In today’s episode, Jaye talks religious “insider baseball” regarding the Nashville Statement and American evangelicalism. After a turbulent August in the United States with Charlottesville and Hurricane Harvey, and Trump’s words and actions regarding domestic terrorism, transgender people in the military, the pardoning of Joe Arpaio, and his desire to roll back DACA, prominent evangelical leaders have failed to address the issues of the current age. The Nashville Statement demonstrates a missed opportunity for American evangelical leadership to show true Christian love towards LGBT Americans. Furthermore, Jaye discusses why their actions in a Trumpian America have constituted an abdication of their spiritual authority.
