Hate Group Comes After “Cracker-Eating” Trump

As I noted last night, until very recently the talibangelicals have largely held their fire regarding the faith of Donald Trump. That began to change this week after Trump declared that “the law is the law” and that Kim Davis should look for another job. This morning the American Family Association comes after “cracker-eating” Trump with a denouncement conveniently provided by Texas Eagle Forum head Cathie Davis. They write:

“When I hear from Donald Trump’s own lips that he doesn’t want to do things that would cause him to ask for forgiveness or to repent, he is not acknowledging that there is a holy God,” Adams tells OneNewsNow. Adams was referring to Trump’s unusual comments at the Family Leadership Summit held in Iowa in July. The event’s moderator, Frank Luntz, asked the billionaire real estate mogul if he had ever asked for God’s forgiveness. “I’m not sure I have ever asked God’s forgiveness,” Trump, a Presbyterian, replied. “I don’t bring God into that picture.” Fox News commentator Kirsten Powers recently referred to Trump as an “evangelical scam artist” in a USA Today op-ed that recalled Trump’s “forgiveness” answer in Iowa. Powers, a Democrat, is a recent born-again convert to Christianity. “A Christian who has never sought forgiveness for his sins is like a vegan who has filet mignon for dinner every night,” Powers wrote. She also pointed out in the commentary that Trump, who claimed to be a churchgoer, failed to name his favorite Bible verse and called that question too “personal.” Adams says evangelicals need to weigh which presidential candidate aligns most closely with the Word of God, when they look at the field of candidates for the 2017 election.

Like I said yesterday, this is going to be fun. Also: 2017 election?

      Chickens Brothers, this is a hard one for us PoC to comment on since “crackers” are being discussed, even richer “cracker-eating”. Oh dear! Popcorn is due…

    At first I thought “cracker eating” was some kind of bizarre reference to white people.

    • Todd Allis

      Me too. Oh, was it in reference to communion?

        • Soren456

          You’re right. It’s this that they’re going after.

          We were Episcopal, so I don’t know Presbyterian Eucharist practices. The only time I had communion at a Presbyterian church (I was probably 12), it was served as grape juice and small bread cubes—the juice in tiny individual glasses, which we placed empty in a rack of holes attached to the back of the pew ahead of us.

          I suppose it could be little crackers (Wheat Thins?), but I doubt the wine.

          A campus minister at my school—really reaching the young people (LOL)—served Eucharist as potato chips and Coke.

          • RKitty01

            that’s just nasty to think about

          • nocadrummer

            Not nearly as nasty as the unsweetened Kool-Aid I was served for communion in a Baptist church when I was a teen. Being an Episcopalian, I nearly gagged*. REALLY?!? We had REAL (if not necessarily GOOD) wine for our services.

            *Yes, gagging is something we get over with practice. 😉

          • Bob M

            Yes, we Presbyterians usually do what you describe. We sometimes really do have wine and some may even use wafers or crackers as the Trump refers to them. I doubt he even attends on Christmas Eve or Easter, the big visitor days.

          • Amanda B. Rekendwith

            Silly pastor….Cheese Doodle Christ is the way to go for young people.

        • Max_1

          For someone who just had to brag to his audience that he goes to Church as often as possible because he feels cleansed… He sure couldn’t respect the ceremonial value this is intended to impart upon those that do, Religiously partake in Communion/Eucharist. He’s extremely disingenuous toward a lot of people yet to many of those groups Trump, somehow, is also charming.

    US Constitution, Article VI, 3rd Paragraph.

    • crewman

      Despite their loud and frequent statements to the contrary, they hate the Constitution. Just like they hate freedom. They want a theocracy, like Iran, but with their version of Christianity.

      • DesertSun59

        The US Constitution is 100% incompatible with a Christian theocracy as portrayed in the Bible. But it’s 100% compatible with the brand of corporate Christianity that corporations invented in the 30s as a response to the New Deal.

    They just found out Trump is not a fundyvangelical? How could that be? He has hidden it so well all these decades in the public eye.

      I think from their little insular fundie sanctuary cities, they have trouble understanding that there are non-RINO Republicans that are not evangelitrash.

    Trump would never ask anyone for forgiveness, let alone God, that would imply that he’d done something wrong, and in Donald’s mind, he’s incapable of error. To think otherwise is, er, unforgivable.

      • sequel

        But… she’s using cracker eater as an insult. I thought christians are supposed to eat crackers? Or is there some controversy over hard crackers vs soft bread? As a kid, our church fed me jewish-zombie bread, but could that really be all that different?

        • Chucktech

          Don’t ALL christians have this ritual? I actually thought they did, so what the fuck is she squawking about?

        • oikos

          Not sure you will find any logic in her statement. She is after all a Talibangelical.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      None other than the adjective referring to those who enjoy “Trader Joe’s Original Savory Thin Mini Crackers” (gluten free). Of course, this is my understanding. Context is SO important when dealing with the christianists.

    • CB

      Made me think of “cake sniffer,” the uniform put down in the children’s books “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” This is every bit as ridiculously juvenile.

    • In all seriousness, don’t accuse white people in pickup trucks in the Florida Panhandle with confederate flag bumper stickers of looking like they eat crackers. Not a healthy thing to do.

    “A Christian who has never sought forgiveness for his sins is like a vegan who has filet mignon for dinner every night,” Powers wrote.

    I am not a Christian but I frequently ask for forgiveness.

    First and foremost from my husband, who usually grants it with the understanding that I will clean the lint filter in the washing machine after I do a wash.

    Secondarily from my Maine Coon cat, with the understanding that in the event a nuclear catastrophe I will leave at least one week’s worth of her food out on the dining room floor.

    • Eric in Oakland

      Except that you’re not asking for forgiveness from an imaginary person for imaginary “sins.” Christians are required to believe they were born with “original sin” that can only be forgiven by a zombie.

      • another_steve

        “Christians are required to believe they were born with “original sin” that can only be forgiven by a zombie.”

      • another_steve

        Yes. This cat has a definite attitude.

        When she is perched on one of the forbidden spaces in the house and I call her out for it, she glares down at me as if to say, “I am regal and beautiful. You are old and flabby. Go away.”

        • Tor

          I know the feeling. My cat walks all over me when I try to sleep.

          • another_steve

            My belief is that when they do that, they are testing to see whether we’re still alive.

            Our deaths in our sleep would adversely affect their ability to be promptly fed the next morning.

          • William

            My cat sits at the end of the bed and waits. He can tell when I am waking up. Before I open my eyes, he walks up to my face and starts yelling for me to get my lazy ass out of bed, it’s feeding time.

          • Tor

            A different cat, now deceased, used to come sit on my bladder. Yes, I’m awake now.

      If a candidate is openly a secular humanist, that would be a major point in their favor: it shows they have values based firmly in the real world, rather than on the pronouncements of an invisible, “unfalsifiable” deity.

        Is it possible that Trump isn’t crazy enough to believe a guy wearing a dress can turn a cracker into the real flesh of Jesus? Holy shit! No wonder the talibangelical fingerfucker Duggarites are upset!

  • So, let me get this straight, he is being accused of being a cannibal of white people? Well, I suppose this does make some sense seeing how he feels about anyone that isn’t blindingly white.
