Mohler to discuss evangelicals and the 2016 presidential race on MSNBC
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (SBTS) — R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, is scheduled to appear on MSNBC at 12:45 p.m. ET Saturday to discuss evangelicals and the 2016 election.
On Sunday, Oct. 9, Mohler wrote a column for the Washington Post in which he called on evangelical leaders to distance themselves from the GOP presidential nominee following the release of a video tape of Trump making lewd comments.
“When it comes to Donald Trump, evangelicals are going to have to ask the huge question, ‘Is it worth destroying our moral credibility to support someone who is beneath the baseline level of human decency for anyone who should deserve our vote?’” Mohler said in a Oct. 11 appearance on CNN. “I think that’s a far bigger question than the 2016 election. This election is a disaster for the American people; it’s an excruciating moment for American evangelicals.”
Mohler will discuss the issue with anchor Sheinelle Jones. Earlier this week Mohler appeared on “CNN Tonight” with Don Lemon and Charmaine Yoest. He has also addressed the topic on his daily podcast, “The Briefing”, and in interviews with other media outlets.
As with all live television, the appearance is subject to change for breaking news.
