Trump and Religious Leaders

“Dear Mr. Pope, People who live and rule in a walled city should not throw quotes.”

After being involved in a church which made political participation the main thing, I do not really have the stomach for mixing religion and politics.

It is disturbing to me on an emotional level when the Church attacks or endorses candidates. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were of this world, then…”

I am not supporting Trump. I am resigned to the fact that he will probably become the next President of the United States. That is hardly an endorsement. It means I cannot vote for Hillary or a socialist.

Some find it disturbing that he claims to be a Christian. I find it disturbing that people are supporting him no matter what outrageous thing he says or does. I find his existence as a candidate disturbing. I find the lack of viable options disturbing.
