Evangelical Christians: In Trump We Trust?

We live in crazy times, & what may appear as a contradiction to many—ethical, religious evangelical Christians supporting an unethical, amoral President—all of a sudden makes (twisted) sense.

Evangelicals did not support Mr. Trump in spite of who he is. They supported him because of who he is, and because of who they are. He is their protector, the bully who is on their side, the one who offered safety amid their fears that their country as they know it, and their place in it, is changing, and changing quickly. White straight married couples with children who go to church regularly are no longer the American mainstream. An entire way of life, one in which their values were dominant, could be headed for extinction. And Mr. Trump offered to restore them to power, as though they have not been in power all along.

What is alarming is that Evangelical Christians are supposed to place their trust in God himself for protection throughout politically chaotic times, & not an earthly sovereign.

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

King David (Psalms 118:8-9)

By aligning themselves politically with a grossly corrupt leader who views the Ten Commandments as a bucket list, Evangelical Christians have sacrificed their moral superiority for a few more years (at best) of political power.
