And the country, don’t forget he is also damaging the country.

A new book consisting of essays by 30 evangelical Christians of different political and professional stripes is calling on white evangelicals to rethink their support for President Donald Trump in 2020 and warns the president is damaging the broader culture’s perception of evangelical Christianity.
The new book, The Spiritual Danger of Donald Trump: 30 Evangelical Christians on Justice, Truth, and Moral Integrity, was released last Monday by Wipf and Stock Publishers.
“Our plea is to white evangelicals to please take another look and ask, ‘Does this person measure up to biblical norms?’” Ron Sider, founder of Evangelicals for Social Action, told The Christian Post. “We are not telling you what to include. But please prayerfully think about that. Even if you think the book will make you mad, given the title, I challenge you to read it and decide for yourself if there are any valid points that we are making there.”
It is hard to take evangelicals seriously when they suggest topics like “truth” and “morality” but I do applaud the effort by these folks to convince their brethren that Trump is not who they have convinced themselves he is.
The easiest demographic to recruit to your side are the religious fundamentalists because they value faith over facts and are easily manipulated by people who pretend to believe as they do and use the right catchphrases.
This was the gift that Sarah Palin gave Trump when she endorsed him, and he has kept them in his hip pocket ever since.
I don’t know if anybody will respond to this book the way the authors are hoping, but if they do perhaps they will also consider writing one for the Republicans as well.
