Trump’s the Devil

John W. Pinkerton


Being that the left just can't let Trump quietly go about his business playing golf and telling folks that he used to be President and because the lefties apparently consider Trump and “Trumpism” to be a lifetime engagement, I decided to publish an essay I wrote during the presidential campaign but never published

I've seen posts that ask the question, “How can Christians support Trump?” the implication being that he is not a Christian man, that he is an immoral man, and if one supports Trump, one is not a Christian and therefore is also immoral.

Come down off your high horse for a moment, and I'll explain it to you.

Traditionally we've preferred  our presidents to be Christians.  This gives most of us something in common with the leader of the free world.

Now, there are many types of  Christians.   As a matter of fact, some Christians don't consider other Christians Christians.

I suppose because conservatives seem to mention God in a favorable way more often than liberals, I guess the Dems are thinking the Republicans are defending the “Godless” Trump and leaving themselves open to the accusation of hypocrisy.

By the way, I've never had the power to look into another man's heart and soul to discern their true being.  I can't do that with Trump either…and neither can you.

That aside, I don't care whether Trump  is a Christian or not.  Heck, I suspected that Obama was an Islamist, and I could have cared less.  Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with an atheist or agnostic president.

Trump is not my father, nor my priest, nor someone with whom I have a personal relation.  I wish him well as I do most folks, but that's about it.

His actions say that he supports Christianity even if he personally is totally indifferent to Christianity. 

He is very supportive of our nation’s military defense.   Does it matter that he may not give a crap about the soldiers?  He has supplied the funds to make them the strongest military force on earth.  What more could I want?

He says that he's against abortion and he supports defunding Planned Parenthood.  He may be lying through his teeth when he says he is pro life, but if he supports actions and policies in their favor, I support him.

One position that no one questions is his sincerity of his position regarding illegal aliens.  He's against them and so am I. 

Frankly I could care less whether or not he prays for these positions each night or not as long as his actions reflect positions with which I agree.

This ain't brain surgery, Bubba.
