That Christians will finally come out of the shadows...because we are going to be shut up--permanently--if we're not careful. God says faith without works is dead. We have to do things, God has been standing with me, and I don't know about you, it's time for preachers like you [Bakker's guest], you've been doing it, to stand up and shout out!"

You can't really have a civil war when only 23 percent of the population actual like Trump.

If you idea of Christianity is hung on supporting a self serving liar and corrupt government then maybe you should rise up and be dealt with.
polls show 60% of the population are in support of Impeachment. At least a third of those who voted for him regret it and have turned

If Trump is impeached you get president Pence who would he even better for people like Bakker.

Let's just wait 'till 2018 then.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-normal-rules-of-politics-still-apply-to-trump-and-to-republicans-in-congress/amp/

If these results are a part of a larger trend, which they almost certainly are, then any republican president will simply be a sitting duck after that. Though, admittedly, Pence does seem intelligent enough to find a way to rule effectively, especially if democrats remain as disorganised as they are. But, if Trump is, somehow, still the President by then? No fucking way. He can't even get what he wants when his party controls the Congress. He would probably resign in frustration by then.

Most Christians are probably appalled by the Orange Clown and his depraved lifestyle and many divorces and infidelities, including the majority of Liberals that are Christians.

You have an excellent opportunity to do something now, down in Texas, in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Millions of people's are affected by Harvey, and need help, right now. Remember Matthew 25:34-36.

Yes, because all Christians are in support of a womanizing sociopathic narcissist. Civil war my ass. Still hoping that asshole gets impeached.

Fuck Trump for everything he's done (or hasn't done, rather) for Houston.

Also, I'm not dead or flooded out. Was finally able to return to work today. Hell, was finally able to get out of my area today. We were lucky. We only lost power a few times. Others weren't. Most of my friends workplaces are flooded or isolated, so they're waiting to see if they still have jobs. My grandma's apartments were flooded, and she's staying with us in the interim. Another family of friends were flooded out of the townhouse they just moved into, and are also staying with us. My roommate's grandmother (also living with us) has been cut off from her nursing service for a week. My brother's area didn't flood, but there was a chemical leak that was quickly cleaned up. Was cut off from my gf til last night.

In short, this was one hell of a disaster, I got lucky, and fuck Joel Olsteen.

It will be a quick war. Even a lot of Trump's supporters think he's an idiot.

Good luck. I have a relative with wife and kids that stocked up and was OK in Houston, but isolated by impassable roads. I haven't heard from him today so far.

A lot of these preachers were calling Obama the anti-christ, yet The Orange Snowflake resembles that very creature.

Congratulations Jimmy, you have officially become a follower of that being your ilk fears.

Question: Why doesn't your 'God' just erase any & all of your 'Emprah's enemies?!

Has Wiggy repented of his sins, and become 'Born Again'? Would you support a president who is Catholic? Or an Atheist...?!

9/1/2017 7:50:27 AM

conscience

And when that doesn't happen? I mean your civil war won't last. And some won't fight.


And what about Trump? He has not repented. He has shown your side is A-OK throwing your beliefs and dogma away for convenience. Fuck off Bakker. You were never relevant and only lost relevancy

Nobody is willing to die for Trump. Nobody.

Almost nobody voted for the screaming shitgibbon because of who he is. They voted for him because of what he's not. A representative of the existing political system.

yeah, when you guys can make up your minds on these two rules, get back to me.

Oh yeah, great, die for your shitgibbon.

I believe that if Trump gets impeached it won't be the democrats behind it. No it will be because the republicans can no longer control him. I know Pence is a Catholic but he's a Catholic in name only since he's much closer to an evangelical in his beliefs. He would give people like Bakker everything they want.

Trump has a 23% 35% approval rating. [Thank you for the correction, Creativerealms. It might have been wishful thinking on my part, but I think I mistook it for a number I recently read of people who'd support Trump regardless of circumstance. I should have checked before supplying a number. My apologies.]

About half of them would be unfit for active service in the rebel army. The ones who are left...most would need basic training.

Then you’d gather your weapon stockpiles and ready yourself for a few weeks of war before the US government shoots all self-identified rebels, with prejudice, then end what would become known as a Civil Folly by hanging rebel leaders.

…or, more likely, very few of that 23% number would bet their lives on any political personage. It's all sound and fury signifying stupidity.

9/1/2017 2:05:07 PM

creativerealms

@ The Angry Dybbuk

Where did you find that. I just checked and his rating is still 35%. That is still terrible for someone six months in but ten percent higher then you claim.

If Trump gets impeached it'll be Pence, and Pence actually is a Christian fundie.

9/1/2017 4:29:54 PM

Not all the far right Christians or the Evangelists are behind Trump. Just most the Fear/Hate Gospel and Prosperity Gospel groups. And all the grifters.

Remember, this Bakker was selling freeze dried food buckets because "Hillary is going to lead America to ruin, Trump's our only hope" until Trump won, then he immediately switched to "The Liberals are gonna riot and destroy everything, better stock up on powdered food!" This bastard would love an unstable society to sell his shit.

His followers actually believe end times are coming, the systems going to fail, riots will abound, but their still gonna have water on tap, hydro and satellite tv.

Well, I'll tell you what. I'm going to predict that if it [President Trump's impeachment] happens...there's going to be a civil war in the United States of America.

Fap, fap, fap...

Which one's Bakker again? I know he's a televangelist , but is he the convicted embezzler or the homosexual or the cokehead or the child-molester or the one with five mistresses? I get them mixed up sometimes.

@heleninedinburgh
the child-molester

Which child-molester? There's quite a few of them in those circles (Duggar, DJS etc.)
