Tony Perkins: Liberals Are Using Trump’s Affair to “Shame” Evangelical Voters

Mar 15, 2018

By Hemant Mehta

Why do so many people point out the hypocrisy of conservative Christians who support Donald Trump? Why do liberals keep mentioning that the people who have long claimed the moral high ground due to their “family values” are currently frolicking in the bottom of the barrel? Why are even fellow Christians quick to shake their heads at white evangelicals who cling to Trump for short term judicial victories?

Religious Right leader Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, knows why: It’s because liberals are trying to “shame evangelicals for their political participation.”

“The intensity of this is growing and this is an effort to shame evangelicals for their political participation. And since I’ve spent the last 25 years, since I left the law enforcement realm and entered into the political realm both in activism and in public office, is to bring Christians to an understanding of what our role is, and our role is to be salt in the light,” Perkins said. “Now, first and foremost, that is to take the gospel to people — living it out.”

  • I’ll try to be civil on this one.
    Idiot Tony,,,,,,,,,sorry…. Umm,,,,, Perkins is insinuating there are no liberal evangelical voters.
    That’s interesting. So evangelicals are a political party?

  • @OP – Religious Right leader Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council
    knows why:

    The term “research” is being stuck on to this organisation as a pseudo-reseach badge for “faith-thinking from dogmatic preconceptions”, which have NOTHING to do with objective academic RESEARCH!

    Of course he “KNOWS” (by “faith”)!
    His view is challenged, therefore, instead of thinking through the issues, he sticks a political badge on critics arguments, and dismisses them from his closed mind!

    It’s because liberals are trying to “shame evangelicals for their political participation.”

    But as WE know, extreme-right evangelicals have NO shame about their hypocrisy, bigotry, know-it-all-ignorance, or cognitive dissonance!

    Salt in the light? What does that even mean?

    “Now, first and foremost, that is to take the gospel to people — living it out.”

    Living it out? I’m going to take a shot, and guess that means ‘living’ as their teachings would instruct them, and getting as many others as possible to do the same?

    I think most marine and motor engineers, would recognise that as “corrosion in the wiring” causing short circuits or system failures! 🙂
