My response


Disclaimer, I'm not particularly religious, but I am a believer in morals, and Trump has none. I just wanted to rebut a Tumper on his supposed terrain

 

My respone to an angry Trumper:

 

Accused Of High And Mighty

 

I stand accused of high and mighty, in the court of comments and response, I don't quite understand it, but I'll mount my defense. You accuse me of hating the bible, saying I preach a good game, even while you're preaching at me, simply because I had the nerve to speak ill of your boy Trump, let me begin by saying 'who are you to judge me?' Are you God himself? A verse in Mathew-7.1, tells us to 'judge not, that ye be not judged'. Let me continue, you call yourself a Christian, yet support a con man who clearly isn't. They say actions are louder than words, except in his case they're not, he's all talk and no cattle, or something like that. He's accomplished next to nothing while bragging he's the best President ever. Answer me these;

 

 

is it Christian to deport kids who this is the only home they've ever known, punish them for the crimes of their parents, whose only crime is wanting a better life for their children? Is it Christian to make fun of a handicapped man at a press conference? Is it Christian to defend an accused wife beater? Is it Christian to take away healthcare for millions? Is it Christian to brag about the size of a certain organ? Is it Christian to champion such a man as a worthy role model for children? And the list grows hourly, it seems. You support a man with an inability to feel empathy about any other human being on the face of the planet, yet accuse me of hating the bible? Maybe instead of lashing out at me, you should read it through again.

I am reminded of the line from Matthew, 7: 5 here for those who want to slam you for your valid points and give credence to someone who obviously does not read it (the Bible) like some of us. Its been a reported FACT that this guy does not read but has others read things to him and paraphrase things at best including briefings on National Security. He gets all his information from certain NEWS sources (I use this term loosely). Don't let the idiot blind sheep bother you. They will follow HIM over the edge of the abysse. The rest of intelligent people see the truth here. Good job Mike. Keep it up and let the haters chase their own tails like they always do.

Thanks, Jim, and I just hope the country's not ripped apart before the pinwheel into the abyss. I can't claim to be very religious, but if you're going to throw hating the bible in my face--fight fire with fire!

Very well said, Mike. As a Christian, I resent the need to drag religion into political debates (which seems to happen a lot in the States and some other countries as well), and I resent even more the kind of judgmental attitude you describe. You are entitled to your own opinion, and disliking Trump for his policies or his behavior should have nothing to do with anyone's religious affiliation. And I also resent the desire of some Christians to pigeonhole our faith into some political ideology. Give the Caesar what belongs to the Caesar, and to God what belongs to God.

Thanks, Oleg--it seems that the line between church and state has been erased. And I don't understand evangelicals blindly following a President who's words and actions are so much the opposite of what they believe

I don't think you actually know any of Trumps policies, you just whine that he's mean. Most, if not all, of the "points" you make are clearly just things you read off CNN article titles. DACA just incentivizes people to immigrate illegally. As for for the domestic abuse thing, come on, she clearly just wanted a piece of his money. And Obamacare just raised insurance rates for those who have insurance, while forcing those who had Obamacare to pay for borderline worthless health insurance. Religion doesn't have anything to do with it.

While I appreciate you reviewing this, I feel bad for you that you've obviously drank the Kool-Aid

In my 70+ years, I've been a U.S. Democrat and then a Republican, now I register as an Independent because both sides have moved so far to the right and the left that they no-longer represent the middle-class; the ones who pay the bills. --- I am also a Christian and resent the very idea that Christianity is any less divers than politics; you are where you live and must fit in. --- If history has taught us anything, The Caesars will always be the person trying to play the fiddle while Rome burns, it's what they do because Old-Money Rich do not think like the general populous. --- People politics has always been about voting for the person who You Think might do the least harm. I guess you've found that it is not an exact science.

Thanks, J. E: as a Christian, I'll ask you, why do so many so-called evangelicals support a man who goes against everything they profess to believe? I just don't get it
