Welcome to Roger’s Take on Religion: An Inclusive Perspective
Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s running mate, has accused Donald Trump of “shadowboxing every last person on the planet.” Now, it seems, he’s taken on the universe as well.
Here are some late-night tweets from Mr. Trump regarding the suggestion in last week’s blog that he has driven God out of the Republican Party:
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – 1st God loves me this I know. He thinks I’m great.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – 2nd He’s jealous. I draw bigger crowds.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – 3rd I can’t support Him. I’m just not there yet.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – 4th Look at His record: war, famine, pestilence. I can fix all that.
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump – 5th So He lost a Son. I’ve made sacrifices too.
Here’s My Take: God, normally above the fray in political squabbles, has tweeted this response:
God @realCompassionateOne Let all arrogance cease. I am the God of all knowledge. By me alone will you be judged.*
