VT Episcopal priest ‘laments’ death of evangelical religion due to politics – Brattleboro Reformer

A priest of a non-evangelical denomination that is hemorrhaging membership serving a parish in politically liberal Norwich Vermont said evangelical Christianity “died” when 81% of its adherents voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Evangelicals might respond per Mark Twain, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” But is there any truth in what he says?

"I think that evangelicalism died in 2016, when 81 percent of white evangelicals voted for a man who's really the antithesis of everything that evangelicals have said they believed over the centuries," Balmer said. "And I mourn that. This is the tradition that I come out of myself, and I feel very sad about that, but it's gone, it's gone."

    Liberal Norwich Vermont said evangelical Christianity “died” when
    81% of its adherents voted for Donald Trump, Nah…. !!

    Evangelical Christianity “died” when they started following a foolish
    " liberal" agenda, the 81% who voted for Trump could see a man who
    was a " sinner ", but was on their side for Freedom Of Religion.

    Liberal want to abolish all religions…………
