“Bravo, sir (or maâam!)”
Thank you. I am a male in my early 60s.
I don’t mean to say that Senator Cruz is a perfect man or that he has God’s endorsement (God alone knows hearts). However, I am saying that if one wants to be logical and social/morale issues are of prime importance to them (which they are to me), then Senator Cruz is the logical choice of those candidates in the top tier.
I would also consider Governor Huckabee or Senator Santorum to be good choices for a social/moral conservative voter to pick, but they just don’t have enough support which leaves Senator Cruz. Senator Cruz is indeed a consistent social/morale conservative in addition to being fiscally conservative. He also strikes me as being strong on national defense, but in a balanced way.
Regarding Mr. Trump. I genuinely have extreme misgivings about him, and especially so because he is absent on social/moral issues. IMO he does not care about those things because he perceives they would not advance whatever agenda he has. Mr. Trump says he wants to make America great again. I will not call him a liar and say he is just saying this. However, I will state clearly that he is horribly misguided if he thinks any country can be “great” while suffering from Godless moral rot. To paraphrase scripture, you labor in vain to build a house without God’s help and blessing. God will not bless what is totally contrary to His revealed will. Open homosexuality enshrined in legal legitimization as is the continued slaughter of the innocent unborn? How can God bless what He clearly condemns?
So how can Mr. Trump make America great again when he only gives token attention to building a solid moral foundation that God would approve of? The answer is he cannot.
It grieves me to see so many of my fellow conservative Christians being deceived by Mr. Trump and the pragmatism of supporting him because “he is more electable.” It seems foolish to me.
