Donald Trump Has Once and For All Exposed Many Republicans as “Christian” Frauds

I’ve made no secret of my disdain concerning the Republican claim that they’re the party for “Christian values.” This is a party that pushes hate, fear, racism, bigotry and vilifies the poor while absurdly claiming that they’re “lovers and followers of Jesus Christ.”

It’s all bullshit.

You don’t have to be all that knowledgable about Christianity to know that you can’t:

  • Push for an economic system that’s driven solely by greed.
  • Oppose giving every American health care.
  • Vilify programs that help the poor when the largest recipients of those programs are the sick, elderly and children.
  • Push fear and hate as a staple of your party’s message.
  • Claim Jesus Christ would be in support of millions of Americans owning stockpiles of weapons, many designed for war.
  • Build economic policies predicated on giving more to the richest among us while taking from the most vulnerable.
  • Portray poor people as “lazy moochers” and “takers.”
  • Pander to and embrace racism and bigotry.

You can’t do all of that, then say your party follows the teachings of Jesus Christ — a man who (even if you don’t believe in him) symbolizes love, hope, acceptance, forgiveness, giving, opposed greed, and spent much of his life helping the poor.

But you damn sure can’t say you’re a Christian and a supporter of Donald Trump. There’s absolutely nothing Christian about him.

If anything, Trump is the antithesis of true Christian values.

Donald Trump is a greedy, narcissistic bully who belittles those he feels are weaker than he is, blatantly pandered to bigotry and built an entire campaign on hate, fueled by fear and paranoia. Donald Trump is someone who made up petty names to attack his opponents, mocked a man with disabilities, belittled POWs and told his Twitter followers to look up the non-existent sex tape of a former Miss Universe because she criticized him.

Donald Trump is a modern-day “anti-Christ.”

If you’re someone who really believes that Jesus Christ would come down to Earth right now and proudly endorse Donald Trump as our next president, all you’re doing is proving that you’re completely clueless about the true values of Christianity — and you certainly don’t know a thing about the teachings of Jesus Christ.

While I’m not presumptive enough to say that Christ would be a Democrat, I certainly know he wouldn’t be a Republican — and damn sure wouldn’t be someone who supported a vile, detestable person like Donald Trump.

During the GOP primary, Republicans had actual evangelical candidates from which to choose. Heck, they had a bona fide former minister in Mike Huckabee and the son of a preacher in Ted Cruz. I can’t stand either individual, but at least their ties to their warped views of Christianity are based upon an actual belief in that perversion of the faith.

Donald Trump is a complete farce. He’s someone who calls himself a Christian because he knows millions other fake “conservative Christians” were gullible enough to actually believe him. Then again, when you’re as hypocritical as these people, in many ways, Trump is the perfect “Christian” — if you’re someone who subscribes to the delusional version of “Christianity” many conservatives claim they worship.

So, I guess, in many ways Trump is the perfect politician for these “Christians in name only” who’ve somehow convinced themselves that the best way to worship a religious figure like Jesus Christ is by supporting someone who’s essentially the living embodiment of values that are the exact opposite of those for which he lived and died.

No matter what anyone thinks about the true faith of Christianity, there’s one thing that’s undeniable — you can’t call yourself a follower of Christianity and believer in the values for which Jesus Christ lived, and support Donald Trump.

So, you’re more than welcome to support him. But whatever religion you claim to worship damn sure isn’t real Christianity. There’s nothing about the bottom-feeding, racist-pandering Donald Trump that represents real Christian values.

With their embrace of Donald Trump, Republicans cemented the fact that when it comes to Christianity, they’re nothing but absolute frauds.

    What republicans are most interested in is supporting oil wars in the Middle East and subjugating women in the cruel medieval type of so called Christianity (denying women education and all forms of birth control and leadership positions) which is just as cruel and repressive as Saudi Arabia Islamic repression of women.

    Just because subjugated Christian and Jewish women married to Republican DICTATOR style men do not cover their faces with a Veil like SAUDI ARABIAN women do, they are still just as much repressed by republican style CHRISTO-FASCIST laws by being SLAMMED OUT of being allowed to have either birth control pills, SLAMMED OUT of LEGAL Medicaly safe abortion, SLAMMED OUT of higher education which could lead to independence and a career of her own and SLAMMED back to the days when women were BLAMED if they were victims of rape or abuse from their husbands!

    When people voice opposition to the cruel medieval CHRISTO-FASCISM the republican THUGS try to force on people, especially women who do NOT wish to belong to Fundamentalist Churches and believe in SCIENCE EDUCATION instead of CREATIONIST BULLSHIT and believe in all forms of BIRTH CONTROL and Legal safe medical abortion the “Christian” Fascist Republicans SCREAM that they are PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS!

    The CHRISTO-FASCIST Republicans are the ones who are PERSECUTING and CRUCIFYING the REST OF US!

      Oh please. If you think abortion is birth control and employers owe yoy anything other than a paycheck, you’re nothing but another delusional Bolshevik wannabe. I love that you included Jews, Schlomo Shekelstein.

      • Carolyn Webb

        I am not asking employers to
        Pay for abortions I am just asking religious fanatics like YOU to stop slamming your anti abortion laws on women who do NOT wish to belong to fundamentalist religious groups that oppose abortion. Women who do NOT belong to fundamentalist religious anti abortion groups should not be forced to live by fundamentalist religious laws! Tyrants like YOU have NO RIGHT to force your religious laws on people who do not want to be
        Members of YOUR religion! Forcing your religion on other people is what I object to and I never said employers had to pay for abortions. The women pay for it themselves out of their pay checks WITHOUT asking their employers for extra money for abortions or anything

        And besides I AM NOT JEWISH you stupid FUCK HEAD!

        The fact that I do not like your CHRISTO-FASCIST medieval religion that forces women who have an I unaffordable pregnancy as well as the kind of pregnancy that is endangering her life or the kind of pregnancy my that will result in a child born with severe handicaps that mean a short life full of suffering does not make me JEWISH or any other religion for that matter.

        I also notice that tyrants like YOU love to demonized a woman who ends a pregnancy

        But you same dick heads who claim to be PRO LIFE just love to see homicidal people with past histories of violent crimes get their hands on GUNS so they can brutally murder innocent little school children and other innocent people who are ALREADY HERE IN THE WORLD living outside their mother’s womb!

        You do not give a damn about the rights of innocent people, EVEN LITTLE CHILDREN NOT to be killed by your PRECIOUS GUNS!

        You are NOT pro life DICK HEAD! You are just PRO FETUS, PRO GUN and you LOVE to see innocent blood spilled with your guns and bullets!

        And you love to see American jobs shipped overseas and AMERICAN workers slammed into HOMELESSNESS, yes you are a typical RE-PIG-LICAN FASCIST!

    Rhetoric. Pure rhetoric derived from more rhetoric and in turn coming from nonsense. We’ve heard all this before. Even Sanders isn’t this weak. Try harder regressives.

      The last thing we need is you egging the GOP on.
