I have often discussed the confusion that the left seems to have about religion. In the past, there were several articles that questioned why evangelical Christians support President Trump. I even wrote an article in the past about the apparent war on Christians that the left has started.
Last week, an article at CNN took a new look at this and went a step further. The article suggests that faith could bring us together, but that it divides us instead. All throughout the article, the author ties religion to racism. Christianity is viewed in light of major political issues and causes.
The author continues going after the religious right tying the growth of the group to President Reagan and his rise. There are some common names used in the article, such as Rev. Billy Graham and Rev. Jerry Falwell. The author ties their names to battles over abortion and homosexual marriage.
The end of the article discusses President Trump and Christian support of him. The author suggests that the support of Trump is about political power, not simply Christian perspective and rights. This continues to show that the left has no clue why Christians support President Trump.
As a Christian, I do not support President Trump for his alleged affairs or horrific statements about grabbing females. In reality, I don’t agree with everything President Trump does or says. However, I do agree with his support of freedom of religion and protection for Christian rights.
The left may not understand the support of Christians of President Trump, yet they must look at the alternatives they offer. If I take into consideration the top 4 candidates for President, it’s easy to see why I cannot support them. There are multiple reasons each candidate goes against my Christian values and ideals.
Perhaps, it goes further than just my Christian faith. I know it seems drastic to think that someone believes in small government and hard work, but I do. Most conservatives do not agree with providing free things to everyone. I am an avid supporter of the American dream. Conservatives do not support pandering to all the special interest groups. We believe in freedom, but not the kind of freedom where there are no rules.
Yes, a lot of the liberal platform goes against my Christian faith, but that is not the only reason I do not agree. The left wants to treat Christians as if they are the problem with this country. That is simply not the case. The issues is not the fact that I am religious or that there are others religious in our country.
My religious beliefs go above any political stance I have. That is who I am as a person. I didn’t vote for President Trump because I felt he was a devout Christian. I didn’t vote for him because I felt he was a religious scholar. President Trump received my vote because I believed he would protect my country and my rights. That is something I cannot trust any of these Democratic candidates to do.
