Okay, I've cooled down a little since yesterday (where I was blinded by rage) and decided to say a few things to Mr. Swordsman4, who makes a dubious claim in his signature that he believes in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
I've got news for you, my friend, you do NOT. If you believe in the Bible and take it as God's word, you need to find a pile of rocks and beat to death any woman you've slept with other than your wife, or anyone you know who has done so. If you don't, you will be considered just as damned as they are.
But then you also support a guy who made promises to you, and the moment he became President laughed and went back on them, and then started doing what Hillary was going to do if she got in.
Even if you take the Bible at face value, Trump does not follow God's word. If you actually believe in God and Jesus, you would have voted for the woman who wanted to take care of the poor, build UP social security so the elderly and disabled didn't have to live out what days they had left in humiliation and poverty, the ONLY candidate who SERIOUSLY wanted to get corporations out of politics and would have done it. But you wouldn't handle a woman as President following the ideas of a black man, and hated paying taxes, selfishly claiming, "It's mine, the poor have no right to it." (While at the same time, saying the government should be allowed to force a woman to carry a child to term.) Hillary's philanthropy was a crime in your mind, even though it was the path Jesus would have taken.
You say you follow the word of God, and yet your actions contradict. The desire to treat people like garbage shows that Trump voters you do not follow the God they pretend you do, but instead worship the Golden Cow, much like Trump does, the only true reward for it being to publically call blacks, Hispanics, and Muslims names for a few years. They have sold their souls for their desire to be a jerk.
As a security guard, I work with a bunch of idiots, many who are late relieving my shift, often because they're too lazy to get up early. My supervisors are no better, and the only competent one is a foul-mouthed guy who talks like he's still in the Marines. BUT, one guy I work with who is always on time, always polite, and who always keeps the station clean is a Muslim. I know because he does the prayer when I show up to take over the shift, and I always step aside and give him room, and stay quiet when he does so. I respect the faith of others, never accuse, and never judge. When you respect the beliefs of others, that respect will be returned.
Read Luke 10:29-37 sometime. It's always been one of my favorites.

But children lived in Levittown
And hid in the shelters underground
Until the Soviets turned their ships around
And tore the Cuban missiles down
And in that bright October sun
We knew our childhood days were done
And I watched my friends go off to war
What do they keep on fighting for?
