It seems incredibly incongruous that anyone who calls him or herself a Christian could ever support or vote for Donald Trump. After all, this is a man who has said he’s never asked God for forgiveness, has been married three times, and was caught on tape bragging that he likes to grab women by their genitals. Not exactly the kind of person who exemplifies the teachings of Jesus.
Bill Maher, host of Real Time, has noticed this discrepancy, too, and on his show Friday evening he took evangelical Christians to task for their fervent embrace of the GOP nominee:
“I don’t know if you noticed but Republicans didn’t get to play the ‘Jesus card’ this time around. It’s hard to bring up the Ten Commandments when your candidate has spent most his life breaking all of them.
“Trump has nothing in common with Jesus. Jesus healed the blind, Trump mocks the handicapped. Jesus turned the other cheek, Trump grabs your pussy. Jesus turned water into wine, Trump just whines. The Bible says, ‘Thou shalt not covet they neighbor’s wife.’ Trump says, ‘Fine, what about my daughter?’”
Maher also noted that while Jesus saw the best in people, that’s a far cry from the way Trump chooses to mock others:
“He is the world’s least Godly man. Jesus saw the good in whores and lepers, but if he met Donald Trump he’d say ‘sorry man, but that’s a pre-existing condition.”
Finally, the host and comedian said considering that the GOP and evangelicals had dozens of candidates to choose from:
“They went for the foul-mouthed, pussy-grabber.”
I happen to be a Christian, and for that reason alone there is no way in hell I could ever vote for a person like Donald Trump. He is an insult to everything I believe, and he is not the person I want my daughter to see leading this country.
