Christianity Today or “Yesterday”?

Dear Editor:

Responding to Christianity Today’s article about President Trump’s Impeachment, the magazine’s core indictment is that Trump “attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader” to “discredit” one of his “political opponents.” It adds that Trump “abused his authority for personal gain” in a “profoundly immoral” manner that damages the presidency, the country, and “the spirit and the future of our people.”

As an Evangelical Christian, I didn’t vote for Donald Trump as a pastor but as a leader. I voted for Donald Trump to lift our nation from the political elitism that had become so morally corrupt and out of touch with middle America, pandering to the dominant liberal elements of our society from local governments to deeply entrenched federal career apparatchiks who were never elected by the people.
President Trump has made it a priority to support every American’s fundamental right to religious freedom enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

In Fact:
• 2017, President Trump signed an executive order to advance religious freedom, restoring the ideals that have undergirded our Nation since its founding.
• The President took action to ensure Americans and organizations are not forced to violate their religious or moral beliefs by complying with Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate.
• The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established a new Conscience and Religious Freedom division to help direct the agency’s efforts to protect religious freedom.
• HHS took action to protect the right of healthcare entities to act according to their conscience.
• This year, the Administration finalized a rule providing more flexibility for Federal employees whose religious beliefs require them to abstain from work on certain days.
• The Administration has unequivocally stood for religious freedom in the courts.

What the editor of Christianity Today should have reported on is how Liberal Democrats overwhelmingly support truly immoral issues that are explicitly non-Christian in line with the Bible’s message to “love the sinner but abhor the sin,” like “Late Term Abortion,” “Same Sex Marriage,” “Transgenderism,” “Homosexuality,” “Multi-Gender Legalization,” and a host of secular humanistic empowerments that attempt to give man the ultimate authority over his birth, existence, and future based on his own power. This is exactly what history claims we should not repeat.
