Donald Trump finally crossed a line he’s held short of until there was nobody left to offend. He went after Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
.@drmoore Russell Moore is truly a terrible representative of Evangelicals and all of the good they stand for. A nasty guy with no heart!

Moore has consistently written of Trump’s moral failings, his lack of repentance, humility or Godly character as disqualifications for office. At least for Christians to support.
But now with the nomination all but in hand, Trump believes he doesn’t need conservative Christians to take on Hillary. In fact, the general election will be decided by liberals, atheist libertarians and alt-right nativists. There will be no place at the table for many Christ followers.
As one pastor said last summer, if we elect this man to the White House, Christians will get everything that is coming to us.
For his part, Moore maintained his Biblical stance in his response.
