Now that a significant portion of the Republican establishment are withdrawing their support from Donald Trump because of the ‘lewd comments video,’ religious leaders have a dilemma.
How should they respond, especially since this is an objection of a moral nature?
A few have thrown mud at him, and it reflected in a temporary drop in the polls, but other responses were even more surprising.
The good news is, some outspoken Christian leaders are not pulling their support from Trump and are issuing statements to that effect. One such leader is Dr. James Dobson, founder of ‘Focus on the Family’ and ‘Family Talk Radio.’
In his statement reported on WND, Dr. Dobson affirmed:
“I do not condone nor defend Donald Trump’s terrible comments made 11 years ago. They are indefensible and awful. I’m sure there are other misdeeds in his past, although as Jesus said, ‘Let him who is without sin cast the first stone,’ he said, according to WND.
“I am, however, more concerned about America’s future than Donald Trump’s past. I wonder about how Bill Clinton’s language stands up in private.”
“My condemnation of the former president is on an entirely different level,” Dobson said. “To my knowledge, Donald Trump has never abused women physically or had oral sex in the Oval Office with a vulnerable intern. Nor has he committed perjury by lying to Congress for many hours.“Trump hasn’t been impeached by Congress for his lies. Donald Trump hasn’t vetoed bills that would have outlawed the procedure known as partial-birth abortion. Bill Clinton alone is responsible for the brains being sucked out of unanesthetized babies during delivery. That naziesque procedure continued for years until the Supreme Court declared it illegal. Donald Trump is pro-life.
“Clinton and his wife disrespect the Constitution of the United States, although Trump has promised to protect it, especially the First Amendment. Shall I go on?
“I am supporting Mr. Trump primarily because I believe he is the most capable candidate to lead the United States of America in this complicated hour,” Dobson concluded.
It is a very positive thing that Dr. Dobson can look past the inconsequential remarks made by Donald Trump and see the real character of a man who truly wants America to become great again.
After almost eight years of listening to Barack Obama’s words of self aggrandizement and empty rhetoric, it’s refreshing to see someone like Trump come along who shares our real political values!
We hope more voters will recognize that fact!
