According to Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), only 30% of American evangelicals in 2011 thought a person guilty of serious moral failures was fit for significant leadership roles. In 2016, that number rose to 72%…suggesting there is now something other than religious values driving their decision-making. Or, at least their religious values function quite differently than they did five years ago. A shocking number of evangelicals say the credible accusations of sexual assault against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore won’t diminish their support for him. In fact, many say they are more committed to his candidacy than ever. True religion?
“Everybody’s talking ’bout true religion…everybody hears the train.”
I wrote and recorded this song on the subject.
