The evangelicals are Donald Trump’s most unwavering fans, but for some time there have been rumblings in other areas of the Christian world. The latest is a bipartisan super PAC Not Our Faith, which is anti-Trump. Huffington Post:
“Mr. President, the days of using our faith for your benefit are over,” the ad from Not Our Faith warns. “We know you need the support of Christians like us to win this election. But you can’t have it.”
The spot also accuses Trump of “using Christianity for his own purposes,” and shows footage of his Bible-toting photo op in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church, across from the White House, after having peaceful protesters teargassed to clear the area for him.
Not Our Faith’s advisory council includes Michael Wear, a faith adviser to former President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, and Autumn Vandehei, who was an aide to former Rep. Tom Delay (R-Texas), The Associated Press reported. The group is launching a six-figure TV and digital ad campaign targeting Christians, especially evangelical and Catholic voters.
Just one more big gun trained in Donald Trump’s direction and ready to go boom. Paradoxically, the most divisive figure in American politics is unifying the rest of us in an effort to get rid of him. “Not our faith” sounds just like “not our president.” And soon that will come to pass.
