Would you accept a serial adulterer and an unindicted co conspirator as your "moral leader"?

    Evangelical leaders say Trump's Stormy affair is OK

    Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council said, "We kind of gave him an, 'All right, you get a mulligan. You get a do-over here.'"

    Robert Jeffress, pastor of the powerful First Baptist Church in Dallas, assured Fox News that "Evangelicals know they are not compromising their beliefs in order to support this great president."

    Franklin Graham affirmed that "while he is not President Perfect," Trump does have "a concern for Christian values."

    Jerry Falwell Jr. said, "We all need Christ's forgiveness, and that's why evangelicals are so quick to forgive Donald Trump when he asked for forgiveness for things that happened 10, 15 years ago."

    ------------------------------

    80% of evangelical supported Roy Moore.

    Falwell said Trump comments about Nazi's at Charlottesville were "bold and truthful".

    When Trump referred to Haiti and Africa as sh!tholes, Jeffress said Trump was on target in his sentiment.

    But not all evangelicas are so understanding. There is an exodus of African Americans leaving white evangelical churches.

    Why Are People of Color Leaving White Evangelical Churches?

    And some other evangelicals have a completely different take. This from evangelical Michael Gerson:

    Michael Gerson of The Atlantic, an evangelical conservative, believes the term 'evangelical' has been defiled, and that party identity has obliterated moral conviction.

    "This is not mere gullibility; it is utter corruption," he wrote. "Blinded by political tribalism and hatred for their political opponents, these leaders can't see how they are undermining the causes to which they once dedicated their lives."

    ---------------------

    Is Trump bringing great damage to the evangelical movement?

    Well let's look at that. JFK slept with many. One was preported to have been Marilyn Monroe. Bobby Kennedy was also supposed to have slept with her. Eisenhower was supposed to of had an affair with his chauffeur. Bill Clinton not only had sex IN the Oval Office but with numerous others. His wife (a so called woman's rights activist) called them whores and other things that I will not repeat. I know of a number of others but I think it would be safe to say that almost any president or congress person has had a trist or two.

    Let's not forget one of the women who called out Harvey Winstein is now supposed to have had a trist of her own. So kind of like the pot calling the kettle black.

    As far as people of color leaving white church's I would say it is the same reason that they want a separate space in college. They want to segregate themselves.

    As to the unindicted co conspirator you might need to tighten down the tinfoil hat.

    True. However the poster asked as an overall question. My response was to that.
