Credit is due. Some evangelical Christians understand the hypocrisy of backing an Alabama child molester on religious grounds. No less a leading light than the editor of Christianity Today, the publication founded 61 years ago by Billy Graham, had this to say about the election in Alabama.
No matter the outcome of today’s special election in Alabama for a coveted US Senate seat, there is already one loser: Christian faith. When it comes to either matters of life and death or personal commitments of the human heart, no one will believe a word we say, perhaps for a generation. Christianity’s integrity is severely tarnished.
I could not have said it better.
