When some Evangelical leaders got together, the knives came out against Trump. Some walked out over it.
So much for disagreeing without becoming disagreeable.
It seems that Stormy Daniels story has gotten some traction in their circles.
The two-day gathering involved a group of faith leaders and was billed as a discussion of the evangelical movement in light of Trump’s presidency. But it became more than that.
Two sources with intimate knowledge of the meeting say the first day turned into a lot of “one-sided venting” against President Trump and the majority of evangelicals who voted for him.
Both sources confirm that the issue of sin came up in discussing how evangelicals could vote for Trump. “The conversations were difficult,” according to one source who attended both days of the meeting. “There was a lament.”
To be fair, none of these leaders were people with actual ‘inner-circle’ connections to the President.
So, should Christians dump Trump if he boinked Stormy?
Doug Giles has some thoughts on this:

The latest Pew Research Center poll shows that Trump’s approval rating among evangelicals is still at 78 percent, despite recent reports about his alleged extramarital affairs. Trump won the presidency with 81 percent support among the bloc.
Brody said that evangelicals love that the president “does what he says,” like officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and working to move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.
Aside from the noted absence of those who are more open in their support of Trump, like Franklin Graham, for instance, is there any other information that gives insight into the nature of this meeting? Actually, yes. From the same article:
Rather, this group of evangelicals consisted of many who hold more moderate or progressive views on certain public policy issues.
Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas is part of the president’s evangelical advisory group and says this gathering is of no consequence.
“It’s a meeting that will have very little impact on evangelicalism as a whole,” Jeffress told CBN News. “Many of them are sincere but they are having a hard time understanding that they have little impact on evangelicalism.”
Or, to put it another way:
"As the country has become more polarized the church has become more polarized, and that’s because the church is not different enough from America or from modernity. There’s now a red and blue evangelicalism." ~ @timkellernyc at evangelical consultation

Red and Blue Evangelicalism? It should never devolve to that. But that does seem to be how things are shaking out, doesn’t it?

Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:
And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:
Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
