In case you haven’t been paying attention, yesterday we learned that Trump said some comments in 2005 about hitting on married women and how women let him do anything because he’s a celebrity. He basically laughed about sexual assault. Even his running mate Pence is distancing himself from him, and the GOP is in disarray.
Of course, I wonder what took so long: Trump’s been saying crap like this for ages–not just from 11 years ago, but in the past week/month/year–but only now does it seem to be the “last straw” for the GOP.
It’s too late now to change things. Early voting has already started.
Trump is an obvious narcissistic sociopath. Those of us who have been abused by such people in one way or another, recognize this easily. Nothing about him screams “Christian,” either, so this stubborn determination by Evangelical leaders to support him as a so-called “repentant Christian,” just boggles my mind.
TRUMP IS NOT A CHRISTIAN!
This is what we call “Christian in name-only.” Or “nominal Christian.” Someone who only calls himself a Christian to get benefits from that.
Also, his “apology” strikes me as very much NOT an apology. His wife’s comments that she accepted the apology–I suspect that she is so engulfed in Stockholm Syndrome that she doesn’t see the truth about his “apology” or his character.
Let’s stop fooling ourselves that voting Republican no matter what is the “Christian” way, while Democrats are the “anti-Christian” party.
I am well-versed in the Bible and Christian ethics, and this is WHY I abandoned the GOP many years ago now. The Democrats have some issues as well, but I determined the platform actually follows the teachings of Christ. You can’t just automatically dismiss a whole party as the “Antichrist” unless it actually calls itself the Antichrist Party. (Or it’s Neo-Nazi. 😛 )
As for individual Democrats–they’re people, too. Individual Republicans are people, too. Even though I heartily disagree with Paul Ryan’s politics, for example, I’d feel a LOT better if he were on the ticket instead of Trump. Even Pence gives me far less of a squicky feeling than Trump. Even Cruz–well, no, not Cruz. 😛 Ben Carson–I’d be okay with him instead of Trump. BUT NOT TRUMP!
