Evangelicals chafe at Trump’s blasphemy.

A Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator who represents many evangelicals got three phone calls from constituents complaining about Trump’s profanity after a recent rally.

Paul Hardesty didn’t pay much attention to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., last month until a third concerned constituent rang his cellphone.

The residents of Hardesty’s district — he’s a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator — were calling to complain that Trump was “using the Lord’s name in vain,” Hardesty recounted.

The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught,” Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat, said.

Here’s what he would have seen: Trump crowing, “They'll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor.”

Trump has always been good when it comes to putting his foot in his mouth. Things like this could be his start of downward spiraling.
They are fine with kidnapping children, keeping those seeking asylum in squalid conditions with more than a few dying, ...

Fine with Trump having sex with a stripper while his wife, a porn model, is home with a new baby.

Fine with his constant lies and racist rhetoric.

But they draw the line at using the Lord's name in vain?

Jesus take the wheel.

Thatís the way they see it not sure exactly why Iíve been told Iím a liberal because I donít support Trump and I single him out. But he is president, so why would I talk about Obama or anyone else when it comes to running this country? Since Trump took office Conservatives see things as us VS them you can be a middle of the road person. Thatís doesnít make sense to them.

Actually it kinda is... liberals are so quick to play the "racist" card since they try so hard to make everything about identity politics.

So anyway, back to the topic of Trump saying "Goddamn" and Evangelicals objecting to his using the Lord's name inappropriately, why is this what they object to?

Why not any of the other thousands of things he has said and done that contradict the Bible?

Why this?

One would think this would rate pretty high up there when it comes to evangelicals beliefs.

Agree, evangelicals are okay with him cheating on Melania w/ child and paying off a prostitute to keep quiet, but if he says the Lord's name in vain, that's a different story.

They didn't care when he said that you grab them by the p...y but it offends them when he uses bad language. Amazing!
