Christian Post reporter Napp Nazworth has written a scathing editorial shaming his fellow evangelical Christians for their worshipful treatment of President Donald Trump.
In his editorial, Nazworth writes that evangelicals who passionately believe in sexual morality and who oppose abortion are trading short-term political clout for long-term damage to their cause by embracing Trump, a man “whose values are antithetical to all the Church holds dear.”
He is particularly disdainful of evangelicals who believe that embracing Trump is the only way they can overturn Roe v. Wade and outlaw abortion in the United States. He also slams evangelicals for placing a high priority on restoring sexual morality in America while turning a blind eye to Trump’s multiple infidelities and boasts of sexually assaulting women.
“Many of us are supporting a misogynist who bragged about assaulting women, and paid hush money to a porn star and a Playboy bunny,” he writes. “Why should anyone trust us?”
The bottom line, Nazworth argues, is that evangelicals are making their professed beliefs in traditional morality look like a cynical scam by throwing their weight behind someone who is so obviously and proudly amoral.
“If you use double standards, you are harming your ability to convince others,” he writes. “The reasoning of hypocrites isn’t trusted.”
