Not Much Religion Left

With the departure of Ted Cruz from the presidential race, the religious component now seems minimal. Hillary Clinton (Methodist) appears to be the most serious religious person in the contest but speaks little about family values and is resolutely pro-choice. Bernie Sanders (Jewish) seems pretty lukewarm about religion, and Donald Trump’s (Presbyterian) faith–like most aspects of his personality–is a matter of controversy.

If I were a card-carrying Evangelical or pro-life Roman Catholic, I would have no one to support. Some conservative Christians are urging a vote for Trump as “not-Hillary,” but many others find this too contrary to their principles.

Yet one more twist in a mystifying political season. —J. Douglas Ousley
