    I've had to explain this so many times, yet the brainless, bigoted, Christophobic vermin remain too stupid to listen, so I'll explain one more time:

    Christians DO NOT approve of the various moral failures President Trump has had in the past. However, as President, we support him because what most American Christians want most of all is simply to know that their rights to Freedom of Religion will be protected, and President Trump has proven through his actions to be able and willing to do that.
    Before him, we were under the thumb of Obama, whose administration was filled with one example after another of him deliberately seeking ways to give the finger to Christians and trample their rights, while simultaneously kissing up to Muslims every chance he could get. Right from the start, he ended the White House's official celebration of National Day of Prayer, which had been a White House tradition for over sixty years and whose roots go all the way back to George Washington. At least one year, Obama didn't give any kind of public address for Easter, yet did so for several Muslim feast days. He was the first President who said the White House now had a "Holiday Tree" in December. The only times Obama quoted the Bible in public would be to insult or criticize it in some way. Worst of all, he put forth his repulsive Birth Control Mandate, in which Christian pro- life employers would be forced by law to compromise the teachings of their faith and basic dictates of their consciences by forcing them to pay for their employees' abortions as part of their health care plans, or else be branded as criminals. This was an obvious violation of their First Amendment right to Freedom of Religion, yet Obama didn't care in the slightest.
    If Hillary had been elected, it is guaranteed that she would have continued if not flat- out worsened Obama's war on Christianity. In a public speech shortly before she officially began her 2016 campaign, she openly said that people's religious beliefs "Need to be changed" in order to advance her psychotically pro- abortion agenda.
    In contrast, let's look at President Trump:
    About three months after taking office, he issued an Executive Order which, among other things, reversed Obama's Birth Control Mandate so that Christian pro- life employers who object to abortion along religious grounds can now be exempted from the Mandate. In May of this year, he brought back the White House celebration of National Day of Prayer, and gave a great speech at it.

    In short, American Christians would MUCH rather have a president who, while not exactly a paragon of decent moral behavior, is willing to at least ensure we can practice our beliefs in peace. This is in notable contrast to the Dem leaders like Obama and Hillary who display open hostility to the Christian faith and are eager to try and make our beliefs a crime.
    As for the claim about how Christians should care for the needy and homeless, THEY DO! The most real good done for the homeless and needy is done not by overreaching government bureaucrats and programs, but by Christians who, through their churches and charitable organizations, run shelters and soup kitchens, organize donation drives, and so on. A key example of this (Though admittedly it was from before Trump's administration) was found in post- Katrina New Orleans. While FEMA and the other government agencies were tripping over their own feet and doing more harm than good, and while their brainless mayor of New Orleans and governor of Louisiana (Both Democrats) were spending all their time blaming President Bush for problems that were caused MUCH more by their own incompetence, it was the Christian groups who came driving in from all over the country to help and waded through raw sewage to get food, water, and medical supplies to the survivors.

    Maybe this time it'll stick and it'll be a while before the DUmmies repeat that same stupid message yet again.
