The Theocracy is Coming!

Now that Donald Trump has become President, how long before we begin to hear about The Impending Doom of the Inevitable Theocracy that is Supposed to be Right Around the Corner?

It’s a favorite feverish argument of the “skeptics” everytime a Republican becomes President.

    Correct me if I’m wrong (really — I’m not an American, and probably only know as much about American politics as … well … the average American, probably), but the whole “OMG! Theocracy!” thing seems like a 21st century phenomenon to me. When I think of overtly Christian presidents, I think of Carter — a Democrat. The undercurrent of Christophobia on the left seems like a recent development.

  2. Kevin says:

    It is fairly recent. For some reason the political left in this country excoriates Christianity for all the bigotries we are supposedly guilty of, yet abandons these principles to defend Islam from Christians – and Muslims are far worse toward the alleged victims of Christians.

    It’s not the violation of progressive values that makes them hate Christianity. They simply hate Christianity.

  3. Jakeithus says:

    The warnings about a theocracy will be coming in between criticisms of conservatives Christians for ignoring their religious principles in voting for a man clearly as immoral as Donald Trump. Good thing nobody ever expects the regressive left to be consistent.

    I am not from the US but i think that Trump won because he, with all is faults, seen to have more conviction and put a US first campaing.

  5. Peter says:

    I am not from the US either, but I think Trump won because he gave the middle finger to liberal pieties at every opportunity. Enough people were tired of being lectured to by the chattering classes that Mr. Trump won an election over it.

    The mediocracy did everything they could to make it shameful not to toe the liberal line in public and all that happened was large segments of the electorate dropped off their radar, but did turn up for the one poll that mattered.

    On this front, I truly believe Donald Trump serves no principles other than his own aggrandizement.

  7. TFBW says:

    Isn’t that pretty much par for the course in a modern presidential candidate, pennywit? I mean, you pretty much have to be an egomaniac to both want the job and have the resources to make success remotely feasible. I like Douglas Adams’ old quip from The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, “anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” You just tend to give the self-aggrandisement a bit of a pass if you’re sympathetic to the politics — or not if you aren’t.

  8. You think this would help clue them in on why the 2nd amendment was put in place…

    Hey BTW, what ever happened to the napkin thing? Was that settled or is it now in news limbo?

    When Ronald Reagan was elected, many people convinced themselves he wanted to start WWIII with the Soviet Union because he wanted to fulfill Revelation views of Armageddon.

  10. I’m still praying for the day that people don’t foolishly conflate theocracy with social conservatism.

    That day seems far off.

    Donald Trump, when asked if he had ever asked God for forgiveness:

    “I am not sure that I have…I just go on and try to do a better job from there…If I do something wrong, I think I just try to make it right…I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t…
    When we go into church — and when I drink my little wine, which is about the only wine I drink, and have my little cracker — I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness. I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed, OK?”

    Clearly this man is going to bring the dreaded theocracy upon us.
