Trump gets controversial about God

July 27, 2017 |

President Trump is on the hot seat once again for saying (and Tweeting) something just too-too controversial to let stand. Here’s what he dared to say:

“In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”

Bill Kristol at the Weekly Standard had to remind us all that the President doesn’t dictate “who or what or whether to worship.” Okay, fine. But I don’t think that’s what the President was trying to do, at all. “God” is a term so general that it can encompass the Judeo-Christian God, Allah, Buddah, a tree, the law of gravity, the entire universe or that still small voice within the human heart. Donald Trump, of all people, is not trying to force a national religion down anyone’s throat.

When asked about Trump’s statement, even Trey Gowdy felt the need to correct the President publicly, citing the Establishment Clause in the Constitution. Again, okay, fine. We absolutely do not have to worry about President Trump establishing a national religion. The people we have to worry about are those trying to import a brutal theocracy from other parts of the world.

But it’s the first part of Trump’s remark that makes his point: IN AMERICA, WE DON’T WORSHIP GOVERNMENT. As the left increasingly dominates the conversation in the media and on college campuses, many Americans are getting used to the idea of doing just that. The Progressive Movement is dedicated to proclaiming Government the one true power in our lives. And that is where the most urgent threat to our freedom lies.

    The President did address the situation correctly God is above all +++. Governments are not revered. Government are a means of developed guidelines to maintain order on daily basis . God. Gave us 10 commandments for life style to maintain peace and love .

    Trump hit the "Nail on the Head" once again and the Liberals just can't stand to hear the truth. Keep up the great work, Mr. President

    PS thanks Huck for letting us all in on what is really happening in DC

    So how is this suddenly controversial when every previous president except Obama referenced God or asked God's blessing in at least one of their public addresses? How have we changed so muck in such a short time?

    Jesus said those who speak up for him he would remember to his FATHER =GOD. The President acknowledged God, more than I can say for most of the elected ones in D.C. and elsewhere now in our country

    EDWARD DIGGS Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

    Mike,

    I am a Christian, Moderate Democrat. I am not a fan of trump. I voted for John Kasich. That said, opposed to abortion, same-sex marriage. Kudos for President Trump for not standing up to the LGBTQ community, especially transgenders in the military. On the religion issue, you and I both know religion means nothing. However, he was correct in the we have freedom to worship, as we choose, here in America.

    President Trump's statement isn't controversial at all. All people in general that "WORSHIP", IF they worship at all, worship a "GOD" ... NOT a government or thing or place! They worship a freaking GOD!
    Get over it people the POTUS is Donald Trump!!!

    Allah, trees and anything that someone worships is nothing but the worship of Idols, There is only one God and He is in Heaven, all these others are dead and their bones are still in the grave where they were buried, Put God first in your life, all these other things will not get you in Heaven Praise God.

    Trump commenting about god is the most hypocritical article I've read today, he's the most godless person to have ever occupied the Whitehouse.

    Thank you for these bold, wise and true words Mr. Huckabee! A good comment to this tweet!
    Greetings from Norway

    BTW, happy & thankful that your daughter is in the White House.
    She is just something (!!!), bold, smart and truthful as few. When you are not in there (as president), you kind of are in a way ....

    I concur Mr. Huckabee. The President was simply saying there are things that should not be left up to government.

    The media and people are going to criticize everything he says. It is the most pathetic thing I have ever seen. Makes me want to move to a remote corner of the earth. I do wish he would get good counsel before he speaks on things such as the transgender thing. It could have been kept silent for a while, and some out from someone other than him. I am a believer and very conservative, but I think the President speaks before he thinks sometime, which only makes things worse. Tweeting too often backfires. I am super worried that the Republicans are cutting off their noses to spite their faces. What a mess on the Left. I only watch Lou Dobbs and Hannity, no one else. This country needs God! Yes, we worship God!

    The left is increasingly injecting government into our lives, all their regulations, laws, control, in more and more instances, and reliance on the government for our very existence. Trump is just showing where our priorities should be and who we look to for substance. Point made, to me, at least, that man is looking the wrong direction, for salvation. Whether one believes in a higher power or not. Anything can be a God, (powerful one) many people are making the government their god. great danger in that.
