Why Christian conservatives supported Trump — and why they might regret it

https://www.vox.com/2017/10/4/16346800/donald-trump-christian-right-conservative-clinton


Eighty percent of white evangelical voters voted for Donald Trump in the November election.

For many of these self-described “value voters,” Trump was a walking contradiction of nearly everything they claim to believe in — a vulgar, thrice-married real estate tycoon whose brand is built on money, women, and debauchery.

Still, they voted for him. The question is why?

I and the others voted for Trump because he was the ONLY choice when compared to the alternative.  We also read the bible and know from it that sometimes God uses imperfect men to accomplish his goals.  Trump also has pretty much kept his promises (or tried to) and the economy shows it.

The harder the left tries to 'get him' and puts him down, the more likely he's going to have a 2nd term. 

No matter what, he's for America first and that's what we want.  A return to a strong America that other countries look UP to and FEAR.  I'm proud of him and what he's done and will do before he leaves.

You are proud of a man who sold out the United States to Russia, a country that has targeted us with its newest ICBM, named "Satan 2"?

Tell an idiot you are his friend and he will support/follow you.  The dumber people are, the slower they are to see the lies.

Add to that the fact that ALL people, even the smartest ones, tend to base their judgements on belief not proof.

Finally, drowning men clutch at straws - and in this pond the alternatives were not a boat, raft or even a log, but just a fairly rotten twig or two.

So, no amount of "crying in the wilderness" or "playing Cassandra" will help one iota in these arguments.  You are probably going to have to simply wait for the big bang.  There have been a few preliminary pops, but deafness is not easily cured either.


Absence of proof is not proof of absence.

Ps.  I am not a Christian and not prepared to lie about it, but I know my ten commandments and the two additions/clarifications Jesus added.  I try to follow them dilligently, as they offer the basis of a sound and good morality.  I am having some difficulty with the sermon on the mount, this is why:

 "judge not and ye shall jot be judged."  is becoming impossible for me, so I hope the judgement I eventually receive is at least understanding of my reasons.

America is a great country to live in already, but has an international reputation for being a "fair weather friend".  It also benefits from an unfair international economic bias, driven/sustained, at least in part, by its huge power basis.  That is why so many people appear to both hate America and yet want to live there.  (I do neither, by the way.)

Yet, many folk, who claim to be Christians, think this is acceptable,  they put economic success before healthcare and care in general, for the poor,  ignore the suffering of the unfortunate and support a gigantic liar.  I judge that as indefensibly unchristian.  You cannot serve both God and Mamon.

I can't see Trump as the Antichrist, he is just an ordinary psychopath*, but he does speak of peace whilst risking war, and a really big war at that.  I cannot say that economic growth is a bad thing.  But, I do see the benefits of this way of boosting the economy as being illusory for all but the very, very rich, and temporary too, especially as this is the first time Trump has been in a position with no effective bankruptcy option.  I can't even say the opposition would have done much better, I don't believe they would.  But, I can say that Trump's policies, propaganda and intentions are immoral, unprincipled and indefensible.


*Most CEOs are.
