At one evangelical church, congregants dismiss the Christianity Today editorial — if they’ve read it at all

The Rev. Franklin Graham, a staunch Trump supporter and the son of the magazine’s founder, the late Rev. Billy Graham, leaped to Trump’s defense, telling The Washington Post that “(my father) would’ve been very embarrassed that the magazine he started would call for something like this when there are no crimes committed.”

Less than 48 hours later, Trump’s reelection campaign announced a new “Evangelicals for Trump” coalition, launching at a Miami rally in early January.

But here in suburban Milwaukee, where Trump narrowly edged out Clinton in 2016 and where it is crucial he maintain or build support heading into 2020, there was no indication the viral editorial had changed hearts or minds — or even been read at all.

After Sunday services, at least a half-dozen Elmbrook churchgoers said they didn’t know anything about the Christianity Today piece. A few others said they had heard about it but hadn’t actually read it.

Even those who knew what it said were quick to dismiss its significance.

3. These people care more about what Hannity and Trump says than what Jesus said

Damn shame. I'd like to see them point their finger the next time a democrat cheats on his wife or does something else " morally" wrong

5. "than what Jesus said"

Would believe Trump over Jesus for credibility...

About 2:55 on the timeline.

"Let me tell you," he continued. "If Jesus Christ gets down off the cross and told me Trump is with Russia, I would tell him, hold on a second, I need to check with the president if it is true. That is how confident I feel in the president."
