Cracks have appeared in evangelical support for Donald Trump over the video of his sexually predatory comments about women. But backing from some of his most high-profile conservative Christian endorsers, such as Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., is holding.Among James MacDonald, of Harvest Bible Church in Illinois and a member of Trump's evangelical advisory board, called the candidate's remarks "misogynistic trash".James Dobson, of Family Talk radio, condemned Trump's comments, but called Clinton's support for abortion rights "criminal".Others who stood by Trump were Ralph Reed, a member of the campaign's evangelical advisory board and founder of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, which aims to mobilize conservative Christian voters.Conservative Christian support for Trump has confounded those inside and outside evangelicalism.Early on, prominent Evangelicals, including Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Christian author Max Lucado, warned Evangelicals against Trump.In a recent Pew Research Center survey, more than three-quarters of white Evangelicals cited dislike for Clinton as a major reason they prefer Trump.At a Liberty University schoolwide assembly Monday, Falwell, onstage with Reed, put the focus on Clinton's record, deeming it much more of a threat than Trump's predatory remarks.
