Take it to the Trump Bashing Thread
I do not want this thread to become a political thread which just means a Trump-bashing fest. I'm sorry I posted anything at all about Trump. Forgive me but I'm too aware of the Leftist agenda against him to take anything anyone here says seriously. Sorry. You may be right about some of it, probably are, but I do not care because I know there is a sick agenda behind most of it and I don't want the job of trying to sort it out. Take it to the Trump Presidency Bashing thread.

the Trump support base.

The really sad thing is that is an accurate analysis of his support base.

Yeh, that's why we should spend whatever it costs to educate people and be very careful what questions we ask them.

Red Letter vs Old Testament precepts
also, keep in mind that OT populations had no "saved" people whereas NT Christians are...which shifts awareness of responsibility in regards to electing a good government...precisely what the red letter bunch claims.

You don't have to do any sorting. It's already been done.

Take it to the Trump Presidency Bashing thread.

This thread is about Red Letter Christians criticizing Trump. It is going to be difficult to declare Trump criticism off topic here, because those criticisms often serve as examples of Trump doing things that no evangelical ought to support, but which they surely do. Your wish won't be granted.

Kudos on not falling into the same category by finding this particular instance unacceptable.
