The article in Christianity Today urging Trump's removal from office on moral grounds: 
https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/december-web-only/trump-should-be-removed-from-office.html

For too long, Democrats have ceded Christianity to the Republican party.  The Republicans claim to be more Christian because they oppose abortion, approve of public funding for parochial schools, back Israel, and support "religious liberty"—to impose their beliefs on everyone.  Often this is about enforcing female chastity by making birth control harder to get, or pressuring school children via school prayer and the like.  But didn't Jesus urge welcoming the stranger, feeding the hungry, healing the sick, and giving to the poor?  Is imprisoning refugee children at the border and separating them from their parents Christian?  Is turning our backs on our own poor Christian?  Did not Jesus chase the money changers out of the temple, rather than embrace and cater to the rich at the expense of the poor?  We need to be asking these questions more.
