President Donald Trump on Friday slammed the prominent evangelical publication “Christianity Today” as a “far left magazine” that is “doing poorly” after the magazine published an editorial labeling him as a “near perfect example of a human being who is “morally lost and confused” and calling for his removal from office.
The editorial’s publication Thursday amounted to a surprising act of dissension from within the evangelical community, typically one of the president’s most reliable constituencies. He has often hosted Christian leaders at the White House.
Mark Galli, the publication’s editor-in-chief and author of the editoral, writes that the findings of the impeachment inquiry into the president’s alleged attempt to coerce Ukraine into investigating his political rival Joe Bide are “unambiguous.”
“That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral,” Galli writes. “The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration.”
Galli continues: “That he should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments.”
