Serving Her Lord and Savior

During her rant below, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (emphasis hers) tells a reporter

Excuse me. Let me correct you and this is really important. I don't worship- I worship God. God- and Jesus is my savior. I don't worship President Trump and I'm really sick and tired of the bullshit antics I have to deal with constantly from the Democrats. So that's what we just went through in there. And then they're sitting there. They can't attack my character all day long. What's his face in there- whoever was talking last- was calling me insane but yet we can't say "oh, they're attacking my character."

How soon (over the course of maybe 62 days maybe 62 days) they forget.  

On April 2, 2024, Representative Greene stood outside of New York County Supreme Court to exalt Donald Trump soon before he was to be arraigned. by Judge Juan Merchan. She told Right Side Broadcasting host (also boyfriend) Brian Glenn "Trump is joining some of the most incredible people in history being arrested today. Nelson Mandela was arrested, served time in prison. Jesus- Jesus was arrested and murdered by the Roman government."

It's possible that Marjorie Taylor Greene, despite her protestation to the country, is no admirer of Jesus Christ- and of Nelson Mandela, though that's less likely. More likely, she does like Jesus, in which case "I don't worship President Trump" is a brazen lie. And as Jesus is quoted as saying 

One way to demonstrate that she does not worship Donald Trump is to acknowledge that the latter is not "President Trump." (The media should correct or at least question Republicans who refer to Trump in the present tense as "the President" or "President Trump" but miracles are uncommon.) Of course, she won't do that because she does worship Donald Trump, referring to him as "President Trump," not because she's intimidated by him but because she deeply admires him.

She's not alone. There no longer are MAGA Republicans and "moderate Republicans." There are only Republicans who are afraid of a Trump-endorsed candidate opposing them, and Republicans who are all in on what they believe he is doing for their party. Unless she's an even better actor than her savior Donald Trump, Representative Greene is in the latter category. 

In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as maintaining "No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

Nor can one serve both God and Donald J. Trump. She can claim otherwise but Marjorie Taylor Greene has made her choice and it's not the one described in the Old and New Testaments.
