In The Atlantic, McKay Coppins reports on Trump's contempt for Christians and his admiration for those who exploit them.
In private, many of Trump's comments about religion are marked by cynicism and contempt, according to people who have worked for him. Former aides told me they've heard Trump ridicule conservative religious leaders, dismiss various faith groups with cartoonish stereotypes, and deride certain rites and doctrines held sacred by many of the Americans who constitute his base.
A perfect example of a story liberals think will change things, but which doesn't change anything at all. The idea that God might use such a man to usher in the kingdom of heaven is delicious to evangelical leaders. The perfect topping on the layer cake of resentment, grievance and self-pity.
