In An Age of Trump and Stormy Daniels, Evangelical Leaders Face Sex Scandals of Their Own

The Washington Post’s Sarah Pulliam Bailey writes that Frank Page, Bill Hybels, Paul Pressler, and Andy Savage, all of whom are evangelical leaders, have been beset by sex scandals as the #MeToo movement has encouraged more women to come forward with their stories. While Page and Savage resigned in response to their allegations and Pressler faces a lawsuit, Hybels has remained defiant. Bailey writes, “Some fear that women are still being discredited in a climate in which a high majority of white evangelicals support Trump despite the multiple sexual harassment and misconduct allegations he has faced.”
