Ever since U.S. President Donald Trump became just the third president in the history of the republic to be impeached by the House of Representatives, he has been even more incensed than usual.
To rub salt in that very wide, gaping wound, Evangelical magazine Christianity Today published a scathing op-ed by Editor-in-Chief Mark Galli, in which the publication officially called for Trump’s removal from office.
This was a significant blow, because the magazine was founded by none other than the late Billy Graham, and Trump is counting on his white Evangelical base of support in order to have a shot at reelection.
All of that aside, there seems to have been another casualty of the House’s decision to impeach Trump: his church attendance.
A new report has emerged that seems to link Trump’s absence at his usual haunt, Bethesda-By-the-Sea, an Episcopalian church in Palm Beach, FL, on Christmas Eve to Christianity Today’s writings regarding his humiliating impeachment.
The Palm Beach Post says of the matter:
“On Christmas Eve, six days after a prominent evangelical magazine published a blistering editorial calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from office, the president and first lady ditched services at the liberal church in Palm Beach where they were married and headed to a conservative Baptist-affiliated church.”
The Palm Beach Post also went on to point out that Bethesda-By-the-Sea is a shining beacon of social justice light in the wake of the cruelty of the Trump Administration’s policies.
Perhaps he and his family realized that they are not welcome; after all, that church and all it stands for flies in the fact of what Trump is doing:
“Bethesda-by-the-Sea, a towering Gothic revival style church surrounded by a courtyard and lavish gardens, has long championed liberal and social justice causes. The church was among the first to conduct gay marriages and has condemned the administration’s decision to reduce the number of refugees and allow states and local governments to reject refugees.”
Whether it was Christianity Today’s impeachment support or the church’s liberal leanings, one thing is clear: All of this upheaval is really getting to Trump, and we can be sure to expect more meltdowns via Twitter as head further into the impeachment trial and the 2020 race for the White House.
