One Christian's perspective on President Trump
Mar 13th, 2018 at 5:11pm
Print Post  
From the Christian Post:

Quote:
If the presidential elections were held today and Donald Trump was running against Hillary Clinton, I would vote for Donald Trump without hesitation. But that doesn't mean that he doesn't embarrass me at times. And when it comes to his recent attack on NBC's Chuck Todd, I side with Todd. That's not because I agree with Todd's ideology or that I feel his reporting is fair and balanced.

To be perfectly candid, I don't see much of Todd's reporting and so I can't really comment either way.

But what I do know is that the president of the United States debases himself by getting into juvenile, even profane name-calling. And while he may rally certain elements of his base with this kind of rhetoric, he alienates another part of his base. He also further inflames his adversaries and gives fresh fuel to his detractors. And to what purpose? To what gain?

*Snip*

Without a doubt, having Donald Trump as our president has its big plusses and big minuses.

Of course, ardent Trump supporters will lambaste me, accusing me of prudery, of focusing on inconsequential details, of being a secret leftist at heart.

"Just look at what he's done for the economy, for Israel, for the courts, for our religious rights. And he's about to meet with the President of North Korea in what could be one of the greatest diplomatic breakthroughs of our era. Plus, he's virtually destroyed ISIS."

Again, that's why I would vote for him today against the likes of Hillary Clinton.

But the fact is that President Trump could have accomplished these same goals without degrading himself, without debasing the office of the president, without attacking others with crudeness and vulgarity, and without further dividing an already-divided nation. Can anyone tell me how his cruelty helps his cause?

My appeal is that our president step higher, that he be aggressive and bold without acting like a child, that he be fearless without being frivolous. Only the blindly loyal will defend him at every turn, just as those blindly loyal to President Obama could see no wrong in him.

I think this is the perfect perspective when it comes to assessing Trump. We should appreciate a lot of his policies and actions (well, the ones that we agree with). We should realize that we escaped the horrors of a Hillary Clinton administration. But we don't have to make excuses for some of his behavior.

As Josie said in another thread, no one is perfect. We are all sinners. We need to recognize that. At the same time, however, we should never blindly follow a leader and abdicate him of any wrongdoings.

So the takeaway from the OP is .. If you're a Christian, it's Okay to abandon your principles as long as your hypocrisy forwards an agenda..

Didn't we already know that?

Yes, we knew that, but it's good to be reminded of conservative religious hypocrisy from time to time.

I don’t know how you came up with that conclusion. Did you read the article?
