On Thursday, right-wing talk show host Michael Savage couldn’t contain his glee at the prospect of Donald Trump actually winning the presidential election, once again showering the GOP frontrunner with praise, this time for making a speech criticizing immigration on the Texas border town of Laredo.

After a caller said that Trump won’t be able to work with other policymakers, Savage said that Trump should simply rule by decree:

We have Obama who has dug his heels in and is ruling by fiat. He’s not ruling with the consent of the opposition party. We have a de facto dictatorship right now, we need a de facto dictatorship from the other side of the aisle for 50 years to straighten out the mess that was created from Bill Clinton going forward. I disagree with you, if what we have devolved to in this nation is no longer a nation of checks and balances and no longer a nation of ruling by consensus but ruling by decree, then I would say then Trump is even more important than ever because let him rule by decree and let him straighten the country out and let him start with a fence on the Mexican border. He can probably order that fence built by the illegals themselves.

Later in the program, Savage described Trump as the bold white leader Americans have been praying for all this time.

“We’ve finally seen a white man with you know what,” Savage said. “Finally a white man stood up with you know what and said ‘go to hell’ to his enemies and if you don’t like it go take a walk. America’s been waiting for him, they’ve been praying for him.”

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers."
