Pauley Perrette urged Christians to vote against Trump because 'he is opposite of Jesus'
The 48-year-old NCIS actress, Pauley Perrette, started an online debate with a recent tweet about President Trump.
Perrette shared the scripture Matthew 16:26 on Twitter, "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul." She added:
"Where is Jesus when voting for someone who does the opposite of Jesus? I'm serious. I'm a faith-driven person. Jesus didn't make fun of people, say horrible mean things, spread hate about race, women, [disabled] and pretty much any target that makes the hateful cheer."

In light of the recent midterm elections, Perrette added that as a Christian, she is happy with her vote and that she won't be supporting "Trump and his pals."
"He is a mean, mean man. He's fooling you. Stop laughing with him. It's cruelty, and it's wrong."
So weird ...I made this video in 2012... Only it SO MUCH WORSE NOW! Please vote against bigotry and misogyny:https://t.co/5JiWdM90FR— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) November 5, 2018
She received mixed reviews online. One user said it might sound as though Trump is mean, but he is "fighting back" and is a "very caring person."
I think I am going to change my party to independent out of embarrassment. Can I really do that? How? 🙏— Nanc Adele Funicello (@Nanc41056072) November 5, 2018
A Republican voter agreed with Perrette and said that "the way Trump is treating people is totally unChristian." She also thanked Perrette for her tweet.

This is not the first time Perrette spoke out about sensitive issues. Earlier this year, she also opened up about sexual abuse and pedophilia.
Perrette wanted to know if there will ever be a time when everybody can agree that assault and pedophilia are wrong.
Will there EVER BE A TIME when we agree Sexual Assault and Pedophilia is WRONG? This is not partisan It’s HUMAN!— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) December 5, 2017
All sides HAVE BEEN GUILTY
While she received mostly positive feedback and support, several Twitter users made her question her faith in humanity.
In light of the responses she received, Perrette took to Twitter again, saying the negative feedback simple proved her point.
So sadly, most replies to my last tweet have confirmed again my almost total lack of faith in humanity. This is not my planet. I await heaven. #ThinkHumanityNotPolitics— Pauley Perrette (@PauleyP) December 5, 2017
I am wounded by who we have become.
She used the hashtag "think humanity, not politics," and said that she is wounded by "who we have become." It saddened her that people would try to find an excuse for assault and pedophilia.
Perrette also took to Twitter when the Harvey Weinstein saga started, and she noted that women, in general, were not shocked by what was happening.
The actress was raped when she was 15 years old. Over the years, she has used her fame and her social following to raise awareness about sexual abuse and violence.
