Why Christians Wouldn’t Care If Trump Paid For Abortions


SOME RESEARCHERS DECIDED THEY
WERE GOING TO LOOK INTO WHAT MADE YOU THE MOST LIKELY TO VOTE
FOR DONALD TRUMP? THEY HAD A NUMBER OF PROFESSORS LOOK AT
THIS, STUDY IT, TALK TO 1500 PEOPLE, AND THEY PUBLISHED IT IN
THE JOURNAL OF SOCIOLOGY AND RELIGION. TURNS THAT THE THING THAT MADE
YOU MOST LIKELY TO VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP WAS RELIGION. LET ME DIVE IN AND EXPLAIN. FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU ARE NOT
FAMILIAR WITH THE, WHAT IS IT? I’M NOT A RELIGIOUS PERSON SO IT’S HARD FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND. THERE IS A MUSLIM GOD, A JEWISH GOD, THEN THEY FIGHT EVERY
ONCE IN A WHILE. TO ME IT SEEMS UNBELIEVABLE. CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM WHERE THEY
THINK MY CHRISTIAN GUIDE IS RIGHT ANDY IS MEANT TO
RULE THIS COUNTRY. THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT PATRIOTS,
THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN THE IDEA OF AMERICA. IT IS WRITTEN IN OUR
CONSTITUTION. THEY ARE NOT BIG FANS OF READING. HOW MUCH
CLEARER DOESN’T NEED TO BE? YOU TAKE HALF AN AMENDMENT LIKE THE
SECOND AMENDMENT AND YOU SAY COMES ñ DIDN’T YOU THE REST OF
THE CONSTITUTION WHERE IT SAYS WILL NOT HAVE ANY RELIGIOUS
TEST FOR OFFICE. WE ARE SECULAR IN OUR FOUNDING. THEY WOULD JUST RATHER LIVE IN A
COUNTRY THAT IS RUN BY RELIGION. THAT IS CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM. THEY EXPLAINED FURTHER IN THE
SOCIOLOGY OF RELIGION. IT’S ABOUT THEIR IDENTITY. I KNOW I AM RIGHT AND IF YOU SAY
I AM NOT RIGHT YOU ARE ATTACKING MY IDENTITY. THEY DON’T MIND ATTACKING OTHER
PEOPLE’S IDENTITY, BUT IF EVEN TOUCH A LITTLE BIT THEY
ARE SO HURT. NOTHING BUT SNOWFLAKES AS
FAR AS I CAN SEE. IT IS A BLIZZARD. LET’ SEE WHAT THEIR
CONCERNS ARE. IF YOU DON’T KNOW, WHAT
EVANGELICALS SHOWED UP AT AN ASTOUNDING 85% VOTER TURNOUT. 81%
OF THEM VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP. I SHOWED YOU THAT AND
PULLING EARLIER. TODAY A POLL CAME OUT BY PEW
RESEARCH, 78% OF WHITE EVANGELICALS STILL SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP. THEY USE DIFFERENT STATEMENTS TO
DETERMINE THEIR AFFINITY FOR CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM. THIS IS THE GROUP THAT TESTED
MOST POSITIVE FOR TRUMP. NOT ANY OTHER RELIGION, JUST
CHRISTIAN VALUES. BECAUSE GOD CAN’T STAND
CANADA OR CAMBODIA. HE DECIDED TO FAVOR US
AND ONLY US. NOW LET’S GO MORE TO THE
ANALYSIS. WE WILL COME BACK TO THAT ONE
BECAUSE THEY DID HAVE VIEWS ON MUSLIMS. IT WASN’T THAT YOU WERE
MORE RELIGIOUS OVERALL IT IS THAT YOU BELIEVED THESE TENANTS. THAT IS WHAT MADE THE
DIFFERENCE. WE HAVE OUR ANSWER, WE KNOW WHO
OVERWHELMINGLY VOTED FOR TRUMP AND PUT HIM IN OFFICE AND
WE KNOW WHY. THEY WOULD LIKE TO TURN THIS
INTO A CHRISTIAN NATION. THAT IS
NOT HYPERBOLE OR FEAR MONGERING, THAT IS WHAT THEY SAY. IN FACT THEY EXPLAIN THAT THE
REASON WHY THOSE WHITE EVANGELICALS ARE STILL WILLING TO LOOK PAST ALL OF DONALD TRUMP
ñ THE THINGS THEY SAID BEFORE, THE DIVORCES, THE EXTRAMARITAL
AFFAIRS, AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON, IT IS OKAY BECAUSE GOD
MAKES CHOICES ON WHO HIS MESSENGER IS AND IT IS NOT
RELATED TO THE MESSENGER OR THE MESSENGER’S ACTIONS. FOR WHATEVER REASON GOD HAS
CHOSEN TRUMP AS HIS VESSEL. HOW DO THEY KNOW GOD MADE THAT
DECISION? THEY DON’T, THEIR LEADERS TOLD THEM THAT. BECAUSE TRUMP HAS GIVEN THEM
EXTRAORDINARY AXIS. BEFORE THE ELECTION, DURING THE
CAMPAIGNING HE HAD AN ADVISORY BOARD FILLED WITH EVANGELICAL
LEADERS AND HE SAID I WILL GIVE YOU GUYS POWER. THEY WENT TO ALL OF THEIR SHEEP,
I MEAN FLOCK, AND HE SAID TO THEM GOD CHOSE TRUMP. IT DOESN’T MATTER, YOU CAN’T
MOVE THEM OFF THAT POSITION BECAUSE GOD CAN’T BE WRONG. ANOTHER STRONG PREDICTOR OF VOTE
FOR TRUMP IN WHITEHEAD STUDY WAS ANTI-MUSLIM SENTIMENT. SAY WITH ME, OF COURSE. CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM IS THE
MOST IMPORTANT BUT THEN MUSLIM IS ALSO VERY HIGH ON THE LIST. THE CHRISTIAN THING WOULD BE TO
LOOK OUT FOR YOUR NEIGHBOR. THAT SCORED REALLY HIGH. MUSLIMS HOLD VALUES THAT ARE
MORALLY INFERIOR. BUT IF YOU TELL THESE PEOPLE YOU
ARE NOT GOOD PEOPLE, YOU JUDGE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS –
BY THE WAY ñ AGAIN NOT TERRORIST, NOT RADICAL
MUSLIMS, JUST MUSLIMS. WHY? CONSERVATIVES AS WE HAVE
DISCUSSED BEFORE, THEY HAVE A LARGER ñ LOST AUDIO ñ WHO SHOULD
WE HATE DEAR LEADER? WE SHOULD HIT THE MUSLIMS AND WE SHOULD
TURN THIS NATION INTO ONE THAT ONLY SERVES CHRISTIANS, YES, THAT IS MY GOD. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO
TURN ON HIM. HE CAN HAVE 17 NEW AFFAIRS. IF WE FIND OUT HE HAS HAD
ABORTIONS AND HE HAS PAY FOR ABORTIONS FOR MISTRESSES IT STILL WILL NOT TURN THEM. BECAUSE GOD MAKES MYSTERIOUS
CHOICES AND HE HAS CHOSEN TRUMP TO MAKE THIS A
CHRISTIAN NATION. ALL THE THINGS THAT
TRUMP HAS DONE, STILL 70% RIGHT THERE ON HIS SIDE. NOW YOU KNOW WHAT WE’RE UP
AGAINST. THE IDEA THAT DEMOCRATS HAVE
THAT WE CAN WIN OVER THESE TRUMP VOTERS, REALLY? HOW? THE ONLY
WAY TO WIN THEM OVER AND I KNOW THAT THIS WILL ALSO SHOCK THEM IS TO WIN THE CULTURE WARS AND
TO CONVINCE THE YOUNGER GENERATION OF LOGIC, REASON,
FACTS, AND EVIDENCE. THAT THERE IS NOT A SKY GOD THAT
HEATS EVERYONE THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE YOU. IS ALSO NOT TRUE THAT THE UNITED
STATES CONSTITUTION IS IN FAVOR OF PUTTING UP A CHRISTIAN
NATION. SAYS THE EXACT OPPOSITE,
JUST READ IT. SO WE HAVE TO WIN THAT WAR AND
WE HAD TO DEFEAT THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE IS NO REACHING OUT
TO THEM, THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOU, THEY WANT
TO RULE OVER YOU. THAT IS THE REALITY OF IT,
NOW YOU KNOW.

  1. This is why there are journalists who also have degrees in religious studies, so that when religion is part of the story, they understand what the different religions teach and how the followers of these faiths think. Cenk is just in over his head doing this story.
