Trump 2024!!!!!!!
Sorry couldn't resist.

The Christians I run in to do support Trump. I don't think you are thinking this through clearly if you believe Christians are supporting him for Christian reasons though.

Support for the state of Israel, abortion, gun ownership and religious liberty rights. These are the reasons I notice, not because of his Christian values. The man is a ass afterall, and I assume most Christians even realize this.

There is a certain delusionalism that right wingers often succumb to. Unfortunately for them, they are the ones who erroneously believe they are supporting Trump for "Christian" reasons when, in fact, more often than not, their thoughts and actions are not Christian in any way.

Christian values by their nature are those of integrity and honesty. A handful of years ago the Republican party (the one that claimed to be guided by moral principles and integrity) imposed a rule where a president could not nominate a judge for the supreme court in his final year. They even had a lawyer/judge speak in defense of this idea:





Irony of ironies! That same speaker has now been nominated for the supreme court under the very conditions she criticized when a Democrat tried to make such an appointment.


Again, this is proof that support for Trump is contrary to Christian values.

You must run into different Trump supporters then I do.

Again, I don't see Christians supporting him for Christian values like you are trying to make it seem like they are doing. They support him for his support for the state of Israel, abortion, gun ownership and religious liberty rights.

For me, your entire Christian values argument is way off base and doesn't reflect what is actually happening (from my piont of view), so not much I can comment on besides letting you know that I don't perceive happening what you do.
You can give a man a fish and he will be fed for a day, or you can teach a man to pray for fish and he will starve to death.

I blame man for codifying those rules into a book which allowed superstitious people to perpetuate a barbaric practice. Rules that must be followed or face an invisible beings wrath. - KenRU

If you are unable to demonstrate that what you believe is true and you absolve yourself of the burden of proof, then what is the purpose of your arguments? - brunumb
