Christian Activist Tony Perkins Gives Trump A Moral ‘Do-Over’ Because Of Obama
Family Research Council president Tony Perkins told POLITICO why white evangelical Christians tolerate President Donald Trump’s moral failings (racism, adultery, lying, etc): “We kind of gave him — ‘All right, you get a mulligan. You get a do-over here.'”
The white Christian activist blamed the former black president for the chosen behavior of Christians who “were tired of being kicked around by Barack Obama and his leftists. And I think they are finally glad that there’s somebody on the playground that is willing to punch the bully.”
Perkins went on to rewrite Jesus Christ’s teaching of turning the other cheek: “You know, you only have two cheeks.Look, Christianity is not all about being a welcome mat which people can just stomp their feet on.”
Former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele slammed Perkins on MSNBC’s “Hardball”:
I have very simple admonition: just shut the hell up and don’t preach to me about anything ever again. After telling me who to love, what to believe, what to do and what not to do and now you sit back and the prostitutes don’t matter, the grabbing the you-know-what doesn’t matter, the outright behavior and lies don’t matter, just shut up.
