Christian Trump supporters should repent of the way they treated Mitt Romney in 2012

Two elections ago, my husband, three friends, and I created an organization called “Evangelicals for Mitt” which dealt with the “religion issue” that invariably came with promoting a Mormon candidate.  We talked about how Christians could — in good conscience — support Gov.
