You're listening to Comedy Central now. Donald Trump has assembled a wide range of supporters at the RNC and some of the most vocal evangelicals, yes, he's a casino owner who's had three different wives, but the conservative Christians know a devout man when they see one go drown.


He represents the godly people of the United States of America has always acted like a good Christian. Absolutely. How can you build that kind of empire if you're not praying to God for good things every day? Is the man for this time in history and God will use him. And I don't know that he's going to even be aware of how God is going to use you.


Like he even knows what his relationship with God is. Absolutely. I think that they seem convinced. But I was still struggling to see how this man reflected the teachings of the good book. What do you think about the idea of loving thy neighbor?


You don't want somebody living next door to you that's going to sneak over a murder. You in your sleep, who's going to do that? Muslims. But then I saw a man who could convince even the most skeptical of the depth of Trump's faith, we are electing a man and Donald Trump, who believes the name of Jesus.


Pastor Mark Burns shout, Hey, Dad, that's the guy I need to. The man who gave the benediction on the opening night of the RNC, I believe Donald Trump, without question, loves God. He believes in the one true God. He believes Jesus Christ is his lord and savior. He believes that marriage is between one man and one woman.


He believes that. What he believes marriage is between one man and one one who does not believe what marriage between one man and one woman.


He also did tell a younger woman comes along. Check one Slovenian and one American. Right.


So your point is there's one man, one woman thinks I ran the numbers I don't check out, OK, so he stumbled a few times on his path toward righteousness.


But surely he embodies the most basic Christian ideal of helping those in need.


Jesus said blessed are the poor, for they will inherit the kingdom of heaven. He did indeed, Donald Trump said, I've watched politicians bragging about how poor they are poor, their parents and grandparents poor. And I said to myself, if they can stay so poor for so many generations, how smart can they be? They're morons.


Donald Trump is not the pastor of the United States of America. He's accepted Jesus Christ as the savior. Is he a seminary student? Can he execute the scriptures? I don't think so.


You know who has run a Bible study? I'll give you a hint. It rhymes with Hillary Clinton.


Yes, runs a Bible study she did when she was first lady of Arkansas. Well, you know, I can't speak to Hillary Clinton's relationship with God. I know she's really good at pandering to black churches, singing whatever Amazing Grace songs she can come up with for that moment. Do you think Donald Trump knows the words to Amazing Grace?


Well, again, I think it'd be more like tremendous grace. How fantastic the sound could save a pretty good guy like me. I once was lost. You know what? I was never lost. I was born with an impeccable sense of direction when it comes to Trump's views on the war and marriage. Christians are willing to turn the other cheek and attitude they extend to all God's children. Well, almost all.


I think that when Hillary Clinton calls Donald Trump a person that does disrespects women for a woman herself to allow her husband to disrespect her, I think that's how you're holding that to Hillary.


What we saw was what we see.


So what's worse, Hillary allowing Bill to cheat or Donald Trump cheating?


Well, I want to I want to be clear and. So now, you know, want to do anything? Bill is his own man, but you're connecting his actions to Hillary because he is Hillary Clinton's husband. You're not connecting Donald Trump's actions to Donald Trump.


I believe Donald Trump, just like any of us, when we fall, we fall to the sand.


I see Christians love to forgive. And Donald Trump allows them to practice forgiveness in truly biblical proportions of a man.
