Michael Horton, a well-known theologian in Reformed-*ish* Evangelical circles and host of the popular podcast, White Horse Inn, in 2020, denounced support for Donald Trump as “The Cult of Christian Trumpism” in a piece at The Gospel Coalition.
Horton has been a highly-esteemed theologian and his Systematic Theology on the Christian Faith has been read by many, including this author. But, sadly, Horton has been increasingly embracing the pseudoreality of the woke movement and more over the last few years.
Here is the wider context of the clip that Harris covers where Michael Horton brings on a guest who makes the claim that pastors who are preaching against the LGBTQ movement are actually causing suicides. Horton goes on to seemingly agree with him and suggests to pastors not to treat homosexuality differently than other sins because of this.
Below, my friend Jon Harris captured this clip and gave a superb commentary that I agree with him wholeheartedly.
That clip above is from this podcast:
*Correction, a previous version of this article ascribed the words to Michael Horton, but these words were from one of Horton’s cohosts where Horton then seemed to agree with him.
