That Prayer Is Badly Designed!

Hideously designed bumper sticker.

Tony Perkins, president of the anti-LGBTQ group Family Research Council, urged FRC Action members to join him in praying that God grants wisdom and protection to President Trump and to display a “PRAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP” bumper sticker on their vehicles so others do the same.

They don’t need to pray for the Tiny Tyrant, they need to pray for a better bumper sticker designer, that thing is awful. Really awful. You could choose a high school student at random, and I’m pretty sure they’d do a better job than this mess. This sticker is like an advertisement of how to do design wrong in every way. Part of the FRC letter reads:

I’m not ashamed to say it: I PRAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP!

You too, I’m sure!

I can tell you firsthand, Donald Trump needs and appreciates our prayers—for God’s wisdom and guidance, for His grace and protection, and for His will to be done and our nation blessed to the glory of God.

As committed followers of Jesus Christ, we are directed to pray for the leaders God has placed in authority across our land. All Americans—especially God’s people—could probably use a gentle reminder in these troubled times.

I’m not in the ‘god’s people’ category, so I’d thank you to keep your “gentle reminder” to yourself, especially when that reminder is a glaring monument to ugly design and bad taste. That’s the sort of thing, that seen while on the road, can result in an hour long rant about people who think there’s nothing at all to that there design business. Aaarrrgggh. Anyroad, going by your own holy book, you aren’t supposed to be announcing your prayers or making a big public deal about them. It’s amazing how you christian assholes never pay attention to that bit.

The letter, which goes on for quite a while, includes a custom tailored petition. Here’s a bit:

…your personal petition will let our leaders in Washington know that you’re not only praying for President Trump but also for them to pass the conservative agenda WE voted for last November!

Specifically, it lets them know which issues – the ones you check off – that you’re praying for them to work on with President Trump to enact, including:

Repealing ObamaCare.
Defunding abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Reforming the tax code to make it more family friendly.
Standing with the nation of Israel.
Repealing provisions of the Johnson Amendment which prevent Christian pastors from speaking out on many key issues deemed “political” by the IRS.
Restoring religious liberty for all Americans, including:
-Small business owners declining to help celebrate same-sex weddings.
-Doctors and nurses refusing to perform abortions.
-Military chaplains refusing to deny their Christian faith.

    1 Timothy 2:1-4New International Version (NIV)
    Instructions on Worship
    2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

    “knowledge of the truth” is a good thing.
    How does this apply to Trump?

    did they gooogletranslate that from some other language?

    Praying for the Angry Cheeto isn’t the problem. The problem is all those asswipes who do shit for Angry Cheeto, rather than sitting on their knees and talking to their imaginary friend.

  4. Raucous Indignation says

    I pray for President Trump to have a stroke during a drug-fueled tweet-fit. And then have his toxicology screen reported to the MSM. But a really bad, bad stroke. Not like a little TIA or anything trivial. Maybe hemipelgia with just the right amount of incontinence thrown in?

    Let me get this straight -- we have to beg Yahweh to have Yahweh’s omnipotent will be done?

    So by not praying I turn Yahweh’s power off, cool beans.

  6. some bastard on the internet says

    The reason I can see the words “FOR PRESIDENT” is that my phone is close to my face. If I were to see that sticker on the back of a vehicle, I’m pretty sure I’d only be able to see the words “PRAY TRUMP.”

    There’s a way that could be taken that’s making me imagine the Trumpeters getting uncomfortable visits from the Secret Service.
