Actress Pauley Perrette played Abby on NCIS for more than 10 years before exiting the show earlier this year.
Many fans adored her as the quirky science-buff of the team, but many did not know that Perrette considers herself a devout Christian.
In a recent Twitter post, she appealed to the Christian nature in others while urging fans to vote against President Trump (or his party) in the midterm elections.
She wrote in her post:
"Where is Jesus when voting for someone who does the opposite of Jesus?"
"I'm a faith driven person. Jesus didn't make fun of people, say horribly mean things, spread hate about race, women, handicapped and pretty much any target that makes the hateful cheer."
"I'm happy with my vote, as a Christian, to listen to love and Jesus and vote against trump [sic] and his pals in any way. He is a mean, mean man. He's fooling you. Stop laughing with him. It's cruelty and it's wrong."

Her post also included the famous biblical quote:
"For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?" ~ Matthew 16:26
On Twitter, many responded with religious sentiments backing up Perrette.

But some of Perrette's Christian fans also spoke out against her.
They said Donald Trump was far from a paragon of virtue, but that he was better than the alternative:

It seems many Christians still feel divided by Donald Trump, a man who bears very little resemblance to the ideal Jesus sets for many in the Bible.
And yet has garnered the Evangelical Christian vote through his promises to take action against abortion and "political correctness."

This isn't the first time Perrette has expressed her faith on Twitter.
After a violent assault outside her home in 2015, she wrote about her belief in God and how prayer helped her through the ordeal.
So, tonight was awful, life changing and I'm only grateful to be alive. It's here: https://t.co/vXIT1pkVRc— Pauley Perrette (@Pauley Perrette)1447406906.0
One thing that gave her strength after she was attacked was returning to church.
So so so good to be at church today.— Pauley Perrette (@Pauley Perrette)1447638005.0

Now, Perrette's words have moved many online to speak out against President Trump.
@USATODAY Fear is their only god, and Trump has that to offer in spades.— alec pickard (@alec pickard)1541465067.0
@USATODAY They can't justify it. They just turn a blind eye and continue to enable a president that is against every Christian principal— teel (@teel)1541468959.0

Time will tell how many Christians like Pauley choose to turn against the Republican party in the 2020 Presidential elections.
It seems some are disillusioned with what's been happening within the government, but others still believe Trump is what's best for the nation.
One thing is for sure, however: if President Trump is the man in charge, Perrette will be fighting to help the Democrats win.
