A few days ago Donald Trump excitedly tweeted that he received an endorsement for President from Jerry Falwell Jr. Donald Trump is known for his arrogance, his greed, his moral failures, his pro-choice stance on abortion, and his desire to stop all Muslim immigration and build a wall between United States and Mexico. He is proud to be everything about the Republican Party that Conservative Christians hoped wasn’t true when we began to support them in the 1980s. Jerry Falwell Jr. is the heir to Jerry Falwell in more ways than one. Not only has he taken over from his father the largest and most influential Christian university (Liberty) in the country, he has taken over his father’s penchant for jumping in bed with the Republican Party. Yet this time, it’s different. What Christian values is Mr. Trump supporting? Is it our compassion for the poor and oppressed? Is it our defense of the unborn? Is he the voice of our “moral majority?” After more than 30 years of support, it is clear that Conservative Christians are being used for their vote.
The brutal fact is—we’ve been lied to.
The Republican Party is a married man that has flirted with us (Conservative Christians) for too long. We’ve been told that He want’s to marry us. We’ve been told that the relationship between his wife (big business) is on the rocks and he plans on marrying us. He’s taken us to his hotel, stolen our purity, and left us totally embarrassed when He “decided” that he would stay with his first wife. Even after all of this, we are still tagging along with him hoping that maybe, just maybe, he will change. He will never change and it looks like we are going to stay around to give him the one thing he wants.
