Donald Trump Once Declared His Love For A Preacher Who Said 9/11 Was God's Judgment

First, it's no secret which Americans actually cheered 9/11, and whose side they are on. The Arabs Donald Trump's thinking of were Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. They said that horror was the judgment of God:

"[T]he pagans and the abortionists and the feminists and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way — all of them who have tried to secularize America," Falwell continued, "I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'"

"Well, I totally concur," responded Robertson.

Both of those men were powerful organizers in the GOP. And continuing that proud tradition is a friend of Donald Trump's. Pastor Robert Jeffress said 9/11 was holy retribution over the issue of abortion:

"People ask me all the time," Jeffress continued, "'Well, I just don't understand why God wouldn't protect our nation and he would allow these radical Muslims in 2001 to kill 3,000 of our citizens and why God doesn't protect us. Surely, God doesn't use pagans to bring judgment upon his own people, does he?'"

"Just read the Bible," he said. "God will not allow sin to go unpunished and he certainly won't allow the sacrifice of children to go unpunished."

And here is an article about Robert Jeffress giving Donald Trump a blessing at a rally, with a photo of the two of them embracing. Trump praised Jeffress at the event:

“Where is Pastor Jeffress?” Trump asked, looking around. “He’s around here someplace. What a good guy. Where is he? Come here.” Joined onstage by Jeffress, Trump exclaimed: “I love this guy!”

Trump has no business talking about people gloating over 9/11. The people who have gone on the record on the subject are in the Christian right, and they're supporters of him and his party.

    Trump went to the same church as Obama? Whoda thunkit?

    We need to elect a president faithful to the word of Eris. Or maybe "Bob". But none of this Pastafarian shit; we all know Pastafarianism is just the Venezuela's way of trying to sow chaos within the fold, akin to how to British created the Ba'hai faith to fuck with the Mahdi's army of Fuzzy-Wuzzies.
