Conservative Pundit Demolishes Christians For Cheering ‘The Most Faithless President In History’
Conservative commentator Jennifer Rubin didn’t hold back in her criticism of the so-called Christians who turned out at the Value Voters Summit in Washington D.C. over the weekend to listen to a “faithless” Donald Trump among other conservative speakers.
In a blistering editorial in the Washington Post, Rubin accused Christian attendees of “selling their souls” to support a “thrice-married, frequently accused misogynist who evidences not a single Christian virtue (e.g. humility, honesty, empathy, kindness, generosity).”
While conceding that Trump has delivered some red meat for social conservatives, “… in the form of a Supreme Court justice appointment of their liking, a broad order to ban transgender people from the military and sweeping permission for employers to deny birth control as part of the health-care coverage they provide,” the outspoken conservative called out their hypocrisy.
She highlighted the widely shared report that Trump mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian background, asking visitors who met with the VP if Pence “makes them pray.”
“Mocking prayer? Denigrating the effort to overturn Roe v. Wade?” Rubin asked. “They’d be horrified if a Democrat came close to that sort of conduct. Does Trump believe these things, or is he merely willing to humiliate a devout Christian for his faith?”
And she wasn’t done:
“Trump knows that without the religious right, he’s politically dead,” Rubin continued. “There is little likelihood that he will cross them on a policy issue of any importance. Like the National Rifle Association, the religious right made a pact with someone who never evidenced any concern for their issues. So far, the gamble has paid off for both. Trump and Republicans remain the NRA’s poodles; Trump delights in fighting the culture wars.”
“Christian conservatives should give up the ruse — they’ve made a bargain with the most irreligious and faithless president in history, a man who holds what they value in contempt,” she lectured. “Their scam — that they and their candidates operate from some high, moral plane and are the true repositories of American values — should end with this president.”
“They are nothing more and nothing less than an anti-abortion, anti-gay lobby group that seeks to enlist government to impose their ideological positions on others. In short, they are what their critics have always claimed,” she concluded.
