Christianity Today: Trump Should Be Removed from Office

Of all the things that Trump has done in office, briefly delaying foreign aid to Ukraine in support of its ongoing military conflict with Russia over Crimea and the Donbass, which is utterly none of our business, is about the last thing that makes him morally unfit to be president.

Christianity Today:

“The reason many are not shocked about this is that this president has dumbed down the idea of morality in his administration. He has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. 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.

Trump’s evangelical supporters have pointed to his Supreme Court nominees, his defense of religious liberty, and his stewardship of the economy, among other things, as achievements that justify their support of the president. 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 impeachment hearings have illuminated the president’s moral deficiencies for all to see. This damages the institution of the presidency, damages the reputation of our country, and damages both the spirit and the future of our people. None of the president’s positives can balance the moral and political danger we face under a leader of such grossly immoral character. …”

What about his support for Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen?

What about the time he attacked Syria over the fake gas attack?

What about the fact that he has sold our foreign policy to Jewish donors who are loyal to Israel and who put its interests far above our own? These are all better reasons to impeach Trump.

As disappointed as I am with Trump, he has been the best president on foreign policy since Reagan. He hasn’t started two devastating wars that have cost over a trillion dollars and which have lasted for a generation like George W. Bush. He hasn’t destroyed a foreign state yet in the name of democracy like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton did in Libya and Syria and unleashed a tidal wave of refugees and terrorists that have flooded into Europe. Bill Clinton started a war in Europe in Serbia. George H.W. Bush may have won the Gulf War, but he got us bogged down in Iraq in the first place. The last four imperialist presidents all started foreign wars.

Trump has tried to reduce tensions with Russia, but has been blocked by the Deep State and the Democrats in Congress. He has tried to ease tensions with North Korea. He pulled back at the last moment from attacking Iran. He pulled troops out of northern Syria rather than get between Turkey and the Kurds. He is planning to pull troops out of Afghanistan. While there is much to criticize about Trump’s foreign policy record, he has still been an improvement over his predecessors. It is very easy to imagine how things could be much worse on that front. He followed through on “knocking the crap out of ISIS” which is all his base cared about. Trump’s foreign policy could be better in all sorts of ways, but except for Iran the problem here is less due to Trump than the Democrats, the Republican Congress and the Deep State.

First Things is right that evangelical elites like Russell Moore and David French are way out of touch with Trump’s evangelical Protestant base and that no one but these status signaling elites gives a shit about the phony Ukraine conspiracy theory.

First Things:

“Some years ago I wrote a short book in which I argued that, while political thinking was complicated, voting was not. One could agree with some parts of a politician’s manifesto while disagreeing with others. But in the voting booth, the X had to be placed bluntly and brutally next to the name of one candidate or another—no nuance, no “ifs” or “buts” allowed.

I have thought of that point many times over recent years as pundits have repeatedly expressed themselves on the matter of evangelical support for Trump. Now, I have no vote (being merely a Green Carder), nor do I consider myself an evangelical (though I do cohost a podcast for a group that uses the name). But it seems to me that the idea of passionate, unquestioning support for Trump by this rather nebulous group, the evangelicals, is greatly overplayed in the rhetoric of public discourse. I live in the heart of Trump territory and know many who voted for the Donald, almost none of whom took any pleasure in doing so. They simply felt abandoned by a Democratic party more concerned about identity politics than poor people. There was, in their minds, sadly no alternative. …”

There was never any groundswell of support for arming Ukraine in the first place. If Trump cut all foreign aid to Ukraine tomorrow, his base wouldn’t notice. Arming Ukraine to antagonize Russia has always been a pet project of our foreign policy establishment.

The author of the article admits that the evangelicals who support Trump aren’t reading Christianity Today anyway.

TAC:

“We speak for moderate, center-right, and center-left evangelicals. The far right—they don’t read us. They don’t care what we think. They think we’ve been coopted by liberalism. So, I understand that we do not represent the entire movement. And anyone who thinks that CT does, that’s just not the case. …”

By “far right” evangelicals, he means populists and nationalists who are less interested in Ukraine’s border than the state of our border with Mexico. This would make sense because that border is having a direct impact on our lives while Ukraine’s border with Russia does not. The “center right” evangelicals are more outraged by Trump’s withdrawal of troops from Syria than the human cost of the Syrian Civil War and the impact it has had on Syrian Christians.

  1. Twenty years ago (or more) conservative theologians whom I respected greatly, noted the Leftward drift of what they called THEN, ‘Christianity Astray.’ Clearly, they were prophetic.

    Shameless rag of a mag. May God judge them all and find them ‘wanting.’
    Not that DT is a paragon of moral virtue. But the hypocrisy of this screed, is only surpassed by Nancy Pelosi thinking that God hears her prayers, Pharasaic or otherwise.

    • In any nation, the one is hopefully supported by the other. It’s only in a fool’s mind, that one’s moral stance is considered inconsequential, subsequent to endorsing the man. As you are Mad (by your own admission) clearly, you are the latter… and possibly demonic, if you fear the State and Church conjoined.
      As it will be, once again, God willing.

      • Can you imagine hating your life and your world so MUCH that you welcome annihilation, in order to sit in a city of metal 24/7, in the middle of a desert, worshipping a jew volcano demon with every orc that shows up?

        I can’t.

  2. I’d say Christianity Today is a liberal website. However that’s pretty common “liberalism” in the modern Church. Most church denominations are now liberal including the Southern Baptist Church. The SBC is a perfect example of the Donor Class and it’s support for social liberalism but right wing libertarian economics. I’m sure many Pastors love that idea…..lots of Jew Money involved. However none of the above really do anything in a positive way for Christianity and our Social Conservative beliefs. So things like this happen (the Impeachment over something stupid) because America has lost it’s moral compass. What’s considered bad now is really nothing much in reality. Sure his close friendship with the Ukraine and Russia might be a bad thing. However I think him being a bully and supporting Gay Marriage is worse. He even supported the removal of the Confederate Flag in South Carolina and even picked Nikki Haley for the UN. Those are things he should be Impeached over 100% for being a fake….he says 1 thing and does another. Deo Vindice !

    • “He even supported the removal of the Confederate Flag in South Carolina and even picked Nikki Haley for the UN. Those are things he should be Impeached over 100% for being a fake….he says 1 thing and does another.” I would agree… and yet. He didn’t start OUT that way, and there was something that happened about a year or so into his tenure, that began this “Kike-friendly” track he’s been on.

      It’s more telling that the Demon-rats didn’t bring him up on those charges (nor would they have, ever-let’s be honest) but when he began to Awaken America to their duplicity, THAT’S when the “Jew Coup” began…..

  3. Drumpf hasn’t withdrawn any ZOG stormtroopers from Syria.

    he has switched them over to the easternmost Oil Province. Where

    they are stealing Syria’s oil and shipping it to Israhell. Just

    as ISIS did before. He is also pumping thousands of additional ZOG troops

    and air assets into Saudi Arabia as prep for the Iran War. Honestly, HW,

    your effort to find some redeeming virtue in globo-homo Drumpf is pathetic.

  4. The reason the far-Right doesn’t read ‘Christianity Today’ any longer is because the magazine cucked theologically years ago. It went from theologically very conservative to moderately conservative to liberal in a manner of 25 years. I periodically read this rag in the 80s and it was too liberal for me even back then.

    Any Christian who takes seriously his faith and knows both what he believes and why he believes it isn’t going to be reading CT on a regular basis (or none at all). Besides, the rag is filled with too many advertisements, especially from Christian colleges and seminaries that will do nothing but fill young minds with Dispensationalism and racial cuckery.

  5. I’m pretty sure that Christianity Today didn’t publish an op-ed calling for the impeachment and removal of jorge w. bush jr. for launching American invasion on lies (i.e., WMD) for Israel that has cost this country four trillion dollars, thousands of dead, maimed, and/or psychologically broken White Christians.

    Trump should be removed from office, but like jorge w bush, he has a VP even worse waiting in the wings.

    • (((christianity Today))) is nothing more then another proxy puppet for (((gods – chosen))) ones.

      These so called “evangelicals” are as Christian as the devil is a saint.

  6. Is it just me, or are the talking points used by the self proclaimed (((Christians))) in “Christianity Today”, are almost identical with the talking points used by democrats & leftist jews ?????

    You know.
    Heavy on Calvinist morality against thee plus PLENTY and PLENTY of righteous ‘holy’ condemnation, towards thee for not following so called “moral” values that these PSEUDO christians claim they represent !!!

    Simple rhetorical question:
    When the HELL did the so self proclaimed “christians” – or WASTE of SPACE humans as I like to name them – began to view foreign US National policy through the looking glass of morality ???

    So I guess Ukraine is to be the ‘proof of the pudding’ the yard stick the moral compass that President Trump is to be judged on, yeah??

    How about the Palestinians – a whole race of people taken HOSTAGE and TERRORISED and MURDERED on a DAILY basis by your “god’s” (((chosen))) ones!

    How about some moral indignation for that slice of US foreign policy, my little “christians”, how about them?? Or do they not matter??

    p.s.

    “evangelical christians” what a misnomer. A case of irony that can only be found in Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.

    A group of people that PROMOTE the eschatology found in St John’s of Patmos Book of Revelations and LONG for the End of Times, are nothing more then little DEMONS !

    As I said waste of space humans…..

    I have no clue nor do I feel compelled to learn much about the other Christian denominations – unless there is a reason for it.

    But If was not an orthodox Christian, I would gravitate without a doubt towards the pre WW2 German Protestantism, a Nationalist Ethnic version of Christianity.

    these wishy-washy self proclaimed “christians”, make me literally feel sick with their double standards and the fact that these little DEMONS walk around with an obnoxious self righteous attitude while all along live in a life of un-Holly hypocrisy about EVERYTHING they claim to believe.

    No wonder people see these little demons and want nothing to do with Christianity.

  7. To his credit Trump has seriously attempted to do many things as regards immigration only to have it declared unconstitutional by a federal appeals court and usually its the 4th Federal Appeals Court. The lesson we should take in all this is that Trump is good as it gets.It is impossible to enact needed reforms from within. Get off the USS Titanic before she drags you to the bottom with her. The United States in terminal! Was it not Bush that called the Constitution a “God dam*ed piece of paper?” Regardless when we have our own nation learn what toxins destroyed the United States so they do not incubate and replicate in the Ethno-State.

  8. Haxo deserves an upvote.

    I quit coming here when I realized that Hunter is too enamored with Trump. I spent countless hours warning the guy BEFORE the election.

    Trump is the most jew-centric POTUS ever to live. He is/was a non-starter from the beginning. There is nothing you can write or say to heal the taint.

    WTF?

  9. The decades to come will be full of tumultuous change from many directions and on many fronts. From the impeachment foolishness, to the Great Replacement, to popular uprisings against globohomo. Perhaps the perception of Nationalism itself will change. While I sympathise with the 2A resistors in VA, some of the imagery is rather cringe inducing. Particularly the displays of the “striped banner” and the attendant patriotic fervor. That will change in time. Even some aspects of the resistance to cucked Christianity are cringe inducing. While I appreciate and applaud the fervor of TruNews, I’m disturbed by their apparent rejection of Identity politics. Perhaps that may change in time as well. We shall see…
