Church leaders and Donald Trump
Odd that religious leaders are strangely silent about the hate and violence that Donald Trump spews. I mean, you'd think these Christians would be front and center denouncing this insane man.

Aw, what am I thinking! Facepalm This is religion were talking about. Of course they're not going to condemn Donald Trump. Of course they're going to look the other way, besides he'd fit perfectly in the Old Testament. Silly, silly me, expecting morality from religion. Dodgy

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The Pope has actually condemned Trump as un-Christian for his xenophobic campaign platform.

Why are you asking religious persons to denounce Trump? Do you feel more comfortable when religious people take point in the political process? I haven't seen any Christians complaining about atheists not denouncing Trump.

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

They are waiting to see which way the wind is blowing first.

Good point. Now, if only I believed TTA'ers who say they have morals yet no absolutes! Because what is implied is their morals may change on a whim. And that's as disturbing as anything, if not more so, than Donald J. says!

Two things:
  • Christianity is a very fractured group, and you can't really glean any one Christian's views on morality from simply looking at the label "Christian". I imagine the vast majority of Trump's followers are Christian.
  • A lot of Christians are speaking out against Trump, but the leaders of any given church have to be careful what they say. If a church gets too involved in politics, it risks losing its tax-exempt status.
