Salon: You Can’t be a Christian if You Voted for Trump

So, if you’re a Christian you have to support your own impoverishment and the genocide of your race.

The attractive woman who wrote this piece is named Lily Burana.

Although Lily makes some sort of vague claim to being a Christian, it’s clear that her version of Christianity is the Marxist kind of universalism that trumps (play on words there) true Christianity in the minds of leftists like her.

Salon

One of the hallmarks of Christian faith is charity, which is unfortunate for me, because, as a cradle Christian (and, lately, a recovering agnostic), I’ve been feeling less than charitable since Donald Trump won the presidential election. I don’t mean that I’m not in the spirit of giving to charities — I’ll be writing out a whopper of a check to the American Civil Liberties Union presently.

I am, however, having trouble giving the gift of slack to Christians who voted for Trump. According to a preliminary study of exit poll data by Pew Research Group, Trump won 52 percent of the Catholic vote, 58 percent of the Protestant vote, and, broken down further by race, a whopping 81 percent of the white evangelical Christian vote.

If you’re a Christian who voted for Trump, I understand your concerns — jobs, the economy, health care, national security, frustration with the political status quo. What I don’t understand is your heart. All factors considered, were Trump’s calls for massive deportation of immigrants, along with his anti-Semitic dog whistling, racist commentary, documented history of misogyny and his mocking of the vulnerable, worth overlooking in favor of his shaky promises to make things better in your world? If, as Christians, we’re supposed to love our neighbor, a vote for Trump seems a little suspect. Am I wrong? If so, tell me how.

When asked whether he thought his incendiary campaign rhetoric had gone too far, Trump responded, “No. I won.” What a guy. Now he’s staffing up with his own (unqualified) family and a website publisher who’s been accused of beating his wife and channeling white-supremacist ideology. In the space of two weeks, it feels as if we’ve shifted from a democracy to a triage center. Jesus wept.

Not all Christians were pro-Trump, of course. My sister, who has been a Presbyterian minister for almost 30 years, texted me when she found out in the wee morning hours of Nov. 9 that Trump had won, “God help us.” The New York Times feature last Sunday on post-election sermons features more than one pastor in clear distress. Minister Mihee Kim-Kort wrote on her blog, “We lost something on November 9th. More than an election. Something – call it humanity, compassion, hope – faltered and perished, and something in me, too.”

If it reassures me, perhaps it’s similarly comforting to nonreligious folk to know that while some Christians see Trump as America’s Great White Hope, the rest of us see an Anglo-Saxon pharisee with a spray tan. The fantastic tweet stream of the Rev. Broderick Greer, an Episcopalian priest, is a glorious model of righteous fire: “If it’s not good news for refugees, LGBTQ folks, and women — and people living at all of those intersections — it’s not the gospel of Jesus,” reads one tweet. Another declares, “To plaster ‘Jesus’ on heterosexism, sexism, racism, classism, militarism, or transantagonism is to betray all that he did and is.”

How do these people get so screwed up? It always mystifies me.

Since I am not an expert on the Bible, the book that offers Christians some knowledge of God, I’m the last person to try to refute the kind of thinking that Ms. Burana exhibits in this piece (there’s a lot more in her article). But I’ll take a crack at it.

The simplest argument to make is that there’s nothing in religious law or natural law that says we must gladly participate in our own extermination.

Burana obviously believes that thousands of years of human history can be ignored. Leftists will perfect mankind so that we will all live together, black, white, brown, yellow, red, in harmony. Like in a Coke commericial.

Burana is more deluded than evil. But her good intentions will push the world toward evil outcomes.

The urge to be with those like us is inborn and not susceptible to being changed by leftist poopaganda, like that silly Coke commercial from decades ago.

Maybe Burana has a nonwhite boyfriend or husband. Maybe she thinks she would be doing a public service by popping out mixed race sprogs. I don’t know. But if she had ever talked to mixed race college students like I did at the university, she would know that mixed race people are not happy people. Their unhappiness is not created by so-called racism toward them, but rather it’s internal.

If she read the academic literature on diversity, she would know that diversity creates horrible stress and leads to isolation from others.

The Bible says “Love thy neighbor.” Well, the African is not my neighbor, even if he travels from Nigeria, enters my country, is legalized, and moves in next door.

The person next door is not my neighbor. My neighbors are those who are like me. The “neighbor” in today’s world is often a stranger.

If diversity is so good, why does it have to be forced upon people at the point of a gun?

As Donald Trump has said, (approximate quote): If you don’t have borders you don’t have a country.

Lily Burana does not want a country. She wants a fantasy.

  1. In 1 Timothy 5:8 (KJV) God tells us that “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”

  2. So the people who hated and destroyed Christianity are telling everyone how to be Christian? Why do they feign Christianity when it suits them- isn’t that un-Christian?

      • Since when is a leftist mouthpiece like Salon and it’s ilk experts on who is a Christian and who is not?

        You’re probably right PJ, most of the mainstream alleged Christian churches here in Jew England are glorified UU debating societies in drag.

        Years ago I was urged to attend a UU service, so I went to a couple of their services and during coffee hour when the lesbian wiccan priestess pastor asked if there were any questions regarding their church, I asked “yes one question. Is this the church that follows the 10 suggestions?”

        I was shown the door rather quickly🙂

        Most churches here proudly display the BlackLiesFecalMatter banner, rainbow flag and some now display islam/isis flag. ……I pass them keep walking and do not look back

  3. I stopped looking at her vomit after this sentence, which was very early on…..
    ” I’ll be writing out a whopper of a check to the American Civil Liberties Union presently.”
    Does she think that the ACLU is in any way Christian? It is a Jewish hate group which loathes Christians and hates white people, except for AshenNazis..
    Why would anyone think that the ACLU is a charity? It should be listed as a terrorist and subversive organization, not a tax deducible charity.
    There is no charity in the hearts of the ACLU.

    • I’ve known for 50 years that the ACLU is anything but Christian. My Dad used to claim hey are a Jewish anti-American the group’; right on target Dad! The ACLU belongs in the same dumpster as SPLC, BLM, ADL, JDL People for the American Way, and any front group created and funded by george soros

      They are expert at wrapping their evil in the purple robes of humanitarian charity for the poor and downtrodden, yadda yadda
      yadda

  4. As is often – no, make that always – the case with the loony left, the truth is 180 degrees opposite of what they postulate. No Christian could vote for that antiChrist killary ; the only vote we had was for the Donald, whether or not we agreed with him otherwise. [tho naturally, any Christian would agree with most of what he said…]
    As has been said above, we are to take care of our own. This is Biblical. The Bible is also very clear on separation of the races. Very clear.
    I could go on.
    Naturally, the author of this drivel is not a Christian in any form or fashion. Nor is her sister ; the Bible is very specific about women in the church. NO woman is a minister/pastor/whatever term you choose Biblically. Period. And actually Mr [miss?] Greer, that is EXACTLY Jesus ; His Word says that sexual perverts are an abomination to God and should be executed. Gods words, not mine. He also says that we are to have a nation, a people, and that we are to protect and defend. And who on earth ever said Jesus or Mr Trump was against women?!?!? Seems to me he’s pretty pro-female… 🙂
    Any time the left doesnt get its way and the impetus behind their defeat has even the slightest tinge of morality or whiteness behind it, [[[ they]]] immediately go into overdrive, suddenly preaching to us their misguided, intentionally incorrect version of ‘Christianity’ based on false interpretation of snippets of one or two verses in the Word. They, including this piece of garbage scribbling the screed given in the post above, care not a whit about Christianity, God Almighty, Jesus nor His Word. They are totally unfamiliar with it, and despise its truth. And Lily, I could indeed explain it to you, but not only are you obviously not interested in Truth, but returning to the Bible, it advises us not to cast pearls before swine…

    • My grandmother on my father’s side attended a small concrete block church several times a week. She played the upright piano they had there. She also spent several hours a day reading her Bible. She avoided all types of anti-Christians and their thinking. When the writer of this piece is able to do what my grandmother did, then she might have a right to speak. As it is, she has zero credibility.

  5. THE CULTS OF DEATH:

    MOSES WAS A WAR CRIMINAL
    We often hear people say, “If only Jews would return to the Law of Moses!
    “Instead, they follow their secular, atheistic, and Zionist ways!”
    They express horror at the recent deliberate slaughter of Gazans, particularly the slaughter of women and children. (1)
    But haven’t these folks ever read the Jewish Bible? Are they unaware of the influence of the Old Testament on Judaism?
    Please open your Jewish Bible. Turn to the Old Testament. For the moment, focus your attention on the Book of Numbers.
    You are about to learn that Moses, the great “law giver,” was a war criminal who ORDERED his followers to commit war crimes. The most heinous were crimes were committed against women and children.
    NUMBERS 31:13-18:
    (13) Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp.
    (14) But Moses was furious with all the generals and captains who had returned from the battle.
    (15) “Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded.
    (16) “These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the Lord at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the Lord’s people.
    (17) So kill all the boys and all the women who have had intercourse with a man.
    ( 18 ) Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.
    The rest of Chapter 31 is concerned with distributing the Midianite plunder. Thirty-two thousand (32,000) virgin girls were counted in the booty (Verse 35). Thirty-two of these were given to “the Lord.” That is, 32 of these little girls were set aside for the Levities (heave offerings), to be used as concubines (Verses 40 and 41).

    Yes, Numbers 31 says what it says. The Talmud sages used Numbers 31 to justify having sex with children. And since the Talmud sages, along with Christians, regard the Old Testament as “the word of God,” why beat up on the Talmud sages? Why not beat up on Jehovah and Moses, who set the standards?

    For further discussion of Jewish teachings on sex with children, see the Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Yebamoth 60b, Soncino 1961 Edition, page 402. Discussion and links at http://www.come-and-hear.com/editor/america_2.html

    It’s true. Moses was a war criminal. The Jewish Bible tells you so. Should we be surprised at how women and children were treated in Gaza?

    TORAH JESUS ENDORSES TORAH
    For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.
    Matthew 5:18

    JESUS ENDORSED MOSES THE RAPINE MURDERER:
    “Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, in whom you have put your hope. 46 If you had believed Moses, you would believe Me, because he wrote about Me. 47But since you do not believe what he wrote, how will you believe what I say?”…
    John 5:45 47

    MUHAMMAD:THE PROPHET LIKE UNTO MOSES

    WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PROPHET LIKE UNTO MOSES:

    MUHAMMAD WAS A WAR CRIMINAL

    VIOLENCE IN THE QURAN:

    Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

    Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

    Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.

    Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

    • This is exactly right. Anyone who reads the OT with even a little intelligence can see the murderous, self righteousness of the jews who insist they are the “chosen ones.” This leaves them free to rape and murder and steal from all others. Gentiles. Their goal is the extermination of the White, “gentile” race and they are using all mud races to do it for them, including muslims.

      • LuckylarrySilverstein, It is wisely said that lucky people make their own luck. Taking out that terrorist insurance on your 99 year lease was a stroke of genius and amazing good timing. Very lucky! Bad luck the old buildings full of asbestos were destroyed by Muslims who hate your kind. Those Saudis made you a lucky $4 billion in quick cash. The Chinese were helpful too in removing all the evidence to a foreign Communist nation.
        Naturally the USA invaded Iraq and Afghanistan who both had nothing to do with your lucky insurance claim.
        Good luck about your dentist appointment also. Thousands of Jews had appointments at 9 a.m that day. Lucky tribe!

      • Yes, the tribes were lucky they were just kicked out of 109 countries for the past 3,000 years, instead of exterminated. Let’s hope their “luck” runs out soon.

  6. God separated out race and species according to “Their Kind”

    Genesis 1:21
    And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, AFTER THEIR KIND, and every winged fowl AFTER HIS KIND: and God saw that it was good.

    Genesis 1:24 – 25
    “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature AFTER HIS KIND, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth AFTER HIS KIND: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth AFTER HIS KIND, and cattle AFTER THEIR KIND, and everything that creepeth upon the earth AFTER HIS KIND: and God saw that IT WAS GOOD.”

    Genesis 1:27
    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; MALE AND FEMALE created he them.

    Genesis 6:19 – 20
    “And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls AFTER THEIR KIND, and of cattle AFTER THEIR KIND, of every creeping thing of the earth AFTER HIS KIND, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

  7. Isa 32:5
    The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.
    Isa 32:6
    For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
    Isa 32:7
    The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.
    Isa 32:8
    But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

  8. Exactly WHAT qualifies this dilletante airhead to pronounce and declaim on anything other than her own vacuousness, and all too clear shallow, unreflective, profound stupidity.
    Stick to what you (don’t, and wont ever) know sweetheart..
    Here’s a best of.

    How can she, a self proclaimed Christian, not know, that the (((jack the ripper’s’))) claim that they are, and were then, phartisees?
    Proud murderer’s of God’s Boy?
    All recorded history tending to at least give some creedence to their
    crazed assertions
    She’s hardly alone in this sadly.

    But it does point to the fact that opinion’s, like unsolicited imbecilic eructations, are like S.T.D,s.
    Every negro, rabbi, wog, shirtlifter, feminist,dyke or oxygen thieving waste of skin has one.
    Can’t wait to share.
    Like the gormless anthropomorphised cloacalites in human costume, hooting and chimping at your V.P.

    Like Joe Friday i’m “Just the facts, ma’am.”
    “Better to remain silent and be thought a foo than to ook and remove all doubt.” Abe Lincoln.
    At least Pence avoided a busted cap in his ass.

    A scolds bridle and a word with her male owner, used to keep this sort of unfounded,hormonally driven assertion peddling, out of sight and sound.
    Sparing everyone the consequent cringing embarrassment, rolled eye’s, tuneless whistling.
    For men too, who display a fay penchant for risk averse gimpoofery.
    The putrid gender fluid.
    Moreso may’be.
    My empathy resembles a 4×2 studded with six inch nails.

    A dimwitted bird, yapping only to yap, can be tuned out.And be yet aesthetically pleasing visually.
    A cloud shading the sun for a few moment’s, ’til a more pleasing aspect is restored.
    The faggy man-she banshee needs to be Molly McGuired.

    She is a burlesque/stripper/feminoid navel grazer apparently.

    Christian?
    This fellow.
    Harder than the nails in leo frank’s coffin!

  9. Christians are OBEDIENCE to God’s Laws. Liberal HATE to ABIDE BY ANY LAW! Can she be both? Let’s see:

    Titus 1:16
    “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny Him,* being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate” .

    I John 2:4
    He that saith, I know Him [God], and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    She can’t be both!

    • It says in the article that her sister is or was a minister….Anyone who reads the bible knows women aren’t supposed to be ministers.

  11. Salon is taught many lies from defiled religon. Charity is not an earthly thing.
    1 Corinthians 13:4-8Authorized (King Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6 rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
    Colossians 3:14: And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness
    Salon loves Muslims who lie in three ways thinking that is permissible. Salon like people who are cruel to animals in Halal? Salon likes Muslims to practice sadomasochistic rituals slicing themselves with sharp knives like the idolatrous nations against Israel. Salon wants people who think eating human flesh is alright as long as they are non Muslims. Muslims have been known to kill and eat their own wives. Salon is OK with having Muslims around who obey a being that made all things to be mortal inventing nuclear fusion making stars do what they do. God who is eternal made the stars to be what he is in the beginning. A rational minded person will not be OK with people like that around

  13. A classic symptom of progressive thinking is to view everything through the lens of politics. Politics must come first to these people, even before their humanity and natural instincts. As result, while they are not 100% incorrect, they are never 100% accurate, either. Politics is a bit like sorcery, an attempt to bend nature and man to ones will while ignoring that there is already a sovereign God of nature. Christianity is outside of their realm. They have no understanding and are incapable of comprehending it because it can not fit their preconceived dialectic. Plain and simple, if this lady is a Christian then the forests are full of them.

  14. I remember when that Coca-cola ad came out. I was a boy, and we lived in California’s Bay Area amongst the hippies and radicals. I recall thinking even then what a weird advertisement. A bunch of hippie-dippies with long hair and dashikis dancing around on a hill-top. I guess my father’s severe All-American conservatism had already rubbed off on me. I wish someone could digitally alter that ad and have the earth open up and swallow all of them.
    “They’re hippies! The don’t have any money!”- Eric Cartman

  15. There is no scripture that says Christ followers must be stupid.
    Christ said = “Judge wisely” = discriminate.
    Who is your brother? From your Father? Same dad? If not, then a deceiver/impostor.
    This ‘stuff’ is from a contemporary young woman[?], with all the mixed up, stinking garbage that goes with these feminut sheeples. Not the type to give considered talks about anything to anyone: Especially, not sermons.
