Evangelicals in the Trump Era

Let’s be clear: The Evangelical church has lost all credibility as it stands by the Pussy-Grabber-In-Chief. He is cruel to the most vulnerable among us, he paid off a porn star to keep her quiet about the affair he had with her while his wife was pregnant, he is a daily liar, he equates white supremacists and those who protest them, and he openly bragged about that pussy grabbing thing.

Yes despite his sin, those who claim to be “Bible-believing Christians,” those believers who claim that every word in their religious book is God-breathed, inerrant and perfect, dismiss entire passages in which Jesus Christ condemned the Pharisees, the religious leaders of their day, for choosing political power over piety.

If the right-wing church doesn’t stand up and loudly and unequivocally condemn their association with this man — and it is not doing that but is instead standing with him — then what they think about both the greater culture and eternal salvation is irrelevant, as they don’t even speak for decent human beings, much less God.
