church politics

Pastor Doug Pagitt encourages attendees to speak against politicians who don’t govern with “love” at his former church, Soloman’s Porch, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Feb. 4. Pagitt’s Vote Common Good campaign is working to energize evangelical Christian voters who don’t recognize their faith in President Donald Trump or mainstream conservative politics.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — President Donald Trump’s homestretch push to repeat his razor thin victory in Pennsylvania four years ago won’t happen without white evangelicals, and there are signs that critical component of his coalition hasn’t lost the faith.

It’s a group that has often made the difference for Republicans on the Pennsylvania ballot. And while some born-again voters had misgivings about Trump in 2016, they helped him eke out a 44,000-vote margin of victory in the pivotal swing state. This time around, they sound eager to repay him for supporting their agenda.
