It seems the Church has embraced the very things it was founded to stand against.

I don’t agree with that. Theologically, 100% of the defenders of the christian church are flawed, sinful human beings, because christian theology states clearly that everyone is sinful and flawed.

Further, only the Catholics, to my knowledge, engage in this game of classifying sins and mortal and venial. So, it seems to me that the “christian view” wouldn’t be to view Trump as any worse than any other mortal human.

That’s theology. Now, think history, specifically, Constantine. Many of the historical defenders of christianity look like a rogues gallery. So it seems to me that Trump is just the latest cad in a long line of cads that the church availed themselves of.
