As it turns out Secretary of State and former head of the CIA Mike Pompeo is a Bible thumper who keeps the holy book on his desk to read the word of God and not just to show off; I believe this taints his ideological responsibility to be a responsible rational government official. Pompeo’s placement also reminds of the Dulles brothers, John Foster and Allen, who were nearly Christian fanatics and urged on longer than it should have been the Cold War to completely eradicate a Godless Communism. The Pompeo revelation coincides with the U. S. government announcing yesterday Trump wants the public schools to establish classes for student biblical learning.
Yeah, we know Trump is a good Christian, don’t we? Or is it that Donald needs and desires the Christian voter block out mid-western-way and scattered among the southern states. The only Christian leader I favor is the Catholic Pope. He’s a good man, but he sometimes missteps. The Pope is by doctrine suppose to be infallible, just like our POTUS Donald Trump. Everyone makes mistakes though, including the American voter public who voted Trump in.
Moreover, Readers, gleaned from the news and somewhat connected to the above, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Salman said in an interview yesterday, the U. S. and it’s allies during WWII encouraged the spread of radical Muslim Wahhabism in order to support unity within the Sunni faithful.
Wheeling religion is a powerful force in today’s supposedly rational era of satellites and cyberspace. God help us!!
All the Best to you.
PS: While closing this post I read something disturbing and thought to enclose a reply in this mail. While giving a speech in Cairo on 10 January the U. S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was quoted as saying in response to former president Obama’s legacy, “THE AGE OF SELF INFLICTED AMERICAN SHAME IS OVER.” I don’t know the feelings of the reader, regarding Pompeo’s statement. As for myself Obama had his faults, he was a little too forgiving with Wall Street mostly for the benefit of the Democratic party, (No one went to prison)but being ashamed of his eight year presidency to me is outrageous. In fact overall Obama, the gentleman president, and his Administration, performed outstandingly during several difficult financial and international periods over his term and by the way, it was scandal free.
Trump can’t depend on those who are independent, his equal or superior, but must only rely on loyal close-minded followers similar to Mr. Pompeo.
