Trump responded, inevitably, on Twitter, calling [Russell] Moore a nasty guy with no heart!” On CNN, hours later, Anderson Cooper asked Moore to continue the dialogue, and Moore flashed a crickety smile. It’s one of the few things that I can agree with Donald Trump on,” he said. I am a nasty guy with no heart — we sing worse things about ourselves in our hymns, on Sunday mornings.” He added, That’s the reason why I need forgiveness from God, through Jesus Christ.” He had found a way to mock an insult with a prayer.

During this season of relentless bombast and spectacle, Moore continues to be a refreshing evangelical voice.
