MyPillow CEO: "Trump's Our President for the Next Four Years"
He really should have slept on that statement.
We told you yesterday that former Pennsylvania State Rep. Rick Saccone was among the insurrectionists who tried to “run out all the evil people” of the Capitol on Wednesday. As it turns out, Saint Vincent College, where Saccone is an adjunct professor, was also paying attention. Beating them to the punch, Saccone resigned and is now trying to say he was only kidding about overthrowing the government.
It’s time for all those who incorrectly prophesied Donald Trump would win re-election to start owning up to their false information. We don't really expect them to admit they were wrong (or worse, God was wrong), but it was a nice surprise to see Pastor Jeremiah Johnson take a half-assed crack at it.
“I would like to repent for inaccurately prophesying that Donald Trump would win a second term as the President of the United States.
As a human being, I missed what God was saying…”
Those must be some good pillows if he’s still dreaming.
The National Catholic Reporter wasn’t afraid to name names in their scorching call-out of high-profile MAGA Catholics, making the case they “have blood on their hands.” The full editorial is a gratifying read.
We’re talking to you CatholicVote.org, Attorney General William Barr and other Catholics in the Trump administration, Amy Coney Barrett, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, rogue prolifer Abby Johnson. Sadly, the list goes on.
And what about the everyday Catholics — some 50% of them — who voted for Trump this year, after four years of incompetence, racist dog whistles and assaults on democratic norms? Not all were at the “protest” in Washington, but many have supported organizations that fanned the flames. Too many Catholic voters were content to cozy up to Trump in exchange for tax breaks, or Supreme Court judges, or subsidies for Catholic schools.
The group Intercessors for America have asked God to “fight” Chief Justice John Roberts if he does not “bow to You.” As a reminder, Roberts is a conservative Supreme Court Justice— but apparently it’s not enough that he’s not a right-wing loyalist above his commitment to justly upholding the law.
When proselytizing, remember: Font matters.
The Christian hate group Illinois Family Institute says that Rep. Mary Miller, who said "Hitler was right on one thing," was right to praise Hitler for that one thing.
Hitler—the evil monster—was right on one thing: Whoever has the youth, has the future.
Other people have said similar things. You really don’t have to give him credit for that one.
Never mind that the rioters who invaded the Capitol Building were undeniably Trump supporters, let’s focus on how utterly conflicting it is for Mario Murillo to tell politicians to “be afraid of us” and then deny Trump supporters were responsible for the Capitol violence, all in the same breath of air.
The Trump-enabling National Association of Evangelicals released this laughable statement in response to the Capitol insurrectionists.
The mob at the Capitol was provoked by leaders, including President Trump, who have employed lies and conspiracy theories for political gain. Evangelicals are people who are committed to truth and should reject untruths.
It was a long time coming, and coming, and coming, but it finally happened— Trump was permanently banned from Twitter.
Remember that being an atheist doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a master of critical thinking.
Trump wasn't silenced. He could hold a press conference right now if he wanted to and it'd be aired nationwide. He got kicked off of private social networks for fomenting violence. He deserved it. It should've happened a long time ago.
Finally, this wins the internet:
