So just when it looks like Trump will make some headway after a brutally tough week, once of his surrogates comes out and declares that Trump would win in 2020 against the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Oh brother.
I know, it wasn't Trump who said it. That doesn't matter. Any more than it didn't matter that Obama didn't declare himself the most important person since God. What mattered were the scores and scores of pundits, celebrities and activists who declared him the person who should have died for the sins of humanity.
It matters because it shows a void in the collective heart and soul of our nation, and not one easily hoisted off on one side or the other of the political divide. After all, for everyone who shook their heads and rolled their eyes at the Obama-worship from, among others, Oprah Winfrey and her ilk, it's not so easy to look away when the same is done for Trump. Or anyone for that matter.
Our problem is the heart and soul of our country. The Church and most Christians have abandoned linking that to a rejection of the God revealed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We shouldn't be surprised, therefore, when people start filling that Jesus shaped void with other things. Be it Obama, Trump, or the next politically inexperienced superstar that comes their way.
