An editor at The Christian Post announced his resignation late Monday, citing a recent editorial that he said positioned the evangelical publication “on Team Trump.”
“Today, rather abruptly, I was forced to make the difficult choice to leave The Christian Post. They decided to publish an editorial that positions them on Team Trump,” tweeted Napp Nazworth, who has worked for the Post since 2011 and whose Twitter bio includes the hashtag #NeverTrump.
Nazworth’s resignation came after an editorial published by the Post earlier Monday.
In the editorial, John Grano and Richard Land accused Christianity Today editor Mark Galli, who called for President Trump’s removal from office, of “obvious elitist disdain and corrosive condescension for fellow Christians with whom he disagrees,” which they write “may well do far more long-term damage to American Christianity and its witness than any current prudential support for President Trump will ever cause.”
“I can’t be an editor for a publication with that editorial voice,” tweeted Nazworth. “I’m saddened by what happened for many reasons. I’ve been with CP for over 8.5 years, made many friendships, and had lots of exciting opportunities along the way.”
You know what, I might have been wrong.
Trump may actually end up being good for Christianity in that he is helping to seperate the REAL Christians from the unethcial, self serving, Trump-supporting faux Christians.
