Evangelical Leaders Praise Trump’s Upside Down Bible Stunt, Don’t Mention People Who Were Tear-Gassed

Evangelical leaders praised President Donald Trump’s ridiculous Bible stunt in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington D.C. on June 1.

The stunt began with police and the National Guard teargassing peaceful protesters, which was not mentioned by any of the evangelicals.

Pastor Jack Graham gushed over Trump — who held the Bible upside down during his photo-op — on Instagram:

David Brody, a news anchor at Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network, praised Trump on Twitter:

Johnnie Moore, who is a publicist to right wing evangelicals, gushed on Twitter about Trump’s walk.

Robert Jeffress, a Dallas megachurch pastor, heaped praise on Trump to The Atlantic:

I thought it was completely appropriate for the president to stand in front of that church. And by holding up the Bible, he was showing us that it teaches that, yes, God hates racism, it’s despicable—but God also hates lawlessness.
