Roland Martin appeared on MSNBC’s “The Beat With Ari Melber” Thursday, claiming that “white evangelicals do not care” about the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Melber asked, “For a party that is evangelical and dealing with someone who was claiming to be a religious, moral leader, what does that tell us?”
“It tells us that first of all, white evangelicals do not care. Because if you look at Jerry Falwell Jr., you look at Ralph Reed, you look at Tony Perkins, you look at Robert Jeffress, you look at how they have defended anything and everything Donald Trump has done. They don’t care,” Martin responded.
He continued, “White conservative evangelicals also care about power. All they care about is a right-wing judge on the Supreme Court. All they care about are the same judges on the federal bench. They don’t care. As I’ve said before–they are not about the prophetic, p-r-o-p-h-e-t-i-c, they care about profit, p-r-o-f-i-t. That’s their focus.”
