“God Is Going to Have to Forgive Me”: Young Evangelicals Speak Out

posted on November 1, 2018

The New York Times’s Elizabeth Dias writes about responses she received from nearly 1,500 young evangelical readers, many of whom are questioning the connection between Republican politics and evangelicalism. “Many described a real struggle with an administration they see as hostile to immigrants, Muslims, L.G.B.T.Q. people, and the poor. They feel it reflects a loss of humanity, which conflicts with their spiritual call,” Dias writes. Curtis Yee, one of the young evangelicals featured, said, “I don’t think I diverge theologically from my parents in major ways, but while my family is quicker to blame ‘the liberals,’ I’m able to see that they aren’t evil, just people trying to do things in a different way.”
