14. This needs to be exposed.

There are people out there doing this. Democrats need to find a way to neutralize this group as a voting constituency for Trump. It may come down to just putting out enough of this kind of information to keep a lot of them home on election day, or discourage them into voting third party. Frankly, I believe an argument could be made to convince them to vote Democratic, though their lock-in to single issue politics, on abortion rights and LGBTQ rights is an obstacle.

There's an appalling, and I mean appalling, level of ignorance among members of conservative churches about doctrine and practice of Christian faith. And support for Republicans has become a doctrinal point of practice for many people. And there are people in some of these churches, especially if the pastor is a rabid, right-wing extremist who sees government as a way to impose religion on those who don't accept it by conscience, who are more than willing to ignore the Christian values which make gentleness and respect primary principles of practice. But there are enough who can be convinced not to contribute to the dismantling of American freedom just because some people who are free make decisions they don't like.
