Trump and Evangelicals with Mark Galli

Description

Why do white evangelical Christians support President Trump? They delivered him 81% of their votes on election day and consistently give him higher favorability ratings than any other voting bloc. As former Christianity Today editor-in-chief Mark Galli puts it, white evangelicals elected Trump to be their champion. So these were the exact people Galli hoped were listening when he published a stunning op-ed titled “Trump Should Be Removed from Office”. It was a daring departure for the signature publication of white evangelicals and the piece immediately attracted huge amounts of attention. For Galli, the President had crossed a line and he felt it was time his community reckoned with that fact. But will they?

How do you measure that? We measure you by your actions which have supported the worst version of the United States of America. Blaming troubled immigrants for struggling under a wealthy-for-the-few political parties policies is decidedly unchristian. It makes me wonder what version of Jesus these people have in their hearts? It must be the version that looks just like them. If anything, everyone I know and everyone they know has lost all respect for Evangelicals. All.

I was so happy there was that editorial. Aside of it...Chris gets to remind Mark that Jesus would've helped the homeless. Laughing all along of the role reversal obserdity. Mark gets to talk about Mexicans in racist ways because someone of course should identify nationality when they think others took their jobs, and it's OK as long as they explain their anger reason. Can't even... But the wall is bad. Yes, this helps understanding of a whole lot..
