Bible salesman Trump commits many sins the Good Book preaches against

Selling high-priced Bibles to people who often can’t afford them has long been a shady business. After all, many religious organizations give away free Bibles, going back more than a century to the Gideons who put Bibles in hotel rooms (to this day). And these days it’s easy to find various versions of the Old and New Testaments online in the language of your choice.

But this Holy Week, we saw a new purveyor of high-priced Bibles—the same man who brought us Trump steaks, Trump water, Trump wine, and more recently gold Trump Never Surrender sneakers. Former president Donald Trump is now pitching the “God Bless the USA Bible” for $59.99.

It’s a new grift that liberal Protestant theologian Jim Wallis, writing in The Daily Beast, says not only makes Trump “a heretic and an idolator but endangers his immortal soul.”
