'Christianity Today' Calls for Trump's Removal From Office

Share

Christianity Today's editorial did not spare Democrats of criticism, writing that the party had been trying to take down Mr Trump since he took office.

In his post, Graham points to Trump's many accomplishments that evangelicals have celebrated from pro-life policies to championing religious freedom at home and overseas.

President Trump enjoyed support from large swaths of evangelicals in the 2016 election.

The editor-in-chief, Mark Galli, wrote: "The facts in this instance are unambiguous: 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".

"We believe the impeachment hearings have made it absolutely clear, in a way the Mueller investigation did not, that President Trump has abused his authority for personal gain and betrayed his constitutional oath", the editorial says.

Early Friday morning, President Trump responded to the op-ed on Twitter calling CT "a far-left magazine".

The influential evangelical magazine, founded by the late Rev. Billy Graham, issued an editorial Thursday condemning Trump's attempts to get Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden as "profoundly immoral".

Galli noted that many evangelicals support Trump due to his Supreme Court picks and policies, but argued the downsides of a Trump administration weren't worth it, and could force some to question the seriousness and judgment of evangelicals in years to come. This matters, because 81 per cent of white evangelicals voted for Mr. Trump in 2016, so while they make up just about a quarter of the USA population, their sway within the Republican Party is far greater than that.

"This president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration", Galli asserted. "I won't be reading ET again!" the president added.

But it said the impeachment process over Trump's efforts to leverage his public office to solicit Ukraine's investigations ahead of the 2020 USA election showed he "betrayed his constitutional oath". Before Graham's death a year ago, he said that Trump was a defender of the Christian faith. Graham wrote. "Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today; but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation", Graham said. I don't know if he means Entertainment Tonight or extraterrestrial. There are also no "radical" atheists, determined to take away anyone's religion, running for the White House, and even if there were, if the president were removed from office, his replacement would be Mike Pence.

President Trump will face a trial in the Senate, where a Republican majority is expected to acquit him of his impeachment charges.

"The Democrats in the House impeached millions of God-fearing, family-loving and patriotic Americans from the Democrat and Republican parties", the two leaders said. This impeachment was politically motivated, 100% partisan.

"It's obvious that Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism", Graham concludes. Pictured here is President Donald Trump, speaking during a campaign rally at Kellogg Arena in MI. The president's request came after millions in USA military aid to Ukraine had been frozen, which Democrats have argued shows a "quid pro quo" arrangement.

"The fact of the matter is Christianity Today is not read by the people - Christians on the far right, by evangelicals on the far right - so they're going to be as dismissive of the magazine as President Trump has shown to be".
