Hypocrisy. It's what's for dinner.

So he's a pastor who believes in Christianity because someone told him to ? I don't really claim to get evangelicals, or republicans half the time. But how does he square his purported views about justice with voting to put a felon back in the White House ? Is it the indicted vs unindicted parsing ?

I agree mostly, but it's also hypocritical for Christians to support Hillary. A third party is the only potentially conscionable choice.

We read the Scriptures and found Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Creator, commanding his followers to care for the poor, to love others as we love ourselves.

From which he made old the leap of logic that Jesus meant the government should care for the poor with taxpayers' money, as opposed to the Church caring for the poor themselves as was actually commanded.

(Note: I'm not trying to say that there should be no welfare programs or that Jesus would necessarily disapprove of them, just that people who claim Jesus advocated for them are being dishonest.)

So. . . what I get from this is a guy believes in a particular God and that Trump might win scares him. It took a 3000 words to say that?

And then to title the thread with hypocrisy? LOL

The left has been clearly shown time after time after time the Clintons are the epitome of corruption, yet ignore it because they want either free stuff or think those that have worked hard for their assets need to share more.

Ahh, I didn't make the connection between theology classes and making ice cream, lol Survival dictates most of us align our educational pursuits with our chosen career paths.
