UK Guardian: Does the 'Cyrus Prophecy' Help Explain Evangelical Support for Donald Trump?

It was the day before the presidential election and I would have asked anyone, but I was particularly interested because she was a decorous, middle-aged black woman. “Well,” she’d begun, “I’m a Christian and I’m very much against abortion, and I don’t approve of same-sex marriage either.
