The reason why the anti-LGBTQ, anti-choice evangelical right supports Donald Trump was given in 2010

Religious right activist Janet Porter (formerly Folger) (last seen making a fool out of herself for Roy Moore during his failed Senate campaign last year) gave the answer as to why conservative evangelicals give unwavering support to Donald Trump in spite of his incompetence, basic dishonesty, and downright inhumanity.

And, believe it or not, she answered this question in 2010. It comes down to one basic thing:

When this video came out back then, it was view as comical. In light of recent events, particularly Trump in the White House, his very cozy relationships with Porter's colleagues in the evangelical right, and Justice Kennedy's retirement, Porter's prayer sails from comedy to eerie.

The sad irony is that Porter is heavily involved in the anti-abortion movement. And that is even spookier in light of the fact that should Trump's pick for SCOTUS get confirmed, attempting to overturn Roe vs. Wade seems to be the first order of business.

Then it will our turn to be at stake. So what can the LGBTQ community do about it? What we have always done from Day 1 - fight like hell. But it's not just simply us or those who believe that a woman has the right to control her own body who needs to fight like hell.

We all need to ask ourselves what example does America want to send to the world - do we want to be controlled by a bunch of self-righteous religious fanatics?

Or do we want to keep our freedoms?

Boy , you sure got it wrong. We have separation of church and state. Who are the righteous people on the planet? It sounds like you want to take over the country. How does it go...render to Cesar all that is Cesars and unto God what is Gods. (sorry about spelling) A free press is part of our constitution and protects us from the Nazis and other right wing groups.
