While arguing the Trump administration is close to ending, Donald Trump's critics continue to blast him. In fact, the mainstream media is checking in with "Never-Trump" evangelicals to disparage his supporters.
Once-Republican Joe Scarborough of MSNBC fame recently booked a panel of Trump-haters, including David French of National Review, to talk down those evangelicals who support President Donald Trump:
French: "A subset of Christians who support Trump believe that any effort to stop him from having a second term is demonically inspired, is Satanically inspired – and it's breeding this degree of fanaticism, this degree of religious fanaticism that I think could have real danger."
Scarborough: "It's not like he's a little off on The Beatitudes. He is the antithesis of every beatitude. By the standard they use on every leader they've ever voted for, Donald Trump fails time and again – and now they're saying he's worth dying for?"
Aside from the fact he could find no evangelicals who said anything close to "Donald Trump is worth dying for," Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland says he's amazed at the vitriol and condemnation that supposed Christians have piled on fellow believers.
"I have thanked God for a man who has been pro-life, pro-Constitution, pro-religious freedom, pro-responsible immigration, a friend to Israel, [and] responsible for the suppression of terrorism around the world," McFarland tells One News Now. "He's been a man of courage."
But the Christian author and educator says the rift can be healed.
"The evangelical church will cease to be divided when preachers return to preaching the authority of Scripture – and, yes, fidelity to God and country," McFarland states.
Scarborough was elected to four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives as a Republican, representing Florida's 1st congressional district, but in 2001 resigned just a few months into his fourth term. He left the Republican Party in mid-2017.
