Donald Trump wants all religions to unite

While the nation seems to be focusing on Sunday night’s Democratic Debate, Republican front-runner Donald Trump held another rally in Lynchburg, Virginia. In his address to Liberty University students on Martin Luther King Day, he called on Christians to “band together” and “unify”, as stated by Politico.

It’s obvious that this message was an attempt to attract evangelicals on his side, since they’re an important Republican group, especially in Iowa, the state where he and Ted Cruz are very close in polls, with just a few days left until the February 1 caucuses.

Christians must unite!

“Christianity, it’s under siege,” said Donald Trump, who at one point bungled a scriptural citation. “We don’t band together. Other religions, frankly, they’re banding together … we have to unify.”

Also, he made a reference to the fact that Liberty University, the place where the rally was held, was founded by Jerry Falwell Sr. in 1971, a model for the nation. “You’ve banded together. You’ve created one of the great universities,” he said. “Our country has to do that around Christianity, so get together, folks.” Despite this statement, the university’s current president, Jerry Falwell Jr., said he doesn’t support Donald Trump.

“He is not a puppet on a string like many other candidates who have wealthy donors as their puppet masters,” said Falwell, referring to Trump’s latest attack against Ted Cruz. “The American public is finally ready to elect a candidate who is not a career politician.”

Mr. Falwell said that he is friends with Donald Trump and his adviser, Michael Cohen, since 2012, when the businessman first spoke at the University.

Is Trump a good Christian?

Even though the Republican doesn’t seem to be your average Christian candidate, Falwell assured the students that Trump actually has a list of good deeds, about which the media doesn’t know: saving a basketball tournament in Harlem, helping business affected by the outsourcing of a Maytag plant or even paying off the mortgage of a couple who helped him fix a car.

Donald Trump lives a life of loving and helping others, as Jesus taught in the New Testament,” Falwell said.

During his discourse, Donald Trump said that his plan is to “protect Christianity”, also mentioning that the Islamic State is a real threat.

Oops, busted!

Lately, he seems to do as much as possible in order to attract Christian voters. This Monday, during the rally, he even tried to cite the scripture. “Two Corinthians 3:17, that’s the whole ballgame,” said Trump referring to a Bible verse favored on campus that says, “Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

Of course, his rivals spotted the mistake immediately, claiming that Christians cite the book as “Second Corinthians”, not “Two Corinthians”, says Politico.

Finally, after finishing his discourse about uniting religions, Donald Trump didn’t mention anything about his rivals, not even about Ted Cruz.

    SO YOU WANT CHANGE IN OUR NATION? YOU HAVE GOT IT, BY VOTING FOR
    DONALD TRUMP?

    This is the epitome of what Democrats and the GOP Syndicates is
    doing to this sovereign country and only Donald Trump, a Conservative that the
    two parties are livid about? Just remember
    Donald Trump is disliked, because he cannot be bought by the wealthy special
    interests. It means change for the American people, as they have been ripped
    off long enough by the politicians that are in the financially dependant on the
    deep pockets of the affluent, which is the dark side of this government; very
    few are innocent of taking money. They are happy with their pockets full of
    cash and it’s not only for their campaigns, but their own personal use.

    JUST REMEMBER DONALD TRUMP IS UNTOUCHABLE, AS NOBODY CAN BUY HIS
    ALLEGIANCE TO THE US PEOPLE. THE REST ARE
    PUPPETS OF THE POWERFUL, THE INFLUENTIAL WHO HAVE THEIR LOBBYISTS HIDING IN
    EVERY CORNER OF CONGRESS WITH A BLANK CHECK.
    ONCE SEATED IN CONGRESS MAYBE MONTHS OR YEARS LATER, THEY WILL RECEIVE A
    PHONE CALL…IT’S TIME TO PAY THE PIPER?

    SO MANY ISSUES CAN BE RESOLVED BY THIS BUSINESSMAN AND NOW
    POLITICIAN ON BOTH SIDES WILL DO EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER TO DESTROY HIS PARAMOUNT REPUTATION FOR GETTING
    THINGS DONE.

    King Obama is to blame for the lax enforcement at the border,
    but the House of Representatives also must carry the REAL BLAME, as they let
    pass the Omnibus budget and funding everything that this extreme Liberal
    President wanted. This includes taxpayer money for the resettlement of Syrian
    Refugees, which should remain in safe zones in their own country guarded by
    neutral troops and BILLIONS OF DOLLARS to house, educate and offer benefits to
    illegal alien entries throughout our nation.

    ONLY ONE MAN, ONE VERY TOUGH GUY WILL BEGIN THE DEPORTATION OR
    REPATRIATION OF THE MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS SQUATTING HERE. AFTER INAUGURATION BUILDING THE WALL, FIRST ON
    DONALD TRUMPS LIST AND THEN THE PINNACLE OF INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT MANDATED
    E-VERIFY. THE DEPLOYMENT OF 1000 OF MORE ICE AGENTS, TO IMPLEMENT A NEW PHRASE
    OF E-VERIFY TO SEEK OUT THE UNKNOWN NUMBERS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, OVERSTAYS
    AND MIGRANTS, USING DIGITAL
    E-VERIFY. AS A FULCRUM IN THE WORKPLACE,
    TARGETING TO SEE WHO ARE HERE LEGALLY? AGENTS WILL COME DOWN HEAVILY ON
    BUSINESSES THAT PROVIDE WORK FOR ILLEGAL NATIONALS, AND THEY WILL BE HELD
    ACCOUNTABLE WITH HARSH PENALTIES.

    California issued more than a
    half-million driver’s licenses under a new law granting the identifying
    documents to immigrants who may be in the country illegally,” the Associated
    Press noted.
    “The Department of Motor Vehicles announced Wednesday that 605,000 licenses
    were issued since AB60 took effect last January. That’s out of 830,000
    applications.”

    But this month, passions have run high amid a spate of
    federal immigration raids both real and imagined. In events that sent tremors
    through California politics, “Democrats, led by the Congressional Hispanic
    Caucus, have protested a number of raids carried out in southern states by
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers against illegal immigrants from
    Central America — 121 adults and children who had been ordered to leave the
    country by a judge,” ABC News reported.
    “Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-California, who has been in constant communication
    with White House officials and attended the Tuesday meeting with the White
    House council, said she was not aware of any imminent ‘pause’ to the
    operations.” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., had predicted a
    reprieve, although he couldn’t speak to when the White House might announce it, according to The Hill.
