Religious Right Abandons Their Values To Support Trump
Poll after poll has shown the American people don't support the job Donald Trump is doing -- but that is different for those who claim to be religious. According to the Gallup Poll, 51% of the religious say Trump is doing a good job (although that figure is likely skewed by the large support for Trump by the fundamentalist right).
This amazes me. These are the people who claim to have a corner on moral values. And yet, they support a person who is a religious bigot, a racist, a misogynist, an admitted sex abuser, a serial adulterer, an admitted fraud (Trump U.), and an unadulterated liar. What happened to the values they claim to believe in? Haven't they abandoned the moral high ground by supporting Trump -- a man who represents the very antithesis of christian values?
All I can figure is that they like Trump's promise to put their own bigotry into law. These religious people, especially the fundamentalist right, seem to believe that their "right" to discriminate against their fellow citizens is more important than the values they claim to believe in. Do they even have any values -- other than bigotry and hate?
