Christian Resistance To Trump Is Growing

Source: Huffington Post

As of yet, only one pastor has resigned from Trump’s evangelical council, and this Tuesday, many evangelical pastors signed the Nashville Statement, which in its fifteen articles condemn the LGBTQ lifestyle as sinful and any Christian who supports the LGBTQ community as “an essential departure from Christian faithfulness and witness.” While it might seem that white, conservative evangelicals are gaining momentum under Trump, there is a growing number of pastors, Christian academics, artists, and leaders who are speaking out against racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, and xenophobia. Just this past Monday, the One Thousand Ministers March for Justice, an interfaith rally, took to the streets of Washington D. C. to oppose “moral corrosion of the country that they think has become increasingly evident under President Trump’s White House.” Below are just a few Twitter profiles of different Christian activists so you find them and follow their messages of love, equality, grace, and inclusion that they are promoting.
