Now, the flagship magazine of evangelical Christianity is blasting the Republican presidential nominee – and criticizing the Christians who vote for him.
“Enthusiasm for a candidate like Trump gives our neighbours ample reason to doubt that we believe Jesus is Lord,” Christianity Today editorial director Andy Crouch wrote Monday in an editorial. “They see that some of us are so self-interested, and so self-protective, that we will ally ourselves with someone who violates all that is sacred to us.”
Christianity Today was founded by evangelist Billy Graham in 1956 and today serves as a major voice of evangelicals, who make up about more than a quarter of the U.S. population.
The publication does not endorse candidates because it is a nonprofit organization, Crouch wrote in the editorial. But Monday’s editorial, which devoted a paragraph to criticizing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton (mostly for her use of a private email server), hammered Trump for about 1,000 words.
Well it seems that there are at least SOME Christians who recognize the tenets of their faith.
However this split among the religious right over Donald Trump have some predicting that this could be the end of their influence on politics.
I have to say that if that were to happen I would be walking around on a cloud, and it might even signal the end of the Immoral Minority.
After all when I started this blog it was to give voice to all of those who were not part of the "Moral Majority" and to point out their hypocrisy while also revealing their negative impact on politics in America.
If they suddenly are no longer a serious problem, then IM's inoculation of truth may no longer be necessary either.
Boy wouldn't THAT be something?
