    Trump was asked to name "one or two of your most favorite Bible verses" during an interview on Bloomberg's television show "With All Due Respect" Wednesday. He wouldn't answer the question.

    "I wouldn't want to get into it because to me that's very personal. You know, when I talk about the Bible, it's very personal, so I don't want to get into verses," Trump said, adding, "The Bible means a lot to me, but I don't want to get into specifics."

    Later in the interview, host John Heilemann asked Trump if he was "an Old Testament guy or a New Testament guy."

    "Probably equal," Trump said.



    It is laughable to watch Trump bow and sway to the bible thumpers. He's never opened a bible. Just be honest, Donald. You are Mr. Honesty, right? You tell it like it is, right? All politicians lie about religion, but you won't...

    Oh wait, you can't win without the evangelicals? So you have to throw them a bone, right? They won't question you. They're just suckers anyhow.

    C'mon, be honest.

    All the Trumpeteers coming to his defense in 3...2....1

    ...he said something at his last rally about constantly going to church with his family as a young kid. maybe theres some truth to it. whats the point of citing a bible verse anyway cause that shit can be used for dog chase tail.

    I would have respected him more if he just said I work on Sunday mornings. God and are just fine and my religion is nobodies business...








    ...but you can't be a Presidential candidate from any party and say that.

    Trump is as close to an atheist as you can get without admitting it. With his background of infidelity, cheating, back door deals, being an asshole to just about everyone, being racist and every other bad trait a human being can have religion would not help him anyway. Could even have a chance to be out next president. Now that would be a circus.

    I am a Christian and very familiar with Scripture, but what kind of dumb question is that? "Favorite" verses for/about WHAT? Seems like a setup.

    "None of your business" is probably the best answer.

    Forget the question. You actually believe that Trump knows one line of scripture? He's a pandering fraud.

    But you know something? I'd still rather have him than true believer Ted Cruz.

    I think everyone who was raised in a remotely Christian home probably knows some of them (as many as your average Catholic, cough cough), but I would never have thought Trump was a professing Christian in the first place.

    BTW, Obama is a professing Muslim. Does that bother you at all?

    He's about as honest as Howard, those two remind me a lot of each other. The only things they worship are money and fame and they'll do or say anything to get them.

    Of course not, I'm with the Illuminati. I know all the hidden secrets of government. Obama is just a plant for us. We are the puppet masters. Please do not share this Muslim information with anyone else. Appreciate it.

    You are Trump's target demographic. Expect your campaign pin soon.

    I agree with the OP's point...Trump is full of shit and doesn't want to offend the asshole Republicans who insist on mixing religion with politics.

    I have two suggestions (if he's asked again)

    From Ephesians - be kind to one another

    From Proverbs - don't work? Don't eat.

    That's about all we need
