About this Event

President Trump And Evangelicals: Strange Bedfellows Or No?

Time: October 18, 2019, 3-5pm

Location: Moravian College, Haupert Union Building (HUB), Pavilion

Much attention has been given to the almost devout support that evangelicals have given to President Donald Trump, despite his character flaws, especially toward women. This presentation will make the case why there are credible reasons for this support and conversely make the case how such support erodes the moral credibility of the evangelical movement.

The presentation will also review the other notice trends in faith-based political participation in recent elections, with an eye both to the growing impact of the Latinx vote and also the impact of voters whose politics are secular in disposition – the so-called “nones.” [no religious affiliation].

The presentation will also close with a brief consideration of the relevance of the life and work of Jan Amos Comenius in terms of addressing the prevailing US political-cultural divide.

Seating is limited, so be sure to register.
