DFT is whining about the Christianity Today op-ed piece

He's going totally off the rails here... I love it!
https://www.politico.com/news/2019/12/20/trump-attacks-christian-magazine-impeachment-088591

President Donald Trump on Friday lashed out after the country’s top evangelical Christian magazine called for his removal from office, appearing to suggest his eventual Democratic opponent in next year’s general election will be a “nonbeliever” who threatens Americans’ freedom of religion and gun rights.

“A far left magazine, or very ‘progressive,’ as some would call it, which has been doing poorly and hasn’t been involved with the Billy Graham family for many years, Christianity Today, knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather … have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading ET again!” he added, apparently employing the wrong initials for the publication’s title.

14. Christianity Today is not a fundy publication

The editor says they're moderate, center-right, center-left. I get the impression they fall along the Evangelical Methodists and Missouri Synod Lutherans. A bit to the right of regular Lutherans, but not fundies.

2. The kindest thing any administration could do for the evangelical community...

...would be to strictly enforce the separation of church and state. Might actually alleviate a little the infestations of grifters and con artists.

Hmmmm ... I guess his space force will be taking care of ET. The damn fool.

11. He's worried by this, for big reason. The paid circulation

isn't huge, but it's an influential journal. And not exactly known as a "far left" magazine among those communities.

15. Say anything about him he doesn't like

You go in the Ad Hominem blender. Everyone gets dragged into the mire.

It's his one real skill, "counterpunching". The skill is the persistence, not the rhetoric.

17. He is persistent. He just keeps doing the same

Stuff right out in the open even though he is getting impeached.

I haven't ever seen anything quite like that. He just steamrolled over people and laws and decency. Putin must be proud.

The Roy Cohn method.

21. I've been waiting for that day.

When everyone just tires of his act.

"Cruelty is not wit" is a succinct insight.

22. I hate how they twist every good intention we have

Us being inclusive of other holidays besides Christmas leads us to say "Happy Holidays"

They twist that into us wanting to "take their religion" because to them, christianity is the ONLY religion.

I don't even know if they realize their staunch defense of christianity is basically them taking religion from everyone else.

More ass-backwards lunacy from the "morally superior"

is always "doing poorly".
