The Christian Post reports:
Russell Moore, a prominent theologian and president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, has called on President Donald Trump to resign from office after some of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday.
“Mr. President, people are dead,” Moore wrote in response to Trump’s Friday tweet. “The Capitol is ransacked. There are 12 dangerous days for our country left. Could you please step down and let our country heal?”
Moore also condemned the “mobs of people” who shouted “traitor” at Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., at Reagan National Airport and the threats against Vice President Mike Pence for “carrying out his constitutional duties” and not objecting to the certification of electoral votes for the 2020 presidential election.
Read the full article. Of note, Moore is a signatory to the 2017 Nashville Statement, which effectively declares that fucking is only for straight people and that Jesus hates you if you don’t hate gays. The statement is also signed by Tony Perkins and other notorious haters.
Mr. President, people are dead. The Capitol is ransacked. There are 12 dangerous days for our country left.
Could you please step down and let our country heal? https://t.co/wP3niITQv6
