A granddaughter of the Rev. Billy Graham, Jerushah Duford is a committed evangelical Christian who describes herself as pro-life. For most of her life, she voted Republican. Yet this year, she is voting for Joe Biden and is encouraging fellow Christians to distance themselves from a president who she says is trying to hijack our faith for votes.

She made clear to me that she is not speaking for her grandfather, the famous evangelist who died in 2018. But she added: I think he would be sad. I think his greatest desire had nothing to do with policies but to introduce people to a loving Jesus, and the division this administration has caused I believe has hurt this effort.
In one sense, Duford is an outlier. About 8 of 10 white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and polling suggests that the great majority will vote for him again in 2020. But Duford is part of a broader movement among some evangelical leaders to distance their faith from Trump, which in turn means interpreting pro-life in a broader way. In a sign that some evangelical voters are in play this year, the Biden campaign is advertising heavily on Christian radio stations.
Liberal relative gave me this article because she knows I am evangelical and pro-life and a very strong supporter of President Trump.
Yawn. Another Jezebel.
How come we never see articles about. He’s Black, anti gun, and an atheist, but he is voting for Trump this time?
Because this article is crap and you almost never hear the opposite situation.
Sounding “nice” and inoffensive is evidently more important than what you actually do or stand for.
To paraphrase Joe Biden: “If you’re voting for a man who vows to make the right to (free) abortions the law of the land, you ain’t pro-life”.
"You shall know them by their fruits". What have been the fruits of Team Biden and the left's efforts all these years? I'd say that an "evangelical" and "pro-life" person that can get behind either one of those movements is trulely neither "evangelical" nor "pro-life". Ask your liberal relative that if someone is demonstrably conservative in their actions, would they ever be considered a left leaning "liberal" by anyone?
The “broader way.” Indeed. And where does that lead, exactly?

Need I say more?
There is this false idea that real virtue is a kind of bland niceness and any type of strength is a vice.
Sorry but it’s patently obvious you can’t be Pro-Life and vote for a Dem! It friggn unbelieveable that she would vote for a party that allows the MURDER of a just born Child via a botched abortion as in NY! Sorry but she is nothing but Lying DIRT!
Yep. I reminded her that the overwhelming majority of evengelical pro-life Christians DO SUPPORT President Trump with good reason. He is the most pro-Christian, pro-life President we have ever had.
30 pieces of silver. She now haz.
The pro life cause is better served with a President Trump. The pro life cause would be attacked relentlessly under Biden Harris.
I don’t disagree.
Biden will be to Christianity as the Roman Emperor Diocletian was.
She is falling away from the Truth and will be accursed. God is separating the leftist goats from His sheep. She is sinning badly!
Yes - shudder.
Did the "Jesus we serve" overturn the money-changers' tables? Did he refer to his theological opponents as "hypocrites" or "brood of vipers" or "liars like their father, Satan" or "Dogs" or "fools"? The Jesus of the Bible did. Those actions don't exactly align with the Jesus you've created in your mind.
