Southern Baptist Convention Minister, Dr. James F. Linzey Endorses Donald J. Trump
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Southern Baptist Convention Minister, Dr. James F. Linzey (photo) endorsed Donald J. Trump for president of the United States when speaking to a group of Evangelicals on Sunday, February 13, 2016 in Escondido, California, to make America great again. Linzey said, "Republican Candidate Donald Trump is an intrepid Conservative who unapologetically articulates and accentuates the pulse of most Americans. His campaign is not funded by special interest groups. This means he is not beholden to them, and will have the freedom to build congressional support on both sides of the aisle and promote the values that millions embrace by implementing policies to make America great again. I endorse Donald J. Trump for president of the United States." Linzey is an Evangelist, US Army chaplain and veteran of nearly 24 years, chief editor of several Bible translations, and founder of the Military Bible Association.
Linzey believes that when Mr. Trump speaks, he hits all the major issues forthrightly and honestly. Being a Conservative means being honest with everyone about everyone. Honesty cuts across all party lines, offending those in any camp who are dishonest on the issues at hand.
But when Mr. Trump said at the South Carolina GOP Debate that former president George W. Bush lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, he said this because honesty is no respecter of persons and former President Bush did not admit there were no weapons of mass destruction until asked at a press conference. George W. Bush explained at the White House press conference on August 21, 2006 why we went to Iraq. He said, "The main reason we went into Iraq at the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction. It turns out he didn't." "This means," said Linzey, "Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 911 and we violated the US Constitution by invading a sovereign nation which was no threat to the United States." A Conservative is honest and impartial. An honest candidate is honest even when it is not politically expedient to be honest. Honesty is the mark of a Conservative.
Linzey went on to say, "Donald Trump is ruthlessly honest. That means America can trust him to do what he says he will do. The alternative is to have a president who must do what his special interest groups tell him to do during his entire term as president. This means that the president's relationship with Jesus Christ would take back seat to his relationship with his special interest groups. And when you disappointment them, terrible things can happen to the president and his legacy. The hype among some candidates about how 'Jesus is Lord' and quoting Scripture to win the Evangelical vote is a charade."
Mr. Trump has such wide appeal because the majority of Evangelicals are too wise to believe the politically expedient "Jesus talk" by some of the other candidates. They along with the mainline Protestants, Roman Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and other religionists and secularists support Mr. Trump because he is honest and down to business and does not use Jesus to get out the vote, which is how other candidates insult every Evangelical. America is in trouble and Donald Trump is in the race to rescue her and make her great again. This is not a Republican, Democratic, or an Evangelical problem. This is an American problem.
"We have to shut the border, bring the jobs back, get off the backs of Americans, get out of sovereign nations, get government out of private industry to truly have a free market place again, and let military chaplains freely practice their religions again in the military," said Linzey.
Friends, America needs Donald J. Trump. Let's make a difference these next four years. Let's make America great again.
