A group of nearly 200 conservative evangelical leaders sent a letter Sunday rebuking a Christianity Today editorial that called for President Trump's removal, the AP reports.

Mark Galli, editor in chief of Christianity Today, is "surprised by the ethical naïveté" of Trump supporters' response to his editorial, calling for the president to be removed from office, he told the New York Times on Thursday.

What he's saying: "There does seem to be widespread ignorance — that is the best word I can come up with — of the gravity of Trump’s moral failings. Some evangelicals will acknowledge he had a problem with adultery, but now they consider that a thing of the past."

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 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.
