Sure, it’s stomach-turning and a bit shocking to see Donald Trump signing Bibles. It’s not the tinge of blasphemy and desecration, plenty of people write in Bibles and it’s not that big a deal. What is head-turning to religious and non-religious people alike is just who is signing Bibles.
Do you really want your Bible signed by the guy who separates mothers from babies, had an affair with a porn star while his wife was home with a four-month old baby and is currently doing his best to take food and healthcare away from poor people? If Jesus was still in his grave, he’d be spinning in it.
Donald Trump stands for pretty much the opposite of what is in most of the Bible— paying taxes is for suckers, bigger and bigger military, get as rich as you can and lie to your heart’s content. I’m honestly not as mad at Trump for signing the Bibles as I am at the people who shoved them into his hands to sign. Since they didn’t immediately burst into flames, those books now have a very rich layer of irony right there on their front covers.
