Letter: How does Sanders define 'God'?

To the Editor:

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders made an interesting statement about God and Trump.

My questions, if anyone could answer, are:

1) How does Sanders define “God”?

2) How does one discern between God allowing people to elect a person for president and/or making a person the president of the United States?

3) If one accepts the Jewish/Christian Bible that God made everything, including the wicked for the day of evil (Proverbs 16:4, etc ), which includes, of course, Michael the Archangel, Lucifer, the Devil, even humans like Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, but also Presidents George Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Reagan, Obama, Trump and all leader of all nations, every person in all circles of the living and dead, then is it or not a matter of preference, the foundation of championing a person and/or political ideology?

We know there are three monotheistic faiths, Jewish, Christianity, Islam, with sacred teachings and dogma, along with many other ways of being, like Buddhism. All have behavioral proverbs and revelations in the United States and across the globe, to help us get along and experience living.

Each individual has a concept of the idea of the title and word “God.” No doubt, it is true, theologically speaking, for believers that “God can trump us.” Like Pogo had said, “We met the enemy and the enemy is us,” like “A Fire in Paradise,” or the “God of the Law of Nature” (reference in Declaration of Independence) leaving the eerie ephemeral image from a hurricane Florence (meaning "blossoming") that reflects our sad state of a divided union being torn at the waving red stripes.

For if we say, “God is a supreme being,” than we have many "Gods." If we say that the de dicta, “God,” the word or title, refers to de re “The Supreme Being,” that is “One God.”

But what about those who do not believe in "God" and no ironic "coincidences" exist, suggesting that religion and state should be separate?”
