Christian Post journalist resigns over planned editorial against Christianity Today

Christian Post journalist Napp Nazworth left the company Monday over plans to publish a pro-President Trump editorial striking at Christianity Today for rebuking the administration, the Washington Post reports.

The big picture: An op-ed by Christianity Today editor-in-chief Mark Galli brought attention to a split among Evangelical Christians. The piece called for Trump's removal despite his continued Evangelical support, and argued that Christians can no longer make the trade-off of accepting an "immoral" president in order to protect pro-life policies.

  • Christianity Today President Timothy Dalrymple says the company has seen a net-positive gain in subscribers following the editorial.

What they're saying: Nazworth, an editorial editor, had written earlier this year that "Evangelicals who rationalize Donald Trump's misbehavior are sacrificing their moral authority at the altar of politics."

  • Nazworth says he is "shocked" to see the Christian Post take this path. He warned the publication that penning the piece would put them firmly on "team Trump."
  • The journalist says does not know what he will do next.
