Trump not sheepish about Mussolini quote

(Photo by Brocken Inaglory)
Fascism aside, let’s take a look at the Mussolini quote that self-professed “good Christian” Trump has upheld:  “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”

Jesus seemed to really like sheep, so much so that some of his greatest metaphors feature them.  Many a “good Christian” will surely recognize these biblical sayings:

Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. (John 21:17)

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. (John 10:11)

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

Scary political question of the day:  Could “ravening lions” be equally applicable?
