If we were to step back and look at the big picture, we may find some truth in the comparison Howard Dean is making. Evangelicals have, after all, aligned themselves strongly with the GOP and the current president in such a way that surprises many.
President Trump is his own storm. Whether you see him draining the swamp or blowing hot air, evangelicals have walked into the cultural storm that surrounds this president.
So, when Dean links us together, that is understandable. And, of course, we need to be careful about a too-close-for-comfort commitment to any political party.Yet, as I wrote in my recent article in USA Today, although Dean’s correlation of the GOP with evangelical Christians is understandable, it is nevertheless incomplete and unfair.
