Are Evangelicals Forgetting Their Values?

ABC’s network political analyst Matthew Dowd claimed that due to the recent allegations by Stormy Daniels, evangelical Trump supporters were “willing to sacrifice those values in order to get culture things.”

Dowd claimed, “The moral compass of many in the evangelical community for some reason goes into this magnetic field of Donald Trump and loses their way. This is a group of people that claim to speak for family values that claim to say character matters that claim to say we need a moral compass in the country and then they have a president of the United States who is completely antithetical to every one of those. And I understand the culture war part of this which is what they want, but in the end in my faith, which I’m a Christian is that we’re judged individually and this is a leader who every aspect of his personal life is against that.”

“They’re willing to sacrifice those values in order to get culture things.”

    When you’re faced with a democrat party that embraces policies antithetical to American Values, then you take the better of bad choices. Donald Trump is our president – get over it. (By the way, the Trump admin’s policies are right down the middle for American Values)

  • Robert Pekarik

    Amazing!!! Being preached to by immoral and perverted liberal progressives who set and follow the low standards for American virtue and patriotism.

    As other people have said, we did not vote for a pastor. There was not much choice during the election. The affair was years ago and not in the oval office.

    • Tony Barreda

      Not a Pastor, sheesh, that’s an understatement. Trump broke his vows to his 3 wives, how much does it say about his oath of office. Could he have contracted sexually transmitted desease from one of a dozen women? I would demand a medical exam, maybe that’s what makes him act irrationally.

  • Jeannie

    Maureen Dowd along with the rest of the lame stream media have never had values to begin with. So what do they know? They wanted a corrupt, murdering, evil liar and they did not win so all they know how to do is attack. If there was a one night stand, with a slut, many years ago, it was not in the oval office…. We Evangelicals are supporting the VALUES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. God, Country and family. That is what we stand for.

    Donald Trump may be silly and ignorant, but he’s got guts, and guts is enough…

    As an Evangelical, I believe each individual must deal with their own sins. It is not up to me to judge or condemn them. That is God’s job. After all, we elected a President, not an evangelist!! I believe God raised him up for times such as these.

    • ruthecarney

      How about all of the saints, so sanctimonious and self righteous liberals that think nothing of abortion and a host of other evils.

      • RW Marno

        Guess who else has supported abortion and passed the bill that continued support of that so called liberal abortion clinic that actually isn’t, Planned Parenthood. He just signed a bill to refund them. LOL. Anyhow the idea Christians support other ideals of Trump that superceded his personal failures is so hypocritical it defies any logic. As a true Christian that believes in sticking to the meaning “Christ Like”, I am appalled by those so called Christians who drop the Lords teachings and morals for persona gains. Your sellout phonies. He lied about so much that is not getting done. Trump promised that Obama Care would be gone on day 1. Well he did with that as he has with the wall and many promises because he just doesn’t know how to even initiate those kinds of repeals and showed his inability to do any deals. The master deal maker has failed miserably on the promises he would attain because only he can do deals better than anyone? It’s time we true Christians stand up for morals and put them firsty over personal benefit. Trump has lived and still is living a critically immoral life in many ways. Not just the sex but the hiding and the lies and the “hush” money that he has paid out to now we find out numerous women. His treatment of women is no secret and he is proud of it. He brags about his conquering of women because he is a celebrity. He attests to his immorals as badges of accomplishments. People think of how idiotic your type (Trump supporter) is making most of you appear to the majority of Americans. Its gotten really piytiful with new stories and allegations almost daily now. Time to wake up and realize what kind of person he truly is. A showman and a con!

        • Curt Lamoureux

          RW Perhaps a showman and a con, but not Muslim!!”

  • Footballfan_48

    The Democrats and Left need to worry about themselves when it comes to doing things that are good in Gods eyes because they fail ALOT in things that they support and DO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • johnnywoods

    Trump was elected POTUS not pope. I do not know of any past POTUS in my lifetime who`s feet were not “made of clay”. Even Martin Luther was said to have stated that he would rather be governed by a competent Turk than an incompetent Christian. Trump is our “competent Turk”.

  • shetland pony1

    Conservatives and Liberals are all the same. Everyone trying to put spin on everything the POTUS has done or not. The fact is that both parties are corrupt Democratic and Republican. If you are a so called Christian then you can’t rank “SIN”. Both Clinton and Trump are evil and corrupt. Some might say l voted for the less of two evils. Well with that in mind you voted for evil so that make you evil. You are condoning the behavior of the individual you voted for whether Clinton or Trump. However, l agree that God do put individual(s) in position(s). That why we should always pray for our leaders and that included Obama. How many of our so called religious leaders truly prayed for Obama who l didn’t care for. Everyone want to blame someone else so stop being hypocrites. No POTUS is better than the other especially when we have an incompetent “CONGRESS”.

  • Bill

    I am an evangelical & voted for Trump. I have not sacrificed my values. There are two words that explain how I voted…Hillary Clinton. Under other circumstances I would not have voted for a candidate whose personal morality can be questioned the way Trump’s can be. But there is no question that Hillary Clinton is corrupt, morally vapid & only seeking to advance herself. Her conduct since the election confirms that to be true. Hence I voted for Trump & expect to again since I don’t believe the democrats will nominate a candidate any better than Hillary Clinton was.

    ” I did try and fuck her. She was married.
    And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping.—I moved on her like a bitch.
    “I just start kissing them… I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
    Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”

  • madmemere

    Evidently Matt Dowd doesn’t understand “Judge not, lest ye be judged” – – especially if NO PROOF of actual wrongdoing has been presented; that amounts to “character assassination” by slander. I suspect most Evangelicals (and most people) are intelligent enough to NOT pass judgement until and unless proof has been produced.

  • you don’t get it mathew dowd. hillary was an anti christ. either her or him & trump so far has protected religious freedom, protected innocent life. hillary would do neither. so shut up

    • RW Marno

      Trump has protected what???? He just signed the bill refunding Planned Parenthood. Remember the organization that Conservatives call an abortion clinic. He also has not followed through on Obama Care,, the wall or “religious freedom”? what did he do in that regard. We have religious freedom and always have. Main reason for US existence is religious freedom. People that support people like this guy just don’t really research. Simply repeat what they see and hear from the likes of Fox News. Russians are the ones promoted the severe anti-Hillary bunk. Anti-Christ? You sound like a real solid Trumpster with statements like that. HEARSAY is all your doing….

      • typical libturd. dems refuse to allow anything to pass w/ out pp funding. u know that. religious freedom has been under attack since obama took office. trump ended it
