Trump and the Ten Commandments and Southern Pennslyvania

So driving through Southern Pennsylvania this week-end, I was astounded by the number of houses wherein the Ten Commandments are displayed.  They mainly have the same look, as though provided by the local church, or an excellent door-to-door 10 Commandment salesmen.

All are self explanatory except the middle rightmost. It seems that Jesus' team was playing against Calvary and he scored a touchdown against them, which might have resulted in a Calvary loss.

Along this same root, often at the same houses, are signs for Trump near and far.

I do not understand.

Here are the 10 Commandments and let's look at the one Trump is ignoring over and over.

Specifically he has broken (and bosted of breaking):

#7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.  He is married three times, which is adultery in and of itself for many. And he had an affair with wife #2 (Marla Maples) while married to wife #1 (Ivana).

#8. Thou shalt not steal. He has stolen people's work via the judicious use of bankruptcy and bragged about it. He also steals partial work by use of the courts to renounce and not pay his bills.

#9. Thou shalt not bear false witness. He has lied about Obama's Birthplace. Now he lies about lying about Obama's birthplace. He has lied about his stance on various issues - including the Iraq War, the Libyan War, minimum wage, tax breaks, and Clinton's policies. He lies about Clinton's stance on the 2nd amendment.

I could make a stretch argument for more, but let's stick with the easy ones.

So, it doesn't make sense to me that these people who claim to hold God's Commandments in such high regard are publicly advocating for a person who ignores them for the highest office. Particularly when facing someone who is, by all accounts, more supportive of these commandments (although she also has trouble with #9: Thou shalt not bear false witness).

I'm pretty sure you could have gotten him on the first four too. Trump Tower is a shrine with which he worships himself (Violates 1 and 2). What a strange yard decoration. It's just so, you know, Old Testament. I think Jesus' command to "love your neighbor as you love yourself" would fit so much better:)
