The chosen one? The new film that claims Trump's election was an act of God
Quote:
More than 1,000 US cinemas are screening The Trump Prophecy – which posits that God chose the philandering billionaire to restore America’s moral values


I recall a time when Republicans accused Democrats of viewing Obama as "The Chosen One" or a savior of some sort. We hoped he would lead us out of the mess George W. Bush had gotten us into(and he did) but there were never any religious overtones.

Republicans have gone totally off the deep end in their worship of Trump.

Quote:
The belief that Trump’s election was God’s divine will is shared by others. Franklin Graham, the prominent conservative evangelical, said last year that Trump’s victory was the result of divine intervention. “I could sense going across the country that God was going to do something this year. And I believe that at this election, God showed up,”


Yeah, God hates Mexicans, women, and queers and this is his way of showing it. He loves soaring debts and deficits as long as the rich get richer and the poor die in the streets.

didn't already proclaim himself as the Savior of America?

of course a movie would follow.

I thought the concept of God Kings had gone out of fashion with the Pharaohs. They've practically proclaimed him the Second Coming Of Jesus Christ.

Let the little children who come to me suffer.

The strangest thing is, apparently Trump never actually makes an appearance in the movie.
This film is Dominionist authoritarian theocracy claptrap taken to the next level.

It's a product of Liberty University. Jesus never actually makes an appearance either but they've been talking about his return for 2000 years.
Trump's ascendancy won't last nearly as long.

There have been many Christian prophecies over the centuries, all of them have been wrong. This one comes from the fevered dreams of an old man who heard voices in his head. Possibly a mini stroke, possibly a cry for attention, probably totally made up.
But Christians and Republicans share a certain gullibility.
