Senior editors of a prominent Christian publication on Monday voiced their opposition to Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump.
The Christian Post editorial said the billionaire businessman does not represent Christian values, citing his refusal to disavow the Ku Klux Klan in an interview on Sunday and his claim that he has never sought forgiveness for his sins.
The newspaper called Trump a “misogynist and a philanderer,” and claimed that he “demeans women and minorities.”
“While Christians have been guilty of all of these,” it read, “we, unlike Trump, acknowledge our sins, ask for forgiveness and seek restitution with the aid of the Holy Spirit and our community of believers.”
The Post also took exception to Trump’s promise that he would “open up” libel laws in order to sue newspapers that criticize him.
