Christians Who Don’t Want Trump Impeached Are Immoral

Christianity Today has decided that Trump must be impeached and the souls of Christians who support him are in peril if they continue to do so. According to editor Matt Galli, this impeachment is such that it would damage our Republic therefore a comment is necessary. 

“But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: 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. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”

Wait a minute. One of Galli’s reasons that Christians should support impeachment is because the facts are unambiguous regarding the Ukraine call? Did he READ the transcript of the call? I did. I’ve read it several times in fact. Yet Matt Galli, speaking on behalf of all Christians who read Christianity Today, tells us

“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.”

Again, did he read the transcript? Did he really watch the impeachment hearings? I did both. I’d ask him to point to exactly which line(s) in the call transcript that ensure impeachment is a necessity. Yes, the linked NY Times article shows the areas that many have called into question. However, let’s remember a few things.

  • Biden is on record for bragging about getting the Burisma prosecutor fired
  • Biden is on record for stating that money was going to be withheld from Ukraine if said prosecutor wasn’t fired.
  • Biden was Vice President at the time that action took place
  • Crowdstrike has a dubious background that includes ties to Clinton, Fusion GPS, and the Steele Dossier.
  • Senator Chuck Grassley wanted information on Crowdstrike back in 2017.

Christianity Today is telling Christians that, based upon the hearings, impeachment must happen or our morality will be in question.

I watched the hearings, and listened to them while driving (which at times resembled listening to paint dry), and am still wondering where the actual impeachable offense is. Not one single witness regarding Ukraine could definitively point to anything President Trump said or did that would jeopardize this Republic. What I did learn from the hearings is that there was a great deal of presumption and second/third/fourth hand information. Was anything offered at the hearings that was the actual gotcha?

Matt Galli seems to think so. According to him, everything we saw and heard during the hearings highlights President Trump’s moral deficiencies. The same concern Christianity Today had regarding Clinton is the same concern for Trump today. One thing that Galli glosses over regarding Clinton is that he actually lied under oath. So if one is going to make the case for Trump’s impeachment using previous impeachments as part of your reasoning, not mentioning the fact that Clinton was impeached for perjury is an interesting omission.

Furthermore, if one wants to make the case for or against Trump, then make the case without inferring that Billy Graham would’ve been for impeachment. It’s completely understandable that Franklin Graham pushed back at that inference.

Again, Christianity Today wants impeachment and conviction to take place because people said Trump did stuff regarding Ukraine. What stuff did he do that is impeachable is still the question.

Matt Galli wants us to know that he has no personal animosity towards the President.

Many have read the article and responded affirmatively. Others have provided some food for thought.

According to Galli, those at Christianity Today have reserved their judgement regarding Trump for way too long. As he states in the video above, the impeachment hearings were the last straw. Therefore it is incumbent upon all Christians to call for him to be convicted. Feelings over facts I guess.

Galli’s warning to Christians who continue to support the President is wholly inappropriate in my opinion.

“To the many evangelicals who continue to support Mr. Trump in spite of his blackened moral record, we might say this: Remember who you are and whom you serve. Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior. Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump’s immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency.”

One tenet of the Christian faith is that judging one another is wrong. Yet Galli has now told Christians is that Christians are supposed to judge President Trump, find him lacking, and urge for his conviction based upon Matt Galli’s say so. If not, Galli tells us that any Christian who continues to support Trump in spite of Galli’s warnings means that our morality and our faith should be called into question.

How very…judgey of him.

    Oh, sure, mainline evangelicals would vote for socialism. Trump is a sinner, like me, but he does not advocate the antifaith policies that comes with progressives.

  • Mike-in-Keller says:

    I am a Christian; Christ is the Son of God, and Christ is the only means of salvation.

    Christianity Today does not represent me on the Trump issue.

    And now you know why I’m a heathen.

  • Orangemanverybad says:

    I left Christianity for Orthodox Judaism mainly because I detest the soft, emotional effeminacy of “men” like Galli. His “god” isn’t something to be feared or respected. He has invented a weak god as a mirror image of himself in an attempt to ennoble his own vices. My God judges men based on what they do, not what they feel.

  • James Raclawski says:

    what a great job regurgitating the progressive heathen propaganda -nearly verbatim too I might add… a mind-numbed robot could do no better..
    …. then to add insult to insult…. wrapping the putrid unconstitutional claptrap in “evangelical” flowery words makes it all the less pleasurable to endure….
    short retort…. shove a sock in it…..

    • CaptDMO says:

      “progressive heathen propaganda”
      I call myself heathen as I have no faith in the oscillating “foundations” in management, that are bought and sold like foreign currency in the temples.
      T’was ever thus.
      I’m STILL a Theist, just without bothering with topical “missives” like “Christianity Today”
      (Let’s call that “Popular Christianity”, for obvious reasons, shall we?)
      Much as I’m “officially” registered as “Independant” (“Undeclared” in NH) because the Republican party isn’t conservative, or “to-the-right”, ENOUGH!
      Hardly what “progressive” has de facto come to mean.
      I can abide with “Progressive atheist nihilists”
      Let’s all “look it up” as to what “heathen” ACTUALLY means,
      Wiki, twitter, Merriam Webster Collegiate. APA DSM!

  • Josh says:

    Read the eighth amendment to the Constitution. It says something about the accused having the right to call witnesses which might exonerate him. The democrats denied the republicans the right to call witnesses who might exonerate the President.

    That level of Un-Constitutionality is one heck of a technicality . . . I think it ought to invalidate the whole impeachment sham, and send just over half the House to the jail house.

  • GWB says:

    Matt Galli, speaking on behalf of all Christians
    …is LYING.
    How Christian is that, Mr Galli?

    That is not only a violation of the Constitution
    No. It isn’t. Lord, save us from false prophets!

  • GWB says:

    Christianity Today wants impeachment and conviction to take place because people said Trump did stuff regarding Ukraine.
    No, they want impeachment because he stops or slows the realization of the progressive eschaton. The same as the political true believers. The idea of achieving Heaven on Earth through human effort is a heresy – a perversion of the Gospel.

  • GWB says:

    in spite of his blackened moral record
    Wow, I wonder what sins Mr Galli has in his baggage…?

    Remember who you are and whom you serve.
    Oh, I do, Mr Galli. Whom do you serve? John 8:44-45

    Trump’s immoral words and behavior
    And what are those, Mr Galli? Other than his difficulty staying faithful to a wife (in his past), what can you point to? Every other offense I think I’ve heard laid against him has been a lie. (Hey, isn’t that a sin?)

  • GWB says:

    One tenet of the Christian faith is that judging one another is wrong.
    No. That is NOT true. What is forbidden is self-righteous judgment. We are actually required to judge our brothers that we might keep them from sinning (or return them to the flock). But we are required to do it in love.
    I don’t believe Mr Gallo is acting in love (since his accusations are false [8th Commandment]).

  • Joe in PNG says:

    ‘Christianity Today’- the title alone is two lies for the price of one.
    Not only are they not particularly Christian in writing (nor have they been for a while), but they tend to embrace worldly trends just as the world abandons them. Kind of like a wannabe hipster who tries to hard to be cool, but is usually laughably out of date on his pop culture.

  • GWB says:

    Twitchy finds a WaPo article that, well, here’s the quote:
    Washington Post: “It’s an influential publication.”
    Also Washington Post: “But not as influential as we’d like in this particular instance.”

    ‘Cause we should all stop talking about the birth of our savior to discuss politics the last Sunday of Advent (last Sunday before Christmas).
