‘Render to God and Trump’
That was a strange pretension of a book, created by Faith and Freed Coalition owner and clinging Trump believer Ralph Reed, scheduled to come out subsequent year in a lead-up to a ubiquitous election, according to Politico.
The title, that was a anxiety to a biblical hymn “Render to Caesar a things that are Caesar’s,” has given been altered to “For God and Country: The Christian Case for Trump.” The name is different, though a summary is not.
In a book, Reed, one of Trump’s biggest Christian backers, argues that American evangelicals “have a dignified requirement to enthusiastically back” a president.
Why? Well, Reed says evangelicals have a avocation to urge a obligatory Republican personality opposite “the stridently anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, and pro-abortion bulletin of a on-going left.”
A comparison administration central was quoted in Politico explaining how Trump resonates so good with an devout base. “Part of a reason since many eremite leaders support Trump is since he is good on life, eremite freedom, judges, Israel, taxes, demur protections, fetal emanate [sic] and also since Hillary Clinton and his would-be opponents subsequent year are so awful on all of a above,” a central said.
The proceed is clearly working, with 81% of self-described white, born-again or devout Christians carrying voted for Trump in 2016, according to Pew.
Reed’s group, specifically, invested $18 million in get-out-the-vote efforts during a midterm elections and has warned regressive Christians that “pretty most everything” is on a line in 2020.
Of course, not all eremite leaders are on board:
