CNN Panel Ridicules Trump for Promoting Bibles with Lee Greenwood

via LiveNOW from FOX

Donald Trump launched a new business selling “God Bless the USA” Bibles in partnership with Lee Greenwood ahead of Easter.

The Bibles included both the New Testament and documents like the Constitution.

“Happy Holy Week! Let’s Make America Pray Again. As we lead into Good Friday and Easter, I encourage you to get a copy of the God Bless The USA Bible,” Trump wrote.

While Trump’s intentions appeared sincere, the venture was criticized as a commercialization of faith.

CNN anchors derided Trump over the initiative and mocked his biblical knowledge, demonstrating their own lack of religious literacy.

“Just a reminder,” the CNN anchor said, “this is the man who once said this,” playing a clip of Trump.

“2 Corinthians 3:17, that’s the whole ball game, ‘where the Spirit of the Lord’ — right? — ‘where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.’”

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty,” the actual verse reads.

Commentators expressed concern Trump could mandate Bible inclusion in public institutions, though the U.S. was not founded with an established church and early schools included biblical teachings.

“This is a preview, again, of how Trump sees the way he wants to rule the world … through an authoritative theology … the Bible is the root in which we’re going to govern this country, even though this country was founded on the separation of church and state,” CNN contributor Ashley Allison said.

“If he wins in November, and becomes president, he could not just say, like, I’m selling Bibles, but I’m mandating that in our schools, everyone has a Bible, in these institutions, everyone has a Bible, and that’s not what America is about,” she said.
