Under the guise of sharing a Letter to the Editor, Chuck Todd attempts to influence Christian voters via his bully pulpit on Meet The Press. This is typical behavior for those on the political left. Instead of assailing President Trump on his record on the economy or foreign policy, they use personal attacks against his largest voter block, Christians.
According to Todd, Noah’s Ark is a fairy tale. The letter he read on air was published in the Lexington Herald Leader and was obviously penned by a leftist. Todd used the letter in an attempt to delegitimize support for President Trump.
“This Sunday, alternative facts. The assault on truth (…) This morning, Meet the Press takes an in-depth look at our post-truth society and how a changing media landscape has created chaos out of order,” ~ Chuck Todd
Good journalistic practice would have dictated that Todd read a letter supporting the president or even better to leave it out of his broadcast. Todd would never have published a similar letter that attacked Islam.
Obviously Todd isn’t a Christian and has no compunction about mocking people of faith; but what about his viewers? How many Democrats claim Christianity? Quite a few, but not many Democrats have a Biblical Worldview. According to Barna Group Research from 10 years ago there are “varying numbers of Americans who embrace the different aspects of biblical worldview thinking.” The survey found that:
- One-third of all adults (34%) believe that moral truth is absolute and unaffected by the circumstances. Slightly less than half of the born again adults (46%) believe in absolute moral truth.
- Half of all adults firmly believe that the Bible is accurate in all the principles it teaches. That proportion includes the four-fifths of born again adults (79%) who concur.
- Just one-quarter of adults (27%) are convinced that Satan is a real force. Even a minority of born again adults (40%) adopt that perspective.
- Similarly, only one-quarter of adults (28%) believe that it is impossible for someone to earn their way into Heaven through good behavior. Not quite half of all born again Christians (47%) strongly reject the notion of earning salvation through their deeds.
- A minority of American adults (40%) are persuaded that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life while He was on earth. Slightly less than two-thirds of the born again segment (62%) strongly believes that He was sinless.
- Seven out of ten adults (70%) say that God is the all-powerful, all-knowing creator of the universe who still rules it today. That includes the 9 % of born again adults who hold that conviction.
It is true that the number of non-religious people in America is on the rise. But over 70 percent of Americans consider themselves Christians. Perhaps it’s time to inform Chuck Todd.

This comes on the heels of Christianity Today publishing an op-ed calling for the president’s removal from office for the sin of beating Hillary Clinton in 2016. Make no mistake about it, this is a concerted effort to tarnish President Trump’s image with Christians. It’s the carrot and stick approach, mostly the stick.
No unbeliever is going to bully me into voting for pro-abortion Democrats running for president.
