Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo belong to a doomsday cult — and may be trying to bring on the apocalypse

President Donald Trump’s vice president and secretary of state appear to have a conflict between their private religious beliefs and their public duties, according to a financial journalist.

Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo are each a “genuine, end-of-days, believer in the apocalypse,” and Financial Times journalist Edward Luce said their religious beliefs about the end times exerts a troubling influence on their duties.

“Generally I believe a public figure’s beliefs should be irrelevant to their job,” Luce wrote. “Whether they’re atheist, Opus Dei, Buddhist or Muslim, should have no bearing on our assessment of their fitness for office. Yet I can’t help but feel anxious that both of Donald Trump’s main global envoys, Pompeo and Pence, have a conflict between their private beliefs and what they publicly claim to be doing.”

Luce argued that both Trump administration officials were part of a “millenarian cult,” and he worried their “militant creed” would influence their public policies to spark a “final conflagration in which the righteous will vanquish the wicked.”

    I saw a documentary once about a local cult. They interviewed (among others) a young man about to get married. Asked about his plans and where he would like to be in 5 years, he replied “married, some kids, a higher position in the community”, that sort of thing.

    Then he was asked about his plans for 10 years ahead:

    “Oh, jesus will have returned by then. I don’t need to plan that far ahead”. (End SOT)

    If these politicians are convinced the world is going to apocalypse soon, how can they be expected to see the “big picture” for the future of the country, and, y’know, do their job? Report abuse

    If these politicians are convinced the world is going to apocalypse soon, how can they be expected to see the “big picture” for the future of the country, and, y’know, do their job?

    This mindset is readily apparent in the fundamentalist Christian American politicians Middle East foreign policy. The carte blanche obsequious treatment of Israel in the form of billions of dollars in cash and military equipment gifts and the turning of the blind eye to the destruction of the Palestinians leads to the short term fulfillment of the reestablishment of the Biblical state of Israel necessary to bring on the apocalypse. All the suffering caused by this repulsive situation can be seen as necessary collateral damage to those in the self-deluded state of oneness with Christ.

    How in the world can we trust these brainwashed robots to act in anyone’s best interests except for themselves and their own fellow cultists? They’re dangerous. Report abuse
