After Years Of Questioning Obama’s Christianity, Tony Perkins Gives Trump A ‘Mulligan’ On Porn Star Affair

Religion is never about morals, it’s just some idiots using a threat that an invisible man will send you to hell if you don’t believe whatever they feel like at the moment:

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins put the Religious Right’s transactional relationship with President Trump into stark terms in an interview with a Politico podcast published yesterday, saying that evangelicals had given Trump “a mulligan” or “a do-over” for past behavior, including an alleged extramarital affair with a porn star to whom Trump’s lawyer reportedly paid $130,000 in hush money shortly before the 2016 election. Perkins even used the word “transactional” to describe the president’s relationship with the Christian Right.

Perkins later made similar comments to CNN, saying “evangelicals understand what a second chance means” and dismissing the alleged affair as 10 years in the past—never mind the much more recent payout. Franklin Graham also told CNN that evangelicals are giving Trump a pass because all of his indiscretions were in the past.
