Donald Trump is no saint, but I know why evangelicals love him

As a recovering Christaholic, 12 years sober from God, I’ve been asked before to explain why evangelicals stick with Donald Trump. After all, his attempts at appearing Christian are hopelessly pretentious, he’s bragged about his sins, and has built a career on casinos and half-naked women.

The easy answer is: Evangelicals know he’s not a real Christian, but they’re pragmatic about overturning Roe v Wade, and generally agree with his economic plan of deregulation, lowering taxes, and keeping undocumented immigrants out.
