Donald Trump Has Designated Churches and Mosques as Essential
By Julio Severo
President Donald Trump declared on 22 May 2020 that churches, synagogues, mosques and other houses of worship are “essential services” and must reopen.
“Today I’m identifying houses of worship — churches, synagogues and mosques — as essential places that provide essential services,” Trump said in the White House briefing room.
Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all non-essential services have been closed. Churches have been put in this category, but abortion clinics not. Abortion, which was legalized in the United States in 1973 and kills about 4,000 American unborn babies, has been deemed an “essential service.”
“Some governors have deemed a liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential, but have left out churches and other houses of worship. It’s not right. So I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential,” Trump said, reading from a statement.
“Many millions of Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life. The ministers, pastors, rabbis, imams and other faith leaders will make sure that their congregations are safe as they gather and pray,” Trump said.
“We need more prayer not less,” concluded Trump, who believes that the prayers of evangelical ministers, Catholic priests, Jewish rabbis, Islamic imams and other faith leaders — including witchcraft leaders — can do a lot of good to the U.S. It is in this belief that he inaugurated, days ago, a totally new multifaith National Day of Prayer. While the National Day of Prayer was launched by evangelicals in the 1950s and was always prominently evangelical, now Trump turned it into a multifaith event, with evangelical ministers, Catholic priests, Jewish rabbis, Islamic imams and many other leaders of different non-Christian and anti-Christian religions.
Trump’s intent is to correct some states, which keep liquor stores, abortion clinics and homosexual clubs open because are deemed “essential.” By declaring churches and mosques essential, Trump has showed that states should grant to churches and mosques the same importance they have granted to liquor stores, abortion clinics and homosexual clubs.
I do not know if George Washington, the first U.S. president, would be happy that someday churches would be granted the same importance as mosques, liquor stores, abortion clinics and homosexual clubs. But I doubt that he would not be shocked.
And I doubt that when Islamic imams make their strange prayers, they are praying for the good of the U.S and its Christian foundation. But I would not doubt if they are praying for their Islamic brothers to be successful in all their efforts to spread Islam — including by sword and bombs.
To make churches and mosques as equally essential is a sign that the U.S. has become a religious Babylon. To make churches and abortion clinics as equally essential is a sign that the U.S. has become an opportunistic Babylon.
So in the current U.S., or Babylon, as David Wilkerson used to call America, if you want to open churches, you have to open abortion clinics too. If you consider churches important, you have to consider mosques equally important, for the sake of sacred equality, which is above God and the Bible in America. In fact, in America’s equality, God and Satan are… exactly equal in religious and legal worth! So you should not be surprised if someday a Satanist offers his prayers at the National Day of Prayer.
Perhaps this confusion explains why on the date celebrating the landmark 500 years of the Protestant Reformation (October 31, 2017), Trump not only did not celebrate it, but he did celebrate Halloween, a date traditionally connected to occultism. Perhaps aware that multiculturalism forces him to celebrate equally the special dates of other religions, he discarded the most important date of Protestantism in the largest Protestant nation in the world.
There is just one problem. Trump has celebrated special dates of other religions at the White House itself.
* In 2018, Trump host his first White House Ramadan dinner.
* Also in 2018, Trump host a pagan Hindu Festival at the White House.
* And Trump’s State Department has officially “blessed” Islamic holidays.
While Trump and his administration celebrate Islamic holidays at the White House, let us ask a very simple question: “Does Saudi Arabia, the capital of Islam and the most important Islamic ally of the U.S., celebrate Protestant holidays?”
So why does the U.S., the largest Protestant nation in the world, celebrate Islamic holidays?
What has the U.S. received by flattering Islam? A multitude of Islamic attacks, including the 9/11 — most of them with Saudi connections.
Could it be that celebration and flattery of Islam draw more hatred and terrorist attacks from Muslims? If this logic is correct, it could explain why Saudi Arabia does not celebrate Protestant holidays. Perhaps Saudi Arabia fears that by flattering and celebrating Protestantism they might eventually draw hatred and terrorist attacks from U.S. Protestants!
Can you imagine if such approach is used to deal with other criminals? To rapists? Incidentally, Saudi students who rape American women go unpunished by fleeing the U.S. under the protection of Saudi Arabia. The U.S. cannot be hard with Saudi rapists fleeing to Saudi Arabia because it could lose billions and billions and billions of dollars. After all, Saudi Arabia is the biggest purchaser of U.S. weapons.
So the U.S. apparently flatters Islam and does not punish Saudi rapists because they have a very good economic and military deal. Has ever Saudi Arabia flattered Protestantism and not punished American criminals just for the sake of this deal?
But Trump is not the first Republican president to flatter Islam.
Immediately after the 9/11, Republican President George W. Bush said that Islam is a “religion of peace,” to make sure that no one had some wrong idea that Islam and Saudi Arabia could be somewhat involved in this horrible attack.
And in the 1950s Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower inaugurated a mosque in Washington and in his speech, he said that Islam has for centuries contributed to the building of civilization. Could he have read, because of a visual impairment, “building” where there was “destruction” in his history books?
Remember the difference: Republicans are conservative and Democrats are socialists following a multicultural agenda.
Republicans are different from Democrats. Now repeat it to yourself several times a day until you eventually believe it!
White evangelical Christians have been among the most loyal members of the Trump’s political base, because they are conservative and voted to have a conservative administration, not a multifaith Babylon, with non-Christian and anti-Christian religions having the same worth as the Christian religion that was the bedrock of the U.S. civilization.
