Spectacularly bizarre evangelical endorsement of Trump

Wayne A. Grudem
These are the words of Wayne A. Grudem in Townhall.com. Grudem is a well respected Christian academic. This speaks volumes about the effect of religious fundamentalism on critical thinking:
He [Donald Trump] is egotistical, bombastic, and brash. He often lacks nuance in his statements. Sometimes he blurts out mistaken ideas (such as bombing the families of terrorists) that he later must abandon. He insults people. He can be vindictive when people attack him. He has been slow to disown and rebuke the wrongful words and actions of some angry fringe supporters. He has been married three times and claims to have been unfaithful in his marriages. These are certainly flaws, but I don't think they are disqualifying flaws in this election.
