Letter to the editor: Trump-Jesus comparison blasphemous
Since Jesus has been elevated to a position of inherent perfection and infinite goodness, unattainable by any mortal, I would have to regard D.A. Scandrol’s letter “Trump as messiah” (Sept. 20, TribLIVE) as pure blasphemy, not to mention inaccurate on almost every point.
Mr. Scandrol, Jesus did not establish a church, and in fact worked to eliminate those already in existence. Read your Bible. Did Jesus really sleep with Mary Magdalene and then pay her for her silence? I guess I must have missed that.
Scandrol says Trump came to fulfill the Constitution. He disrespects the Constitution in so many ways it’s hard to know where to begin. For one thing, the emoluments clause, as he uses the office for personal gain. He has hijacked the judicial branch and the Justice Department to do his personal bidding. And what about congressional oversight? He defies subpoenas and even prevents others from complying.
His policies exacerbate what is arguably the most serious crisis we have ever faced, and in fact sabotages efforts to combat climate change.
Scandrol says Trump cleanses the political swamp. Only the willfully blind could refuse to see that he is the swamp. In spades!
And Mr. Scandrol, please tell me how the economy was sick when Trump took over? If he has improved it, it is for the wealthy. Anyone who says otherwise is either very rich or very stupid.
A comparison of my own: In the end Jesus was crucified, and so shall be Trump.
He concludes that Trump may well be Jesus.” Blasphemy if I ever heard it.
