She noted that the term "evangelical" was meant to distance believers from fundamentalists, but has "started to really represent, actually, a branch of Christians that seemed to be a little more conservative and a little bit more hypocritical, a little bit more willing to compromise on the personal morals of a candidate in lieu of what politically they could gain for their party."

I gave up the fundamentalist label (quit going to that kind of church just over a year ago). I thought I would be happy with the label evangelical. Now, I refuse to claim that label too. The hypocrisy of evangelicals over Trump is despicable. I never dreamed that the broader evangelical community could be as morally bankrupt and void of intellect as the fundamental community is but they are. 

As a Christian, I stand against the likes of Trump and Moore. When the evangelicals tell me that makes me disloyal, I laugh. I am disloyal to their cause for sure. I despise it. But that does not make me disloyal to Christ regardless of what they write. In the article linked to above, Brandenburg says you are a Pharisee if you oppose Trump. I call Brandenburg a fraud because of the way he supports him.

Nothing says "family" like taking a dispute with one's cousin to public airwaves.  We were talking about public morals and such again?  One might even suggest that taking this dispute to public airwaves says what "reluctant Trump voters" like myself have been saying for a long, long time (myself for at least two decades); politics is not a scientific problem with one right answer, at least as far as the voters are concerned.  It is an engineering problem where one is trying to find the best available solution within constraints.

In this case, did you choose the immoral man who says he agrees with you on a few things, or did you choose the immoral and criminal woman who said she opposes you on almost all fronts?   Yeah, it stank, and I'm still dreading what might happen if Trump gets a bad Big Mac and starts being even weirder, but that was our choice.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
