Post Reply If the US is a Christian nation, shouldn't it reject Trump?

Thomas Jefferson, January 1, 1802 Letter:

"I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."


Article Six of the United States Constitution:

"...no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."


I understand that devout Christians will be motivated in part by their religion when they go to vote, but I really don't think that should be their only motivation since the United States clearly isn't a theocracy. Anyway, wouldn't the abortion issue prevent a good number of them from supporting Hilary Clinton? Oh, but I guess they will conveniently forget that problem.

Also, why does Pope Francis feel the need to mess with the politics of countries?

^ he isn't an american citizen, he shouldn't be meddling in american politics. Also, the pope doesn't speak for all christians or conservatives in the us.

You know what Ben Shapiro said? I'll paraphrase, but "when did Christians ever vote for an adulterous strip club owner before?"

That's because "Christian nation" is a buzz word for some of the more theocratic and regressive evangelical types who live a lie that religious freedom is meant for them and has nothing to do with being a non-discrimination law to prevent sectarian and general dickery to other faiths and their own.

America isn't a Christian nation. It cannot be one. It is a secular nation by law.

To all those who claim Christ and try to justify voting for the Orange Chicken as the "lesser of two evils", as much of his Chicken Cult try to do:

Please tell me and CITE THE SCRIPTURE where Jesus said it was okay to settle for the "lesser of two evils". I have a feeling we'll be waiting for awhile or we'll be getting a lot of contortionists trying to bend the Scriptures out of context to justify voting for one poison over the other.

Also: to claim that America does not have a Judeo-Christian foundation in its laws and ethics is historically and factually ignorant and a lie set in place by modern secularists, as this ignores the entire historical and cultural fabric of the entirety of America's earliest European settlers and documents such as the Half-way Covenant.

Oh, and these little gems:

"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be." --Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.

"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian." --The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343

"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."
-- John Hancock, History of the United States of America, Vol. II, p. 229.

"I have carefully examined the evidences of the Christian religion, and if I was sitting as a juror upon its authenticity I would unhesitatingly give my verdict in its favor.

I can prove its truth as clearly as any proposition ever submitted to the mind of man."
-- Alexander Hamilton, Famous American Statesmen, p. 126

Sorry if the truth is inconvenient to them, but secularism and its interpretations of our laws are a very MODERN and recent phenomena; unless, of course, these argent scholars have time machines and somehow can read the minds of men long dead.

Between the two, do you want someone who tells it like it is and is upfront about the way he talks or someone who is constantly lying and changing her stance every time the wind blows?

Uh....When did being a Catholic Pope suddenly mean you're Christian as well?
