This sounds awfully Familiar

At Instapundit this morning I spotted this:

EVANGELICALS ON TRUMP, IN A NUTSHELL: “Donald Trump is going to embarrass me every day of the year, but unlike the other side, he doesn’t hate my faith, and seek to do me harm.”

Related: Christian Just Voting For Whichever Political Party Less Likely To Make His Faith Illegal One Day. Yeah, this second piece is satire, but is it really?

Let’s take you back to just before the GOP convention July 3rd 2016

I suspect I and a lot of the faithful will have to spend a lot of the next 8 years praying, fasting and begging God to help both our country and the world avoid this horrible fate but while spiritual steps to prevent these catastrophes are good and proper temporal steps must also be taken.

And the single best temporal step will be the election of Donald Trump and the breaking of the power of those Americans who have decided their fellow citizens are the enemy.

Again I don’t take this step lightly, I know that there will be times that Donald Trump will disappointment me just as I expected Mitt Romney to disappoint me on social issues and John McCain to disappoint me on immigration and George W Bush who disappointed me on spending and the bank bailouts.

But while Trump will occasionally disappoint me (when he does I’ll call him on it) I am convinced he will neither persecute me nor strip me of my rights for holding my Conservative Catholic beliefs and acting on them.

I am very sorry to say I can not make that same statement about Hillary Clinton, and I’m even sorrier to see the day when I would say this about a presidential candidate.

Given the events of the last 3 years since I wrote that post I submit and suggest that President Trump is more, not less vital to the security of Christians in America.
