God's buddy to speak at Trump's inauguration

Inauguration speaker Franklin Graham: God allowed Donald Trump to win
Crux (Roman Catholic outfit, oddly enough)

WASHINGTON — The Reverend Franklin Graham isn’t sure which Scripture he’ll read at the January 20 inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.The evangelist and head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse won’t get to make remarks at the event, but he will get to pick his own Bible passage, which could say a lot.

...


To punish us for our impiety?

You know, like God "allowed" the Babylonians to destroy the Jewish Temple and all that other bad stuff?

Pure deflection: they want us to think that if Trump messes up, it's God's fault.
Nice try, but we know God doesn't make mistakes, right?

Aha!!! But who can say Trump is a mistake? He may be the modern version of the Great Flood (although we must have got the rainbow wrong if so).
