When the leaked audio from 2005 of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump talking with Billy Bush about women was released to the general public, many in the media were shocked that evangelicals still continued to support the GOP presidential nominee.
While the media couldn’t understand why, Rev. Franklin Graham did. He wrote a stirring Facebook post that moved Trump so much that he re-posted it on his Facebook account.
“A lot of people are slamming evangelicals for supposedly giving Donald J. Trump a pass,” Graham began. “That’s simply not true. No one is giving him a pass. I’m certainly not, and I’ve not met an evangelical yet who condones his language or inexcusable behavior from over a decade ago.
“However, he has apologized to his wife, his family, and to the American people for this. He has taken full responsibility. This election isn’t about Donald Trump’s behavior from 11 years ago or Hillary Clinton’s recent missing emails, lies, and false statements,” Graham continued.
“This election is about the Supreme Court and the justices that the next president will nominate. Evangelicals are going to have to decide which candidate they trust to nominate men and women to the court who will defend the constitution and support religious freedoms.
“My prayer is that Christians will not be deceived by the liberal media about what is at stake for future generations,” Graham added.
Trump reposted Graham’s statements statement on Facebook:
Make no mistake — Donald Trump committed no crime. He only committed the grave sin of objectifying women in a disgusting way. He did so over 11 years ago. He has apologized profusely for it, and says he is a different man. His actions on the campaign trail have won over both evangelical leaders and voters.
A key tenet of Christianity is forgiveness for those who ask for it. Trump has done so.
While we don’t necessarily blame Christians who feel that they cannot support Trump, knocking those who do ignores one of the focal points of the religion.
