Kansas City Sunday Night Contemplation: Does Jesus Love Prez Trump???
For those who already have forgotten, we started this week with discussing news of a Kansas City church praying "truth" amid an impeachment iniquity.
One week later and like it or not . . .
Revelation: The impeachment threat over Prez Trump Ukraine phone chat hot talk seems to be just another nothing-burger.
Still, images of campy movie doctored video of a MSM church slaughter by the fake-tough-guy fanboys of the Prez make great news fodder and remind us all that silly MAGA dad joke memes are nothing more than preaching to the choir and playing the same identity politics card that is often used to target progressives.
Nevertheless and because this country wasn't just founded on slavery and near genocide of the Native Americans but also THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE.
We offer this gathering of news & views from "many sides" on the topic of faith & Prez Trump.
Politico: ‘Render to God and Trump’ - Ralph Reed calls for 2020 obedience to Trump
LA Times: Trump Is Anti-Abortion. That Alone Explains Why Christians Favor Him.

We're curious if any of our bloggy denizens can reconcile their faith with the nasty biz of politics and/or how a true believer in ANYTHING overcomes their inevitable moments of doubt.
In the meantime, thank you for reading this week and hopefully we'll have more for the morning of update.
