The last few days I've noticed a rising amount of dismay on the Internet at statements made by evangelical leaders.
"Because Abraham lied, Moses disobeyed God and David committed adultery, Trump should get a pass on his personal behavior."
"My personal support for Donald Trump has never been based upon shared values."
"Voters of faith are voting on issues like who will protect unborn life, defend religious freedom, create jobs, and oppose the Iran nuclear deal. Ten year old tapes of private conversation rank low on their hierarchy of concerns."
Obviously many in this country are unfamiliar with the evangelical world. I've read evangelicalism among the millennials is different. I hope that is true. You would be wise to consider the following things about evangelicals.
2) self righteous
3) attracted to any message of doom
4) attracted to individuals delivering a message of doom
5) warlike in spirit
People who believe they are on a mission for God are not kind people. The loudest among them become the day's charlatans.
Evangelicals tend to collect around charlatans and follow them off a cliff.
They tend not to think for themselves. Tend to stick with whatever their leaders tell them. Reluctant to venture out to information not approved their leaders.
Be not surprised when the evangelical Christian world sticks with Donald Trump and follows him right off the cliff.
When that happens they will get up, shake their heads a bit, dust off their feathers, climb back up to where they started, and do it again with the next charlatan that comes along. They never learn.
