Evangelical Christian Mag: Remove Immoral Trump From Office

Trump

In a scathing editorial, the Billy Graham-founded publication Christianity Today slammed the president's character and said he should be fired.

Evangelical Christians have largely remained in lock-step with Donald Trump, even with all the president's racist diatribes, salacious affairs, and non-stop lying. But the dam may be starting to break -- the influential publication Christianity Todaypublished an editorial on Thursday calling for Trump's removal from office.

Written by Mark Galli, the publication's editor-in-chief, the editorial explained that Christianity Today has long tried to focus more on religion than politics, and that it initially tried to give Trump the benefit of the doubt.

Galli asserts that Democrats have longed wanted to impeach Trump (something Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi would strongly disagree with), but cannot argue that the president's actions in Ukraine were wrong and impeachable.

"The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president's political opponents," read the editorial. "That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral."

The editorial also lays out Trump's numerous moral failings: "He has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. His Twitter feed alone--with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders--is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused."

The article lays clear the hypocrisy of Trump's evangelical followers, pointing out how they, and Christianity Today, called for Bill Clinton's removal from office for his lies over an extramarital affair. Should evangelicals stick with Trump, their arguments will lose all credibility, states Galli.

"Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior. Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump's immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency. If we don't reverse course now, will anyone take anything we say about justice and righteousness with any seriousness for decades to come?"

Christianity Today, founded in 1956 by homophobe Billy Graham, is seen as a respected and relatively mainstream Christian publication.
