    Why are Christians voting for Trump for president and not Hillary?

    Are you a Christian? Are you also voting for Trump? Why?

    I am a Christian and have been Since November 5, 1978.  I am not voting for Trump so far.  I don't see anything in his revealed plans or campaign rhetoric that is consistent with God's Word.  He arrogantly states that He can pull back catastrophes.  He shows no evidence of salvation and we don't want one to memorize all the right words.

      So your choice is Hillary Clinton, baby killer.

      Absolutely not!  There is no way I will vote for Hillary.  I do not hate her.  I disagree with her on Christian values.  I don't have a problem voting for either vice presidential nominee.  I will write in a presidential candidate.

    Many liberal denominations of Christianity and Judaism have mistakenly come to the conclusion that the commandment to do good in the world means leveraging the state (socialism) to do good. Then they ignore the culture of dependence welfare creates, the destruction of the family is pushes by penalizing marriage and rewarding out of wedlock births, and general harm caused by heavy regulation and bureaucracy intruding into every aspect of our lives. 
    (Telling nuns they have to pay for birth control, telling Christian schools that if they want any federal funds you have to teach X, telling Christian schools at all levels accommodate LBGTA or we'll sue and/or deny any funds).

    Jesus separated church and state, render undo Caesar what is Caesar's. Too many Democrats have readily leveraged religion to further their agenda - expansion of the state - though you notice they never respect boundaries of where the state should end and never answer the question "How far is enough?" To them, the state should be EVERYTHING, which is why religious people are morally obligated to push back on socialism, not expand the state, because the state sees the church and all other institutions as competitors for power and influence.

    Christians are voting for Donald Trump for president and not Hilary because they believe that Donald Trump is fighting for them. Most Christians are like sheep who are led to the slaughter. Donald Trump is the slaughter.
