Episode 429: Post-Election Night Reactions & Abortion Activism With David French



It’s 2020, did anyone really expect the election to be easy? The morning after the vote, a sleep-deprived Holy Post crew discusses what the incomplete results mean for the country and the church. The country hasn’t repudiated Trumpism, but they don’t seem to be embracing progressivism either.


Did evangelicals still “hold their nose” and vote for Trump, or do exit polls show they’re deeply inhaling? An article from Christianity Today’s president, Tim Dalrymple, helps explain the evangelical divide over politics. And can the church learn to be prophetic again rather than partisan? Also this week, Phil talks with David French about reactions to the Holy Post video on abortion, and what the data shows will actually reduce the abortion rate in America.

Sorry, so many comments.. lol. I am a verbal processor. I just read Skye’s response to the responses and it was helpful. The root is the same but the solutions will look different.

I should preface this by saying that I am Canadian so obviously I didn’t vote but the election was and is still very much on our radar and especially social media. I also woke up early and immediately looked for the results. Lol. Phil, I loved your comment about the church not being off the hook. So true. One of the sad things about the binary trap of choosing racism or abortion is that they both have the same root issue- not seeing a person as human with the same rights. Rather they are seen as a problem and inconvenience. When people are seen that way it does not matter how much they suffer, whether being mutilated in t…

In reference to Skye’s comment about past Trump employees not supporting him. Jeff Sessions, former Attorney General, does still support him. in his effort to win back his Alabama Senate seat he vocally supportEd Trump and his policies. Trump, of course, spoke very despairingly of him and supported the former college football coach Sessions was running against. Now that same coach won the election 🙄 and we have to put up with him for the next 6 years.

@Phil, I feel honored that you would respond to me personally. Thank you. I appreciate your clarification on what you meant by it. It does help me to understand what you were thinking. By the way, I am not mad at you, Phil.
