Regarding Falwell endorsing Trump
It has been speculated that Jerry Falwell, Jr. endorsing Trump is the result of Trump probably making a generous contribution to Liberty U. I do not think Falwell's endorsement is about money. I saw another prominent Christian leader on Fox endorsing Trump. I believe, in essence, that these Christian leaders are saying they are fed up with the GOP and the direction our country is going. They also believe we have lost the country to liberalism and that the media has so tainted Cruz that he is unelectable.
I suspect that the rational of these Christian leaders is, let's punt social issues. Let's just throw in our chips for Trump and hope for the best if he is elected. At least he is better than Hillary. Personally, I think punting social issues is a grave mistake by disciples of Christ.
In a two-man race, Christian leaders are rejecting the candidate they know will stand up for religious liberty; fight the murder of innocent life, and push back against America's anti-Christian cultural rot. It appears these leaders are functioning out of fear rather than faith.
Oh, we hear you, Lloyd, but Cruz can't win!
While it does not apply directly, Ben Franklin's quote comes to mind. "He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security."
When Moses came down from the mountain, he said, "Who is on the Lord's side? Come to me." Folks, I am standing on the Lord's side.
