Jim Daly, the president of evangelical Christian advocacy organization Focus on the Family, is not happy with some of his fellow evangelicals’ embrace of President Donald Trump.
In an interview with the New York Times, the Focus on the Family boss says that he’s concerned that evangelicals are overlooking Trump’s multiple infidelities, not to mention the multiple women who have accused him of sexual harassment.
“Now even the Christian culture is O.K. with it,” Daly said. “That’s the sadness… the next time a Democrat in the presidency has a moral failure, who’s going to be able to say anything?”
Many of the evangelical leaders interviewed by the Times, however, expressed no such reservations about Trump.
Ralph Reed, the chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, tells the Times that “I don’t know of anyone who has worked the evangelical community more effectively than Donald Trump.”
Penny Young Nance, the president of Concerned Women for America, tells the Times that Trump cheating on his wife with adult film stars and allegedly harassing multiple women are no one else’s business.
“His family can talk to him about issues of character,” she said.
