Gold Trump statue at CPAC draws inevitable Biblical comparisons
There’s a gold statue of Trump being wheeled around CPAC.
reporter William Turton.CPAC is the US’ largest right-wing conference, and attracts Republicans as well as other, more explicitly unsavory elements of the right-wing political spectrum – it usually features speeches, panels, talks, parties, and in previous years, appearances by Trump himself.
The exact origins of the statue are unclear - although it’s likely it was made for the conference. The statue of Trump is wearing star-spangled beach shorts, flip flops and a red tie.People can be heard ooh’ing and aah’ing over the statue. The statue itself has attracted a lot of attention online too.
Some have pointed out that it seems pretty strange for a demographic of people who skewered Christian – and made a big deal out of their faith – to not recognise the parallels between the gold statue and one of the Ten Commandments, which was ‘thou shalt not worship false idols’. headtopics.com
In the Bible, there were several references to golden idols as false idols. One was the golden calf, which was seen as an affront to God. The other was a statue of a King, which was ninety feet high and which was also condemned in the Bible.People also pointed out that it wasn’t just some figurative statement - it was a literal golden statue.
Trump is expected to speak at CPAC this year, where it’s expected that he will directly criticise president Joe Biden and potentially announce another presidential run in 2024. It’s likely he’ll spend a lot of his time discussing his second impeachment trial too, but perhaps he’ll be distracted by his reflection in the shiny gold statue.Read more: The Independent »

Thou shalt not worship false idols Looks like the BIG BOY outside a SHONEY’S the idolatry of the golden calf stemmed from the heart of a people who were “set on evil” (Ex. 32:22). Gee... I wonder why...
