Christian Columnist: "Evangelicals, and Their Leaders, are Tools of the Trump Presidency"

Peter Wehner, who writes op-ed pieces for The New York Times (and other publications), says evangelical leaders like Franklin Graham, Eric Metaxes, Jerry Falwell Jr., Pastor Robert Jeffress, James Dobson and others "are effectively blessing a leader who has acted in ways that are fundamentally incompatible with a Christian ethic."

And that evangelicals are "tools of the Trump presidency."

I wouldn't care what he thinks, except that pastors, some of whom I know, are posting his thoughts on social media in affirmation to their congregations.

Let's take a closer look at what he is actually saying.

Yesterday Laura Ingraham raised the question of how far this so-called anti-racist movement will go, wondering out loud if Jefferson's Monticello and Washington's Mt. Vernon will go next.

General George Washington, his subordinate "Light House Larry" Lee, father of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and Andrew Jackson were all slave owners---5 of our first 7 presidents.

Will Mt. Rushmore be next?

Five years ago, to the day of the riot in Charlottesville, Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd a few miles south in Danville, Virginia that the Republicans "want to put y'all back in chains."

While ABC News tried to cover him by reporting that he said Republicans want to put "voters" back in chains, most knew, including Joe himself, that he was talking to the large number of blacks attending the rally.

President Obama's campaign deputy, Stephanie Cutter, said at the time, Obama has "no problem" with what he said.

So, who is trying to put whom in chains?

Planned Parenthood Now Defining "Good Parenting" For Preschoolers

Summer isn't gone, but a new school year is looming---and kids and parents are getting ready.

Planned Parenthood has already begun. And they're in the news again. This time because their website is giving "guidelines" that instruct parents to teach their children, beginning with preschoolers, that "your genitals don't make you a boy or a girl."

Franklin Graham is upset. Very upset. Hopefully, so will every other parent and grandparent.
