“Trump’s past political stances (he once supported the right to partial-birth abortion), his character (he has bragged about sexually assaulting women), and even his language (he introduced the words pussy and shithole into presidential discourse) would more naturally lead religious conservatives toward exorcism than alliance. This is a man who has cruelly publicized his infidelities, made disturbing sexual comments about his elder daughter, and boasted about the size of his penis on the debate stage. His lawyer reportedly arranged a $130,000 payment to a porn star to dissuade her from disclosing an alleged affair.” And yet, Trump has maintained a remarkable level of support from evangelicals. And not just when compared to other flawed sinners. Trump “won four-fifths of the votes of white evangelical Christians. This was a higher level of support than either Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush, an outspoken evangelical himself, ever received.” The Atlantic’s Michael Gerson takes a look at how evangelicals came to support the least traditionally religious president in living memory (he may have been the least traditionally religious reality TV star as well): The Last Temptation.
