This from John Fea
I have to give Trump credit. He knows that fear-mongering is one of the best ways to motivate evangelicals in the public square. Trump’s remark about “violence” reminds me of the 2016 GOP primary when Ted Cruz said the federal government would soon be removing crosses from tombstones. This kind of rhetoric, as I argued in Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump, works very well with evangelicals.
Shameful that it’s so easy to motivate us Christians with fear when Jesus Christ is Lord!
