There is a new movie coming to 1,200 theaters nationwide this October. The Trump Prophecy is a collaboration between evangelical Liberty University and an independent Christian filmmaker. The topic? That Donald Trump was appointed by God to lead The United States.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Students at the university will gain school credit for working on the film in areas such as camera operations, set design, producing, and other skills often used in the movie industry. The film’s premise centers around the idea that Trump’s election is meant to heal America.
So far we’re not really seeing a lot of healing.
Fundamentalist preacher Jerry Falwell founded Liberty University in 1971. His son, Jerry Falwell Jr., is now the president of the college. Falwell Jr. also happens to be a die-hard Trump supporter and on his evangelical advisory committee.
Nothing fishy about that, right?
The Trump Prophecy revolves around the story of a fireman who believes he heard the voice of God tell him, “You’re hearing the voice of a president,” while he was watching an interview with Trump. Taylor believes the message came straight from the Holy Spirit.
Twitter can’t even.

And this, folks, is what we call drinking the kool aid.

Oh for fuck sakes. I don't want to know.

People were struggling to grasp the concept of the film.
Ummm, so a firefighter had nightmares and the U.S. ended up with Trump?

How divorced from reality these lunatics are. Likely it's to make money off inhabitants of the closed evangelical world.

Prayer got him elected but failed to prevent over 4,000 Puerto Ricans from dying in a hurricane. Maybe I was too young, I just don’t recall the churches I attended, as a child, acting this crazy. Yet, now I can assume pretty well which of my family will be seeing this. ♂️

People couldn’t wrap their heads around the idea that God would back Trump.
Somehow I missed the part in the Bible where a twice divorced “pussy grabbing” reality TV huckster was part of God's plan. Perhaps an American evangelical can enlighten me.

Pretty sure that if God did say that, it was meant as a threat and a curse, not as some kind of blessing.

That god says the darndest things. Always in accordance with what the recipient believes. An old tactic that is used to manipulate the masses and only the weak sheeples believe and defend… So many gods!
