Longtime Trump hater Rev. Al Sharpton has just lashed out at Christians who support our president.
Responding to Christianity Today’s controversial piece arguing for Trump to be removed from office, which earned the rebuke of Franklin Graham and many other evangelical leaders, Sharpton claimed that Christian Trump supporters would “sell Jesus out” to help a “shameless conman.”
He also added pro-Trump evangelicals are sacrificing “the soul of the church” and “bargaining and selling your soul for some judicial appointments.”

Some Twitter users are holding up a mirror to Al Sharpton in response to his comments:
Fox News has more on what Al Sharpton had to say:
Sharpton went on to argue that the editorial is asking evangelicals if they are "bargaining and selling your soul for some judicial appointments" while sacrificing "the soul of the church."
"I think this is a devastating blow," the MSNBC host continued. "The reason they're so offended is it's exposing all of them that they would take this shameless conman over the principles that they're preaching in the holy season as we celebrate Jesus. They would sell Jesus out if they felt they could get something from it is the inference he is saying from the editorial and that's sad on many levels.
Over the weekend, nearly 200 evangelical leaders condemned the magazine's editorial, which “offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations," they wrote to the magazine's president.

Reverend Al Sharpton, one of the left's favorite figures, appeared on MSNBC on Monday to discuss Christianity Today's editorial calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment. The editorial, written by editor-in-chief Mark Galli, focused on Trump's character and personality, not necessarily his actions, as a reason to back impeachment.
Although the website was founded by prominent evangelist Billy Graham, the Graham family has not been involved in the publication in many years. In fact, Graham's son, Franklin, came to Trump's defense, saying his father would be "disappointed" in what the publication has become. He also made it very clear that the elder Graham voted for Trump and would be proud of the successes the president has had thus far.
Of course, lefties instantly clung the editorial, saying Galli's take is pure proof that evangelicals could not possibly support President Trump. Sharpton ran with that take during the MSNBC segment.
"You've given up the soul of the church. What do we stand for? And I think it's a devastating blow and this is a magazine that was founded by Billy Graham. They also supported the impeachment of Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton so why all of a sudden is it so controversial with these leaders that they would come for the impeachment of Donald Trump?" Sharpton asked. "When they did it to Bill Clinton the evangelical leaders weren't insulted. When they did it to Richard Nixon they weren't."
Sharpton made a far-fetched claim that evangelicals are upset with the editorial because it "exposes" them for supporting Trump. But, even more shocking, Sharpton claimed Christians would "sell Jesus out" if they could benefit from it.
