Philip Yancey Is Dumbfounded by Evangelical Support for Donald Trump

Add another prominent evangelical name to the #NeverTrump crowd:  Philip Yancey.

“I am staggered that so many conservative or evangelical Christians would see a man who is a bully, who made his money by casinos, who has had several wives and several affairs, that they would somehow paint him as a hero, as someone that we could stand behind,” Yancey said.

“To choose a person who stands against everything that Christianity believes as the hero, the representative, one that we get behind enthusiastically is not something that I understand at all,” he added.
