Letters: Michael Gerson summed it up well

Re “Religious right bows down to Trump” (Viewpoints, Oct. 16): Politics make for strange bedfellows. The divide between liberal and conservative, faith and agnostic, leads many voters to reduce complex choices to binary decisions. A desire to ban abortion led too many people with otherwise inclusionery values to have their morals co-opted by a misogynistic demagogue. Michael Gerson said it best: “When Christians ally their faith with bias and exclusion, they are influencing how the public views Christianity itself.”
