Most importantly it clearly shows how the GOP is overwhelmingly the evangelical party, even with a guy like Trump running things. The party is all about banning abortion attacking LGBT rights and “religious freedom” nowadays, along with tax cuts for the rich people really running things.

Paul Hardesty didn’t pay much attention to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., last month until a third concerned constituent rang his cell phone.

 

The residents of Hardesty’s district — he’s a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator — were calling to complain that Trump was “using the Lord’s name in vain,” as Hardesty recounted.

 

“The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught,” said Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat.

 

Here’s what he would have seen. Trump crowing, “they'll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor.”

 

“We all wish he would be a little more careful with his language, but it’s not anything that’s a deal breaker and it’s not something we’re going to get morally indignant about,” said Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., one of Trump’s earliest religious supporters.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, that Trump can say or do that evangelicals won't defend.

It’s almost as if Trump isn’t actually a believer...

What gave it away? Was it the two Corinthians that were hanging out with him and engaging in locker room talk?

It’s what Jesus would have wanted.
