In a Facebook post praising President Donald Trump for his remarks at the lighting of the national Christmas tree last week, Rev. Franklin Graham said that Trump had gone above and beyond the call of duty in being a voice and a warrior for people of faith.

“Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has,” Graham wrote. “Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic – all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers.”

Trump raised eyebrows with an unapologetically Christian-themed speech at the tree lighting – a marked change from the irreligious themes that were a favorite of former President Barack Obama. “For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” Trump said. “The Christmas story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all – the gift of God’s love for all of humanity.

“Whatever our beliefs we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history,” he continued. “There’s hardly an aspect of our lives today that His life has not touched – art, music, culture, law and our respect for the sacred dignity of every person, everywhere in the world.”

To American Christians who have watched their faith in Jesus turn into a near-anachronism in today’s increasingly-multicultural liberal landscape, it is unimaginably refreshing to hear a U.S. president forgo the niceties and get right to the meat of the matter. A blatantly religious speech at the start of a religious holiday doesn’t necessarily change the culture overnight, but it does bring the power of the bully pulpit back where it belongs. Instead of constantly criticizing and apologizing for Christianity, the way Obama did, Trump has dispensed with the political correctness in his recognition of this country’s founding faith.

Donald Trump is hardly an icon for the “Christian life,” but there’s a reason why so many evangelicals – both prominent and rank-and-file – see him as their last, best hope to turn America around. His steadfast unwillingness to buckle under the pressure of the mainstream, liberal culture makes him impervious to the crashing waves of multiculturalism that felled so many previous conservatives. He doesn’t pretend to be holier than thou, and it is in his willingness to get down and dirty – to fight it out to the death – that he has become one of American Christianity’s greatest modern champions.
