Pro-Trump pastor: Stormy Daniels allegations 'totally irrelevant' to evangelical support for Trump

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by DonViejo (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: The Hill

A member of President Trump’s evangelical advisory board defended Trump over the controversy surrounding his alleged relationship with adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, saying the allegations were “totally irrelevant” to evangelicals who support Trump.

“Evangelicals know they’re not compromising their beliefs in order to support this great president,” Pastor Robert Jeffress said on Fox News Thursday. “And let’s be clear, evangelicals still believe in the commandment ‘thou shalt not have sex with a porn star.’”

“However, whether this president violated that commandment or not is totally irrelevant to our support of him,” he continued.

Jeffress said evangelicals knew they “weren’t voting for an altar boy” when they voted for Trump and maintained they supported Trump for his “policies and strong leadership.”

1. Yeah, they are really Christians.

Will be happy to tell them that. You know, like I was because I was raised Catholic.

Just a bunch of brainwashed liars.

3. These are Christians

That would have happily trotted off with the devil whilst in the desert. 'But his strong leadership is what's important, I mean, it's satan'

4. So 2 commandments that they no longer believe in

Thou shalt not commit adultery
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife

None of the others apply to these Christians as well. They are simply not to be trusted with your wife, your under aged daughter or your wallet

They are all perverts, thieves and liars

5. Power of THEIR Church over Party over Country over god

Not "under god"; god (Jesus) really does come last in the Dominionist / Evangelical pyramid of greed. Jeffress lays it all out:

Jeffress said evangelicals knew they “weren’t voting for an altar boy” when they voted for Trump and maintained they supported Trump for his “policies and strong leadership.”

17. Matthew 4:8-10

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

It appears they seem to have replaced verse 10 with:

Jesus said to him, "You have strong leadership and make policies I agree with."

7. Jeffress has demonstrated time and again that he is a piece of filth.

But let's give trump credit for knowing his moronic base, because it's just like he said: they would support him, even if he gunned down somebody in the street.

8. Their hypocrisy on everything has got to be exhausting

they have no shame at all. Frankly, I don't care what consenting adults do. But when they preach about family values while supporting an adulterer who brags about sexual assault, it is a problem.

Are their tax cuts really worth it? Middle class Trumpanzee have to notice it hasn't helped them much by now. At this point the evangelical support is probably more about keeping out immigrants or something other than moral values.

9. they are (with their hypocrisy) doing more to turn the millenials against religion than anything

that could be devised.

Keep it up a'holes. (With some considerable sympathy for the progressive "real" Christians out there).

11. Did they realize they were voting for the "Anti-Christ"

Much has been written about the seduction of the devout by an Anti-Christ. They are always the last to know.

The consensus of Forum Hosts agrees this is not important news of national interest. Jeffress' position on an "evangelical advisory board" of Trump's makes it slightly notable, but not enough for LBN. Please post this in the General Discussions Forum and/or the Religion Group
