They Say One Thing And Do Another

The Conservative Christians say they are pro-life and want to ban all abortions but once the baby is born they wipe their hands and say it’s not my problem. They say they are against religious discrimination but want special rights to discriminate.
The Religious Right’s pro-Trump anti-transgender hypocrisy
How much do they actually care about the “safety and privacy” of women?

When it comes to letting transgender people simply using the restroom, religious conservatives are quick to warn that any accommodations pose a massive threat to women’s “safety and privacy.” But after newly discovered tapes of the Republican nominee for president bragging about sexually assaulting women were published last week, many of those same conservatives are still standing by their endorsements.
And his running mate is just as bad.
On transgender protections: “Policies regarding the security and privacy of students in our schools should be in the hands of Hoosier parents and local schools, not bureaucrats in Washington, DC. The federal government has no business getting involved in issues of this nature. I am confident that parents, teachers and administrators will continue to resolve these matters without federal mandates and in a manner that reflects the common sense and compassion of our state.”
But according to the Huffington Post he signed a ‘Religious Freedom” into law.
The law quickly sparked intense backlash against Pence and the state of Indiana. Opponents of the bill argued that it would open the door to widespread discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals. Business owners who didn’t want to serve same-sex couples, for example, could now have legal protections to discriminate.
The law gives special rights for people to discriminate against LGBT people just by saying it is against their religion.

The Washington Post said that,
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. has blamed a “conspiracy” of GOP establishment leaders for the leak on Friday of a 2005 videotape of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s lewd comments about sexual assault. And James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and now host of the show Family Talk, stood by his Trump endorsement on Monday.
He maybe crude, rude, and lewd but he is against Hillary, that all that counts for those on the Christian-right.
