March to Madness
Am I the only person that sees parallels between wannabe leaders and their followers?
It is not just the physical similarities between these wannabe leaders, but it is also their attitude and delivery of their speeches.
I want to be honest with my readers; I do not have more power or money than either of these wannabe leaders. Having said that, there is one parallel between Trump and me. We are both Presbyterians, which is a personal embarrassment for me. Nonetheless, I know that if the Donald became president and I travelled overseas again, I couldn't be barred from returning to the States, since I benefit from being a Presbyterian.
The Donald said to the Christian Broadcasting Network, "First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, Queens, is where I went to church. I'm a Protestant, I'm a Presbyterian. And you know I've had a good relationship with the church over the years. I think religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion."
In fact, the Donald collects Bibles. He told the CBN, "There's no way I would ever throw anything, to do anything negative to a Bible...I would have a fear of doing something other than very positive, so actually I store them and keep them and sometimes give them away to other people but I do get sent a lot of Bibles and I like that. I think that's great."
Perhaps, when the Donald visits me in Crown Point, I can get my Greek Interlinear New Testament out, and we can compare some Synoptic passages. One that I would like to exegete with him is from Ματθαῖος 7:1-5 ὑποκριτά ἔκβαλε πρῶτον ἐκ τοῦ ὀφθαλμοῦ σοῦ τὴν δοκόν καὶ τότε διαβλέψεις ἐκβαλεῖν τὸ κάρφος ἐκ τοῦ ὀφθαλμοῦ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου. He has a wondrous talent of seeing clearly the various problems that Mexicans, Muslims, and a long list of others have, including Carly Fiorina's looks.
Beyond those issues, both the Dulce and the Donald's fans love them.
The Donald is reassuring to some....
