Donald Trump met with hundreds of conservative Christians at an invitation-only event meant to reassure "the evangelicals" earlier this week. An article from The Christian Post covering the meeting caught Glenn's attention and he shared his reaction on radio Wednesday.
"I was struck by the nature of this post today because it's brave and it is correct. It was posted by Michael Farris yesterday, and I want you to listen to this from the Christian Post," Glenn said.
He then read the article out loud. Excerpt below:
This meeting marks the end of the Christian Right.
The premise of the meeting in 1980 was that only candidates that reflected a biblical worldview and good character would gain our support. Today, a candidate whose worldview is greed and whose god is his appetites (Philippians 3) is being tacitly endorsed by this throng.
They are saying we are Republicans no matter what the candidate believes and no matter how vile and unrepentant his character. They are not a phalanx of God's prophets confronting a wicked leader, this is a parade of elephants.
In 1980 I believed that Christians could dramatically influence politics. Today, we see politics fully influencing a thousand Christian leaders. This is a day of mourning.
"Holy cow, is that an evisceration," Glenn said. "This morning, when I read that, I posted this on Facebook, and I want you to really think about this."
Glenn proceeded to read what he wrote on Facebook early Wednesday morning:
Trump made another statement that raised eyebrows on Tuesday.
"Yesterday, Trump said we need to, quote, 'spiritualize' America. We need to --- is that like 'One Hour Martinizing'? What is 'we need to spiritualize America'? That, to me as a Christian, is terrifying," Glenn said.
