Trumpvangelicals and the New "Culture Wars"

Trumpvangelicals are the New Evangelicals (Sarah Posner) from The Week
"... many evangelicals are aghast at Trump's ascendancy. These conservative white Christians who reliably vote Republican have for decades prioritized abortion, religious freedom (the kind at issue in the Hobby Lobby case), and Israel. Trump has de-prioritized abortion, barely gives lip service to religious freedom, and has declared himself "neutral" on Israel. Trump and the Trumpvangelicals are revolutinizing the culture wars. The priorities now are immigration, Islamophobia, and guns."
