    You overlook the vast majority of Christian sect leaders who DID and DO condemn Trump, notably the Pope.

    Franklin Graham recently denounced Trump's adultery. He's a very prominent Christian fundie leader, so that matters.

    Plus, fundies do not have a hierarchical structure. There's no rageaholic-in-chief.

    Maybe but then they vote for him. We overlook they have an agenda. Franklin Graham has railed on Trumps behavior several times, but then supports him. Said something about him being "the only real choice when it comes to appointing judges, abortion etc."
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    Yes, Graham models moral bankruptcy for his followers.

    That seems to be the entire payoff for a sizable percent of the fundie population in the U.S. "Join, and you too can luxuriate in racism, sexism, stupidism, etc."

    They have an agenda. Electing Trump was to secure more conservative judges and potentially the Supreme Court. They didnt care if the devil himself was running, as long as he was putting in conservative justices. Its why they keep quiet.
    Thanks from MaryAnne and Madeline

    When did Graham rail on Trump? He has been a strong supporter of him all the way down the line.

    Evangelicals are the main supporters of Trump. That is the Southern Baptist that has been fighting like cats and dogs at their Convention each year, one side seeking Inclusion. The other side dogmatic,rigid.

    The one side even wants to get rid of the Southern name.

    Abortion,gays and love of guns. Obama was right when he said,” They hang on to their Bible and guns.”

    Graham didnt like the tone of his tweets, his foul language or his words about women. But then he said we are all flawed or something like that.

    No doubt, but there is no formal heirarchy.
