  1. Marie Wood needs a Thug Life montage. Marie Wood for president in 2020, oh wait she has a far more important job like being a mother of 4, a wife and a Christian. That may have sounded sarcastic but it wasn't. Let David Wood run for president instead

  2. What does it say about your spiritual state of being when you call anyone, especially an unbeliever, a "moron?"

    "…whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of the fiery hell." -Jesus, Matthew 5

    "For what business is it of mine to judge outsiders (non-believers)? Do you not judge those who are within the church [to protect the church as the situation requires]? God alone sits in judgment on those who are outside [the faith]. Remove the wicked one from among you [expel him from your church]." The Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 5

    Further, it amazes me that those outside the (apostate) Church (namely, Meryl Streep, here, and Saturday Night Live, Steven Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, among others, elsewhere) recognize Trump's vile, vulgar, immoral, hedonistic behavior and are "sarcastically" calling him out for it… without resorting to name-calling. Meanwhile, the (apostate) evangelical Church defends Trump while he stands unrepentant in his wicked, immoral, unrighteous ways.

    To add insult to the (apostate) Church's self-inflicted injury, many have the audacity to allow Trump to falsely claim that he is a born-again Christian for their personal gain (Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell, Jr., Robert Jeffress, etc.), and propagate that lie, themselves. Since Trump and others claim that he a born-again Christian, a member of the Church, he/they have opened himself up for judgment by true believers.

    "Produce fruit that is consistent with repentance [demonstrating new behavior that proves a change of heart, and a conscious decision to turn away from sin]…" John the Baptist, Matthew 3

    "But you have turned aside from the way. You have caused many to stumble by your instruction." -Malachi 2

    "Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first [that is, the great rebellion, the abandonment of the faith by professed Christians]…" -The Apostle Paul, 2 Thessalonians 2

    "But [in those days] false prophets arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will subtly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned. And in their greed they will exploit you with false arguments and twisted doctrine. Their sentence [of condemnation which God has decreed] from a time long ago is not idle [but is still in force], and their destruction anddeepening misery is not asleep [but is on its way].." -The Apostle Peter, 2 Peter 2

    "For certain people have crept in unnoticed [just as if they were sneaking in by a side door]. They are ungodly persons whose condemnation was predicted long ago, for they distort the grace of our God into decadence and immoral freedom [viewing it as an opportunity to do whatever they want], and deny and disown our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ . . . Woe to them! For they have gone the [defiant] way of Cain, and for profit they have run headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of [mutinous] Korah. These men are hidden reefs [elements of great danger to others] in your love feasts when they feast together with you without fear, looking after [only] themselves; [they are like] clouds without water, swept along by the winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted and lifeless; wild waves of the sea, flinging up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of deep darkness has been reserved forever." -The Apostle Judas Thaddaeus, The Book of Jude

    “But all these things (that is, misleading many in deception by misusing Christ's name or claiming to be Him, wars and rumors of war, famines and earthquakes) are merely the beginning of birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish and the time of unprecedented trouble].
    Then they will hand you over to [endure] tribulation, and will put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
    At that time many will be offended and repelled [by their association with Me] AND WILL FALL AWAY [from the One whom they should trust] and will betray one another [handing over believers to their persecutors] and will hate one another.
    Many false prophets will appear and mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, the love of most people will grow cold." -Jesus, Matthew 24

    I am not defending Meryl as if she is a believer, but, certainly, I am defending her as an unbeliever who recognizes the wickedness and grossly obvious immorality in Trump, while she, herself, is in need of the Savior.

    If you want to say that Meryl is an unbeliever, then that may fly rightly with God. Even so, unlike Trump, she does not demonstrate or revel in vile, vulgar, wicked, immoral behavior, personally. (She may do so while acting as characters in movies, but personally, she does not bring such behavior to the table of public scrutiny.)

    According to Jesus' correct teaching of God's precepts, we are warned not to call Meryl "a moron," "a fool," "an idiot," etc. Hence, my need for repentance and then consistently producing the fruit of repentance by refraining from calling Trump "a moron," "a fool," or "an idiot." It is certainly permissible for me to call out his godless, immoral words and behaviors, especially if he is going to continue to discredit Christianity by claiming to be a born-again Christian.

    The vast majority of evangelicals in the Church who defend or accept Trump, along with his immoral, disgusting, adulterous, hedonistic behaviors, are symptomatic of a heart and spiritual problem of an apostate Church. Nothing has derailed my husband's journey toward Jesus like Trump and a Church that defends, supports and accepts him.

    The greater evangelical Church has fallen away from their Savior and are now causing others to stumble, especially the ones who are weak in faith or seeking God's truth but now find their morals higher than that of those in the (apostate) Church. Obviously, for those who were seeking God, they see no need for a savior if their sense of morality, justice, mercy and benevolence is greater than that of the Church… and the President they defend and accept as their own. The American evangelical, conservative Church has lost its saltiness and is no longer a light on a hill.

    “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its taste (purpose), how can it be made salty? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and walked on by people [when the walkways are wet and slippery].
    You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
    Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven." -Jesus, Matthew 5

    "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe and trust in Me to stumble [that is, to sin or lose faith], it would be better for him if a heavy millstone [one requiring a donkey’s strength to turn it] were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea." -Jesus, Mark 9

    If you think Meryl was in no position to properly address the issue of Trump's lack of morals when it comes to women and sex, and justice and mercy when it comes to caring for poor and sick people as well as non-white and/or non-Christian minorities, then you ought to remember what Jesus had to say about Trump and people like him:

    "But when the Son of Man comes in His glory and majesty and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him [for judgment]; and He will separate them from one another, as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right [the place of honor], and the goats on His left [the place of rejection]…
    …Then He will say to those on His left, 'Leave Me, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels (demons); for I was hungry, and you gave Menothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me [with help and ministering care].’
    Then they also [in their turn] will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or as a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to You?’
    Then He will reply to them, ‘I assure you and most solemnly say to you, to the extent that you did not do it for one of the least of these [my followers], you did not do it for Me.’
    Then these will go away into eternal (unending) punishment, but those who are righteous and in right standing with God [will go, by His remarkable grace] into eternal (unending) life.” -Jesus, Matthew 25

    "Help, Lord, for the godly man ceases to be,
    For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
    They speak falsehood to one another;
    With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak.
    May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
    The tongue that speaks great things;
    Who have said, 'With our tongue we will prevail;
    Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?'
    'Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, now I will arise,' says the Lord; 'I will set him in the safety for which he longs.'
    The words of the Lord are pure words;
    As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.
    You, O Lord, will keep them;
    You will preserve him from this generation forever.
    The wicked strut about on every side
    When vileness is exalted among the sons of men." -Psalm 12

    "…when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” -Jesus, Luke 18

  3. Trump is a lying, vile, vulgar degenerate who is in need of Jesus. Let's hope and pray that Trump finds Jesus, makes Him Lord of his life, before he finds the lowest depths of hell.

    Never has a person so severely tested my ability to love my enemy and pray him. However, listening to Nabeel's testimony and his emphasis on love and seeing people as those for whom God died, has touched me and enabled me to recalibrate.

    I have become so disgusted with Trump and his supporters, especially his evangelical supporters. I have stumbled in my willingness to unconditionally love the arrogant, vile, hedonistic, grotesque and unlovable Trump. The Holy Spirit has certainly been convicting and working with me since Trump and his supporters have become the biggest source of transgression, because, in response to Trump's vileness, I end up sinning in my anger.

    I have been praying daily, sometimes hourly, for God to help me see Trump the way He sees him: a man in need of a Savior. I have been asking the Lord to forgive me for calling Trump names, for cursing Trump. I have been asking God to cleanse me from this unrighteousness, to create in me a clean heart and renew in me a right spirit. Interestingly, it is Nabeel's testimony and his Holy Spirit inspired reiteration of the importance of loving our enemies and praying for them that has brought me closer to my heart's desire to see Trump as one for whom God died and who is desperately in need of Jesus.

    Trump is one of the few seemingly irredeemable people I have known, but I know that Trump's redeemability is ultimately God's call, not mine. And if God can save a murderous Pharisee like Saul and an immoral atheist like David Wood, then He can certainly save Trump! Sadly, I doubt Trump will allow his selfish, aggrandizing, arrogant, boastful, lying, opulent self to bow his knee and confess with his mouth that Jesus is Lord, but we all know he'll have no choice one day.

    I will continue to pray that God will be merciful by removing Trump from office. However, if that is not God's plan… if Trump is in office so that God can bring His judgment to His own backsliden, deceived house, first, and to unbelievers lastly… then I pray God shows mercy in judgment.

  4. t
    Merylhis was certainly your worst ackt you ever performed
    you are living in a cloud far far away
    it can simply called beyond reality
    it is the cloud of utter most stupidity

    i suggest you get in touch with your favorite head shrink
    or better, look for the truth
    and the truth will set you free

  5. If you are to ban any group that threatens the liberties of USA citizens, you should ban the neo-fascist, so called "liberal" party and the nazi-misandrist feminist extreme movement of today. Also the rassist BLM who should be called T(hug)LM or K(ill)A(ll)W(hites).

  6. I have never seen Meryl Streep playing a good part in a movie, Meryl Streep you are much less art than the MMA, I used to train karate for many years, you wouldn't repeat any of that movements, but anybody can repeat your poor quality performances… Sayonara, old, embittered woman

  7. Actors: they stand where someone else tells them, and say what someone else writes…and that's it folks. They are amongst the most unimportant occupational group there is.

  8. There is an art to almost everything. How dumb of her to imply that acting was the only form. If anything, it's the worst form. Youre just pretending to be somebody else.

  9. Ms. Streep, by being a progressive democrat, is necessarily a moron. The only question remaining is whether or not she's a martyr; unfortunately, In order to qualify for martyrdom miss Streep would need to be dead. So until someone kills her for being a progressive moron she not a martyr, just a moron.

  10. This chick is almost as irritating as Myril Streep. Plus she's a Never Trumper. She seems like a leftist SJW who "converted" to conservatism but is still sarcastically irritating. Plus WTH is that irritating music in the background?!
