THE Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States, the Most Revd Michael Curry, has called for the immediate removal of President Trump from office after the President’s public comments — widely regarded as incitement — before and during a violent attack on the Capitol. Five people died (Comment, News, 7 January).
After repeatedly alleging that the election had been “stolen”, President Trump told a crowd rallying south of the White House to “walk down to the Capitol,” and said: “You will never take back our country with weakness.” Bishop Curry added his name to an open letter from church leaders in the United States to Vice-President Mike Pence, urging him to remove the President at once. Their letter reads: “For the good of the nation, so that we might end the current horror and prepare the way for binding up the nation’s wounds, we, as leaders of the member communions of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA, believe the time has come for the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, to resign his position immediately. If he is unwilling to resign, we urge you to exercise the options provided by our democratic system.”
Bishop Curry had described the violence as a coup attempt. In a video message to the Episcopal Church, he urged people to choose community over chaos. “In the moment of a national crisis, a moment of great danger . . . a people must decide, ‘Who shall we be?’” he said. On Wednesday, as expected, Vice-President Pence rejected demands to enact the 25th Amendment, which would have removed the President immediately. The House of Representatives, however, was due to vote for an unprecedented second time on a motion to impeach President Trump. If the vote was carried, as predicted, then the Senate would hold a trial to determine his guilt.
Impeachment would block Mr Trump from running for office ever again.
