    Seriously??? You’re upset with the results of the election and you’re accusing your CHURCH of being the problem? And the tiny (in terms of number electoral votes) state of Utah? You infer that your fellow church members are moronic sycophants who aren’t living their Christian beliefs because they didn’t vote the way you did? Just for the record, I’m not a Trump fan either. But WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE. The entire country was divided in half by this election. Frankly, I’m shocked and amazed you believe you are following your Christian beliefs by supporting Hillary Clinton, a pathological liar with a corrupt past who, in addition to her many other dishonest activities, publically harassed and lied about the women who accused her cheating husband of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

    Sorry Amy, your assertion that the democratic party would, for instance, reduce the fears of immigrants is hypocrisy. Between 2009 and 2015 the Obama administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who “self-deported” or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection More immigrants have been deported by the Obama administration that by ANY other President.

    Trump has already stated that he isn’t interested in repealing the gay marriage decision by the Supreme Court. Nor does he, or congress, have the power to do so.

    Were Trump’s comments about women to Billy Bush back in 2005 disgusting? Yeah, they were. So was Bill Clinton receiving oral sex in the Oval Office from his intern. And his sexual assault on Paula Jones and other women. But Hillary publically attacked and lied about Paula Jones in order to protect her guilty husband. Tell me how that is any less an example of misogyny (a word democrats seem comfortable using to label anyone who doesn’t agree with their choice for President).

    You’re upset because someone you despise was elected President. But what you don’t get is, just as many Americans despise Hillary Clinton. Obviously. And for similar reasons. So PLEASE lay off the hypocrisy and stop denigrating your fellow church members for voting their conscience. The entire country is divided, and you criticizing and ridiculing your own neighbors isn’t going to encourage unity. Even liberal Hollywood is divided, as demonstrated in this short video: http://www.msn.com/en-us/video/other/hollywood-reacts-to-donald-trumps-presidency-win/vi-AAk6a8v?ocid=spartandhp

    Personally, I align most closely with the statement by Ben Stiller: “Now it is time to move forward and hope that our country can come together.”
