Republicans no longer the Christian party thanks to Trump
1. Trump has gay Peter Thiel address the audience. He says “fake culture wars only distract us from our economic decline, and nobody in this race is being honest about it except Donald Trump.”
2. There’s nothing in Trump’s speech about abortion at all. And nothing bad to say about gays, only that he’s going to protect “L.G.B.T.Q. citizens” from radical Islam.
3. In the transcript, Trump says “At this moment, I would like to thank the evangelical and religious community in general who have been so good to me and so supportive.” The he goes off teleprompter to add (if I remember correctly) “I don’t really deserve it.” The message to America is that Trump is NOT one of those anti-abortion anti-gay evangelicals.
This was a smart strategy, and one that went unnoticed by the MSM because they were too busy condemning him for being Hitler.
Even the previous keepers of the Republican Party realized that their core base was shrinking. Their dream was that Hispanics would become Republicans because they are religious Catholics and finally the Republican Party would have a strong majority to outlaw abortion. (This was a loser strategy. Hispanics never showed any inclination to leave the Democratic Party in order to prevent gringos from having abortions.)
Trump, on the other hand, is following my advice to broaden the party by bringing in blue-collar non-evangelical-Christian whites by rejecting the party’s pro-evangelical-Christian orthodoxy.
By the way, I’ve always thought that gay marriage was unnecessary, a case of gays wanting special recognition for themselves rather than being truly about rights, and somewhat harmful to the tradition of marriage which is a very good tradition is experiencing a worrisome decline. But the Republicans lost that war and Trump is right to surrender for the purpose of restoring American nationalism.
