Would Christ approve of Trump's policies?
Exit polls showed 80 percent of conservative Christians voted for President Donald Trump. What is a conservative Christian? It was conservatives who crucified Christ for his liberal doctrine.
Conservative Christian Pilgrims murdered those they were certain were witches.
Christ told of the Good Samaritan, teaching us to look into someone's heart instead of at their ethnicity. Trump tells us to condemn Muslims and immigrants.
Christ said it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. Trump's wealth derives from well-publicized financial shenanigans, shafting his workers and his partners. His budget proposal cuts social services for the poor to pay for bigger tax cuts for the rich. Do they think their money will buy their way into heaven?
Christ healed the sick. Trump's budget proposal cuts the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including an 80 percent cut in funds to address worldwide infections. The Ebola and Zika viruses are only one plane ride away. The border wall won't keep out germs, and the flu kills many more Americans than immigrants do.
Christ is the Prince of Peace. Trump signed a bill relaxing restrictions on gun ownership by the mentally ill.
Christ said that as we do to the least among us, it's as if we do it to him. Would Christ approve of Trump's policies?
Conservative policies defy Christian belief
