Church Times reports that, The Archbishop of Wales, the Most Revd John Davies, has urged the United States to remove the outgoing President Donald Trump from power before the inauguration of Joe Biden on 20 January, citing “gross, obvious, and anti-democratic” behaviour.
The 25th Amendment allows a majority of a body such as Congress to declare the president “unable to discharge the powers and duties” of their office in a written declaration. Archbishop Davies made the call in response to the storming of the US Capitol in Washington by Trump supporters on Wednesday which ended in violence. Four people were killed in the rioting.
The attack took place as Congress was meeting to certify the votes of the Electoral College and confirm President-elect Mr Biden’s victory, which Mr Trump and a Republican faction in Congress have sought to overturn on false grounds. Mr Trump had encouraged the protests in an attempt to overturn his defeat in the presidential election.
Archbishop Davies said on Thursday: “For a number of years, the President of the United States has shown himself, and has been shown by others, to be a person of questionable morals, judgement, and wisdom. He has been given to inflammatory rhetoric and intemperate, prejudicial public statements.
“Now, in recent days, he has shown himself to be possessed of a shameful self-image which, he evidently believes, permits him to ignore the democratic processes of his country and the democratically expressed will of its people. It is with such a mindset and self-image that he chose, yesterday, to incite others to engage in behaviour which has resulted in mayhem, injury, and death at the Capitol. Read more …
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
