Susan Wright, Politico: Back during the primary, and even in the run up to the election, I took issue with faith leaders who endorsed Donald Trump. I felt they were ignoring the call to stand on godly principles, in favor of their fearful, worldly flesh. I still believe that. Christians had an opportunity to put not only an experienced leader in the White House, but a godly one, as well. There were so many godly men to choose from, who were also well-versed on policy. This was a missed opportunity that may have far reaching effects that we don't even see, yet.
With that in mind, you'll have to forgive me if I take an "I told you so" attitude with Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, and others who tossed their support to Trump during the election, who are aghast at what is going on within Trump's administration today.
Specifically, Trump's decision to keep in place an Obama-era LGBT workplace protection executive order, which would exclude Christian businesses from participating in government contracts, of any kind.
Also, Trump's decision to keep in place an Obama international envoy, tasked with promoting LGBTI acceptance around the world, as part of American foreign policy.
