Trump has broken God's Commandment Number 6 : "Thou shalt not commit adultery", AT LEAST 3 TIMES

It’s no problem to be married more than, well, twice

Let’s be clear here. We’re not talking about polygamy (sorry, Mitt), only serial marriages. This revision has been a long time in the making. Yes, Jesus said: “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.”

Through the 1970s, we evangelicals ostracized anyone who was divorced, let alone divorced and remarried. But then we decided to ditch a family man (and fellow evangelical) in favor of a divorced and remarried Hollywood actor in 1980. Once that barrier was breached, we concluded that, hey, if two marriages are okay, why not three?

The first and last command of that god is everything else is a means to an end for more of it.

Political Christians rather than Christians of faith.

They support Trump who says he is so perfect that he does not need Christ or his forgiveness.

Like today's evangelical/religious right supporters, Trump is a Political Christian, not a Christian of faith.

Evangelicals/religious right are easily able to spin their beliefs for political expediency.

The Donald who does not have to ask Jesus for forgiveness.

The Donald who ridicules Holy Communion.

Don't you know that abortion is the ONLY sin God cares about?

As it is sacred scripture from Jesus himself. How a "Sola scriptura" cult can manage to twist this is beyond me.

Ten Commandments list

You shall have no other gods before Me.

You shall make no idols.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

Keep the Sabbath day holy.

Honor your father and your mother.

You shall not murder.

You shall not commit adultery.

You shall not steal.

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

You shall not covet.

... for taking the Lord God's name in vain.

Other than that, I'm good.

I don't think they let you into the higher echelons of the Republican Party until you've violated all the Ten Commandments and raped a farm animal or child as well.

We know what a vile human being he is, the country knows what a vile human being he is -- but it doesn't matter. Nothing stops him. Just ask Billy Graham's little boy, the NEW Reverend Graham.

The party which self-identifies (when convenient) as the Platform of Family Values and God hold both to be mere political devices, roundly ignored when confrontation by a mirror.

Screaming like little children about Obama wearing a tan suit of using Dijon mustard gets old. They have to change their play-list every once in a while, so now they point to the inequities they whined about with Clinton to rationalize the current behavior of their Sacred Cow.
