This episode is the first in a series of perhaps 6-8 segments giving an overview of the 2016 election by a conservative Christian who is decidedly non-political and a non-pundit. It will pull together at least some of the threads that have led us to the Trump Presidency. Today I’m explaining how I came to the decision to vote for Donald Trump’s opponent, quoting along the way from some excellent sources, including the most excellent one of all, the Bible.

Sources quoted include:
