According to a Pew poll through July (“Do Pastors Wield Political Influence?,” Aug. 15), nearly four-fifths of evangelicals planned to vote for Donald Trump in November. I am surprised and concerned. Though evangelicals are traditionally Republican and are courted by Trump, how can they disregard the hatred and bigotry he spews? Trump’s vulgar words and beliefs run contrary to Christian values. What does the Bible say? What does Jesus teach? These are the questions Christians should ask themselves.
