They literally turned him into a golden idol.

Christian conservative talking about the cognitive dissonance of other Christian conservatives while ironically being totally unaware of the cognitive dissonance required to be a Christian conservative in the first place…

The various layers of her cognitive dissonance doesn’t allow it.

Social media was a mistake & I am painfully aware of the irony of my comment.

I don’t often see “idolize” used in this sense. Refreshing.

I would like to see a golden Trump statue, like the calf.

See above, it already exists. It’s even been dubbed the “Golden Calf” statue.

Side note: it was fabricated in China because of course it fucking was.

She’s not that close. This is more like the stopped clock being right twice a day. Also, keep in mind what is going on in the conservative movement right now: trump is currently losing influence personally even as trumpism has completely overtaken the republican party. Calling out idolization of trump the person while believing everything he stood for is currently a relatively standard (but far from universal) position within the republican party.

Why does this video make me imagine Jesus preaching to the people with a fist on one hip and doing that neck move?

I feel like we are on the cusp of The Great Jettisoning whence the christofascists will launch Trump into the sun as they pivot to follow their next Dear Leader. Probably Death Santis. We’ll still be stuck with all of them, but it will be delicious to see the Trump Cabal finally go down in flames.

Why would you worship a “jealous god”? Makes no sense.

Obviously, you weren’t around during the reign of Holy Saint Reagan.
Anyway, they aren’t ‘conservatives’, they are Fascists.

Which makes you a christofascist.

‘Propagandist’ is more like it.

No thanks. I’ll pass.

Oh, the irony!

No god did that. The voters did.
I bet you think that god of yours put him in office.
No god did that, either.

Well, whattaya know!
So is You Know Who!
Christ, what assholes!

Nor does You Know Who!
I’m seeing a trend…

It’s a short step to go from ‘sent by god’ to ‘is god’.
Why are you surprised?

I wouldn’t give her much credit.

She’s a stopped clock.

I figured you were talking about this one:

But it’s a bull, not a calf

Same reason you’d marry a person who insisted on monogamy I suppose.

I’ve never been able to fathom why a god requires worship in the first place.

Why would an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent entity be jealous? He knows who the boss is.

Because all the other gods have cooler toys and more god friends.

Why would you obey a dictator who you don’t support and didn’t vote for?

That’s wonderful. But I was referring to the Gold Calf in the book of Exodus. Once Moses left the Hebrew people alone for, like a MINUTE, they reverted to idolatry and when he came down with the tablets, he found them worshiping a golden calf. That’s how I remember it, anyway.
