Over 100 Christian leaders sign letter supporting impeachment inquiry

From Kentucky-

At a gathering of “Red Letter Christians” in Goldsboro, North Carolina, over 100 Christian leaders from across the country signed a letter supporting the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Under the #PrayForTruth hashtag, the statement calls on fellow Christians to support the inquiry as a search for the truth, and to pray for all the elected leaders involved in the inquiry.

The mission statement of Red Letter Christians says “Staying true to the foundation of combining Jesus and justice, Red Letter Christians mobilizes individuals into a movement of believers who live out Jesus’ counter-cultural teachings.” The organization was founded by Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne.

The signers of the letter include some well-known figures in Christian and social justice circles:
  • Rev. Dr. William Barber, II, Repairers of the Breach
  • Rev. Jennifer Butler, Faith in Public Life
  • Rev. Dr. Tony Campolo, Eastern University
