[Ed. – So many sermon topics, so little time…]
President Barack Obama ridiculed Republicans — particularly Christians — who said they forgave Donald Trump after a 2005 video was leaked featuring him making lewd comments about women.
“I hear people saying, ‘I’m a Christian and so I’m all about forgiveness because nobody’s perfect,’” Obama said, adding that he himself was a Christian who believed in redemption for people who made mistakes.
“If someone does something terrible … I can forgive ‘em, I suppose, if they’re sincere about it, but I don’t want them necessarily leading the country,” he said.
Obama said that it was impossible for both Christians and Republicans to continue to denounce Trump’s comments but to still support him for president.
“You can’t have it both ways here,” he said.
