Roy Moore: God Put Donald Trump in the White House! Bullcrap!
"Seated beneath the Ten Commandments plaque that first made him a conservative icon in the culture wars, U.S. Senate candidate and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore invokes President Donald Trump`s campaign slogan -- but with his own twist.
`I support President Trump`s agenda of making America great again. But I submit to you that we can only make America great again if we make America good," Moore said in his downtown Montgomery office a day after announcing his bid for the Senate seat previously held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Moore`s campaign theme puts a values-driven spin on the president`s populist slogan, `Make America Great Again,` and Moore`s campaign announcement spelled out what he believes isn`t good: divorce, abortion and same-sex marriage."
I have friends and family members who are evangelicals, and they are diehard supporters of President Donald Trump -- the same Donald Trump who embodies the secular values and human vices that are antithetical to fundamentalist Christianity.
This dichotomy leads me to conclude that many evangelicals prize Republican values like small government, gun rights, and an unrestrained free market, more than they do their religious beliefs.
That`s why I`m not surprised that former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who makes a fetish out of family values, fervently supports the thrice-married serial pussy grabber.
Moore goes further than endorsing Trump, he stated that God Almighty Himself elevated him to his supreme position as Leader of the Free World. The obvious implication is that if we oppose Trump, we oppose God.
I oppose sanctimonious windbags like Roy Moore, and lying politicians like Trump who will say anything to pander to their base, and I doubt that God is going to smite me with a thunderbolt, although many Trump supporters wouldn`t hesitate to knock me out.
I oppose everything that Trump stands for, and that doesn`t make me an enemy of God, it means I oppose tyranny and corruption and value democracy and liberty.
