If Trump is a blow to the Christian Right, why did he kick Cruz's a$$ in every single Bible Belt state!? Hint: the Christian right loves him; the Social Justice Warriors hate him. I'm not Trump fan, but part of me wants him to win simply because it would drive the SJWs absolutely crazy.

Trump is the responsibility of the freeloading left. Stop them and the political class that feeds off them and there would be no need for Trump.

That is the only reason I want him to win. Shake up the political establishment.

You know... I was listening to a radio program stating that Trump voters would vote for Bernie and Bernie voters would vote for Trump even though they are polar opposites on many issues. Millions want to just upend the establishment on both sides.

It is going to be a very interesting summer and fall.

With the exception of the hair and orange skin, it might not be so bad.

I am not convinced the Christian far right is at all troubled by Trump's victory. On the contrary, I have not heard even the least objection from them in his campaign.








Ted Cruz did not a ringing endorsement from local television evangelist types here in Gopherland. Frankly, none of the GOP candidates did. From all appearances, it seemed to me they are waiting for the RNC convention to take place - it is there where they will exert their biggest influence and it would not surprise me in the least that they endorse Trump. They will likely influence his selection for VP. But all that remains to be seen.

I'm not so sure that, that is such a big deal. I'm no expert on the matter but bigger minds than mine have stated that the church has no business in politics! What's the predominant opinion in 2016?

On Monday, Cruz, along with delegate-wrangler Ken Cuccinelli and Christian-right warhorse Tony Perkins, held a conference call with the faithful to inform them that while they have no intention of challenging Trump's nomination, they will act as guardians of the militantly conservative party platform and maybe add some planks to address items of cultural hysteria like bathroom labeling.


It seems a major motive for the call was to keep Cruz supporters from making other plans for the week of July 18 (delegates typically have to pay their own way to conventions, as well as their expenses at them, and some aren't enthused about running up the credit-card balances to participate in a Trump coronation). Cruz campaign leaders also want their troops to make an extra effort to win the two seats on the platform and rules committee to which each delegation is entitled. Perkins, for example, has already won a platform-committee spot from Louisiana.


On the platform, however, Trump's cavalier attitude toward many holy tenets of movement conservatism provides an excellent excuse for sounding the alarm. The Cruz people being who they are, the focus is on cultural issues. Here was Cuccinelli's message to Cruz supporters, according to the New York Times' Jonathan Martin:

Exit polls in WV showed that 1/3 of Democrats would vote for Trump over Hillary (not Bernie).

Used to be a big deal for right-wing evangelicals. They'd strongly encourage, or even order, a woman whose husband was stepping out to forgive him and preserve the marriage.

LSD might be better as stated below your comment by Tec. Beck, like Matt Walsh, Ben Shapiro, Andrew Klavan are right wingers but they are not members of the television evangelist Christian right.

Television evangelist Christian right makes up like 0.0001% of the American population. They are only slightly more numerous than unicorns in the U.S. so who cares what they have to say. Most Christians don't.
