I hear that some believed that Moore was innocent of the accusations against him.

Moore was a vile troll who clearly despises our Constitution before the numerous and credible allegations of sexual harassment came out. Yes, a lot of hypocrites who think (with evidence of less quality) that Bill Clinton is rapist believed Moore was innocent. A lot of those hypocrites are evangelicals and that’s the kind of hypocrisy I refer to.

I dont deny that Trump has been anti-Mexican and anti-Muslim etc. I just dont see that as evangelical hypocracy.

I do. How can pandering to such hate and prejudice to boost your own power be anything but antithetical to Christian values? How can being receptive to that message of hate and prejudice by supposed Christians be anything other than hypocrisy.

How can supposed Christians support an unrepentant serial adulterer who has said all the disgusting, vile, sexist and demeaning things about women that Trump has? The answer is, again, hypocrisy.

How can supposed Christians worship a man who so routinely engages in heinous, absurd and obvious lies? They are often lies told to advance hate (e.g. Birther crap). The answer is, again, hypocrisy.

How can supposed Christians support a man who belittles and mocks the handicapped, who smears POWs for being captured, and so on? The answer is, again, hypocrisy.
