Prominent Christian University Helps Make Film About God Choosing Trump To Be President. Seriously.

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

There is a new movie coming to 1,200 theaters nationwide this October. The Trump Prophecy is a collaboration between evangelical Liberty University and an independent Christian filmmaker. The topic? That Donald Trump was appointed by God to lead The United States. 

Yes, you read that correctly. 

Students at the university will gain school credit for working on the film in areas such as camera operations, set design, producing, and other skills often used in the movie industry. The film's premise centers around the idea that Trump's election is meant to heal America. 

So far we're not really seeing a lot of healing.

Fundamentalist preacher Jerry Falwell founded Liberty University in 1971. His son, Jerry Falwell Jr., is now the president of the college. Falwell Jr. also happens to be a die-hard Trump supporter and on his evangelical advisory committee. 

Nothing fishy about that, right?
