Trump Derangement Syndrome, Desperation Thinking, and Facing the Questions

Mostly, the sound and fury over Christianity Today’s editorial advocating President Trump’s removal from office seems to be following the now-familiar pattern: reaction aplenty, reflection—not so much.

This is a common tactic employed by many Trump supporters — go after the accuser rather than the accused." - Christian Post

Franklin Graham labels Trump opposition ‘demonic’; Rick Perry labels Trump ‘chosen one’

Peter Wehner: “There is no biblical or theological case to support the claim that critics of Donald Trump are under the spell of Satan. It is invented out of thin air, a shallow, wild, and reckless charge meant to be a conversation stopper” - Christian Post
