Evangelical Leader Resigns in Protest of Donald Trump

As Donald Trump has made increasingly racist statements over the past week about the Charlottesville white supremacist terrorist attack, many business leaders and public figures have resigned from Trump’s committees and advisory boards in protest. So many CEOs quit Trump’s manufacturing board that it had to be shut down. Then, everyone on his arts committee resigned. Now a member of Trump’s evangelical council has resigned as well.

PRESIDENT’S EVANGELICAL ADVISORY BOARD

It’s staggering that Donald Trump even has something called a “President’s Evangelical Advisory Board” as the separation of church and state raises a few red flags. But nonetheless, such an entity exists within Trump’s administration. And as of today, it’s short a member. Pastor A. R. Bernard‏ used his Twitter page to announce his resignation from the council today, posting the following Pastor A. R. Bernardng message in the process:

 

“In a social and political climate such as ours, it often takes a gathering of unlikely individuals to shape the future of our nation on issues of faith and inner-city initiatives. I was willing to be one of those unlikely individuals, and that is why I agreed to serve on the President’s Evangelical Advisory Board. However, it became obvious that there was a deepening conflict in values between myself and the administration. I quietly stepped away from the Board several months ago, and submitted my letter of formal resignation as of Tues. Aug. 15, 2017.”
