Donald Trump on Monday will make a virtual appearance before a Christian group that calls for abortion to be “eradicated entirely,” as the presumptive Republican nominee again takes on an issue that Democrats want to make a focus of this year’s presidential election.

The former president pre-recorded a video that will be shown at an event hosted by The Danbury Institute, which is meeting in Indianapolis in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Danbury Institute, an association of churches, Christians and organizations, says on its website that it believes “that the greatest atrocity facing our generation today is the practice of abortion” and it “must be ended.”

“We will not rest until it is eradicated entirely,” the group said.

    If any of those “Christians” ever actually read the Bibles that they like to wave around so much, they would be embarrassed and ashamed to have someone like Trump speaking at their convention.

      Nah. Then they’d just be embarrassed they had been pushing a book with such a woke lefty agenda. Some might even learn that they can throw away most of that commie stuff in the later parts of the book, and just keep the juicy bits they liked in the first half about how men are in charge, and slavery is okay so long as you follows some rules. Oh, except Revelations. That part rocks, let’s keep that. In fact… Let’s make it happen. That would be so sick.

      /s (even though I really shouldn’t have to)

    You get three guesses on why his handlers don’t want him giving the address live … and the first 2 guesses don’t count.

    He is just pandering, but honestly he wouldn’t care either way because he is circling the drain anyway

    Funny thing is, if Trump were to get one of his mistresses pregnant, he would pay for a golden helicopter ride to the clinic.
