In response to Pope Francis’ attack, Donald Trump replied
For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President.
which is ironic considering Trump himself supports attacking and weakening Christianity in the interests of his own sodomitical ideology. Laura Wood finds
DONALD Trump, who once attended a same-sex “marriage” and called it “beautiful,” is relatively good for the LGBT cause. He personally supports free marriage and he has been a vocal supporter of “gay rights.” According to Jonathan Jacob Allen:
Trump has advocated for banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. He criticized a Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses after the U.S. Supreme Court found, earlier this year, that the Constitution protects the right of same-sex couples to marry. He is also one of only two Republican candidates — along with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie — that the Human Rights Campaign deems to have even a “mixed” record on gay rights.
“He is one of the best, if not the best, pro-gay Republican candidates to ever run for the presidency,” said Gregory T. Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans, an advocacy group for LGBT Republicans. Trump would do no harm on same-sex marriage, Angelo said, and has a “stand-out position” on non-discrimination legislation.
I don’t need to remind readers of the zero-sum game here: workplace discrimination ban means protection from hostile work environment means employers must fire anyone found to disagree with the gay rights agenda means Donald Trump wants the ruin of every faithful American Christian.
This “boo-hoo-hoo, don’t question my faith” routine is pathetic. The man has made public his repudiation of the Christian faith and his intention to do its followers legal harm. He is not a Christian. He’s not even a virtuous pagan.
It is frightening indeed that the Republican frontrunner should be unambiguously siding with the enemy on the most important issue of our time. It is a sign that we will soon have two openly anti-Christian parties. Some might say that this is better than having one openly anti-Christian party and one covertly anti-Christian one, but I don’t agree. The Republican Party’s hypocritical defense of the faith has provided some real protection to the extent that it has made the Democrats cautious.
