When he speaks about values and ethics and moral principles, Trump is speaking what is, for him, a foreign language. (Even more so, when theology is involved: There's a reason we don't normally say man is made in the "holy" image of God.) These topics are tainted by his advocacy. They're better off without his endorsement. I'm in favor of his acting at a policy level to uphold conservative (and often Christian) values, but we're better off if he does not try to be a cheerleader for them. I'm reminded of the old adage, "With friends like these..." Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.
