How To Live Under An Unqualified President by John Piper

This is the first time in my adult life (I am 46 years old) that I am optimistic about the U. S. president. I give the Bushes, the Clintons, and Obama failing scores.

Actually, Chad, I have no liberal tendencies - as far as I know. Republicans have a set of values, that they like to push. And some of those values, might be in harmony with Christian conservatism. I’m all for that. I’m also all for giving Mr. Trump a chance. See what he can do.

But that doesn’t mean I won’t use the literary genre of satire, to make fun of him. After all, what do you think all the world’s political cartoonists are doing?
Or to work with my preferred lobbyist group (AARP), to insure my agenda items are addressed.

Having said that, it’s one thing for Christians to vote for him - given they were presented, with a moral dilemma. It’s another thing for Christians, to put him up on a pedestal (as an outstanding example, of Christina ethics and virtue).

Oh how I wish you had used your gifts on Barack and Hill. They too were so ‘ripe’ for satirizationism. :smiley:

Yep I agree with you.

Just saw a pic of Mr Trump in the oval office with the ‘Make America Great Again’ hat on. Gotta love it.

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: Go Donald!

If any Christians ARE putting him on a pedestal, I haven’t heard from them yet. But I don’t think any of us would be surprised if some did. :laughing:

They’ll have a good cry and maybe a cookie and get over it.
I’d like a cookie right now, actually.

John Piper’s prayer for Trump:

I’m detecting a fair bit of insult, satire, and mockery here.

Interesting.

:laughing: you stirrer

i was in the health club, locker room last week. I heard one young man, remark to a group of young men:

I went over to them and said this:

And everybody started to laugh.

But seriously, folks - let’s see what the man can do. In the meantime:

Work with your favorite lobbyist group, to promote your agenda
Vote in a bunch of Democrats to congress, if he fails to deliver in 2 years
Vote him in again, if he does deliver in 4 years

In the meantime, he’s food for fodder, for all the political cartoonists, news outlets and yours truly :exclamation: :laughing:

And on another front, let’s have another dedication song. I can’t tell if the gal in the picture, is going forwards or backwards :exclamation: :astonished: :confused:

This should be up your alley :laughing: :laughing:

Well at least his detractors have comported themselves with complete decorum.

Notice the glance at the camera before putting on the act

Or maybe this is the person we wanted?

That must be an inaugural scream as opposed to a primal, err I mean primary scream :exclamation:

LOL

Ok, then - here’s another group that hates Trump

And another anti-Trump group.
Just sayin’ - I will match fodder with fodder if that’s the game.
