Best selling author, and Living Proof Ministries founder, Beth Moore is speaking out after Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president of the United States, was caught on tape bragging about his ability to sexual assault women.
“I’m one among many women sexually abused, misused, stared down, heckled, and talked naughty to. Like we liked it. We didn’t. We’re tired of it,” Moore said. She also had a word about evangelical leaders still supporting Trump: “Try to absorb how acceptable the disesteem and objectifying of women has been when some Christian leaders don’t think it’s that big a deal.”
Beth Moore wasn’t alone in her condemnation of Trump. Her comments sent ripples around the evangelical world and were seconded by Christian mega-speaker and author Christine Caine. Sara Groves, the Dove Award-nominated Christian artist, said, “Someone like Beth can go a long way in helping Evangelicals recognize these major blind spots.”
Groves herself was impacted by Trump’s remarks. “When I first heard the tape, I was shocked, and a bit surprised at how deeply it hit me,” she said. “I immediately thought of my own experiences, and of friends who have experienced much worse.”
