Dobson: Trump Recently Accepted Christ

I don't know when it was, but it has not been long. I believe he really made a commitment, but he's a baby Christian. We all need to be praying for him, especially if there's a possibility of him being our next chief executive officer.

I confess I learned this in an odd way. I found myself at CharismaNews, an evangelical news outlet, reading an article about relief that a portion of the Temple of Baal from Palmyra, Syria was not being relocated to New York's Times Square. (If you're not religiously-minded, Baal comes off pretty badly in the Bible.) Then in the trending stories I noticed the story about Trump accepting Christ. It's definitely legit: the guy who interviewed Dobson, Pastor Michael Anthony, actually went on CNN to talk about it. They played the audio of the interchange.

I find all of this amazing.
