When I published an op-ed declaring that, as a Republican and an evangelical pastor, I cannot vote for Donald Trump in 2020, I knew it would not be well-received by his supporters. What I did not expect was the fierceness of the response.

In less than two weeks, I have gotten hundreds of messages from evangelical Christians from across the country. Much of the opposition has come from pro-life voters who support the President because of their perception of him as a champion for the pro-life cause. My op-ed critiqued the President’s participation in the March for Life and the sincerity of his anti-abortion stance. I personally believe that the President is cynically using pro-life voters for his own electoral purposes and doesn’t actually care about protecting innocent life at all.

The Trump supporters who have contacted me think I don’t care either and have denounced me as baby killer. I simply suggested that the Democratic nominee for President is a better alternative than Donald Trump, even if he claims to be pro-life.

The irony of this is that I am pro-life. When I was in high school, I attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C. My pro-life convictions were a primary motivation for me becoming an adoptive parent.

Guy is not a conservative evangelical Pastor.  His church is open to everyone, including LGBT.  Outside of this article, he labels himself as a Progressive Evangelical, and is part of Vote Common Good, which is a supposed faith based group whose sole purpose is to influence Christians against Trump.

Apparently, that includes subterfuge.

I have seen quite a few hit pieces like this recently.  Self proclaimed Evangelicals and supposed conservatives who are looked down on for finding fault with Trump to the point of voting Democrat. 

I don't think Trump is moral myself.  I question Trump's actual views on abortion.  However, he has done more for pro-life causes than any other President that I know of.  If someone were to make a rational argument against Trump, I would only find such a person worth listening to if the prefaced it by saying they are advocating not voting in the Presidential Election as a Christian due to immorality on both sides.

That's fair and I think it's also fair that this "evangelical" pastor questions his morality but for him to jump ship to the democratic nominee is just sickening, regardless of who that may be. They're all anti-christs IMO.

Both Bernie and Mayor Pete have recently said there's no place in the Democratic party for pro-lifers.
Makes no difference anyway. Their party platform supports abortion on demand with no restrictions whatsoever.

Like I said, this guy is guilty of subterfuge.  Intentionally pretending to be a conservative evangelical in order to look to the media as one who can legitimately chastise his brethren.  But he doesn't belong to the crowd he pretends to be a part of.  I always look at these guys churches to see what they are like after I read their articles.

My suspicions haven't been wrong so far.

Their party is not pro-choice.  It is pro-abortion.  For anyone to have a problem with Trump for his morality and then suggest a Dem candidate, whose party platform is mostly immoral is just rich.

So... This nozzle bases his diatribe on the unsubstantiated belief that Bad Orange Man is insincere about being Pro-Life... while he himself is lying about his own background and affiliations.
