A longtime Christian leader is urging American voters to choose the lesser evil, Donald Trump, on Election Day.
"For me," says Dr. Richard Land, "it's about Mrs. Clinton being the most dangerous person in the White House in terms of our freedoms and our liberties."
Land, currently president at Southern Evangelical Seminary in North Carolina, labored for years in political and cultural battles when he led the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission for the Southern Baptist Convention.
He tells OneNewsNow he has little joy in voting for Donald Trump as president. But he plans to do so, he says, because of the alternative.
"This election is a classic case of the lesser evil versus the greater evil," he observes. "When you're presented in a fallen sinful world with that choice, if you don't choose the lesser evil, you become morally culpable to prevail."
Such a pessimistic view of the presidential election mirrors the opinions of other Christian leaders.
Other prominent leaders, such as Dr. Michael Brown, state he has not endorsed Trump nor lavished him with praise, and he shares the concerns of prominent "Never Trumpers" who oppose him for political and religious reasons.
But the most effective way to defeat Clinton, Brown has written, is to vote for Trump.
Stating first that he refused to defend Donald Trump's behavior, Dr. James Dobson stated recently he is "more concerned about America's future than Donald Trump's past."
OneNewsNow has reported in recent days that some argue the Republican Party platform, dominated by conservative ideals and beliefs, deserves support since it lays out the party's stance.
Envisioning a future President Trump in the White House next year, Land has low expectations for his presidency.
"But Mrs. Clinton," he warns, "could be a fatal and lethal one."
