Normal Americans aren’t excited that Scott Pruitt is moving rapidly top destroy decades of progress at the EPA. But last week, the Christian Broadcasting Network, a right-wing outlet, looked at it from from the perspective of the lunatic fringe. We’re talking about a lunatic fringe that spits in Jesus’ face and worship mammon in the form of a fat self-glorifying orange orangutan. Forget Biblical injunctions like – Ezekial 34:2-4: “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves!
Should not shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds, clothe yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not take care of the flock. You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally.”
Or Isaiah 24:4-6: “The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.”
Or Jeremiah 2:7: “I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable.”
The fake Christians in Trump World are turning the Bible on its head to further their own of greed and avarice. No one is worse than Scott Pruitt, a full-fledged servant of the anti-Christ in the Oval Office.
