Trump names Christian advisory council

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has named an advisory council of Christian leaders to help him win the evangelical vote in November. This is encouraging — sort of. Some of the advisers are linked to the Dominionist New Apostolic Reformation, a group that generally believes Christians are supposed to take over the world.

Also: Would-be Trump assassin is in the country illegally; Attorney General Loretta Lynch says our most effective response to violent Islam is “love”; Christian churches in California forced to pay for abortions; Britain votes on Brexit; and it’s now official — Jesus did *not* have a wife.
