D: Morally unsound; morally unsound policies

From a Christian and /or biblical standpoint (those are not always the same), which should we choose? If A is available vs any other the choice is obvious. But this is never the case.

What pairing best reflects the last election?

B vs C? B vs D? B vs B? We could spend all night sorting it out.

For the sake of argument, Suppose that it is between B (Hillary) and C (Trump).

Biblically what should we do? Or, what saith the Lord?

Should we consider the impact on Christians? Non-Christians?

Suppose that all evangelicals stayed home and Hillary won, which would have led to a generation of legal opinions maximizing abortion access and minimizing Christian conscience. What would the public have thought of evangelicals? Would Jesus have made that decision?

These things are unclear. Which is why I think everyone voted by whatever light they possessed at the time. And for whatever the errors of judgment that were made, the blood of Christ will cover them all.

Peace.

False. Mike Pence.

I was a hard-core Never-Trumper Ted Cruz guy until the blowhard sucked all the air out of the GOP and then I had a choice, either support the amoral unindicted buffoon or the amoral supporter of a sexual predator with a known history of selling out, so I voted Trump.

If Trump bows out before the election and lets Pence take the helm, I'll be a happy camper. Would Pence be able to keep the same momentum and achieve the same rate of judges, deregulation, etc? Dunno, but better him than any Dem.

Okay. So how does this have anything to do with what I posted? You voted for Mike Pence? The one is not now in charge and is statistically unlikely to take over? You voted for Trump, despite who or what you think you were voting for.

I recommend to watch Netflix mini docu-series "The Family". I find it a bit disturbing. Most posters here maybe won't, but perhaps should IMO. Good to be informed at the very least.
