FINALLY white Evangelicals might be putting Christ over politics. I knew Rev. Billy Graham personally. He wrote a letter to Howard University to recommend their acceptance of me as a divinity student. I believe if he were alive he would stand up for those who the president is hurting, like those who are being removed from health care, those whose food stamps have been cut and the brown immigrant children who have been separated from their families in one of the greatest demonstrations of child abuse. I hope Pastor John Hagee, Huckabee and the other political Christians are paying attention.

“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,” the publication said, referring to Trump requesting in a July 25 phone call that Ukraine investigate the alleged corruption of the Biden family. “That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral,” the magazine continued.

The article went on to slam Trump for having “dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration” and because “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.”

Accusing them of hurting their witness for Jesus Christ, Christianity Today closed out its editorial by rebuking evangelicals who continue to support the president, writing, “Remember who you are and whom you serve.” As a final warning, the magazine issued the ominous prediction that evangelical support of Trump “will crash down on the reputation of evangelical religion and on the world’s understanding of the gospel.”
