Wall Street Journal front-pager, "Russell Moore, Baptist Leader Who Shunned Trump, Splits the Faithful: The head of the Southern Baptist Convention's public-policy arm triggered a backlash by criticizing Donald Trump's supporters. Now he has no access to the White House," by Ian Lovett in Washington:

"When ... Trump signed an executive order on religious liberty last month, he was surrounded in the White House Rose Garden by religious figures — Catholics, orthodox Jews, Sikhs and a host of evangelical Christians. One prominent evangelical was conspicuously missing: Russell Moore, the public face and chief lobbyist of the Southern Baptist Convention, the country's largest Protestant denomination."
