10:21 PM - Wolves in the Church Against Trump
Trump has not only exposed corruption in the GOP and our election process but is also bringing to light some of the corruption in the church. Having a difference of opinion is one thing but the tactics and hypocrisy of some of Trump's evangelical opponents is revealing in itself.

The (Un)Christian Post Uses CNN tactics of lying about Trump
The headline below and first line is an outright lie as you can see as you read down the article. Furthermore you can hear Trump's own words of what he said here. Trump really hit the nail on the head when he said leaders are selling Christianity down the tubes. And so are many evangelical leaders. I wonder how many Christian leaders actually pray for Obama and Hillary Clinton? Would they have prayed for Hitler while he was gassing Jews? And I'm not talking about imprecatory prayers of death. When possible God expects prayer to be backed up by action, not sitting on one's butt waiting for an answer, which is essentially what Trump was saying.
Donald Trump Tells Evangelical Leaders to Disobey Bible: Don't Pray for All Political Leaders, That's Politically Correct
By Samuel Smith
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump instructed evangelical leaders on Tuesday to disobey the biblical command to pray for all political leaders because that would be politically correct.
Trump's Meeting With Evangelical Leaders Marks the End of the Christian Right
By Michael Farris
I attended the very first meeting of the Moral Majority held in Indianapolis in February of 1980. I was the Washington state director of the MM and have been a leader of the "Christian right" ever since.
Today an estimated 1,000 evangelical leaders are making a pilgrimage to Trump Tower to "listen" to Donald Trump. [They were there for Trump to listen to them first.]
The organizer of this meeting came to my office to tell me in person why I wasn't being invited. I had been too vocal in my anti-Trump views.
I appreciated his courtesy in coming to me and he agreed that the obvious implication of the meeting was to rally support for Trump.
While I don't question the motives of those who are trekking to the Tower, I strongly dissent from the wisdom of their chosen path.
This meeting marks the end of the Christian Right.
[Well, I say good riddance!. The Christian Right was nothing but a farce led by a bunch of neocon evangelicals promoting Christian dominionism. It won't work. It's time to be realistic and face the fact that Christians are no longer a majority in America if they ever were. We will never put a pastor in the White House and even if it were possible evangelicals would still be divided on what kind of pastor. It would be nice to have a solid pro-life candidate. But ever since a Republican dominated Supreme Court legalized baby killing in America in 1973 almost every GOP candidate has openly opposed it during campaigns. But did any of them ever lift a finger to actually do something about it? Reagan didn't. The Bush crime family didn't. Five of the seven SCOTUS justices approving baby killing were appointed by Republican Presidents! Why don't any of these so-called evangelical leaders ever mention that fact?]
