‘Christianity Today’ Editor Thinks It’s ‘Strange’ Evangelical Voters Don’t Believe Trump Is ‘Morally Unfit’

Published

The vast majority of Christian voters have not at all been shy about throwing their support behind President Trump, despite the fact that he’s very much an imperfect man who has made a lot of personal choices that many would find to go against biblical standards of morality.

However, there are still some believers out there who feel Trump is “morally unfit,” one of those individuals being Christianity Today Editor-In-Chief Mark Galli.

Galli stopped by “Face the Nation” on Sunday to defend a recent piece he published on the CT website, calling for the removal of President Donald Trump from office.

Galli told CBS host Margaret Brennan that he found it “strange” that fellow evangelicals do not share his view that the 45th president is unfit for office.

“I’m not making a political judgment about him, because that’s not our expertise at Christianity Today. I am making a moral judgment that he is morally unfit, or even more precisely, it’s his public morality that makes him unfit,” Galli explained, according to the Washington Examiner.

“A president has certain responsibilities as a public figure to display a certain level of public character and public morality,” he added. “And the point of my argument is not to judge him as a person in the eyes of God…that’s not my job…but to judge his public moral character and to ask, has he gone so far that the evangelical constituency that we represent. Can we in good conscience do the trade-off anymore?”

Brennan took an opportunity to point out to Galli that recent poll numbers express that approval for the president is quite high among evangelicals.

This didn’t really seem to impact Galli’s thinking in the slightest.

“I have no animus against them, but it strikes me as strange for a people who take the teachings of Jesus Christ seriously, the teachings of the Ten Commandments seriously, that we can’t at least say, publicly and out loud in front of God and everybody, that this man’s character is deeply, deeply concerning to us.” Galli replied.

Galli went on to say, “In my judgment, [Trump] has crossed a line, and I no longer think he’s fit to lead the United States of America.”

Charges Announced in the Death of Daunte Wright

The charges may not appease protesters, however.

As Minneapolis and her suburbs contuse to grapple with violence and looting in the aftermath of the death of Daunte Wright, officials on Wednesday announced charges against the officer involved in the case. Wright was shot and killed several days ago in an incident that was described as “accidental” by the police chief of Brooklyn Center, a suburb of Minneapolis where, coincidentally, the trial of Derek Chauvin, the police officer involved in the death of George Floyd, is currently ongoing. Now it appears as though another trial will be coming to the greater Minneapolis area in the coming months. Local prosecutors in Minnesota on Wednesday are expected to charge former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, as civil unrest has persisted for three consecutive nights, with demonstrations spilling into Minneapolis. Washington County Attorney Pete Orput is expected to announce the second-degree manslaughter charge later Wednesday. Orput did not immediately return a voicemail left by Fox News on Wednesday. The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, according to The Associated Press. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, KSTP and Minnesota Public Radio all reported Orput’s expected charging announcement. Potter is believed to have been reaching for her taser when she accidentally brandished her service pistol instead, striking and killing Wright with one projectile, while expressing her disbelief as seen and heard on body cam footage.

Despite Travel Warning, MI Health Official Visits Popular Spring Break Spot

And it’s not the first time that Michigan officials have been caught flouting their own guidance.

While we may be nearing the end, or at least the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic, there are still some pockets of the nation where trouble remains high.  Michigan just happens to be one of those places. This, despite the draconian lockdowns imposed by controversial Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who has been the target of a number of harsh criticisms over her handling of the pandemic. Now, in what some seem to believe could be a brazen flouting of their own advice, one top health official in the state has jetted off to a popular spring break destination while Michigan itself remains under a travel advisory. Michigan’s new health director traveled to Alabama last week shortly after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer discouraged residents from traveling as the state leads the nation in the highest number of new coronavirus cases, a local news service first reported this week. Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Director Elizabeth Hertel was in Gulf Shores, Ala., according to the Michigan Information & Research Service. Gulf Shores is a popular resort destination along the Gulf of Mexico. A DHHS spokesperson told Fox News the agency does not “discuss the director’s personal schedule.” The locals were not amused. “The sheer brazenness of Gov. Whitmer and her staff is truly something else,” Michigan GOP spokesman Ted Goodman told Fox News. “The fact that our Governor and her top staff think it’s appropriate to travel out of state on vacation as Michigan faces the worst COVID numbers of any state in the country just reveals the arrogance and condescending nature of this administration. Whitmer’s position on the draconian lockdown orders is simple — rules for thee, but not for me.” This isn’t the first time that Michigan officials have been caught ignoring their own advice, with Governor Whitmer’s…
