If Kavanaugh Did It, Will Evangelicals Turn Their Backs On Him?

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh meets with Senate Majority Leader McConnell and VP Pence on Capitol Hill in Washington

Of course not.

If it turns out that Kavanaugh did sexually assault Christian Blasey Ford (or someone else), he will still have the support of many conservative evangelicals.

As Franklin Graham recently implied, the conservative evangelicals of the Christian Right will overlook Kavanaugh’s indiscretions as long as they continue to believe he will be the deciding vote in overturning Roe v. Wade or as long as he remains an originalist.  They will argue that this incident happened a long time ago and is no longer “relevant.”
