Paula White, Trump's Personal Pastor, Joins the White House

Source: New York Times

Paula White, a televangelist based in Florida and personal pastor to President Trump whom he has known since 2002, has joined the Trump administration in an official capacity, according to a White House official.

Ms. White will work in the Office of Public Liaison, the official said, which is the division of the White House overseeing outreach to groups and coalitions organizing key parts of the presidentís base. Her role will be to advise the administrationís Faith and Opportunity Initiative, which Mr. Trump established last year by executive order and which aims to give religious groups more of a voice in government programs devoted to issues like defending religious liberty and fighting poverty.

As Mr. Trump campaigns for a second term, he cannot afford to lose support from the religious conservatives who voted for him in 2016 in significant numbers. Without their backing, his path to re-election would be significantly narrower.

He has taken repeated steps to ensure they turn out for him again ó by issuing executive orders, making cabinet appointments and nominating federal judges that pass muster with the religious right. On a range of issues from abortion rights to tax exemptions for churches, Mr. Trump has tried to grant Christian conservatives their policy wish lists whenever legally and politically feasible.

A prosperity gospel huckster who cons people out of their money? Seems like a good fit.

if the exorcist managed to cast out ALL the demons, there wouldn't be anything left.

2. Trump has said he's never had any reason to ask for forgiveness from God

That alone should turn off EVERY Christian. Because we've ALL done something that we would like to be forgiven for. Even those who dont believe would still take back SOMETHING they've said or done in life.
He's a bigger narcissist than any other one i've ever known

6. From Two (2nd) Corinthians

2 Corinthians, verse 11:13

"For such persons are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ."

39. Did both Corinthians say that? Or just the second one?

Probably said it while pointing at the first Corinthian.

Throwing Corinthians under the chariot.

13. Married and divorced multiple times, investigated by the IRS, questioned about her faith...

and I'm sure many other negative things that popped up when I did a search on her. What a mess. Figures that rump is in to her. Seems like she's following rump's footsteps in doing all of the scamming and BS too.

18. They love it. Their apocalyptic fantasies are driving them

Theyíre clamoring to go willingly. They want to be part of his cult.

They are showing that their religion or as they claim, faith, means nothing to them beyond political power.

17. We need to get these televangelist grifters out of the White House.

That should be a priority with the next administration. Church and state need to be separated, what this administration is doing is very dangerous.

Lots of pics on the 'Net of him holding her shoulders, face to face. Hugging her. Broadly smiling at her while quite close.

Yeah, he's bangin' her and likely has been for some time.

I call it....slippin' her the mushroom! Good news for her?

And when the VP is a dangerous jeebus whackadoodle.
