    As one follows the news, there is hardly a day goes by without some Christian pastor or televangelist promoting the big lie that Biden stole the election. Pastor Greg Locke, head of the Baptist Global Vision Bible Church in Juliet, Tennessee, in his latest tirade called Biden a "fake president" during his Sunday service. As Newsweek reports: "He stole the election. I believe that until the day I die. I don't give two flips and a wooden nickel what anybody thinks about it. I don't care what you say about me. He's a liar, and a robber and a thief and a crook," Locke told his cheering supporters.

    So much for the separation of church and state.

    Pastor Greg Locke is only one voice of many. On January 5th, a group of Christians participated in the "Jerico March" on Washington DC. From the Religious News Service:

    "A throng of religious supporters of President Donald Trump swathed in red, white and blue kicked off a “Jericho March” on Tuesday (Jan. 5), marching around the U.S. Capitol in imitation of the biblical account of Israelites besieging the city of Jericho in the Book of Joshua. Others wore “Make America Great Again” hats, waved flags featuring Trump’s name in giant block letters, held signs emblazoned with slogans such as “Donald v. Goliath” and brandished cardboard cutouts of the president’s face. As they marched, some spread their arms wide and closed their eyes as the mostly maskless group belted out a contemporary Christian hymn: “How Great Is Our God.”

    "Fusing faith, nationalism and fervent Trump fandom, the event served as the religious expression of a broader conservative protest taking place in Washington this week, in which conservatives are voicing opposition to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory by espousing unfounded conspiracy theories about voter fraud."

    ===========================================

    According to a Reuters poll, over 50 percent of Republicans believe the BIG LIE. And the Christian evangelicals make up a sizable portion of that belief.

    I acknowledge, however, that many Christians do not profess to believe in Trump or the BIG LIE. They should speak out more and not let a vocal minority control the bully pulpit.

    Here's another from Newsweek today: Pastor Robin Bullock Says It's a Sin to Recognize Joe Biden as President

    Bullock co-founded Youth Force Ministries Church International and hosts the weekly "prophetic" YouTube program The Eleventh Hour.

    Quoting Bullock: "You can pray for a man named Joe Biden. You should. No, no, don't get off in hate. You should pray. Okay?" he began. "You can pray for the office of the president. But you cannot pray for President Joe Biden, because you might as well pray for the Easter Bunny, because he don't exist."

    "And there's no anointing," he said of Biden's office. "And if you celebrate it or congratulate him, you've entered into his sin."

    "Joe Biden is not the legitimate president," Bullock said in an April 20 YouTube livestream for The Eleventh Hour. "He is a jackal sitting in the White House seat." Bullock has called Biden "dangerous to America."

    ====================================

    Just another "sermon" from the bully pulpit to his congregation.

    I guess all the "crazy's" are coming out of the woodwork lately. Only inAmerica! No wonder that this country is now the laughing stock of the world. I notice everywhere that the mentality has changed; yesterday I saw an SUV with big stickers all over it, with "Trump for 2024" on it and an red Trump hat on the dashboard. How sick can you get!

    Like I've said a million times; how is it possible even for Biden to stay "normal" with all these idiots around who do torpedo him.

    Sorry to say, that this country is doomed if it continues this way.

    They know what's important to their base and they manipulate it constantly. I think Dems and Independates should make it a strong point. Your mashed potatoes look good except for those large dark spots. Are those insects ? Lies should be bashed 95% of the time. Question the church's acceptance because it's accross the grain from their teaching and their rules. If you raise and lower your standards based on who's doing it..... You're aiding and abetting.
