The Mindset of Republican White Evangelical Protestants
Over the past few years I’ve read perhaps a dozen purported explanations of why evangelical protestants overwhelmingly support Trump, but I still find it mystifying. Yesterday I read that 99% of Republican white evangelical Protestants oppose Trump being impeached and removed from office. That’s a preponderance eyebrow-raisingly close to unanimity.
Trump’s behavior is approximately 100% of the antithesis of Jesus’s teachings. His conduct overwhelmingly meets the Constitutional criteria for impeachment and removal. The Devil must be as powerful and dangerous as some preachers warn us, capturing so many righteous minds.
