Evangelicals and Trump

There are three things, apparently, that Evangelicals want and are getting from Trump that leads them to excuse any level of corruption and criminality coming from the Oval Office: conservative judges, a concerted attack on women’s reproductive freedom, and moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Rural white Evangelicals with limited education also like Trump’s harsh immigration policies. “Make America White Again” sounds just fine to them.

We’ve all struggled with having to work with people whose personal and professional traits we find challenging. Sometimes we go ahead, and sometimes we demur, saying that the compromises required are simply too much. My problem with the Evangelical community is that Trump doesn’t seem to present any struggle for them.

Makes me wonder what version of the Bible they are reading.
