Why Evangelical Support For Trump Was Inevitable
Donald Trump has nothing in common with devout Christians. A professor of religion from Princeton offers his explanation for their support of The Donald. He argues that many evangelicals have become secularized for a variety of reasons. Political power was more attractive to many of them than biblical values. Over time large numbers of evangelicals were transformed into political evangelicals. Conservative ideology and the affiliation with the Republican Party began in the Reagan era despite no apparent connection between Reagan and evangelical values.
