Trump Panders To Christian Extremists At Values Voter Summit

Trump Panders To Christian Extremists At Values Voter Summit October 13, 2017

Theocracy alert: President Donald Trump defecates on the U.S. Constitution while delivering red meat to Christian extremists at the Values Voter Summit.

In a new low, President Donald Trump becomes the first sitting president to address the Values Voter Summit, an annual gathering of anti-gay Christian extremists who aim “to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life, and limited government that make our nation strong.”

The annual Values Voter Summit is sponsored by Christian hate groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association, groups that engage in the demonization of LGBT people by falsely portraying them as sick, vile, incestuous, violent, perverted, and a danger to the nation.

The event featured extreme rhetoric and hate from politicians and conservative media members from across the nation.

Speaking to a room full of the most deplorable Christian extremists, Trump called the U.S. a “nation of believers” strengthened and sustained by the “power of prayer.”

America is a nation of believers and together we are strengthened and sustained by the power of prayer.

During his address Trump declared:

We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values. As we approach the end of the year—you know, we’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct. You go to department stores and they’ll say Happy New Year and they’ll say other things; it’ll be red, they’ll have it painted but they don’t say it. Well, guess what? We’re saying Merry Christmas again.

And:

We don’t worship government, we worship God. Our founders invoked our creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. And how times have changed. But you know what? Now they’re changing back again.

Commenting on Trump’s remarks,  Roy Speckhardt, Executive Director of the American Humanist Association, said:

Trump’s blatant contempt for the Establishment Clause and the First Amendment should alarm every American, regardless of their political affiliation or belief. This isn’t only an assault on nontheists, but lays the groundwork to further discriminate against those in the LGBTQ community, those who support women’s reproductive rights, and many others committed to improving our nation.

Bottom line: Trump is pushing theocracy, and conservative Christians love him for it.
