At about the 3:40 mark, one of the hosts on The View asks Tapper if he has a liberal bias. Tapper says: “I am absolutely biased against lies. When there are people lying, I am absolutely 100% against it.”
In some small way I can relate to what Tapper said here. In case you haven’t noticed, I occasionally take some heat for criticizing my fellow evangelicals who ardently support Donald Trump. So am I biased? Yes. To paraphrase Tapper, I am biased against politicians who use bad or misleading history to win political points.
The entire Trump evangelical coalition is built on the dubious claim that America was founded as a Christian nation.
I know I have been promoting my forthcoming book on evangelicals and Donald Trump, but I wrote this book in 2011 and a second edition was republished in 2016. It may be more relevant than ever.
