Several Christians have complained to their civic leaders about Trump’s now infamous July 17 Greenville, NC speech, prompting one state senator from West Virginia to send a formal letter to the White House relaying the concerns. If Trump doesn’t stop, they threaten to stay home instead of vote for him in 2020.

The behavior? No, it wasn’t the rhetoric against the four freshmen women in the speech that they were complaining about, nor the complicity in the crowd chants of “send her back!” that frightened scholars of Naziism.

It was the fact that Trump used the word “goddamn” in the speech.

As Tony Campolo, an evangelical Christian himself, once said in speaking in front of a church crowd...

“I have three things I'd like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don't give a s***. What's worse is that you're more upset with the fact that I said s*** than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.”

That's actually quite spot-on coming from the convicted.

Trump was elected in part on a 'take no s***, don't care how I come across and what I say' attitude. I don't understand how this could have at all surprised anyone.
