The United States has gone from a country that was overtly Christian at its conception, to being very open and tolerant. To a point where a loud portion of the population seeming to think it’s their right to make sure that the entire country is completely secular and that no part of our Christian heritage slips through and contaminates the boys and girls of today. Unless your religion is Islam, you’re pretty much out of luck when it comes to displaying your religion for the world to see. You’ll be branded fanatical, or intolerant if you dare to take a stand for anything.
The freedom of speech and freedom of religious expression has now morphed into freed from religion and freedom to oppress religious expression, and that’s just not the way it was supposed to be. There are completely secular cultures that have an arguably sustainable system, we’re just not one of them. We were built with the structure of freedom on the foundation of the bible in the hopes that these Christian principles would help delay the inevitable ruin of almost any society by the sin nature that is within each person.
That’s why it’s particularly ridiculous that liberals have a problem with Trump being religious. They, no doubt, also have a problem with the founding fathers being religious as well, but unfortunately for them, they can’t retroactively get someone impeached, so I guess the founders are safe.

“In the past year, we’ve seen extreme actions taken by the liberal media to discredit our now President Donald Trump. There is no question that Trump has taken bold actions to protect our country from the threat of Islamic extremism, but the bias we’ve seen in the media is unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Even some Christians are quoting the Bible out of context in an attempt to discredit Trump as a leader and a Christian. Fortunately, Trump is not taking this criticism silently. On a recent appearance on The Brody File, David Brody asked Trump how he deals with the stress of office.
‘Let me switch gears. You know, it wouldn’t be an interview between us if I didn’t ask a ‘God question,’ if you will,’ Brody began. ‘How has that spiritual journey been for you? Especially being here and knowing the gravity of the office. Do you feel the need to pray more? Where are you on that?’
‘Well, I’ll tell you what,’ Trump began. ‘I’ve always felt the need to pray. And you know that…So, I would say that the office is so powerful that you need God even more, because your decisions are no longer, ‘Gee, I’m going to build a building in New York,’ or ‘I’m going to this.’ These are questions of massive life and death, even with regard to health care. You know we’re working very hard on health care.’
‘But there, you’re talking about life and death and you’re talking about better lives,’ Trump added. ‘People living better because they have better health care at a lower price, which we’re working very hard on. So yes, you realize these decisions are all so important—there’s almost not a decision that you make when you’re sitting in this position that isn’t a really life-altering decision. So God comes in even more so.’”
The chief complaint of many, even some Trump supporters, was that he comes off as too arrogant and it’s kind of a fair complaint. Nobody wants somebody that’s going to let the office go to their head. It’s possible that what is coming off as arrogance is the confidence of a successful person, raised in a time when success wasn’t villainized and being an aggressor. Success in business and person life was what was hoped and dreamed for by kids everywhere when the Presiden was growing up, and it’s safe to say that he arrived, and as President, he’s arrived again. He’s very confident in himself, but not so that he doesn’t think he needs help from a higher power. If you don’t like that he calls that higher power God, you’re welcome to avert your eyes and stop the video, but it’s not only within our rights, it’s our heritage to have a leader that trusts in God to direct his paths.
Will he make every decision exactly the way I want or even the way all evangelicals want? Probably not. Will he always be right? I sincerely doubt it. But chances are he will be right more than a person who doesn’t ask for help and if we’re hedging bets I’m always going to throw my lot with the person who looks to the Master of the universe, not someone who considers himself a slave to his party (aka our former Communist in Chief).
Love it, hate it, it matters not to me and it certainly doesn’t matter to the President. So you carry on exercising your freedoms and he’ll carry on exercising his.
