Mark Gonzales: Trump’s Critics Are ‘Messing With The Hand Of Almighty God’
Earlier this month, the Religious Right organization POTUS Shield—which is run by tsunami-stopping-pastor Frank Amedia, who served as a volunteer “Christian policy liaison” for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign—held a conference call to pray for Trump and his family.
During the call, Mark Gonzales of the U.S. Hispanic Action Network led participants in praying that God will expose and defeat Trump’s critics, warning that those who oppose the president are really opposing God.
“We have been praying, God, for you to expose darkness,” he said. “We have been praying, God, that you will expose those things that are being done in secret, to be brought out to light. God, we are seeing you expose the shenanigans of Satan that are trying to hold this country down, that are trying to get in the way of us moving forward as a country, as an administration, [under] the president.”
Gonzales prayed that God will expose the corruption in the FBI, the CIA, and the special counsel investigation that “the enemy is trying to use and connive” to bring down Trump.
“The deep state will be exposed,” Gonzales proclaimed, “and whatever they try to do, it will boomerang and people will know they are not messing with a man, with an administration, they are not messing with a country, they are messing with the hand of Almighty God and He will not put up with it.”
This very odd partnership of U.S. President Donald Trump with the Religious Right ‘POTUS Shield’ – though not unknown in the Republican came in North America – has been highlighted in a recent ‘conference call’ by Mark Gonzales to pray for the President and his family. This, on the face of it, seems a brave attempt to boost the Presidential credibility. However, there could be a significant sting in the tail.
What Conference members have been asked to pray for is : “that you (God) will expose those things that are being done in secret, to be brought out to light. God, we are seeing you expose the shenanigans of Satan that are trying to hold this country down, that are trying to get in the way of us moving forward as a country, as an administration, [under] the president.”
In praying that God would “expose the corruption in the FBI, the CIA and the special counsel investigation that the enemy is trying to use and connive to bring down the President” – it may be that God will answer that prayer by exposing the Trump family connection with Russian influences that may have helped to bring him into power.
Whatever the TRUTH about that situation may be – the prayer of the Religious Right to bring God into the equation could be as much a source of acute embarrassment to Donald Trump as it could be to shore up his presidency.
