The annual Values Voter Summit is sponsored by Christian hate groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association, groups that engage in the demonization of LGBT people by falsely portraying them as sick, vile, incestuous, violent, perverted, and a danger to the nation.
"We will not allow government workers to censor sermons or target our pastors or our ministers or rabbis", the president said. These and millions of other voters went heavy for the "working-class billionaire", whom they saw as someone who would push back against an assault on their values and way of life.
He invoked the alleged "War on Christmas", promising, "We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values".
Trump stressed his move to weaken the Johnson Amendment, which limited political activity or endorsements by religious groups that received tax exemptions, as well as his administration's effort to expand the rights of employers to deny women insurance coverage for birth control.
But Trump also struck several empathetic notes, offering condolences to the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting with a quote from scripture and pledging support to the people of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, which have been ravaged by recent hurricanes. He got another standing ovation when he proclaimed that "we respect our great American flag". But you know what, now they're changing back again. "I didn't have a schedule, but if I did have a schedule I would say we are substantially ahead of schedule".
"We're getting near that attractive Christmas season that people don't talk about any more, they don't use the word Christmas because it is not politically correct", Trump said. They'll have it painted.
"Our people never lose faith, never give in, and always hope for a better tomorrow", he said. We will pass on the blessings of liberty, and the glories of God, to our children. "We're being told at every turn-including Trump's first decision to appoint Pence-that actions will be taken to make us second-class citizens again". "We worship God. Inspired by that conviction, we are returning moral clarity to our view of the world and the many grave challenges we face". He opened his speech by mentioning the tragedy in Las Vegas and the need for prayer at this hard time.
