In a stunning reversal, theologian pulls back support from Donald Trump

Evangelical theologian Wayne Grudem was one of Donald Trump’s most surprising endorsers earlier this year, saying that the Republican presidential nominee was “a morally good choice.” Grudem’s endorsement set off a wave of controversy among evangelicals, who have been deeply divided over this election.

Some evangelical leaders who support Trump said they continue to back him, many of them denouncing his recently revealed comments about sexual assault but saying they still see him as the best choice. But Sunday, Grudem, a conservative theologian respected in many evangelical circles, pulled back his support and called for Trump to withdraw. The move could signal a loss of support for Trump from evangelicals, many of whom see him as a better option than Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“There is no morally good presidential candidate in this election,” Grudem wrote. “I previously called Donald Trump a ‘good candidate with flaws’ and a ‘flawed candidate’ but I now regret that I did not more strongly condemn his moral character. I cannot commend Trump’s moral character, and I strongly urge him to withdraw from the election.”

Grudem, whose earlier endorsement column has been removed from Townhall.com, said the comments Trump made in a 2005 video revealed Friday as well as comments he made on Howard Stern’s radio program in the past were the tipping point for him in pulling back his endorsement.

“Some may criticize me for not discovering this material earlier, and I think they are right,” he said. “I did not take the time to investigate earlier allegations in detail, and I now wish I had done so. If I had read or heard some of these materials earlier, I would not have written as positively as I did about Donald Trump.”

Is this guy credible? More than likely one of those religious wing nuts that doesn't realize morals and religion have no place in politics. He probably stands for garbage like family values as well. Why should the opinion an unhinged religious nut case matter all of the sudden?

Wow...more snark...just when we didn't think it could get any better.

Still waiting for Jerry Falwell Jr. and Franklin Graham. They have wrapped themselves in "Make America Great Again". Don't even know where to start with those 2 signing on to puritanical Trump.

Hillary is a wretched, flawed, dishonest person with a lust for power . The alternative is way worse.

For once I agree with Goob. The alternative to Hillary is way worse. Glad to see that you are coming around.

We finally agree, even with Hillary's flaws, the alternative is the greatest disaster ever to face America or the world. Glad you finally realize this Goober.

Perhaps the light came from forum moderators. Just sayin'
