In fact, as a video posted by Bloomberg News’ William Turton shows, CPAC will even feature a literal gold statue of the former twice-impeached one-term president, who will also be a keynote speaker at the event.
Many Twitter users noted that a gold Trump statue would seem to violate biblical commandments against idolatry, and it drew comparisons to the golden calf idol destroyed by Moses in the Old Testament.
Check out some reactions below.
Worshipping the Golden Calf was *really bad*, prophets say. (Exodus 32:8). Worshipping the Golden Jackass seems Even Worse. #CPAC2021 https://t.co/GhfKuhejuL

I mean, everyone knows Trump has violated a bunch of the 10 Commandments and they still supported him so what’s a golden idol among friends? https://t.co/oyzNTbne3V

You really can’t make this shit up.
1st 2 Commandments.
You Shall Have No Other Gods Before Me.
You Shall Not Make Idols.
According to the Bible, the golden calf was an idol made by the Israelites when Moses went up to Mount Sinai. Also known as the Sin of the Calf. https://t.co/opN43JUrP8

We always knew these MAGAts and evangelicals were fake Christian heretics. They finally broke out the golden calf.
