Court evangelical Franklin Graham recently tweeted the following:
Our nation seems to be unraveling in hatred. There are forces out to destroy our country and the freedoms we all love. I hope everyone reading this will stop and take a minute to pray for this country, for our leaders, and especially for our president.

Here is the way Trump-supporting evangelicals read Graham’s tweet:
“Our nation seems to be unraveling in hatred.” Democrats hate America and their actions toward Trump are precipitating the collapse of the United States as a Christian nation.
“There are forces….” The Democrats behind impeachment are working for Satan, seeking to undermine America’s Christian identity. (“Forces is very often linked to demonic activity in evangelical-speak).
“pray for this country…”: Pray that Donald Trump will not be impeached and God will intervene to protect His anointed one.
