuous absence of divine love,
    divine principle, and divine wisdom
    operating in his consciousness.

    We are instructed to do one thing only
    in all such situations… and it is not to mock,
    to ridicule, to persecute or to condemn;
    it is not to discharge our own confusion,
    embarrassment, anger and fear
    by plastering vile caricatures of his face
    all over the media or by making
    him the laughing stock of late night television;
    and it is not to write and publish sarcastic
    commentaries about him.

    If I am a Christian, it means that in face of every
    temptation to ridicule or vent my frustration
    in regard to another’s behavior, I ask what Jesus
    would do in my place. We all know His responses,
    don’t we? Of course we do. But it takes a deep
    desire to transcend the baser drives; it takes
    a commitment NOT to allow one’s instrument
    to be a channel of divisive, unloving expression,
    regardless of what the other guy is doing —
    regardless how atrocious his words,
    regardless how heinous his crime;
    it takes deliberate effort to CHOOSE the
    response Jesus asks us to make rather
    than to react at the ego-driven level.
    Jesus never said it would be easy.
    but that it IS the way to inner peace
    and healing, that it IS the way to
    be a fruitful instrument of God’s grace.

    Jesus also said that ‘strait is the way
    and narrow is the gate that leadeth
    unto life and few there be that find it.’
    And we can see quite easily why that is.
    Our inclination to let unholy motives
    express through our voices and our pens
    is very strong indeed. And so we give in and
    let old habits have their way with us,
    even though that keeps us down here
    at the battleground level and sooner
    or later makes us sick inside. And every time
    we follow our ego’s impulses, we do harm
    to ourselves:
    we shut out the flow of God’s love and compassion
    from our own heart, we shut out the flow God’s wisdom
    from our own mind, and we cut ourselves off
    from the flow of God’s grace.

    I pray that we may all remember that peace and harmony
    become evident an individual’s life and relationships
    to the degree that peace and harmony are already established
    that individual’s consciousness. And a follower of Christ is
    one who chooses above all things to do establish himself
    as a unified soul, to stay in communion with the Father within,
    to receive His wisdom in responding to all situations,
    to be a peacemaker and peacekeeper in this world,
    to be a forgiving, loving, compassionate, understanding soul,
    to be a dedicated instrument of the Holy Spirit.

    • Ocelot Aardvark

      If you ask what would Jesus do, then one only has to look at how our Lord and Savior treated the money changers in the Temple. One only has to remember the words of Christ in the Sermon on the Mount:

      “Do not give what is holy to dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine” – Matthew 7:6
      “Beware of false prophets and wolves in sheep’s clothing.” – Matthew 7:15

      Jesus said in Matthew 10:34-35

      “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
      For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother,
      and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”

      To stay silent, while your brothers and sisters make the fatal spiritual error of allowing the
      evil spirit of the Beast to replace the Holy Spirit of Christ in their hearts and minds,
      is tantamount to complicity in TЯ卐m₽’s crimes against God and humanity.

      Sarcasm is a great tool, and personally, I LOVE IT.

      We don’t all have to be sweetness and light as a default mode—how boring is that!

      The important thing is to be authentic, which this author certainly was.

      Check this song out by Dion:

    • Linda Coleman Allen

      Reverend Thomas is correct. No man is above the law. Her satire is brilliant if somewhat misunderstood.

  • All Christians should study the Bible so they can judge between true and false preachers, prophets and teachers. Sometimes God has used evil men to dole out punishment to nations that have gone too far. He has allowed them to wipe out human sacrifice from the face of the earth. But when a man says he is one of God’s representatives and does evil, we can know he is not from God.

    Jesus did stand up to the authorities of his day. He even said they were the children of the devil in John chapter 8. I believe this quote from Paul, in 2 Timothy 3, clearly shows the morals of the false Christians of this time:

    “But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!

      Progressives act as if Trump is arresting transgendered people or refusing to sell women birth control. Trump has worked to enact policies that benefit people of color, but progressives act as if he is planning to expel them or repress their rights.

      I have to conclude that progressives make stuff up and actually BELIEVE it. They fabricate the ideas of other people and then attack them based on straw man arguments. You can’t really have a conversation with people like that, because they like imaginary opponents rather than real people.

      • Ocelot Aardvark

          I said you leftists create strawman arguments, and you immediately create a strawman argument!

          “if he thought”

          How do you know what he is thinking. Find one statement he has made supporting your assertion.

          As for the events at the border, WE are paying big money to provide medical care and supplies for people who cross our borders illegally. In the meantime, we deny these services to our own citizens.

          If you want to buy toothpaste for illegal immigrants, then do it yourself and stop demanding everyone else pays for it.

            “If he thought” – we do not have to read his mind (such as it is), he tweets out his abominations every day – go read his twitter feed.

            As for the events at the border – children are dying under ICE’s “care”. They are denying flu shots to an incarcerated population who are not given sanitary living conditions – what do you think the logical result of that will be? Flu without treatment is deadly .

            I don’t get a flu shot and my workplace is a petri dish of germs. My recommendation is to take Vitamin D, Vitamin C, a good multivitamin and wash your hands as often as possible.

            There have been some flu deaths of children in ICE detention. What are the details? Did they arrive already ill? What was their general health and immunological condition? Were they malnourished?

            Personally, I think the border detention facilities are a great health risk to everyone, so we agree on that. It is my understanding that migrants cause a constant influx of tuberculosis, including the dangerous drug-resistant type.

            They are not catching it here. They are bringing it here and we are catching it from them.

            A person recently returned from Central America turned up at my workplace covered with chicken pox-like scabs. I asked what was wrong with her. I was told it was not chicken pox, but rather a Central American disease. Tell me, do I deserve to be exposed to a tropical disease to which I have no immunity in my workplace by people crossing the border illegally?

            Trump is right that we should require people to apply in Mexico, rather than creating overburdened facilities that result in the spread of disease.

            My Maternal Grandfather died in the 1918 flu epidemic.

            “I don’t get a flu shot and my workplace is a petri dish of germs”.
            Are you seriously comparing your workplace to an internment camp? Really? And your advice to take vitamins instead of a flu shot and to wash your hands often might be a little difficult for people who are stuck in a cage without adequate sanitary facilities.
            BTW – do you understand what I’m saying if I opine that you are a “good German”?

          • Anjasha Freed

            My maternal great-aunt died in the 1918 flu epidemic. Everyone was touched by that.

            In 1918, Woodrow Wilson’s government had enacted stringent censorship policies on our entire nation. He wanted us to fight in WWI and he did not want any criticism to get in the way of his recruitment efforts.

            When young men at military boot camp started getting a virulent flu, passing around and taking it home with them, Wilson enforced censorship of the news. He needed his cannon fodder.

            Because the public was kept ignorant, the flu was allowed to spread in an unsuspecting population.

            No flu shot was available at that time, but public awareness would have gone a long way to warning people to take precautions that were available.

            So, you and I agree that containment facilities like those at the border are ultimately unhealthy, encourage the spread of disease and release it into the general US population, just like WWI boot camps.

            Flu shots are not the answer. The answer is to require people to register in Mexico, so they do not have to be confined in expensive facilities that harm the US taxpayer’s physical and economic interests.

            If you want to explain your “good German” remark than feel free. I give up on trying to figure out every passive-agressive snark leveled at me.

      I am insulted, as a Canadian. Your comment is complete nonsense. You know nothing about Canadian politics or economics.

      If you are going to quote scripture then at least get it right, Money is not the root of all evil, it is the love of money

      • Max D. Plorable

        That is indeed a fine line, too fine for me to discern. That’s why I shop at Walmart: it saves both money and the money I love. So,it’s a two-fer! Great point.

      And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
      – Acts 2:44-45 (KJV)

      Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul;
      neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own,
      but they had all things in common.
      – Acts 4:32 (KJV)

        Honestly, I don’t understand the relevance of the sermon, but I’ll show up for the covered dish supper…

        • David Cohen

          Its okay, no one expects a Trump fan to grasp spiritual concerns beyond the level of the superficial and self-indulgent.

          • Max D. Plorable

            At least he is currently holding strong among evangelicals!

    This is one of the finest pieces of satire that I have ever read. Dr. Thomas clearly knows her stuff.

  • Incoherent satirical rant that probably unintentionally sumes up the entire Christian religion. In other words, why believe any ancient fairy tale?

    UPDATE: Uh-oh…
    some major polls this week have turned AGAINST impeachment. Now, pursuant to our discussion here, is this God’s Will, or could t be that the truth is finally getting through fake news and the people are seeing it?

    Dear Christians,

    Why are evangelical Christian apologists such as Michael Licona and Randall Rauser so hesitant to forthrightly and clearly express their belief in the testimony of the Holy Spirit when conversing with non-Christians? Is it because they are embarrassed to admit they believe that a (Holy) Spirit “dwells” within them, “testifying” truths to them, including the truth of the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus? Are they fearful to admit to such a belief because they know that non-Christians will see this as evidence of their inability to objectively evaluate historical evidence for this alleged event?

  • Jason Carpp

    Trump doesn’t deserve another term as President. He had no right to a first term as President. So why the Religious Right believe that Trump is God’s chosen one to run the country is beyond me.
