Letter to the Editor

Removal of President Trump

Thursday, December 26, 2019

To the Editor:

The last two years has been puzzling for many Christians knowing the religious right have supported President Trump. The actions of President Trump certainly have not been consistent with the teaching of the Bible. As I was drinking my coffee this morning reading the paper and listening to the news on TV. I was totally shocked to read and to hear that the evangelical magazine Christianity Today, founded by the late Rev. Billy Graham, published an editorial on Thursday calling for the removal of President Donald Trump. The article stated in part “ None of the president’s positives can balance the moral and political danger we face under a leader of such grossly immoral character “, and “That Trump should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments”.

Asking for Trumps removal should have come before now from the Evangelical magazine. Now that it has, I urge everyone to call and email our state’s senators, Marsha Blackburn and Lamar Alexander. Tell them to support the removal of President Trump from office. It’s the right thing to do!

  • I agree if you are supporting the President and all the wrong that has been done under his administration you are not following the Christian way.

  • As opposed to the party who kills babies to avoid the consequences of sleeping around?

    Trump has not said or done anything not said or done by a previous democrat.

    The worst/best thing Trump has done is put democrat hypocrisy on full display.

  • Democrats have been mouthing "impeachment" before President Trump took office. Their behavior in the House during "inquiry" was not fair. They held close door interrogations by the Intel Committee, which was the judicial committee job. The "witnesses" they brought in were all Democrat biased and didn't have any first hand information on Ukraine. Republicans were not allowed witnesses. Evangelist will continue to support Trump because the other choice is socialism and killing of unborn children. Most people who only watch NBC, ABC, CNN have been brainwashed. To get the full picture watch One America News and Newsmax. MAGA 2020
