CLEVELAND -- The Christian Post, an online publication oriented toward America's evangelical community, has broken with its tradition of remaining out of US politics to oppose the candidacy of Donald Trump.

The outlet, founded in 2000, said it was making an exception to its rule "because Trump is exceptionally bad and claims to speak for and represent the interests of evangelicals.Its senior editors encouraged readers to "back away" from the Republican presidential nominee. "We feel compelled by our moral responsibility to our readers to make clear that Donald Trump does not represent the interests of evangelicals and would be a dangerous leader for our country."

They note he has never repented sin or asked for forgiveness– a "non-negotiable" Christian activity– and conclude he is a chameleon-like "misogynist and philanderer" who "cannot possibly" deliver on his promises.
