Evangelicals aren't turned off by Trump's first term -- they're delighted by it

Three years ago, Rickey Halbert was torn about whether to vote for Donald Trump.

On the one hand, heíd read about Trumpís extramarital affairs and the women who alleged he had sexually assaulted them. Halbert, a Defense Department employee, didnít think the candidate matched his moral compass.

Then again, he believed Trump would reduce the number of abortions in the country.

In the end, he said, that convinced him to vote for Trump, like most of his fellow evangelicals.

1. Evil Jellicles will burn in Hell.

Well, a societal Hell of ostracism and shame. Trump is hurting his despicable base more than anybody, and they deserve it.

6. From what I've seen so far, there's a better chance of the fabled hell than there is of

the ostracism and shame.

Americans don't give a shit about much of anything except themselves, their "god", and their guns.

9. The Despicables are all about guns, gays, god, and white male supremacy.

But they are a minority. Don't lump in the decent majority with those idiots. You hurt your soul that way.

10. It always goes back to abortion.

And yet the bible does not mention it anywhere.

And as far as "Thou shall not kill", the original Hebrew states it as "Thou shall not murder".
