'Render to God and Trump': Ralph Reed calls for 2020 obedience to Trump

Source: Politico

ne of Donald Trump’s most prominent Christian supporters will argue in a book due out before the 2020 general election that American evangelicals “have a moral obligation to enthusiastically back” the president.

The book’s author, Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed, became a loyal foot soldier for Trump immediately after he nabbed the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 — commanding hordes of white evangelical voters from his perch on the candidate’s religious advisory board to trust that the New York businessman would grow the economy, defend religious freedom and dismantle federal protections for abortion, if elected.

According to the book's description, obtained by POLITICO, the original title for the book was “Render to God and Trump,” a reference to the well-known biblical verse, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.” The message from Jesus in Matthew 22, has been used in contemporary politics to justify obedience to government — or in the case of Reed’s book, to Trump.

Regnery Publishing confirmed the book’s existence but said the title is “For God and Country: The Christian case for Trump.” The publisher declined to comment on the reason for the title change.

1. Trump has abused his office, no one has to render anything to him.

2. Apparently he didn't read that Bible verse closely enough.

Jesus said to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, and render unto God that which is God's - in other words it's an either-or proposition. He didn't say you should render anything to Caesar and God.

4. Money, Loyalty, and one's Immortal soul....Trump is NO Caesar.

It is my understanding that …...Render unto Caesar, that which is Caesar's refers to Taxes and Loyalty.


Render unto God refers to one's Immortal soul. Trump will never own my loyalty or soul, as I will not render them to him.

9. Can you imagine how feeble a person would be to turn to Ralph Reed for wisdom?



A suit in Ralph's favorite color.



Easy to see he even creeps out Trump, as hard as that must be to imagine.

21. That should be a fun book...

"Render Unto Trump: The reason an Evangelical Christian should vote for a man who's violated all ten of the Commandments, never goes to church, has paid for multiple abortions, and embarrasses his country every chance he gets.

The real reason: Donald Trump is so fucking stupid he'll sign anything you put in front of him, so we'll finally get most of our agenda passed. Well, except for abortion. We need abortion because you guys will stop sending us money if we ever get that banned.
