We stand with you Mr. Trump

Some Donald Trump Supporters Are Defending His Lewd Comments Because He’s a Sinner Who’s Now Saved

When the Republican presidential nominee boasts about grabbing women “by the pussy” and thrusting himself upon them without invitation, what do you do when you’re a conservative Christian who has a lot riding on his victory?

The right answer is to admit your candidate is awful, tell the world that you could never vote for him, and reflect on how people like you may have contributed to his rise.

The wrong answer is to pretend like Donald Trump wasn’t a real Christian when all of this happened in 2005… or to toss out some other faith-based platitude excusing his disgusting behavior.

2. Top Evangelicals Stand By Trump After Crude Video Revelation

“People of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defund Planned Parenthood, defend religious liberty and oppose the Iran nuclear deal,” Ralph Reed, the leader of the Faith and Freedom Coalition told the Daily Beast. “A ten-year-old tape of a private conversation with a talk show host ranks low on their hierarchy of concerns.”

Tony Perkins, another prominent evangelical leader and president of the Family Research Council told Buzzfeed that his support of Trump never was about Trump's morality.

“My personal support for Donald Trump has never been based upon shared values, it is based upon shared concerns about issues such as: justices on the Supreme Court that ignore the constitution, America’s continued vulnerability to Islamic terrorists and the systematic attack on religious liberty that we’ve seen in the last 7 1/2 years,” Perkins told Buzzfeed in an e-mail.
