    Majority of Public Calls Trumpís Bible Signing in Alabama Inappropriate

    Majority of Public Calls Trump’s Bible Signing Inappropriate

    Even a plurality of white evangelical Protestants agree

    Most Christians say it was inappropriate for President Donald Trump to sign Bibles earlier this month.

    President Donald Trump made headlines earlier this month when he signed a number of Bibles while visiting an Alabama community recovering from a series of deadly tornadoes, drawing theological and political criticism from some quarters as others wrote the story off as mostly media spin.
    A new Morning Consult poll shows majorities of most Christian groups say the president’s actions were inappropriate, with even white evangelical Protestants — an important Republican voting bloc — more likely to say the move was inappropriate than appropriate.

    The gesture of signing Bibles is quite common and harmless on the surface, experts said; several presidents, including Ronald Reagan, signed Bibles.
    What makes the incident at Providence Baptist Church different is white evangelicals’ full embrace of “God and country,” according to John Fea, a professor at the Christian school Messiah College. He noted Trump serves as a balm for many Christian nationalists, who see their pews empty amid the country’s cultural and demographic shift.

    White evangelical Protestants shrank from 21 to 13 percent of the country between 2003 and 2017, per ABC News. The group stands out from other religious demographics on issues such as abortion and the U.S.-Mexico border wall. The largest “religious” group in the country is the religiously unaffiliated, at 25.3 percent in 2017.

    So what is some people get their Bible signed by Trump? Fake issue.

    They can just slap a Justin Amash sticker over it when he becomes president.

    Is it OK to sign copies of a book somebody else wrote? What about signing body parts?

    I am Zippy and I approve of this post. But you don't have to.

    This is an old tradition in evangelical/fundamentalist circles. You don’t hear of it very much any more except in more rural areas. I’m sure I have a Bible around here that has been signed by some one.

    Strange tradition. I'm surprised evangelicals would treat a bible like it's an autograph book.

    ďThe right to life is the source of all rightsóand the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.Ē
