Trump Preaches to the Choir in Meeting With Evangelicals

As a divisive, thrice-married billionaire with a relatively casual relationship with Christianity, Donald Trump’s meeting Tuesday with hundreds of powerful evangelical Christian conservatives smacked of an ancient Biblical test, one in which a condemned man is thrown before bloodthirsty lions to determine the power of his faith.

Yet like the proverbial Daniel, a man of strong belief who was rescued by angels, Trump emerged from the closed-door meeting in New York City without a metaphorical scratch – and with a standing ovation for telling his audience what they’d hoped to hear.

Declaring religious liberty is “the No. 1 issue,” Trump reportedly said he’d appoint anti-abortion judges, would end a federal ban on political endorsements by religious institutions that have tax-exempt status and would get the country to say “Merry Christmas” again.

“I think maybe that will be my greatest contribution to Christianity – and other religions, is to allow you, when you talk religious liberty, to go and speak openly and if you like somebody or want somebody to represent you, you should have the right to do it,” Trump said, according to The Washington Post.

  • Trump, right now, has the greatest advantage to getting close to God. He needs to, so God can guide him in the right direction to help all people in this Country. There have been more than one rich man in the bible that God helped to guide others, and they loved God for his wisdom. God will send the proper people to Trump to explain things he doesn’t understand now. If God wants Trump as President [ as God sets up kings…for good reasons and for us to learn lessons ] He will help him get in and I hope this time people begin to listen and do the right thing, plus use common sense.

    So we have a choice between two people who claim to be Christians. One has multiple marriages and the other embraces an industry which murders over a million babies per year. That isn’t a hard choice for me to make.

    Hillary may claim to be a devout Methodist but she seems to leave her religion at church. The Bible speaks against murder, lying and sexual immorality. If Hillary is elected president she will pack the Supreme Court with people who will uphold every ungodly thing that is brought before them. Hillary claims to be a Christian but I haven’t seen much proof.

      Three marriages VS a million dead babies ..hum..not a hard choice at all. Go TRUMP.

      Hillary is a lesbian and no one can be a Christian and do such a thing that is an abomination to God Almighty.

    Many Christians have been divorced and remarried. Trump’s wives still speak highly of him. All his children are successful and love him. Every time anyone has tried to interview anyone close to Trump, staff, his butler they are so disappointed to find that they have only praise for him, saying he is kind and generous.

    King David murdered the husband of Bathsheba so he could have her, Sampson was a womanizer, St. Paul killed Christians so don’t go there. Sometimes it appears the Almighty picks those who have done things contrary to doctrine because who better to understand sin than a sinner?

    Who has the right to question what is in his heart? His actions through the years towards our vets and to others and to charity speaks out more than anything O or Hillary or any of those hypocritical beings ever did. Where is Hillary’s Christianity? Where is Billy’s and by the way where is O’s and Michelles? Isn’t it O that has said unsavory things about Christianity all over the place? Praising Islam and hating on Christianity?

    These Evangelicals see the dark waiting for them at the end of another Progressive tunnel and the light at the end of Trumps tunnel. They are heading for the light and maybe once again Americans can practice the True Religions of Peace not the religion of a Piece of this one and a Piece of that one that O and Hillary and all love so much.
