Ahead of Washington Speech to Faith Group, Nation’s Leading Evangelicals Scrutinize Donald Trump’s Integrity in New Video
Washington, D.C. -- In a new video released by Faith in Public Life Action Fund, three of the nation’s leading evangelicals condemn presumptive nominee Donald Trump for his racist, sexist and xenophobic rhetoric and compel to him to seek forgiveness for his actions.
In the video, Trump tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he does not need to repent when he hasn’t made any mistakes.
“Here’s a man who holds up a Bible one day, and calls a lady a ‘bimbo’ the next. It’s just beyond me,” said Pastor Max Lucado, a prominent evangelical pastor and best-selling writer.
“We can’t sit idly by and allow a presidential nominee to suggest that we need a ban on Muslims entering this country or to suggest that a federal judge is disqualified because of this ethnic background,” said Dr. Gabriel Salguero, founder of the National Latino Evangelical Coaltion (NaLEC).
Trump is expected to speak in Washington on June 10th at the “Road to Majority” Conference sponsored by the Faith & Freedom Coalition.
Faith in Public Life (FPL) is a strategy center for the faith community advancing faith in the public square as a powerful force for justice, compassion and the common good.
