Conservative TV and radio host Glenn Beck said Thursday that it’s clear evangelicals are not living in their faith, because “no real Christian” could possibly support Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

Responding to criticism of his decision to “take on” evangelicals who are backing Mr. Trump, Mr. Beck, a Mormon who grew up Roman Catholic, said, “I’ll take on the Jews, and I’ll take on the Lutherans, and I’ll take on the Catholics, and I’ll take on the Mormons. I’ll take them all on. You’re damn right. Where are you? You’re not living your principles,” The Blaze reported.

“We have got to be a people of principles,” Mr. Beck continued. “Principles over parties, principles over interests. We’ve got to shore these things up and somehow or another, our side didn’t catch that memo and there’s no chance of saving us unless we reunite with our principles and do it with our neighbors.”

He called on listeners to “get to their church” and “wake your pastors up like there’s no tomorrow.”

Mr. Beck asked, “We’re a Christian nation — are we really?”

“Then why are we in so much trouble? Why do we have the same kind of problems that the non-Christian nations do with pornography and drugs and everything else? We should be setting an example if we’re actually living our Christian faith,” he said.

“We’re not living our Christian faith because no Christian, no real Christian — I don’t mean a judgmental Christian, I mean somebody who is living their faith — no Christian says, ‘I want that guy, that guy is the guy for me,’” he added. “Nobody, nobody.”
