Donald Trump’s supporters can get a little out of hand when it comes to defending him and his most trusted religious confidante isn’t any different.
On Monday during a panel interview on the Jim Bakker show, pastor Paula White used he Christian nationalism to defend Trump. She said that resisting Trump is like resisting “the hand of God.”
White is a wealthy faith leader who has been a long-time friend of Trump. She was a regular surrogate for his campaign in 2016, and remains one of several evangelical leaders who currently advise his administration.
“We are more impressed with a Saul anointing than a David anointing because we are more impressed with what looks right than what is right,” White, whose ministries were once the subject of a failed Senate probe investigating possible financial improprieties, said. “Therefore, we choose things that we think should sound right, should act right. They say about our president, ‘Well, he is not presidential.’ Thank goodness. Thank goodness. Thank goodness … he is not a polished politician. In other words, he is authentically — whether people like it or not — has been raised up by God. Because God says that He raises up and places all people in places of authority.”
She continued: “It is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down. When you fight against the plan of God, you are fighting against the hand of God.”
The evangelical wingnut suggested that going up against Trump is like going up against God.
This is like suggesting God encourages racism, bigotry and hatred. That doesn’t sound right at all.
