Whether you know it or not, you are claiming that Democrats are evil, antichristians, while Republicans are Godly - and THAT is nonsense.
Haven't you done the same with conservatives vs. liberals? You claim it's impossible to be a Christian and a conservative.

the money we dump into schools when we should be dumping it into parenting. The money we dump into help for the deprived youth as they still grow up and blame other types of people because of what they aren't doing.

this presidential race is more proof that religion is the least of our problems. But when people are out for personal revenge facts don't matter do they.

You still didn't answer the question. What do you expect a "Christian" President to do?
What has ANY Christian President done in your lifetime?
All Presidents do not follow the laws in place. Are we not currently telling our border patrol o NOT enforce the laws in place?

No - it's not the president's "job" to lead others to Christ. If the president is a Christian, he has a higher calling from God to lead others to Christ - not as a function of the government, but just as a person in Christ like myself.

A Christian president is to do the job within the boundaries set by the laws and regulations in place - just like any other president. Not sure what you are expecting with this.

I am assuming that she is not aiming for theocratic rule. There is nothing wrong with recognition of God as we go about our daily functions in this representative republic (not a pure democracy).

There is something wrong with FORCING and/or EXPECTING everyone to RECOGNIZE one of MANY christian versions of god.

Which Presidents don't follow the laws in place?
EVERY President has been Christian. Which President has led others to Christ?
I'm expecting you to tell me what you expect a "Christian" President to do next year.

As usual, you misunderstand and take the extreme interpretation...

I was just speaking of the president himself... not everybody. He can't force anyone to see God. I didn't think this needed to be explained.

I'm expecting you to tell me what you expect a "Christian" President to do next year.

#1 - President Obama - regarding his border lack of enforcement
#2 - If you look at the fruit of their behavior, I disagree that every president has been a Christian.
#3 - I don't know about next year. If a President was a true Christian - I answered your question already. If you are looking for me to say he will mandate hetero marriage, and force abortion to be illegal, and force everyone to go to church on Sunday and pay tithes, and force everyone with last name between H-J be forced to sing in a choir... I can't say that.

Let me answer it this way.

Let's say I am sworn in in 2017. I am anti-abortion. Does that mean I make an executive order banning abortions? No. What's the process in place? You go through Congress. A bill comes to my desk with legislation banning abortion that has been passed. Me signing it does not mean I have bullied my way to what I want because I am a Christian. It means the people voted in regulators that want abortion banned - and I would agree.

If legislation came by my desk that said the people want federally funded abortions, I wouldn't sign it and it would be based on my faith - and Congress could override my veto. Why is that different from any other day in the life of this country? Because of my association with God?
