esquire.comThen if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson, who once was a member of the White House Iraq Group, the skeevy little working group that C-Plus Augustus put together to sell his meretricious case for the disaster in Iraq, is concerned that his co-religionists may be falling for a con not of his devising. From the Post:

In legitimizing the presumptive Republican nominee, evangelicals are not merely accepting who he is; they are changing who they are. Trumpism, at its root, involves contempt for, and fear of, outsiders—refugees, undesirable migrants, Muslims, etc. By associating with this movement, evangelicals will bear, if not the mark of Cain, at least the mark of Trump.
