Well said @MJGerson : "Cultivating fear of the coming melanin invasion is now the defining theme of the Trump campaign. It is also the rawest recourse to bigotry on the national stage since Alabama Gov. George Wallace in the 1960s and ’70s... /1 washingtonpost.com/opinions/white…
"...And it puts White evangelicals and Catholics in a bind. The protection of nascent life remains a deep commitment of most moral conservatives, and Trump has been an antiabortion president. Yet supporting Trump involves the affirmation that blatant racial prejudice... /2
"...is not disqualifying in an American president. Publicly identifying [w/ Trump] scandalously associates the Christian faith itself w/ brazen bigotry. This creates soul-rending ethical complexities... / 3
"...if a racist campaign does not shake Christian support, what possible difference is that faith making?" 4/4

Believer - the Bible makes it clear God does not need man’s protection. The mere suggestion is the height of pride (see Job 38 for a refresher of how mighty He is, “Have you commanded the morning since your days began...?)
Isa 66:1-2 “Thus says the Lord, Heaven is my throne & the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, ... All of these things my hand has made ... But this is the one to whom I look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.”
Further, if you’re voting out of fear; you think Trump will protect your religious freedoms...recall Scripture makes clear we look to God alone for our protection. Israel is sent into exile in part because they put their trust in man. See Jer 17:5-8
