    Still hard to believe that this ignorant, egotistical, immoral, selfish, pathetic, needy, disgraceful human being has become President of the United States. And even harder to believe that so many “so called Christians” support him still. They have lost all credibility and have shown themselves to have no moral compass.

    Not really.

    Politically speaking, I think its a mistake to recognize American Christians as a general faith-based community who think purely along the lines of theology. What they are in reality is a collection of voters who are motivated by social and cultural convictions more than religious principles.

    For example, 4 out 5 white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump and cited immigration and the economy as more important factors in supporting Trump than abortion. There are a ton of post-election pieces that have examined the Christian vote, and the numbers basically tell a similar story: white Christians are drawn to political figures more by common social priorities than the tenets of their faith. While many may use Christianity to justify their political opinions, those arguments quickly give way to beliefs that aren’t ground in any spiritual reasoning.

    So, Trump’s ongoing support from white Christians isn’t surprising to me because his presidency primarily speaks to the cultural and social issues that are most important to this group. He has honed in on what lays at the core of white American Christian identity and the fear of their fading dominance over government in America.

      Thanks Charlie, that analysis makes sense of the phenomenon.
