Ralph Reed, the founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition and a prominent supporter of President Trump’s, will argue in a new book that American evangelicals “have a moral obligation to enthusiastically back” President Donald Trump.
In the book, Reed will defend Trump against “the stridently anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, and pro-abortion agenda of the progressive left,” according to Politico.
Reed’s book was originally titled “Render to God and Trump,” a reference to Matthew 22:21 in the New Testament, but it is now named “For God and Country: The Christian Case for Trump.”
“The publisher declined to comment on the reason for the title change,” Politico reported.
Reed, the former head of the Georgia Republican Party, will also push back against claims by religious and nonreligious critics that white evangelical Protestants “revealed themselves to be political prostitutes and hypocrites” by overwhelmingly supporting Trump in the 2016 election.
Eighty-one percent of self-described white, born-again or evangelical Christians voted for Trump in 2016, according to Pew.
Reed’s organization is backing a voter mobilization effort “three times the level of what we did in 2016” supporting Trump in the upcoming election, he told The Washington Times.
