WASHINGTON—Four evangelical leaders engaged Friday in a cordial yet passionate debate that illustrates ongoing disagreement over how people of faith should vote in the presidential election.
“Evangelicals are among the most vocal critics of both presidential nominees, while others vocally back Donald Trump,” said Jerry Johnson, president of National Religious Broadcasters, which hosted the event. “We’re holding this forum … in the hope that it will result in more light and less heat.”
