4. Really doubt it. Robertson is sending a message that Trump

needs to pull it in and remember the story line: God chose and elevated him to serve Him.

I'm guessing the proliferation of Trump's sinful language is disturbing more people than endangering Middle East Christians is, which would make "mandate of heaven" dogwhistle for all the pretenses of righteousness he's blown through in his anxiety over the impeachment. Get back in line.

Now, wouldn't it be something if Trump kept blowing it, though, and the hemorrhage of Robertson and company's faithful, already serious, accelerated?

5. Mandate of Heaven - Divine right of kings

Mandate of Heaven - Divine right of kings

di∑vine right of kings
noun
noun: divine right of kings

the doctrine that kings derive their authority from God, not from their subjects, from which it follows that rebellion is the worst of political crimes. It was claimed in Britain by the earlier Stuarts and is also associated with the absolutism of Louis XIV of France.

===========================

The Mandate of Heaven does not require a legitimate ruler to be of noble birth, depending instead on the just and able performance of the rulers and their heirs. Dynasties such as the Han and Ming dynasties were founded by men of common origins. The concept is in some ways similar to the European concept of the divine right of kings; however, unlike the European concept, it does not in theory confer an unconditional right to rule, despite this being exactly the case in practice. The Mandate would in theory be a preoccupation in a ruler's lifetime, when he would hold onto the Mandate and live according to Heavens. Intrinsic to the concept of the Mandate of Heaven was the right of rebellion against an unjust ruler. Chinese historians interpreted a successful revolt as evidence that Heaven had withdrawn its mandate from the ruler. Throughout Chinese history, times of poverty and natural disasters were often taken as signs that heaven considered the incumbent ruler unjust and thus in need of replacement. The Mandate of Heaven was often invoked by philosophers and scholars in China as a way to curtail the abuse of power by the ruler.

6. What the fuck ever.

RW Evangelicals are the picture of hypocrisy.

Trump has more than than Evangelicals. He has trolls, rubes, and the elderly.
