Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, former Texas Governor Rick Perry took issue with Donald Trump claiming to be a Christian, yet stating he'd never had to ask forgiveness for anything.
"I was standing offstage, next to go on to be introduced by Frank Luntz last summer in Iowa in front of a host of evangelical Christians," Gov. Perry said. "Frank Luntz asked Donald Trump, 'Have you ever asked God for forgiveness?' And he very matter-of-factly said, 'No, I've never done anything that I think I need to ask God for forgiveness for.'"
That notion completely flies in the face of salvation and grace.
"Glenn, if you're going to profess to be a Christian, which Mr. Trump does, but you do not understand in your mind intellectually or in your heart spiritually what salvation by grace means, then I got to stand up and say, 'Wait a minute. You really don't understand Christianity,'" Gov. Perry said.
Moreover, true Christian men honor and respect women.
Glenn pointed to a recent article from BuzzFeed that provides audio of Donald Trump, mostly on with Howard Stern, disparaging and speaking about women in the most objectifying and profane ways.
Here are Trump's "milder" comments on the actresses of Desperate Housewives in 2005:
Nicollette Sheridan was “solid four,” said Trump. “I liked the way she used to look.”
“Would you go out with Marcia Cross or would you turn gay, Howard?” said Trump, asking who he would date.
“She’s got a good body, just put a bag on her head,” replied Stern.
“Solid four to five,” added Trump on Cross.
And of Teri Hatcher, added Trump, “A six.”
“She’s really bouncy, really cute, she’s got beautiful skin,” Trump said of Eva Longoria.
Trump ranked her a seven.
This is the man evangelicals like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Robert Jeffries are praising and even endorsing?
"If you're an evangelical Christian, if you are a supporter of our veterans, you need to go and you need to vote overwhelmingly for Ted Cruz," Gov. Perry. "He is the person that is going to take two checklists with him every day to the Oval Office. One is the Bible. And the other is the United States Constitution."
