Trump doesn't pass the decency test. It is shocking to me how many major so-called Christian pastors and groups in this country have gotten behind Trump. I grew up in the church and I know a charlatan when I see one. He's a poser, trolling for the Evangelical vote. I never knew there were so many nasty Evangelicals out there. What happened to Christianity in America? It's a national embarrassment. The whole world is watching. Teenagers in Cambodia are asking if this Trump guy is for real (I have friends who were just there and encountered that question.). Mortified as a nation.

A few weeks ago, I read a similar article about Hillary. She is nice and decent in public. But, not in private, as quoted by those who know her. In private, potty language. Shame on all these politicians or "wanna be" politicians.

Character counts.
