They would have been called racists.

Anyone who disagreed with Barack HUSSEIN Obama was tabbed a racist.

Pretty much as expected.

Many people are, of various political stripes. The things he says and does are pretty much antithetical to any person of any faith, including ethical atheists. I might add, that I have never in my life felt this way about a president. The late Barbara Bush, a life long Republican, cast her last vote for Hillary Clinton for the same reasons that I did.

I was raised in a mainline Protestant church that is on the just side of most social issues. Still, the Trumpsters have taken over many local churches. It is difficult for me to reconcile Trump's opinion about people from other countries - specifically - Latinos and Muslims. Ripping babies from their mother's arms, mimicking the disabled, none of this is Christian behavior. NO - it's not MORAL behavior.

In terms of finding a church that disapproves of Trump's behavior - I have a few ideas.

Colin777 ... check out churches that are Methodist, Presbyterian USA, United Church of Christ, Episcopalian, or Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) denominations. Can’t guarantee all individual churches in these denominations will suit your needs, but all are mainline denominations with a theology more inline with what you are seeking. If you’re willing to explore a bit, also check out the Unitarian Universalist denomination.

Best of luck.
A PCUSA church is probably worth considering. As a former PCUSA member, I can tell you most Presbyterians are highly educated. I don't personally know of a single highly educated person who supports trump, although I'm sure there are some.

OP, how about just find a place to pray and don't avoid political discussions in these places. Eventually, you will only get your feelings hurt.

I haven't found a 'pro-T' (or anti- T) church in the many (100+ USA and abroad) I have visited since the 2015 circus campaign launched. (evangelical centric... usually Brethren / E-Free, Berean, E-Covenant, Independent Bible, Mennonite, ... Never even heard him (T) mentioned (except as a 'prayer for leaders' (which he certainly could benefit from).

I don't have a horse in this race... trusting a 3rd Political party (with reason) will arrive on the scene... but unlikely due to USA 'TV Politics' (and Churches...) I certainly could not compromise my values / vote for either of the (2) major party nominees.

In any event... I'm planning my next 1 yr AWAY from USA in 2020 (return just in time to vote). I try to do that trip (RTW / or at least AWAY from USA) on an 'every-4-yr-cycle'. Trouble is... EVERYONE overseas is asking and far more interested and informed on USA politics than the USA (sheep) electorate. (understandably.. foreigners know the RISKS!)
