White Evangelicals Serve The GOP Not GOD!

Interesting Read--Don't shoot the messenger. I'm just delivering the message.

When Obama was in office, only 30% of white evangelicals would forgive a
president's immoral behavior. Now it's 72%. I wonder what changed? Oh yeah, the President is white now.

In the Trump era, Republicans have been revising their views on right and wrong.

In 2011, the Public Religion Research Institute asked voters if
an elected official who commits an immoral act in their personal life can still behave ethically and fulfill their duties in their public and professional life.

White evangelical Protestants were the least forgiving. Sixty-one percent said such a politician could not “behave ethically,” twice the 30 percent who felt that such a politician could manage it.

Every other religious group was less judgmental. Catholics, 49 no, 42, yes; white mainline Protestants: 44 percent no, 38 percent yes; the religiously unaffiliated, 26 no, 63 yes.

Are the moral convictions of white evangelical Protestants writ in stone? Apparently not.

Five years later, in October, 2016, P.R.R.I. asked the same question. The percentage of white evangelical Protestants who said that a politician who commits an immoral act in their personal life could still behave ethically shot up from 30 to 72 percent. The percentage saying such a politician could not serve ethically plunged from 63 to 20 percent.

“In a head-spinning reversal,” Robert P. Jones, the C.E.O. of P.R.R.I., wrote in the July 2017 issue of The Atlantic,

white evangelicals went from being the least likely to the most likely group to agree that a candidate’s personal immorality has no bearing on his performance in public office.

You have once again showed your racist ways and ignorance. Read the article again. The poll was done in Oct 2016. Before the election. So a white president has nothing to with it.

@gacpl--I didn't write the article so the person you should refer to as ignorant is the person that wrote it. 2nd. the article is above your head--I credit that to limited critical thinking skills. The polls were conducted during the 2016 elections when trump was a candidate....the views changed because of his baggage and him being the GOP nominee. this is my last time responding to you. I don't entertain haters and people with limited vocabularies that only result in personal attacks & name calling.

You may not have wrote it. But you chose to share it. And that speaks volumes. Trump may have been a canidite. But he was not expected to win. So your point is null

Careful @gacpl, PoliticsNation is the only brave Democrat that attempts to defend her party. It's a crying shame that Democrats can use Sound Off to voice their opinions and are scared to take criticism on a blog site as small as this one.☺
