Trump, the Reformation and Halloween


Trump, the Reformation and Halloween

By Julio Severo
President Donald Trump had abundant good reasons to celebrate the Protestant Reformation on October 31, 2017.
* The United States was founded by a population 98 percent Protestant.
* The first U.S. President, George Washington, was Protestant. In fact, all the U.S. presidents were Protestants, except for Catholic John F. Kennedy and the religiously half-bred Islamic-Protestant Barack Obama.
* No other nation in the world promoted so much Protestantism and Bible reading as the United States did. Some U.S. presidents even helped Bible societies.
* No other nation in the world sent so many Protestant missionaries as the United States did. America gave the world Christian giants as Billy Graham, Rex Humbard, Pat Robertson and many other evangelical leaders who blessed the nations.
Yet, Trump’s White House did not celebrate the landmark 500 years of Reformation. It was a historic date, and Trump ignored it. It speaks volumes about his respect for the Christian values that founded the United States.
What did he celebrate on October 31?
Halloween Celebration in the White House
A simple Google search shows that Trump spent October 31 celebrating Halloween.
A simple Google search also shows that while other Western governments were celebrating the Reformation, Trump was not.
The USNews reported: “The Trumps Celebrate Halloween at the White House.”
The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), of Pat Robertson, in a report titled “Paganism and Witchcraft: The Dark Reality of Halloween,” said, “many do not realize there’s a darker reality to this celebration and it is steeped in paganism and witchcraft.” Trumps knows CBN, because Robertson interviewed exclusively an apparently Christian Trump earlier this year.
In an article in the Charisma magazine’s website titled “Is Halloween Evil? Why Witches, Occultists and Satanists Celebrate Halloween and Why You Should Not,” author Michael Snyder said, “Halloween night is one of the biggest nights of the year for witches, occultists and Satanists.”

Liking it or not, Trump sided with witches, occultists and Satanists and shrugged Protestantism.
To celebrate Satan was more important to him than to celebrate the Christian movement that made America great.
Poor America! She has not a government recognizing the Christian values that founded her.
Such ingratitude is most welcome by Muslims, witches, occultists and Satanists, who are fighting to impose their own religious values to America.
Perhaps next time when Trump needs votes in an election, he should try witches, occultists and Satanists, since he has despised evangelical voters who gave him the victory.
