Bill Tammeus: Why white evangelicals lose the culture wars
"I have heard several theories about why white evangelicals have largely stuck with Trump -- and many are sticking with (Roy) Moore.

"That decision, in fact, has been at the center of our culture wars for decades. Add to that the more recent court decision legalizing same-sex marriage in every state, and you find a large number of voters who are willing to ignore the moral cesspool that Trump represents to retain the prospect, via a Republican Senate, of Supreme Court appointments who will overturn those and other decisions they find appalling.
"But that's like fighting a war against crime by enlisting criminals to be your generals and admirals."
