      I live in the Bible belt and can tell you: the evangelical megachurches are chock full of Christian nationalists.

      Sure, there are factions in the GOP that don’t really care about religion , but the SCOTUS wouldn’t have overturned Roe if the hardcore religious zealots didn’t work for decades to get it done.

      The protesters at abortion clinics were bussed there by the churches a lot of the time; they’re not outliers here. They are the engine that runs the party here in Texas. They have all kinds of excuses as to why Trump is doing God’s will despite being a terrible human being.
