JUPITER, Fla. — During a press conference on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump belittled a reporter who expressed concern about his use of profanity on the campaign trail, especially around children.

NBC’s Peter Alexander asked Trump about a new television advertisement by the American Future Fund Political Action Committee that highlights the candidate’s repeated use of expletives.

“Is that presidential? Are you embarrassed by that?” Alexander asked.

“I was a little concerned with that ad until I saw it,” Trump replied. “I think it’s better than any ad I’ve ever taken from myself.”

“A lot of parents are trying to figure out how to explain some of the language they’re hearing on the campaign trail,” Alexander stated, expressing concern.

“Oh, you’re so politically correct. You’re so beautiful. Oh, look at you. Awww,” Trump responded in a demeaning tone, resulting in laughter from others in the room. “Oh, I know. You’ve never heard a little bad, a little off language. I know, you’re so perfect. Aren’t you perfect.”

“What would you say to parents?” Alexander pressed.

“Aren’t you just a perfect young man,” Trump continued.

“I’m hardly perfect,” Alexander replied, telling Trump that he simply would like an answer to his question.

“Give me a break,” Trump said. “You know what? It’s stuff like that that people in this country are tired of. It’s stuff like that.”

As previously reported, some have remarked that Trump has used more profanity than any other candidate they have seen run for the office of president.

“Over the course of his time on Twitter, including in some cases after he announced his presidential candidacy, Trump has tweeted or retweeted profanity on his account more than 100 times,” reported the Washington Post in December.

“[Trump’s swear] words render him unfit to be a presidential candidate, let alone president,” also wrote radio host Dennis Prager in a National Review article entitled “Donald Trump’s F-Bombs” in 2011. “Any fool can curse in public. … Leading Republicans need to announce that there is no place in the Republican party for profane public speech. You cannot stand for small government without standing for big people.”

Reports noted last month while Trump campaigned in New Hampshire that his use of expletives had seemed to increase. In Portsmouth, while speaking of companies that relocate overseas in order to receive tax breaks, Trump declared, “And you can tell them to go [expletive] themselves!” He later claimed that stopped short of saying the full word.

Later, when decrying island-building in the South China Sea, he proclaimed that the Chinese are “ripping the [expletive] out of the sea,” which generated laughter from the audience.

He also spoke against Barack Obama’s trips Hawaii on Air Force One and subsequent golfing breaks, remarking, “I’d want to stay in the White House and work my [expletive] off.”

At a separate event in Exeter, Trump again used expletives in speaking of Washington politicians.

“I was going to say they’re full of [expletive],” he said, “but I won’t say it … because it’s too controversial, and of course it’s not politically correct.”

Trump has also stated on several occasions that if he were president, he would “bomb the [expletive]” out of ISIS.

    I don’t like the use of profanity but at the same time everyone I am around and have grown up with uses it, some apologize out of respect for me but at the same time I don’t take offense at it, tho. I have cringed from time to time depending on how it was used. I think they are just words with strong emphasizes and what matters is how they are being used for it’s what comes out of the heart that defiles a person. It’s simply not true that every sentence Trump uses is filled with profanity and also just because one isn’t using it in a public forum except Trump doesn’t mean they have never used it or are not using it. I’m sure the ones accusing him of this use of profanity use it in their own lives around their own children and are hypocrites. I have yet to see a video of him speaking in this manner around children, I don’t know what goes on behind the scenes where Trump is concerned and I’ve heard his many speeches and don’t hear him in those speeches saying anything I haven’t heard from other politicians. I am beginning to think how far this Republican establishment is going to criticize Trump, the only thing it’s accomplishing is making more and more ppl want to vote for him, myself included.

    • Angel Jabbins

      I don’t know about the Republican establishment, Josie, but for myself, I cannot vote for this man. As a presidential candidate and as one who represents our country, who (whether he likes it or not) is influencing the demeanor of our young people,,,he SHOULD care about the language he uses. And, he should care about how he responds to and treats people. That reporter, whether liberal, moderate, or conservative, asked a very reasonable question. He asked it respectfully, without any sarcasm at all. The answer he received was very condescending. Trump belittled the man and accused him of political correctness which had nothing whatever to do with it. A real statesman knows how to treat others with respect, especially those who may disagree with him. A man like Ronald Reagan. He was hounded like nobody’s business by the liberal news media. But he handled their harsh treatment with grace, humor, kindness so that even his most out-spoken enemies couldn’t help but like and respect him.
      Trump is a disaster and it deeply saddens me that so many Christians are supporting his candidacy.
      I have always voted in every single election. I am 68. I have not always been happy with the candidates I had to chose from. But, even so, I would vote anyway; voting for what I thought was the least of two evils….the one who would do the least harm. But this time I cannot do that. There is no lesser evil to vote for this time around. What I see is socialism on one side and fascism on the other (if Trump is the candidate). I will stay home and which ever way it goes, we will get the government we deserve.
      Sorry to have to disagree with you on this one, Josie. We agree on so much though and I do appreciate you comments.

      • acontraryview

        I must say that i, like you, am truly baffled by the level of support Trump has among Evangelicals. So much of what he says, and his behavior, seems at odds with the Christian belief system.

        • Josey

          Are you Christian?

          • acontraryview

            No.

          • Josey

            I already knew the answer to that by the things you support.

          • acontraryview

            If you already knew the answer, why did you ask?

          • Josey

            it proves my point that’s all

          • acontraryview

            What point?

          • sandra-paquette-

            Josey – these kind of people only come on these sites to argue stupidly. You know what the scriptures say, when they don’t listen, kick the dust of your shoes and move on. you know what that means, I know what it means they won’t, and so they can sit and scratch their heads and they can’t figure out what we are talking about. Oh well, that their stupidity when they think they are so cleaver.

        • sandra-paquette-

          As a born-again believer. – people to-day think if you just believe that there is a God that you are a Christian. Which is not so. Trump does not understand like a thousand more, even the once who sit in some of these so called churches. But he is good loves America and very smart he see what the problem is. Ted Cruz is a sleaze bag. If you want to get down to the nitty-gritty of it, out of the ones who are running how many are truly a Christian?????? Trump is more truthful than Teddy boy. A lot of Evangelicals are not voting for Ted is because they can see through this guy. No Trump is not a christian, like he thinks he is, but doesn’t mean God won’t use him. He is honest and loves America no denying of that, has great knowledge of the business world. Can you imagine the two clowns who made a deal with Iran the way the did, honestly, the smug chief in command knew exactly what he was doing hoping Iran will wipe Israel off the map cause he himself being a muslim HATES Israel that why he made the deal at the same time burden America with all the debt. I could sit and go on and on . But will end it here as it does get to long. But, as a christian Trump is the only guy who capable of steering America he puts in the RIGHT PEOPLE for the right Jobs.

          • acontraryview

            Thanks. That’s certainly provides me with some good insight into the mentality of those who are supporting Trump.

            “No Trump is not a christian”
            “But, as a christian Trump”

            You may want to consider a job as a politician. You already seem to be good at taking opposite positions depending on when it suits you.

          • sandra-paquette-

            Maybe you should do some research. Sounds like you haven’t got a clue by reading all your past statements.

          • acontraryview

            What past statements have I made that would cause you conclude that I “haven’t got a clue”?

          • sandra-paquette-

            Very easy – just by what you say all the way through you don’t have a clue as to what’s going on.

          • acontraryview

            “just by what you say all the way through”

            For example?

            It appears it share a trait with Trump. All you have are generalities and, like Trump, you can offer no specifics. Got it. Thanks.

          • Angel Jabbins

            Give me hard evidence of why Ted Cruz, a brother in Christ, faithful husband to one wife, caring father to his children, a consistent defender of the unborn, strong proponent of traditional marriage and biblical values, a staunch defender of the Constitution….. is a ‘sleaze ball’. Come on….give it to me!

            Trump….cheated on two wives (yet I am supposed to trust him if his own wife can’t trust him!)…says Planned Parenthood does some ‘good work’. Claims he is now strongly pro-life, but just a short time ago, he was pro-‘choice’, even gave money to further the pro-death cause. In the past, he has donated money to gay activist causes….recently told a gay group that, if elected President, he will continue to advance gay ‘rights’ even more aggressively. He makes tons of money off his gambling casinos, many of which have strip clubs. He has bragged about his sexual prowess with women. He fishes for applause lines by cussing out his competitors and mocking disabled people. He can’t even name a book in the Bible correctly and says he doesn’t need forgiveness from God. He once bragged about sleeping with married women. (Guess he thinks God is just A-OK with that.) He is egoistical, angry,and unable to accept constructive criticism with grace…especially if it comes from a woman. He treated Megan Kelly shamefully just because she asked him some tough questions. He doesn’t like strong women one bit. Donald is all for Donald….and….to top it all off…. He has a big filthy potty mouth.
            Now that sure sounds like a sleaze ball to me.

          • sandra-paquette-

            No point you already have your back up. So you wouldn’t believe it anyways. You are just out to argue not searching.

          • Angel Jabbins

            Your comment was offensive. I simply challenged you for proof of an accusation about a fellow Christian. As I suspected, you provided no justification for calling a decent man a sleaze bag. Even if you don’t care for his politics, why would one claiming to be a Christian defame the good name of a brother in Christ? Explain what you don’t like about him….that’s fine. But to call him a sleaze bag and then not back it up with hard evidence demonstrating it is true…that is sin, sister, and you need to repent.

            Cambridge Dictionary defines sleaze bag as ‘a ​person who has ​low ​standards of ​honesty or ​morals’.
            Merriam Webster: ‘a dishonest, immoral person’

            Urban Dictionary defines it as ‘a slimy, untrustworthy person, usually male, especially in dealings with the opposite sex.’

            What I presented are known facts about Trump. If you doubt them, I can send you the links.

          • sandra-paquette-

            Like I said you wouldn’t believe even if I presented the hard evident you would say “No truth to it” But, if Ted Cruz is your idea of a “Good Christian Man” he certainly isn’t in my books he is a disgrace. If you know the Bible at all remember the verse “Ye, shall know them by their fruits. Well, Teddy Boy fruit are certainly not great. But, will tell you one thing about him if you have done any research on him at all you would have known he is a “GLOBALIST” and don’t tell me he isn’t. He is so sneaky he is going in the back door as well as he is a liar. As for Trump, we are not talking about a man here claiming he is a born-again believer. He doesn’t understand like a lot more don’t understand what Christianity is about. But Ted Cruz is Claiming to be of such. BIG DIFFERENCE.

          • Angel Jabbins

            You are libeling a brother in the Lord. Doesn’t Scripture say: “If you call someone an idiot (‘sleaze bag’…same thing), you are in danger of judgment. And if you curse someone you are in danger of hell fire.”? Matt 5:22 (Jesus speaking)

            That Globalist nonsense has been debunked time and again. It is a complete lie! It has been brought up by his opponents every time he has run for office and, when the facts are laid out, it is mere guilt by association because his wife once did some work for the CFR. She was contacted to do some work there briefly and does not work there now. Just the opposite it true..Cruz has been a staunch supporter of US sovereignty.

            World Net Daily covered the story and debunked it a year ago.

            http: //www.wnd. com/2015/03/ted-cruz-again-battles-globalist-charge-against-wife/ (loose the spaces)

            “The national spokesman for Cruz’s presidential campaign, Rick Tyler, emphasized in a response to WND that the senator has never been a member of CFR and harshly criticized the organization during his 2012 U.S. Senate campaign as a threat to U.S. sovereignty, even though his wife was a member at the time.

            Tyler noted that at a campaign event in Tyler, Texas, in 2011, Cruz called CFR “a pernicious nest of snakes” that is “working to undermine our sovereignty.”

            Tyler explained that Heidi Cruz, then an energy investment banker for Merrill Lynch in Houston, served as a CFR term member.

            Her term expired in 2011, Tyler said, and she was one of 31 members assigned to the task force that produced the “Building a North American Community” report.

            “Her contribution to the report was narrowly focused on economic issues,” Tyler told WND. “She said as much in her dissenting view included in the report.”

            This is just a portion of a very long article on the matter. Stop reading conspiracy websites. You are being deceived. The only Trojan Horse in this race is Trump as you will find out soon enough if he gets elected. This all reminds me of when Obama ran for President and I got into some heated discussions with Christians who supported him. I think they got a rude awakening….and here we are going in the same direction again….deluded by a strong personality and promises.

          • sandra-paquette-

            Believe what ever you I don’t care – don’t waste my time.

        • Angel Jabbins

          I think Leonard Ravenhill got to the heart of the matter when he described the modern American church:

          “The early Church was married to poverty, prisons and persecutions.

          Today, the Church is married to prosperity, personality and popularity!”

          Christians today are comfortable and want to remain in their comforts. That is not what Christ called us to. He said, ‘Take up your cross and follow me.” We are to think biblically about all things…even in our selection of people for public office. But today Christians are willing to back a candidate who stands against so much of what the bible teaches…. so far from the example of Christ. He cheated on two wives of his wives, owns many gambling casinos, some with strip club acts, demeans mocks the handicapped, demeans women calling them ‘pigs’, ‘ugly’, ‘fat’. He treated Megan Kelly of Fox News shamefully just because she dared to ask him some hard, challenging questions.

          This piece about how he treated the reporter is just another example in a long list of reasons I cannot support this man. But, sadly many Christians are so deluded they are willing to lay aside what the Bible teaches. They say it is ok to vote for an ungodly man because God can use him. Well, He IS going to use him all right (if he gets elected)…but not the way they think… it will be to wake them up to the real cost of following Christ. I believe he is a fascist at heart. The choice before us: looks like it will be socialism or fascism. I choose neither.

          I cannot in conscience vote for Trump. I don’t care what he says he will do. All empty words from a man who has no moral grounding, who has flip-flopped on many important issues, has done nothing of any value except make money….and he has a potty mouth.

      • Josey

        No problem angel, I expected disagreement and welcome it from you my sister, I myself have been back and forth over some of the same things you talk about and in being not sure what to do, to vote or not to vote. I do get sick of the options given to us, voting for the lesser of two evils as that gets old. I believe there are so many good ppl out there who could be president and do some good for the Country but the elites won’t let that happen so we always get stuck with voting for the lesser of two evils. I’m not sure if I’ll vote either even though I included myself in above post because you have said in your post what I was saying and your post reminded me of those things and then lo and behold I saw a rally Trump was having last night tho. he wasn’t there for he canceled it but the protesters were fighting with the Trump supporters to the point the whole thing had to be cancelled, it was something I had never witnessed in all my life, looked like a riot to me. So, after reading your common sense comment, I’ll stay my vote unless the Lord tells me otherwise. Thanks for your post, God bless you and may the Lord help us through it all, I know He will as we trust in Him alone and seek His face. Come Lord Jesus, Come…

        • familyvonbarnhart

          We will always be voting for the lesser of two evils. Jesus isn’t running for office, so we vote for the man who has the best chance to move this country closer to righteousness. It might not be the most righteous man. Several strong Christians were in the running and voters have not supported them. In the primary I will vote for the most righteous person still running. In November 2016, that person may not be the candidate with the nomination from the Rep party. In that case I will most likely vote for the candidate who has the nomination. If we all splinter up and vote for candidates that have no chance of winning, we are basically voting for Bernie or Hillary. If we chose not to vote, we are also giving the Dem party one more vote. I don’t believe Jesus would abstain from his duty as a citizen. He paid the tax (with the coin in the fish’s mouth). I believe we have a duty to vote. Abstaining will not promoting righteousness.. We are just allowing the opposition to win. Paul said “I press toward the mark of the high calling of Christ Jesus.” He doesn’t abstain because the battle isn’t winnable in his lifetime. He doesn’t sit around waiting for Jesus to return. He actively does everything he can to win the race. I think we need to do the same as citizens of our country. Yes, I wish Jesus would come back tomorrow & set everything right , but in the meantime I need to shoulder my responsibility to help my neighbors live in a righteous place. If I do not vote & the Dem win the election – and pass more laws preventing me from witnessing at work, etc. — then I have neglected my responsibility in the spread of the Gospel. The loss of religious freedom will sink our country far deeper into sin than we can imagine sitting here today. Please vote.

        • Josey

          BTW…every time I pray about it I am compelled to vote so I have decided to vote, I don’t want to go back and forth any longer as the scripture says in James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. I have wavered time and time again over this issue and I repent of doing so. I would rather see Trump in there than Hillary and it is looking like it will come down to those two, things could change but not counting on it. Regardless, I am looking for my blessed hope.

        • Angel Jabbins

          When you get a chance, Josie, read this article: America Under A Strong Delusion. You can find it at http: thewordonpolitics. com/blog/ (loose the space). It really sums it all up.

      They want him out BAD. Obama has already vowed he would not be president. They want to hold Power and Money. Bushes and Clinton. The Lib is so evil to the point they are capable of ANYTHING.

    I once heard an old man say that swearing is a sign of ignorance because you have something to say but you don’t know how to say it so you swear to make up for it. years later, I came to agree.

    • acontraryview

      Agreed

    • Josey

      Once my daughter told me that she thought those words were just that an expression and nothing more, she had a nonchalant attitude towards profanity as many young ppl do and I sat silent for a moment when the Lord impressed on me this word to speak to her which was that it isn’t the words but the heart attitude behind the words. Usually someone speaking profanity is expressing some heart felt feeling such as anger and that is where it goes wrong, whether it is anger, disgust, discontentment, whatever it is. Before I came to accept Christ as Lord and Savior I spoke like a sailor, every few words was a cuss word, I am not proud of that but I was lost in darkness and God has forgiven me and one of the first things I stopped doing all to Christ’s glory was no longer a need to do that anymore, it wasn’t something I stopped but was delivered from it, God did that work. Trump doesn’t know the Lord, but there is hope for him, probably more hope for him because he is cold, not a lukewarm Christian whom Christ will spew out of His mouth who through his own self righteousness thinks he is fine. Sadly, there are many lukewarm Christians today that will be spewed out.

      • Emmanuel

        Thank you Jesus and blessing to you Josey. Welcome to the family. I agree, anyone can change if they allow Christ to.

    • Becky

      I agree. I’m actually surprised that someone like Trump (with all of his money and education), isn’t more accomplished in communication.

      • Emmanuel

        Bush W could communicate well and he’s half retarded. LOL

  • Scott Davenport

    I can’t think of anyone I’ve ever worried about that used “proper” language, but I sure know how to tell when someone is pissed….:) You can bet other countries are hearing Trump, but the language is scaring the hell out of them…they won’t be dealing with a wimp anymore….:)

  • Becky

    He can’t even form a complete sentence, even with all of the foul language he spews. He’s the king of backpedaling. He severely condemned former Mexican President Fox for saying the “F word” (once), so, clearly, he’s a hypocrite, too. He attempts to devalue Christianity by claiming that he has no need to repent, because, according to him, he tries to avoid making any mistakes, hence no need of repentance. Rubbish. Many look to him as their savior…their answer to all of their problems. It’s Obama all over again. Only this time it’s the republicans.

    God Almighty through Christ is my Savior and he clearly said this world is not of his Kingdom. As Christians we are to follow Christ’s ways and not the ways of the world. Why should a Christian choose the lesser of two evils?? It’s still evil! We, as Christians, know that there are no reparations for this earthly kingdom, which is why God will soon return with his new Kingdom.

    “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
    2 Timothy 3:1-5

    • Josey

      I mean no offense by this but I’ve watched a lot of Trump speeches and have yet to see his every sentence spewing foul language, yes he uses it but every sentence, no haven’t seen that and think that is an exaggeration. If that were the case I would not be able to listen to him at all.

      • sandra-paquette-

        Right On. They only see what they want to see. Same old, same old.

      • Becky

        I didn’t say every sentence. Nevertheless, he uses more foul language than a prisoner and I’ve heard them talk (I was a volunteer). Around me, around everyone really, they were extra careful to not use any profanity and it wasn’t like they were restricted from using it. Can’t say the same about Trump’s trap. He may not do it all of the time, but he does it enough to deem him as highly inappropriate. I would never let my little niece or nephew listen to him, because I would never know when an “F bomb”, or any other foul language would pour out. Nope. No way.

        Btw, I’m not offended, at all.

        • Josey

          This is simply not true, I’ve seen all of Trump’s speeches and it is not as you say, that he uses more foul language than some prisoners or ppl in general. I will use a talk I had with my 14 yr old grand daughter about things such as profanity and sex and she outright informed me that she is very much aware of this talk tho. she does not participate but the point is she let me know that she can’t be kept in a bubble. I hear profanity all the time, not advocating it, it’s just reality but Trump may use the word, “hell” or “arse” or whatever but in his rallies I’ve never heard the use of the F bomb, he might use it behind the scenes, so do the other candidates. If you think Cruz who claims to know Christ who wants the evangelical vote is perfect, you’ll be disappointed, humans are imperfect period and need Christ to change them. You want Trump to tone it down, fine but his critics will find something else to condemn him for. I will pray for him, that God opens his eyes to his need to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for in Jesus own words it’s easier to reach a cold person than a lukewarm one where he will spit them out of his mouth and I’ll pray for his protection for many want to do him harm mostly those who claim conservatism, shame on them! This Country has much bigger problems than words, I believe the Lord’s return isn’t far off but if voting for someone who is outside this crappy establishment might delay a bit for more souls to come into the kingdom, I will vote for him and I could be wrong about him but it’s ultimately in God’s hands who He has for this hour but it takes God’s ppl to vote. Abraham stayed God’s hand against Sodom and Gomorrah because of his nephew Lot whose family lived there and God sent angels in to take Lot and his fam. out of there before God unleashed His wrath. Today is the day of Salvation if you will hear His voice.

          • Becky

            If you truly had seen all of Trumps speeches/rallies, you’d know he uses the “F bomb” and lots of other disgusting words. It’s easy to verify…it’s all over utube.

            I’ve heard lots of bad language, too, but it’s not simply about the foul language. He goes against God in not one, but in many ways. Trump is for abortion and ssm. He teaches lies about the word of God…no need to repent if you’re always trying not to make mistakes. He’s a liar, proud, arrogant and foolish.

            It’s true that God is in control, but he’s allowed Satan to be ruler of the world. Should Christians follow him, because he’s ruler of the world? Of course, not. The same principle can be applied concerning a President or King. They’re placed there by God, whether to do good or evil…by their own choice, of course. Those are the ways of the world and not God’s ways.

            I know many Christians that will not be voting, because they refuse to partake in the “lesser of two evils” anymore…it’s still evil! Their hope and trust rests solely upon God Almighty through Christ.

          • Josey

            I certainly agree my hope and my faith and trust is in Christ Jesus and He alone and I wait for my blessed hope. I am not sure not voting at all is what is right for me or for future generations while we wait for Christ. Much prayer is needed.

        I’ll be voting for the person who I believe will do the best job of being President of the United States. I can’t say who I’ll vote for until I know my choices.

        • Josey

          And yet you judge the support some evangelicals give Trump…ha…that’s funny and it’s pretty easy to see who the front runners are and most likely those will be your choices.

          • acontraryview

            I didn’t “judge” anyone. I simply said that I was baffled by the support that Trump was receiving among Evangelicals. Does is not surprise you? I would think, just from a position and behavioral standpoint, they would be all in on the Cruz camp.

            As far as the choices go, I think the Republican side is still up for grabs. Personally, I prefer Kasich on the Republican side, although that doesn’t seem likely.

          • Josey

            Cruz to me is no option either for various reasons.

          • acontraryview

            Why do you think Cruz is not a good option? Of the remaining four, which do you prefer?

            I do respect the way in which Kasich has comported himself.

          • Josey

            I don’t think Cruz will be able to pull democrats and republicans together being he has made enemies and I also don’t think he will win the nomination, which also there are reports about a desire for a North American Union which I don’t like and his support of the TPP which agreement such as that have already hurt American jobs but helped other Countries. I liked what Kasich had to say in the second to last debate where he appeared to be the only adult on the stage but I don’t think he’ll be in the race much longer. I think it’s coming down to Trump and Cruz and most likely will be Trump against Hillary. Clearly, these are just my opinions and I could be wrong.

          • acontraryview

            If Trump ends up as the nominee I think there is very little chance of his winning the general election. Hillary certainly seems to be the clear front-runner for the Dems.

          • Josey

            I hope Hillary trades her pant suit in for a orange or striped one…what a witch of a woman, she pronounces judgement on law breakers except continues to lie and deny her treason

          • Josey

            I apologize for using the word “judge”, you mean you are perplexed.

          • acontraryview

            Thanks for the apology.

            Baffled – perplexed – same thing.

    • Josey

      I am baffled by those claiming to be of the Christian faith who support abortion, sodomy among other things that you in past posts have agreed with. Who are you to judge? I will listen to a Bible believing brother or sister in Christ who gives me their opinion even when they disagree with me and I can take what they say to heart and give prayer to it but when someone like you who has shown time and time again what they stand for comes on here and judges God’s ppl regardless of their opinion with the saying, “I’m baffled by the support of Evangelical who support so and so.” I get perturbed for I’ve seen what you stand for in your posts and you take advantage to judge any believer whenever you can but the only one who can judge a believer is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, not a non believer. The world will be no judge over a believer in Christ. Read the end of Revelation if you do not believe me. We who are in Christ shall rule and reign with Christ.

      • acontraryview

        Again, Josey, I did not “judge” anyone. I merely said that I was baffled by the support he is receiving from Evangelicals.

        • Becky

          It is rather odd. Trump is still for abortion and ssm.

          • acontraryview

            All of the candidates support abortion in certain instances. As for ssm – a candidate’s support or lack thereof is irrelevant, as the issue has already been decided.

  • Becky

    I can only see that Trump is against God. Thus far, he’s demonstrated that quite well. Trump is filled with pride and shamelessly announces it to the world (Proverbs 8:13). He’s unable to control his tongue (Ephesians 4:29). He tries to devalue Christianity (James 1:26), which also makes him a false teacher (2 Timothy 4:3). He acts a fool (Proverbs 29:11). He supports abortion (Exodus 20:3). He supports ssm (Romans 16:17, Leviticus 18:22).

    I’m not willing to choose someone who is against God. A Christian’s hope and trust rests in God Almighty through Christ, alone.
