Conservatives made it clear they absolutely worship disgraced former President Donald Trump this week by displaying a gold statue of him at CPAC, which immediately drew wide mockery.
Trump, the only president ever impeached twice and the only one to incite an insurrection to overthrow democracy, is set to be a keynote speaker at the annual conservative event. CPAC has even been relocated to Orlando instead of Washington DC, not only to skirt mask requirements, but to be closer and more convenient for Trump, who is currently residing in Palm Beach at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
The theme of CPAC this year will be on continuing to repeat Trump’s election lies and to justify the insurrection.
According to NPR:
The conference, organized and sponsored by the American Conservative Union, will even keep alive Trump’s false claims of election fraud with several panels on the topic with names like ‘Other Culprits: Why Judges & Media Refused to Look at the Evidence,’ ‘The Left Pulled the Strings, Covered It Up, and Even Admits It’ and ‘Failed States (PA, GA, NV, oh my!).’
Panels and speakers also intend to attack social media platforms and news organizations for not supporting Trump’s lies as facts.
And if that’s not enough to convince you that this event is nothing more than a cult gathering, CPAC is going to display a golden Trump statue, the equivalent of the gold calf idol featured in the Bible, for his supporters to worship.

Conservatives, who claim to be real Christians, are literally going to be worshiping the golden calf at CPAC. And Americans righteously mocked them for it.
Trump the golden calf….

Wow, a literal Golden Idol to be worshipped. This isn’t a cult, no, not at all.

@kevinwalsh_golf didn’t Moses tell the Israelites something about worshipping false idols, or am I misremembering?

I feel like the Bible has some words about a golden calf.

How quickly they have turned aside from the way that I commanded them! They have made for themselves a molten calf and have bowed down to it. They have sacrificed to it and said, ‘These, O Israel, are your gods, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.'”

Bringing in the golden calf for the evangelicals to worship. Do any of them realize what they’re doing?

It’s not only a violation of Christianity, it’s violation of the flag code since the statue is wearing American flag shorts. Clearly, nothing is sacred to these people.
