ONE OF THE MOST obscene spectacles of the Trump
presidency has been that of evangelical pastors
crowding round him to give him their blessing. But
this is only a very public acknowledgement that he
is very much their man.
The 81 percent of white evangelical
Christians, who made up a third of those voting for
him, effectively put him in the White House. Not
only did a large majority of evangelical Christians
vote for him, but tens of thousands of them actively
campaigned for him.
How did they come to support an individual
as saturated in sin as Trump? A bullying sexual
predator and misogynist, a crook and a conman, a
racist and an authoritarian, a compulsive liar,
someone both profoundly ignorant and at the same
time convinced of his own genius, a man who “has no knowledge of the Bible at all. It might as
well be a paper brick to him”.
In this book, John Newsinger sets out to answer how the Christian right came to have
such a powerful voice in US politics and how was it that they came to support someone like
Donald Trump?
