Evangelical Christians and Trump
To Evangelical Christians, character matters, but not if a politician has an "R" (even a recent "R") after his or her name. Trump recently said his supporters would vote for him even if he stood in the middle of the street and killed someone.
Apparently he knows what he's talking about because the Christian Evangelicals who say they care about the sanctity of marriage and family values are supporting a man who is a self-admitted adulterer, an egregious liar, a mocker of people with disabilities, anti-woman, and a nasty, vengeful tweeting boor.
Those Evangelical Christians who see nothing wrong with Trump are the same Christians who have vilified a true family man, a faithful husband and loving father -- Barack Hussein Obama. So who wouldn't wonder about their sincerity toward their so-called Christian morality and "family values."
They seem to have left that all behind for political expedience. I call that moral cowardice.
