It’s one of the nest pieces of wisdom I’ve heard in a while: Freedom of speech does not mean duty of opinion. That’s from Kelly Minter at Lifeway Voices, talking about.
Terry Mattingly at Get Religion scheduled a post, went offline for a few days, and didn’t check to see if it had published. It hadn’t. But it was still timely, so he reposted it. It’s about that famous statistic – that “81 percent of evangelicals voted for Trump.” He and Christianity Today have dissected that statistic, and they found what the news media never looks into (it’s a lot more complex that the news media stories would have you believe). He also repeats his list of the kinds of evangelical voters from 2016, and it’s worth paying attention to.
