The Trump phenomenon and a call for common decency


I am trying to muster up some trenchant commentary on Donald Trump's candidacy, but have been so appalled that I haven't been able to find words. I've been hoping for others to speak for me.

It may be that Max Lucado, a leading conservative-evangelical minister with a reputation free from the usual scandals, will be the one to call his community to its senses. I think this piece that he wrote has already gone viral, but I'm glad to add my blog to the chorus:

Equally good is this op-ed column in The New York Times, by a self-identified evangelical, called "What Wouldn't Jesus Do?"
