VIDEO: “Christian Post” Editor Quits Over Pro-Trump Editorial

Napp Nazworth, editor of the Christian Post has resigned over his publication’s pro-Trump editorial going against Christianity Today’s call for President Trump’s removal from office.

Per CNN, Nazworth said Thursday he had “no other choice” but to resign from his job after the Christian news website issued a strong editorial supporting President Donald Trump.

“When I was told this would be the position of the paper, of the news site, I said that’s not something I can support,” Napp Nazworth, who announced on Monday that he had resigned from The Christian Post, told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.”

Nazworth’s resignation came amid a heated debate among evangelicals about Trump, who enjoys overwhelming support from the community despite his controversial public behavior and comments.

The controversy began last week, when a rival publication, Christianity Today, published an op-ed that called Trump morally unfit for office and called for his removal. In response, The Christian Post denounced the article, insisting that Trump’s support among evangelicals remains strong and slamming the impeachment process — arguing that a “government of elites” has compromised constitutional due process.
