    From Franklin Graham: My Response to Christianity Today: Christianity Today released an editorial stating that President Trump should be removed from office—and they invoked my father’s name (I suppose to try to bring legitimacy to their statements), so I feel it is important for me to respond.

The letters urged officials to find a "more inclusive and honorable" religious leader to take his place. A spokesman for Graham, son of...
