The religious fanatics that support Trump

Did you know, 81 percent of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election? That was more than voted for George W. Bush. And they did it with the urging of their leaders who heretofore have bragged about...
"superior virtue, especially in matters of sex and marriage and parenting and social propriety. They’ve blasted premarital and extramarital sex, LGBTQ people, divorce, pornography, sex work, foul language, crude behavior, and not being a Christian—as they define “Christian”—blaming these things for everything from 9/11 to Hurricane Katrina."
Since all that went out the window when these uninformed pathetic souls put their Bibles behind T-rump, the public has had a laugh fest over how this group could be so stupid. And still is. But they never got tired of berating Bill Clinton for his infidelities, which, of course, indicates these people are hopeless Republicans. Michael Gerson, former Bush speechwriter, wrote in the Atlantic...
“The moral convictions of many evangelical leaders have become a function of their partisan identification. This is not mere gullibility; it is utter corruption.”
Gerson also believes evangelicals have done some good things and still do but can't really explain how they hit the bottom of the barrel with Donald Trump. What is even more troubling to me is the evangelical attitude toward women; they think women should unequivocally obey their husbands. "Southern Baptists insist that wives submit to their husbands and ban women speaking from the pulpit or having religious authority over men." Whew! Sell that to the feminists of today. It is ludicrous, of course, and clearly points out why evangelicals are regularly held in contempt.

Although Gerson doesn't believe most evangelicals are racist, he writes...
“But every strong Trump supporter has decided that racism is not a moral disqualification in the president of the United States. And that is something more than a political compromise. It is a revelation of moral priorities.”
And that should not be acceptable!
