    Trump is not an admirable man.
    And neither was Hillary.

    But we still have to vote for one of them right?

    So considering you have to people that are not admirable you must base your decision off of something else.

    Like their political views.

    Not rocket science here.

    Just found this post on Google,so will bring it up again.

    I love how the right can still justify voting for Trump. One of the worst,if not the worst President of all times.

    He is revengeful, full of hate,a liar, braggart,and yet you still insisthe was the lesser evil.. He is destroying what protections we have,denying global warming, backed a child molester. Is making money off the White House.

    His past is now coming to light. His crooked dealings in business. He,himself is a serial sexual deviant. We know that because we heard him brag about it.

    He is undermining our Government Agencies and doing everything he can to hide his own mistakes.

    He claims Jesus is a fan of mine,yet Evangelicals continue to back him.

    Right wing Religion has become a sickness. And the Republican Party is infected.

    Christians voting their religious interests (I'm not convinced that voting for Trump did this), is not the same as preachers promoting politics from the pulpit, and you know it. Personally, I have no problem with preachers doing this. However, that privilege should be accompanied by a responsibility. The tax-exempt status of churches has always carried the caveat that churches stay out of politics. If churches want to involve themselves in politics, then they should lose their tax-exempt status. This is not about punishment, rather it is about taking responsibility. If you want into the game, you should have to pay the ante that is required.

    They received a blistering answer from me. If I had even thought of going back this did it for me.

    I spent 4 years listenening to a bigoted Preacher preach his hate of Obama,love of guns,against abortion and gays. All because my many friends wanted me to stay.

    Today I am in a Church that teaches one Church, love of all.

    I have a cousin who ran into the same thing and was burned badly by a church that claimed to believe in the teachings of Christ, yet acted in ways that defied those teachings.

    I think the following is interesting also, considering who in America was generally for the "DOMA".

    Highest rates of divorce:
    States With the Highest Rates of Divorce - 24/7 Wall St.

    Knot, you have no idea how many people I know that are simply walking away from Organized Religion because of these so called Evangelicals. Not just the old, but middle aged,the young,who want no part of the hypocracy.

    See my post on Billy Graham’s Granddaughter on Franklyn. The bloom on the rose of Evangelicals is fading fast.

    And I am halfway out the door. My common sense mind does not accept the lies. If I can stay where I hear guidance of living right I will stay. Bigotry and hate will push me out.

    As one who was brought up a Christian, I find it mortifying that these unutterably evil scumbags should be allowed to use the Pauline title of a man I greatly admire.

    Never found one that likes the questions I ask.

    I tend to get blacklisted.

    I go to a place now that is non even a denomination, in fact the "pastor" speaks for like five minutes.

    The rest is just us listening to modern music or discussing things amongst ourselves.
    Christian churches are not obligated to accept non-Christian members.

    The nice thing for Christians supporting Trump is that they're not alone in their hypocrisy. They get to join the fiscal conservatives, the fraudulent Tea Party, family values enthusiasts, and so many more.
