As the Electoral College Seals the Defeat of Donald Trump

Published December 14, 2020

…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)

  1. Unfortunately I don’t think Trump is going away any time soon. And neither are his followers. How I wish the electoral vote today would just end the problem. He may not be president anymore, but only God can stop him by changing the minds of hearts of all of us.

    I pray every day for the conversion of myself and all Americans. Trump is controlling the Republicans like a mob boss. By saying he is going to run in 2024 he keeps them fearful and under his control. When I look around and see that almost half of this country voted for him, and that white women voted more for him in 2020 than 2016, I feel sickened.

    1. “Like a mob boss”. Mob bosses typically use extortion to maintain power. Does Trump know dirty secrets of others?

      1. Legally, any sort of threat can constitute extortion. It doesn’t have to be the threat of exposing a personal secret.
        Trump’s biggest threat that keeps Rs in line is that he might endorse a primary challenger in the next election. I’m pretty sure that’s how he turned Lindsey Graham.

  2. C’mon Mark, don’t hold back, tell us how you really feel. Seriously, how right you are. It works both ways though; I have had many unworthy un-Christian thoughts about DJT and his disciples.

  3. Mark, did you watch any of the “Jericho March” Saturday, or should I say “Prayers and Pillows March”, since the MyPillow Guy was hawking his wares while it was going on? Who needs “Borat” when so many people can punk themselves?

  4. “ 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.”

    Well, Mark, you have certainly called the steaming pile of excrement a scheissberg. Unfortunately, we are still steaming full speed ahead towards it.

    I will make one correction about the MAGAt Qhristians you so rightly deplore. This hasn’t been going on for a mere four years, or even 14. By my count, in my life, it has been going on for 43 years— ever since Anita Bryant raised her well coiffed reptilian snout above a Florida Swamp. Or 53 years— ever since Nixon’s Southern Strategy.

    It has always been a very simple metric: which leopards are eating which people’s faces, and who was paying attention.

  5. Mark’s favorite (/s, to be clear) Catholic Bishop Vigano spoke via live telecast at the Jericho March in DC on Saturday. And there was a Catholic priest performing exorcism too.

    What can gullible lay people do when shepherds act like this, and fellow shepherds keep silent? Silence is assent. This rot runs deep

    1. I’m not trying to be difficult, but all I see in some your posts is “jj”. Maybe you are posting graphics my IPad can’t detect.

      1. I recall him saying a while back he posts just his initials so he can receive email notifications for all the new comments. Whenever you comment you can click a box for email notifications.

  6. As we speak, Biden is assembling an unholy alliance of neocons and globalists that are deeply embedded in the Endless War Machine, Big Pharma, and Chinese controlled Wall Street lackies……with a few progressives sprinkled here and there in inconsequential positions to try and appease the Left. Biden still stands credibly accused of rape….not that long ago you labeled the accused whose accusers had much less veracity as “visible from space sex predators”, but in the case of Tara, crickets from you. Congratulations on your temporal victory. Enjoy it now, as it will be a mere split second when you cross over into the eternal realm.

    1. Anyone would have to be batshit crazy not to prefer Biden over Trump, but we need to recognize that Biden, given his record and his words, will probably do little more than protect the status quo in an era that is screaming for real change. I mean, seriously, we’re in the middle of a freaking pandemic and the guy has said at least half a dozen times that he would veto medicare for all. Yep. And, yes, he is stacking his administration with globalist neocons who will keep the wheels spinning for the bloated military industrial complex.

      Again, I’ll take him over Trump any day, but I have little optimism for the near future with him as our new president. In my opinion this is a thoroughly ridiculous country, and we don’t deserve a really fine president. Everyone had a chance and plenty of time on their hands during the lockdown to get informed and figure out what the hell is going on, but most people just binged on Netflix and kept swallowing the sound bites from the mainstream media. We get the politicians we deserve.

  7. @konker,

    Really, comrade! What a load of crap. Tara is a credible accuser? Of course she is, she’s changed her story so many times, she’s been caught lying so many times in so many issues, and somehow or other, she just seems to of disappeared

    Thanks, but I’ll take my chances with Mr. biden, as opposed to an unplanned guy on the Internet spewing conspiracy crap like he was a Q anon specialist.

    1. Tara is just as credible as Blasey-Ford or any of Harvey Weinstein’s accusers. Really, ben, your ignorance on the subject is glaring, as it is very common for accusations in rape cases to -vary-…..as Weinstein’s prosecutor elaborated on in great detail after successfully convicting Harvey. I never said I believed Tara. I don’t know if she’s telling the truth or not. I’m simply pointing out the hypocrisy. If you believed Blasey-Ford, or Leigh Corfman, Beverly Young Nelson, and Tina Johnson, then you have to believe Tara. It’s that simple.

      What is really rich is that it was Obama and Biden that made it too easy in the college world for women with flimsy accusations to RUIN the lives of young men. Biden himself cannot withstand the very low level of scrutiny -HE- established!

      I’ve never read a single QAnon article or whatever. I’ve followed Biden’s foreign policy since his senate days. Biden wagged his finger in Milosevic’s face……while embracing Thaci…..the very monster that made Milosevic react as a monster. Biden’s history on foreign policy is riddled with hypocrisies like that.

      1. @konk

        Tara is a credible witness but I never said I believe Tara. Rape is used to ruin the lives of young men so let’s accuse Biden of rape because that would ruin his life.

        That is the level of your witness, comrade. The problem of false accusations of rape is that they discredit the real accusations of rape.

    2. @bensnewlogin you just described the effects of Obama era Title IX.

      Rape is used to ruin the lives of priests so let’s accuse Fr. Tierney of rape because that would ruin his life.

      I -agree- with you. Now apply the same standard up and down the line.

  8. Mark, I don’t know if you ever read Rod Dreher on The American Conservative. Most of the time, he’s spewing some panic about “wokeness” dredging up in breathless tones how the left’s soft totalitarianism. The not this time. He has several articles on the Jericho March and how the totally screwed up the Far Right “Christians” have become. He is frankly surprised at it (I’m not), but he’s at least man enough to admit he was wrong about them. What got him on it was a friend of his, an evangelical named Mexatas (sp?) who flat out admitted that evidence or lack thereof was immaterial, that God told him Trump was destined or something like that. He calls Trump supporters a religious cult who believe in their new Savior. I normally wouldn’t say this, but read those 2 or 3 articles. I think he’s right in calling many of those people blind religious cultists.

    1. I stopped reading Dreher a couple years ago, after he published a series of articles praising Viktor Orban for his excellent leadership of Hungary. He’s promoting traditional Christianity! He’s pushing back against gay rights! Dreher actually acknowledged that Orban is methodically dismantling Hungary’s democratic institutions and he clearly wants to rule forever, but that’s a small price to pay for his top-notch Christian witness.
      I haven’t been back since.
      Dreher has *always* acknowledged that Trump was a clown, but he openly embraced that clown in exchange for Trump’s excellent judicial appointments (Dreher’s words). If he can now clearly see that the clown’s most fervent supporters are deranged, that hardly makes his opinions more valuable.

      1. My parents and I were Hungarian refugees in 1956 (I was 5). I don’t remember those earlier articles by him, but there was one a few months ago where some of his readers were praising Orban and saying they would move there. I got a bit ticked and sent an angry message. Apparently, it didn’t sit too well with him and others, though he did publish it. In my mind the only difference between fascists and communists is some terminology. Otherwise, in my book, they’re both enemies of the US.

      2. Dreher has always seemed like too much of an opportunist for me to take him too seriously. And too wedded to culture war tactics to for me to swallow. The gays! The transgenders! Dogs and cats living together! Etc.

  9. @Lucky Horseshoe:

    I recall him saying a while back he posts just his initials so he can receive email notifications for all the new comments. Whenever you comment you can click a box for email notifications.

    Yes – with Disqus, you could mail-subscribe to comments without commenting; on WordPress, you have to comment to do that. I haven’t time to sit and watch the post for new comments, but like to see them; every now and then I say something.

  10. You do realize it’s still not over, right? On Jan 6, the Vice President must tally the electoral votes and accept them or reject them. What sort of instruction do you think he’s getting for that?

  11. Yes, I get emails when Mark posts something. It is taking the time to go to the web page every now and then to see if there are any more comments that simply don’t have the time for. Usually, WordPress will offer to let me get e-mails for comments as well, but only after my first comment. That’s why I just put in ‘jj’ for each new post and then get back to work.
