Donald Trump met with some 1000 evangelical leaders at Trump Tower in New York City yesterday. He promised them that he would end the ban on politicking for tax-exempt organizations like churches. He also said that he would appoint anti-abortion Supreme Court justices. He also said that he would emphasize religious liberty, including allowing government employees to offer sectarian prayer in public and making department store employees say “Merry Christmas.”
The Washington Post said that the attendees were thrilled with Trump, but his critics among evangelicals were not invited. One of them, recalling the movement’s former insistence on moral character, said that the spectacle marks “the end of the Christian right.”
