For the second year in a row, The Babylon Bee is proud to present our coveted Christian of the Year award to Donald J. Trump.
Each year since this award was conceived, which was last year, we recognize one Christian who stood head and shoulders above the rest, fighting for the gospel and defending the church of Jesus Christ.
We considered awarding it to local pastors who fight for their congregations through thick and thin. We thought of the missionaries spreading the gospel abroad, no matter the personal cost. We even thought of the people who subscribe to The Babylon Bee and allow holy satire to go forth from our golden lighthouse of truth.
But in the end -- let's be honest -- there was really ever only one person we could give this award to: the man who saved Christmas. The man who ensured God's will could continue to be done by packing the courts with Republicans. The man who stood bravely as a tide of liberalism threatened to wash our country down the drain and stemmed the tide with his bare hands of persimmon hue.
That man is President Donald Trump.
Thank you for your service, Mr. Trump, and congratulations on the award!
Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee
