Melissa Joan Hart held that while Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may have the backing of many evangelical leaders, she doesn’t believe he is the “Christian” choice.
“All those people who want to say he is the Christian choice, but I don’t think he is for me. That one is the one that really gets me because as a Christian woman, I don’t think my vote lies with Trump. I think the only people who are saying that are people who are saying he’s pro-life, which I don’t even necessarily believe he is.”
“I just want to feel good about myself when I walk out of the voting place in November. I just want to feel good about myself and not like I’m holding my breath and thinking, ‘did I do the wrong thing?’ I want to walk out of there with my head held high.”
Instead of backing Trump or Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the actress said she will cast her vote for the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson.
“To me, true conservative ideals of just less government interference in our lives, he really stood for that,” Hart said of the former New Mexico governor. “He has a good record, he has good temperament and he is someone who will listen to reason and make good decisions.”
Behind Trump’s 39.7 percent and Clinton’s 44.7 percent is Johnson currently, registering at 6.7 percent in the Real Clear Politics polling average.
“Whether we support Mr. Trump’s political opponent is not the question here. Hillary Clinton is both supported and distrusted by a variety of Christian voters,” it reads.
