This is crossing the line.
According to Breitbart News, during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network host Al Sharpton offered further reaction to Christianity Today Mark Galli’s editorial calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment to proceed on moral grounds.
According to Sharpton, his interpretation of the Christianity Today piece was that evangelical leaders backing Trump “would sell Jesus out” in exchange for something.
“I think it’s a devastating blow,” Sharpton said. “This is a magazine, Mika, that was founded by Billy Graham. They also supported the impeachment of Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. So why all of a sudden is it so controversial with these leaders that they would come for the impeachment of Donald Trump when they did it to Bill Clinton?”
He continued, “The evangelical leaders weren’t insulted. When they did it to Richard Nixon, they weren’t. The reason they’re so offended is it’s exposing all of them that they would take the shameless conman over the principles that they’re preaching in the holy season as we celebrate Jesus.”
“They would sell Jesus out if they felt they could get something from it is the inference he’s saying from his editorial. And that’s sad on many levels.” You can read the full article here.
