Donald J. Trump is doing a “wholesale destruction of the Republican party.” According to Fox’s The Five, Dana Perino. While Donald J. Trump could be hitting Hillary Clinton from all directions he is ignoring her, hitting Republicans, and the current President. We see Trump whining about a mother and father of fallen Star hero of the military for their disagreement with him concerning his idea to stop all immigration by Muslims, and he complains that there is some type of rigged system put in place for the Presidential Debates.
Of course, #trumpleweeds like Judge Janine, Sean Hannity, and Eric Bolling insists that this was the most brilliant thing that Trump has ever done since the last most brilliant thing that Trump has ever done. When confronted with the terrible polling, they blissfully march on, confident that Trump will smite all his enemies.
Each election inevitably ends up with a conversation about the “lesser of two evils” and, due to America’s two-party system, a conversation about how not voting for a certain candidate is, in fact, a vote for another more evil candidate. While that logic seems reasonable and has merit in some cases, there reaches a point where the argument breaks under the weight of the fact that some things are simply wrong.
But while this battle goes on, the Christians and Constitutionalists are looking for a savior. This savior they pray comes from the Conservative party, but where is the Conservative party?
11But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. (1 Corinthians 5:11 ESV)
2And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you…5you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord. (1 Corinthians 5:2, 5 ESV)
18If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. (Ezekiel 3:18 ESV)
16Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. 17They say continually to those who despise the word of the Lord, ‘It shall be well with you’; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.’ ” (Jeremiah 23:16–17 ESV)
Trump has repeatedly made disparaging, and racist remarks towards minorities. His narrative on illegal immigration is replete with race baiting as he identifies Hispanic immigrants predominantly as a rapist, criminals, and killers. His posture towards other racial minorities is equally disturbing. His election rhetoric has been concerning enough, but his business history seems to reveal years of outright prejudice against African-Americans. The white ranks of the evangelical church have traditionally shied away from racial issues, but as long as the church cannot find its voice on justice issues we are revealing the shallowness of our gospel. Abortion and marriage are critical issues, but these other issues are serious as well and the Bible repeatedly addresses social issues. This is an area where the white evangelical church is behind the times, and now is the time to begin to recover ground lost on this issue. It is a gospel issue.
Trump has openly bragged about his adulterous affairs and sexual conquests. No other Presidential candidate has ever been such a bold proponent of adultery. He has been so base as to suggest that his daughter is fit to pose for Playboy and that if he was not her father he would be dating her. He recently described sexual desire towards his daughter, and he’s even asked others if they thought she was “hot.” When his second daughter was a year old, he was already making comments about her body. His overall attitude towards women is highly sexual, misogynistic, and deplorable. He openly evaluates women according to their bodies and has repeated expressed willingness to sleep with other women including married women. When asked if he would leave his current wife if she were involved in an accident, Trump’s response was that it depended on what happened to her breasts? Trump may have promoted a few women in his business, but he did that because he thought men were better, but a good woman would work harder than a man. Employees have recounted how he wanted the most attractive women in the business to surrounding him and even told one of his highest ranking female employees that “she liked her candy” when she gained some weight.
He has mocked the disabled. He ridiculed a disabled veteran because he was captured and Trump likes those “who aren’t captured.” At the same time, Trump managed to avoid being drafted for military service and has boasted that, due to his promiscuity, avoiding STD’s was his own “personal Vietnam.” His attitude towards human rights is deplorable and he openly admits to supporting torture and other inhumane acts. This is just the tip of the iceberg. A simple look at Trump’s media reveals a disdain for both decency and virtually everything Christians would call biblical values. A simple look at Trump’s campaign and his public life over the last few decades makes it readily apparent that he is bold in his sin. By simply looking at how the Bible describes a foolish leader, we can easily see that Trump is the embodiment of nearly every description the Bible gives of a foolish leader. Trump’s campaign, which reflects the philosophy of his books, has been filled with arrogance, intimidation, threatening, name-calling, and bullying. Trump is a proponent of deception in his books.
So Donald will not support McCain, which I may not, but for many different reasons than Donald’s, nor will he support Paul Ryan, using a fool hearted response, mocking Paul, nor has he joined the train for Senator Kelly Ayotte from New Hampshire. This is all signs of trying to destroy the RNC from the inside out. Trump is a much better pundit and candidate for Hillary Clinton than for the Republican Party, Conservatism, and the Constitution.
Now comes the case of Trump University, where the judge has determined Late Tuesday afternoon, Federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel denied Donald Trump’s motion for summary judgment in the Trump University case, finding instead that there is enough evidence to move forward with the case. The class action lawsuit alleges that Trump University defrauded students out of thousands of dollars. “The Court agrees with Plaintiff that the evidence in the record raises a genuine issue of material fact as to whether Defendant (Trump) participated in the operation or management of the enterprise,” Judge Curiel wrote in his order in response to Trump’s motion for summary judgment.Judge
So in the end, as Donald spends his days judging all politicians and nay Sayers of their inabilities, and shortcomings, he has the most of the shortcomings, and needs to stop judging, and become another has been choker and loser. He is truly not a leader for the Constitutionalists, not for the Conservatives, and not for true Christians. It is time to judge Trump for his life, his business dealings, his words of hate and spite, and to remove his name from the annals of the Conservative party.
