Racist Trump's support among conservatives proves that right-wing "faith" is simply a marketing tool

Racist Trump's distant lead in the polls and his strong support among conservatives proves that right-wing "faith" is simply a marketing tool.
vkkv, Jan 27th 2016.

Trump's "yuge!" lead in the polls is a reflection of modern Republican values: hate, fear, white supremacy and money-first. Trump's endorsement by evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr proves that hate, fear and racism all trump faith and God and everything good and fetuses and the poor.

If so-called "religious conservatives" were truly a political force then 'pro-choice' Trump would be trailing Cruz, Rubio, Huck and Fiorina. But religious conservatives are NOT a force, in fact polls indicate that the values of hate, fear and racism far OUT-WEIGH the 'religious' values of tolerance, peace, acceptance, sharing, quiet dignity as valued by actual spiritual people.

The fact that polls reflect that so few supposed anti-choice religious nut-cases find Trump "unacceptable" (see second article excerpt) clearly proves what a slim minority of Republicans actually care about unborn fetuses. Christian faith is now taking a distant back seat to Hate, Fear and Racism among Republican voters.

That's my take and I'm sticking to it!

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is viewed as the least religious presidential candidate, edging out Democratic contenders Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders as having the lowest perceived faith devotion, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center.

Trump has certainly had some notable slip-ups while discussing and addressing religion on the campaign trail, but that hasn’t stopped him from defying the odds by successfully courting many religious Americans; this research only adds to the intrigue surrounding that dynamic.

One of the conundrums that has astounded political observers is Trump’s strong standing among evangelicals, as he has attracted support from people like Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, and even received an endorsement this week from Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., among others.

From: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/01/27/pro-life-leaders-send-urgent-request-to-iowa-caucusgoers-about-donald-trump/

A coalition of pro-life leaders are urging Iowans to support “anyone but Trump” in the upcoming caucus.

The female pro-life leaders of both Iowa-based and national pro-life organizations sent a letter to Iowans Tuesday to tell them that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is an “unacceptable” option for president due to his ambivalence about their cause and comments he has made that “impugned the dignity of women.”

Trump has recently faced scrutiny from pro-life activists for his claim that he no longer supports abortion.

During a 1999 interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump called himself “pro-choice in every respect” and said that a President Trump would not work to implement a ban on partial-birth abortion.

Who would pick the BEST Supreme Court Justices? Bernie Or Hill ?

Come on now, be honest!
