An editor from the Christian Post, Napp Nazworth, has quit his job after the publication posted a pro-Trump article. Their piece was a rebuke of Christianity Today's article that asked for Trump to be removed as president. This left Napp Nazworth in a debacle as it was not something he could support, so he resigned.
News of his resignation found itself on major networks such as Fox News and CNN, with the latter reporting the following:
A former editor for The Christian Post said Thursday he had "no other choice" but to resign from his job after the Christian news website issued a strong editorial supporting President Donald Trump.
"When I was told this would be the position of the paper, of the news site, I said that's not something I can support," Napp Nazworth, who announced on Monday that he had resigned from The Christian Post, told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day."
The article in Christian Post was in response to the anti-Trump piece, by editor Mark Galli, and posted on Christianity Today. It was titled, "Trump Should Be Removed From Office" and the last part of it stated:
We have reserved judgment on Mr. Trump for years now. Some have criticized us for our reserve. But when it comes to condemning the behavior of another, patient charity must come first. So we have done our best to give evangelical Trump supporters their due, to try to understand their point of view, to see the prudential nature of so many political decisions they have made regarding Mr. Trump. To use an old cliché, it’s time to call a spade a spade, to say that no matter how many hands we win in this political poker game, we are playing with a stacked deck of gross immorality and ethical incompetence. And just when we think it’s time to push all our chips to the center of the table, that’s when the whole game will come crashing down. It will crash down on the reputation of evangelical religion and on the world’s understanding of the gospel. And it will come crashing down on a nation of men and women whose welfare is also our concern.
At least the article pointed out one good thing... that Democrats had it out for Trump since day one.
That we should all agree on - the rest, that's up to you.
