Mohler: Defying the Accommodationist Temptation


The 2020 election is now before us.

I didn’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016, but I’ve already voted for Donald Trump in 2020.

Four years ago, I made an argument against him based on character. I still believe in the necessity of character for public office, but I’ve had to think more deeply about how character is evaluated in a given historic context.

In 2016, I doubted that Donald Trump would fulfill his campaign promises about the sanctity of life. I was wrong.

In his first term, President Trump has staked his place in history, defied the accommodationist temptation and given pro-life Americans more than any other president.

I voted for and I hope for the election of Donald Trump and the Republican ticket for a second term. I also hope for a continued Republican majority in the United States Senate. I do so precisely because of my convictions.

May God bless the United States of America, and may this nation bless the nations of the world.
