Losing the battle but winning the (holy) war

Evangelicals think they have no choice but to vote for Trump even those who despise his moral bankruptcy. Some see not voting as a vote cast for a Democratic president who is sure to win without evangelical support. Here’s another option they may have never considered:

Vote for the democrat as a deliberate act of moral protest against Donald Trump.

Imagine how shocked America and the rest of the world would be if evangelicals banded together to oppose Trump for his egregious behavior. Sure it may mean putting a Democrat in office but think of how much of that lost moral high ground they could reclaim. They would regain some much needed respect. People might begin to take them seriously again. But most of all, in four years they might be able to back someone who represents their ideals and not one who curries to them purely for political gain. Think about it evangelicals. Your “brand” is evaporating before your eyes and you may never have the opportunity to save it again. Is this the hill you really want to die on? Are you willing to drag the name of Jesus through the mud for Donald Trump?

I was born in London, Ontario, Canada. I attended Capernwray Bible School (England and Austria), Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, Il.), the University of Western Ontario (London, Ontario), London Baptist Seminary (London, Ontario) and Dallas Theological Seminary (Dallas, Tx.). I have had several temporary jobs over the years but my focus has alway been on an investigative study of the Bible, Jesus and Christianity particularly evangelicalism. Currently editing a massive literary undertaking deconstructing Christianity and Jesus.
