NLQ Question of the Week: Why Did Quiverfulls Vote For Donald Trump?

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Did Quiverfulls Vote For Donald Trump? November 17, 2016

QuestionoftheweekThis is a series we run every Thursday. The questions are things that people who may not know much about the Quiverfull movement or even Fundamentalist or Evangelical Christianity ask about the lifestyle. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life can only shine a light on the toxic nature of this lifestyle choice.

A recent article at the Huffington Post neatly sums up the deal with the devil that so many in the Quiverfull, Fundamentalist and Evangelical worlds have made on election day 2016 by voting for Donald Trump.  This was said:

And then on Wednesday, evangelicals woke up remembering what it’s like to feel victorious again in American politics.

“Their deepest desires may be enacted into laws – or hated laws repealed. Their prayers were answered – by electing a rude, crude and morally unacceptable nonbeliever,” Hartford Seminary professor Scott Thumma, who studies megachurches and nondenominational evangelical churches, wrote in an email. “I have interacted with a few evangelicals since the election … and every one of them were proud and happy to have had a part in Trump’s election – not exactly because of who Trump is, but what he stood for.”

Not only am I not understanding how some many of them ignored the obvious signs that they were being used to gain higher office, but I’d like to know how they self-justified voting for someone who clearly does not have their best interests or shared faith. Do you think they will continue to support him?
