…and makes irrevocable liars and false prophets of all the corrupt Christian servants of a dimestore antichrist, I thought I would say a few words to every member of the MAGA Qhristian cult as this shameful and disgusting chapter in the history of American Christianity comes to a close.
If there is one thing I could impress on MAGA Christians after four years of their having all their worldly dreams of raw nihilist power come true it would simply be this:
No unbeliever will ever believe you trust or obey Jesus, much less that they should, when you act each and every day like a selfish asshole.
That is the sole takeaway that any decent, thoughtful person has when reflecting on the obscene spectacle your ugly false religion has shown the world since 2016.
You got all the kingdoms of the earth you could have ever wanted. Your phony god led you all to the top of an exceeding high mountain and promised you a tin-plated Vegas Casino of Heaven and you whored yourself out to him like Stormie Daniels. Only she was just doing business. You stood in front of the whole world and lied that you were doing the work of God Almighty and the rest of us were not worthy to untie your holy sandals.
Jeremiah had your number:
How can you say, ‘I am not defiled,
I have not gone after the Baals’?
Look at your way in the valley;
know what you have done—
a restive young camel interlacing her tracks,
a wild donkey used to the wilderness,
in her heat sniffing the wind!
Who can restrain her lust?
None who seek her need weary themselves;
in her month they will find her.
Keep your feet from going unshod
and your throat from thirst.
But you said, ‘It is hopeless,
for I have loved strangers,
and after them I will go.’
“As a thief is shamed when caught,
so the house of Israel shall be shamed:
they, their kings, their princes,
their priests, and their prophets,
who say to a tree, ‘You are my father,’
and to a stone, ‘You gave me birth.’
For they have turned their back to me,
and not their face.
But in the time of their trouble they say,
‘Arise and save us!’
But where are your gods
that you made for yourself?
Let them arise, if they can save you,
in your time of trouble;
for as many as your cities
are your gods, O Judah. (Je 2:23–28)
You gained the whole world and you lost your own souls and it was a huge waste of time.
You lied and lied and lied for four years and then idiotically expected people to have Faith in your word.
You preached paranoia, conspiracy bullshit, and apocalyptic despair and expected to be taken seriously when you babbled about Hope.
You horrified Normals with your cruelty to children you kidnapped into ICE camps to be raped, you applauded while your god stayed silent about Russian bounties, you pitied yourselves for having to mask while you helped kill 300K Americans and break the back of our health care system and expected Normals to believe your God is love.
You tie up heavy burdens for your victims, yet will not lift a finger to help protect the lives of the most vulnerable around you. You think of no one and nothing but yourselves. God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles, all because of you. And still, you are swollen with pride and blame your victims for recoiling from you in disgust and not yourselves for embracing a monstrous, lying, sadistic dimestore antichrist and imitating him like the most fanatical disciples.
And today, at long last, all your lies and false prophecies all come crashing down in ruins while you offer not a word of apology for any of it, because you serve an impenitent liar and you have remade yourselves in his image and likeness.
In John 8, Jesus spoke “to the Jews who had believed in him” (v. 31), saying, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
These believers, under the impression they were doing Jesus a huge favor by running after him in order to accessorize their egos with a new trendy guru, took great offense at the thought that they were not All That and immediately began fighting with him. They were not here to obey him or be saved by him. They were here to tell everybody else what to do. Others needed salvation, not them. They thought themselves the saviors, as your MAGA cult did. You proudly fancied you were here to save America from the rest of us and the Church from the Holy Father and the Magisterium. You had a long list of people you could not wait to put up against the wall:
And now it’s all over. Today, your fantasy of a secular messianic Kingdom of Heaven ruled by Biff Tannen, meting out spite and vengeance to all those you want to punish in the name of the vengeful god in your mirror is over.
Now it is time for you to do something you are wholly unaccustomed to doing: take seriously the words of the Penitential Rite in the Mass and think about how you, not everybody around you, have sinned, through your fault, through your fault, through your own most grievous fault.
For there is a heavy millstone awaiting your neck if you do not repent for the evils you have proudly embraced for the past four years. That is simply a fact.
You have a great opportunity before you: one that Israel was given and one that is necessary to the well-being of every person that hopes to follow Jesus and be saved: join him in the desert. Reflect, at long last, on your sins and not on how the rest of us, including even the Pope himself, need to be punished, excluded, excommunicated, and rejected. Think it possible you may be wrong and stop, for the love of God, reflexively shouting, “NO! YOU!” whenever you are confronted with the evils you have passionately defended.
If you won’t, if you cling to your pride and multiply your lies and keep using accusaion as your sole form of confession and continue to seek raw nihilist power instead of humility, wisdom, and love, you shall not be saved.
So take the cross you have been handed, return to Jesus, reject the dimestore antichrist you have modeled your life on and find the Way of Life again.
Start by abandoning the devil, whispering this very second in your ear, that this is about Trump vs. Biden. It’s not. It’s about idolatry vs. Christ. It’s not about evaluating your politics vs. Democratic politics. It’s about evaluating your politics vs, the gospel. Forget Biden. Forget Trump. Focus on Jesus Christ. Neither Biden nor Trump can save. Only Jesus can. Look there:
“Yet even now,” says the LORD,
“return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
and tear your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the LORD, your God,
for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in mercy,
and repents of evil.
Who knows whether he will not turn and repent,
and leave a blessing behind him,
a cereal offering and a drink offering
for the LORD, your God? (Joel 2:12–14)
