This is in response to a Feb. 21 letter to the editor in the Aiken Standard. The writer said he believed Trump’s election in 2016 was an act of God.
I find that assertion beyond disturbing.
I too, am a Christian.
I find many of Trump’s actions completely un-christian. My God does not approve of: Demonizing immigrants; separating families at our border-they are seeking refuge from violence; caging children of immigrants for months if not years; referring to white nationalists as “very fine people”; eliminating health insurance for millions of people; eliminating food stamps leaving millions of children in need; making it more difficult for people with disabilities to obtain Social Security benefits; turning our natural resources over to companies that pollute our environment; filling this administration with people that are tried and subsequently found guilty of lying to Congress and the FBI; having numerous affairs with adult film stars while married; continually using foul language and advocating violence at campaign rallies – thankfully many networks bleep it out; bragging about sexually assaulting women; ridiculing people with disabilities; denigrating the late senator and American hero John McCain, Gold Star families and veterans; alienating our NATO allies and promoting dictators; condemning freedom of the press; using the justice department to target his political enemies.
The writer of the Feb. 21 letter thinks it is a good idea for Republicans to vote in the Democratic primary for a weak candidate. He hopes that will help Trump get reelected. I find it ironic that the writer would suggest rigging an election. Trump claimed the 2016 election was rigged and he should have won the popular vote. His own-appointed committee proved that to be just another lie. My God does not approve of cheating to win an election.
Please do not use my God to dismiss Trump's activities.
