  • NO TIME FOR FOX: Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter at work for Habitat for Humanity. Somehow, so-called evangelicals find people like Donald Trump more to their political liking.
Several have commented on the support for Donald Trump among evangelical voters given his less-than-pristine moral resume. The session last week with Pat Robertson prompted much of this.

A coincidental happening was a bit of heat exhaustion for Jimmy Carter, a practicing Christian, while working on a Habitat for Humanity project. Rehydrated, the 92-year-old went back to work for the less fortunate. Trump watched Fox.

Anyway, Times columnist Timothy Egan has used the subject to rip Trump's so-called Christian enablers. His closing bears repeating:

But these church ladies and their pastors dish up a special kind of moral quackery. Trump trashes the dignity of his office on a daily basis. He lies and lies and lies, and then lies about his lies. He would take vital care away from the most vulnerable among us. And the response from these representatives of righteousness?

“President Trump is the greatest thing that’s happened to this country,” said Luther Strange, who was appointed to the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. “I consider it a biblical miracle that he’s here.”

A true miracle would be for one of the enablers among the 81 percent of white evangelicals who gave their vote to Trump to follow their conscience, or at least the Scriptures they profess guide them.
Amen.
