Ole Anthony Explains Why Televangelists Hop Aboard the Trump Shuttle

Christian Post reporter Michael Gryboski recently asked Ole Anthony here at the Trinity Foundation what he thought about televangelist Mike Murdock’s endorsement of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Anthony told CP that “it’s not surprising that Murdock is drawn to Donald Trump, because both of them like making outrageous statements.”  Ole also said, “Mike Murdock’s endorsement of Trump – along with the whole spate of pastoral political endorsements – is an attempt to get credibility and to be ‘next to power.’ Spiritually, it’s the worst kind of heresy.”   Read the article here.

Forgive our tongue-in-cheek headline … Trump’s company, the “Trump Shuttle” went broke.   “The Trump Shuttle never turned a profit and collapsed within a year. Because he had taken out so much debt to finance the project, Trump was forced to default on his loans and lost the company to his creditors,” according to the National Review, which also reported that Trump praised China’s government for its handling of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1990.

    Above all, we need to pray for his salvation. This is frightening. How can one country have so many gullible people. What a money hungry civilization we are. Priest’s molesting children and so called evangelicals chasing money above all else. This is sickening.

  2. Donald Trump is a business man. Just because one of his companies folded does not make him unfit for business or to run for President. Anyone who is engaged in business understands at the level Mr. Trump is engaged you will have profitable investments and others that fail. In business, you judge the entire portfolio which, for Mr. Trump, is incredibly strong. Thus, he can fund his campaign and not bow to special interest groups like every other person running. I was a Cruze supporter until I realized, he’s just another politician and is bought by special interest groups.

    Another thought: Mr. Trump has no control over who chooses to endorse him. And, probably has never heard of Mike Murdock. If Murdock wants to give to the Trump campaign and can influence his followers to vote for Trump all the better for Mr. Trump. The ballot box does not discriminate. You may have disdain for Murdock but I personally have served in three branches of the Armed Services to defend his right to freedom of speech and religion – even though his manipulation of Christianity in my opinion is grotesque and evil.

    I very much appreciate your foundation being a watchdog for religious fraud and corruption. Keep up the good fight in that area but I suggest you stay away opining on business and politics.
