Last week, Christianity Today came under serious fire after Editor-in-Chief Mark Galli called for President Donald Trump’s impeachment in a scathing editorial.
And now, Galli’s critics just upped the ante.
On Monday, according to Washington Examiner, a group of 200 pastors and church leaders penned a letter in response to Galli, saying that his editorial was wrong on every account.
“The editorial you published, without any meaningful and immediate regard for dissenting points of view, not only supported the entirely-partisan, legally-dubious, and politically-motivated impeachment but went even further, calling for Donald Trump not to be elected again in 2020 when he certainly survives impeachment,” the letter said.
“Your editorial offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations,” the letter added. “It not only targeted our President; it also targeted those of us who support him, and have supported you.”
Additionally, the letter addresses an instance where Galli appeared on CNN and called Christians who support the president as being “far-right.” The group of evangelical leaders say his statement on the network was demonstrably false.
Christians have long-supported President Trump for a variety of reasons, from his pro-life stance, to his incredible business background, to his bold government reform agenda.
At the end of the day, America must elect a Commander-in-Chief, not a Pastor-in-Chief — someone who is bold, daring, and willing to ruffle some feathers to maintain liberty and freedom across our nation.
