aside When Talking About N Korea, Religion Should Definitely Stay Out Of Politics

It is bad enough that two countries with nuclear power have leaders who are challenged in the mental health category. Both the republican US President Donald Trump and the N. Korean leader Kim Jung-On have been one upping each other as who is the toughest and the most dangerous.

This locker room mentality has been the modus operandi for the N. Korean leader but it has not been the way a US leader is expected to act. The US president has been participating in this saber rattle-ling talk without first informing any of the experts at his disposal. There is no General, military expert or anyone of any substance who would ever have approved of the president’s current handling of this combustible situation..

And as the world watches both escalate their rhetoric with horror, there is now a popular conservative pastor who is stating that “God has given President Trump the go-ahead to act.”


Here’s the rest of the story…

August 8, 2017, Todd Starnes/ Twiiter and for FOX Nation penned the following post, “Jeffress: God Has Given Trump Authority to Take Out Kim Jong-Un.”

God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jon-Un,” the Southern Baptist pastor said matter-of-factly.

President Trump warned that if North Korea continues to threaten the United States it would be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” And now one of his evangelical advisors says the president has the Almighty’s blessing.

Jeffress commended the president’s “resoluteness” against the North Koreans.



    • Dear David Prosser,

      It is upsetting that this pastor invokes the name of God as he is literally assigning millions to an early death without a second thought. Why even the terrorists commit their atrocities in the name of their Allah.

  1. Dear Gronda … There is a reason I awarded Jeffress the Idiot of the Week award last November! I see he hasn’t gotten any smarter since then. If Jeffress’ God has granted permission for causing massive death and destruction around the globe, then I am thankful that I am not a member of his religion! You are right … religion has NO PLACE in the already tenuous situation between two temperamental, childish “leaders”. Good information, Gronda … Thank you! Hugs!!!

    • Dear Jill,

      Pastor Jeffress deserves the idiot award in spades. If I were living in Dallas, I would be protesting his church instead of attending it. I hate to think what else he is telling those who attend his church.

      Whoever is supposed to be speaking to him, it is absolutely not God.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • I’m actually thinking this might be a good time to re-post that Idiot of the Week post, now that he is back to being an idiot publicly again! I re-read it last night and just had to shake my head, over and over. And you are quite right … if God is communicating with Mr. Jeffress, it is in some language that Jeffress obviously does not understand!

  2. Gronda, your title after the comma says it all. It just so happens North Korea is the subject matter. Our founders separated religion from state for a reason. But, here are three more. 1) God is not an American. He has a little larger domain. So, ministers should pray for peaceful solutions. 2) If God were American, which side was He pulling for during the Civil War? Both sides prayed to Him. The only prayer that should have been heeded, is help our leaders find a peaceful solution to end this slaughter of Americans. 3) Implying Donald Trump is savior or is predestined to do anything wreaks of blasphemy. When Jesus tells us to treat others like we want to be treated, I don’t think he was imagining we lie, cheat, demean, assault and be bigoted as our President does. Call me crazy, but that is what I believe. Good post. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      Your analysis is outstanding. Too often folks use God’s name in vain to justify a whole plateful of wrongs. For me, it is real simple. If someone is acting out of hate towards another, this hate is not from God.We are here to bring out the best in each other and not the worst.

      Hugs, Gronda


    • Dear Usfman,

      There are no truer words to describe this situation. I’m just sick of religious leaders of any stripe encouraging acts of was that are dooms millions of peoples to extreme suffering.

      Hugs, Gronda
