    Southern Baptist Convention Minister, Dr. James F. Linzey Endorses Donald J. Trump

    "The hype among some candidates about how 'Jesus is Lord' and quoting Scripture to win the Evangelical vote is a charade. Mr. Trump has such wide appeal because the majority of Evangelicals are too wise to believe the politically expedient 'Jesus talk' by some of the other candidates. They along with the mainline Protestants, Roman Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and other religionists and secularists support Mr. Trump because he is honest and down to business and does not use Jesus to get out the vote, which is how other candidates insult every Evangelical."

    Hmm - he's honest? I think not. It's been shown that most of what he's said in the debates is not true. He's "down to business"? Yes, I agree with that but he's also offensive and he will bring this country to a place of a laughingstock in the world today. I can't believe anyone even remotely think's he's a viable candidate.

    SBC minister endorses twice divorced, thrice married foul mouth casino owner that has never asked God for forgiveness and doesn't know what a communion plate looks like.

    Okey-dokey.

    I just can't take the "moral stance" seriously from any evangelical who supported the Mormon who rejects Jesus Christ. After THAT, what could be worse in a candidate?

    Hmmm.O O Let's think about this.
    Hillary is okay with murdering babies.
    Romney rejects JESUS and is okay with murdering adults.
    Trump isn't believed to be a Christian, even though he says he is.

    Yet the same folks who supported the man who rejects Christ all of a sudden have a problem with the morals of Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?

    I guess in the world of the political evangelical, murdering babies is worse than rejecting Jesus. The stance doesn't seem very "evangelical".

    This is why a lot of folks put evangelicals on ignore when it comes to right and wrong. Folks have seen to much of our "situational" ethics that seem to re-adjust itself when we want to win an election.:rolleyes:

    I'm guessing maybe he's thinking of the death penalty?

    There you are. He's consistent in his support of the death penalty. Life is life and there's no difference between life in the womb and outside the womb except when it meets the political needs of the politically expedient.

    The death penalty is not murdering adults.

    What about those who were innocent but were executed before their evidence was known?

    We know there are innocent people on death row. A fair number have been set free when DNA proved their innocence.

    Certainly an injustice but it is not murder nor is it comparable the the slaughter of the unborn children.

    Oh come on. Zaac you are being unfair and dishonest.
    Sometimes we have to choose between the lesser of two evils sadly.

    a Christ rejector who isn't for killing babies is typically a better choice than a Christ rejecter who is for killing babies.

    All men are created in the image of God and still have a conscience, some listen to it more than others, even if they are not saved.

    BTW, By Trumps own admission he cannot be a Christian since he says he has never asked God for forgiveness.

    Ummm, no we don't. Where is it written in God's word that I as a follower of Christ have to at any point choose ANY degree of evil?

    Not in my book.

    Those without the Spirit cannot understand the things of the spirit and will make their decisions accordingly.

    Well, that didn't stop evangelicals from supporting Romney so I suspect it won't in this instance either.

    Prolific Bible translator and Christian minister Dr. James F. Linzey has re-affirmed his endorsement of Donald Trump for president, calling the Republican businessman “an intrepid Conservative who unapologetically articulates and accentuates the pulse of most Americans.”

    Dr. James F. Linzey endorses Donald Trump (Military Bible Association)


    Linzey, a retired military chaplain, the founder of the Military Bible Association and the chief editor of the Modern English VersionBible translation, explained his support for Trump during a speech in California on Sunday.

    At the heart of Linzey’s glowing support for Trump is his belief that the candidate speaks with honesty, according to a press release from the Military Bible Association that explains the endorsement.

    “Donald Trump is ruthlessly honest. That means America can trust him to do what he says he will do,” he said. “The alternative is to have a president who must do what his special interest groups tell him to do during his entire term as president.”

    In this case, Linzey said that the “president’s relationship with Jesus Christ would take back seat to his relationship with his special interest groups,” going on to question how some candidates are discussing Jesus and quoting scripture to win over evangelicals.

    “The hype among some candidates about how ‘Jesus is Lord’ and quoting scripture to win the evangelical vote is a charade,” he said.

    Linzer also cited Trump’s campaign contributions as a reason to support his candidacy.

    “His campaign is not funded by special interest groups,” Linzey said. “This means he is not beholden to them, and will have the freedom to build congressional support on both sides of the aisle and promote the values that millions embrace by implementing policies to make America great again.”

    Maybe, but that's yet to be seen. I couldn't care less what Europeans in general think of us because bottom line I couldn't care less about measuring up to them. We've saved their butts how many times in the 20th century alone?

    Well you should get used to the idea. Trump is blowback, period. He's blowback against the Neocons and the Religious Right/Christion Zionists that they play like a banjo string to keep us perpetually involved in military intervention for the sake of the military industrial complex that Eisenhower so passionately warned us about.

    The Ultimate Blowback from U.S. Foreign Policy? Donald Trump.

    Trump is what the evangelicals get for all those years of shameful glee they've taken in the human misery shed abroad from U.S. military interventionism that they so love.

    Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.

    You may dislike him and think his attitude is distasteful, but he is indeed a viable candidate. There is no question about that fact.
