Representative Adam Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican, warned that some Christian churches have become a "house of worship" to former President Donald Trump.

Kinzinger identifies as a protestant Christian but has previously discussed being condemned by conservative Christian family members over his opposition to the former president.

Kinzinger joined nine other House Republicans and all House Democrats in voting to impeach Trump last year for inciting his supporters to riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

"There are a number of churches that have basically become, you know, from a house of worship of Christ and of God to a house of worship of Donald Trump," Kinzinger said in the video.

When leaders refuse to stand up for truth and reject toxic division, we begin to replace God with idols. — Adam Kinzinger🇺🇦🇺🇸✌️ (@AdamKinzinger) June 17, 2022.

Kinzinger previously received a two-page letter signed by 11 Christian family members rebuking him for his opposition to Trump.

After the Capitol riot, Kinzinger urged Christian leaders to "admit their mistakes and lead their flocks out of darkness to truth.". »

In a park near the central northern village of Gualtieri, cyclists and hikers stop in curiosity to observe the Zibello, a 50-meter long (164 feet) barge that transported wood during the second world war but sank in 1943.

A barge dating back to World War II has re-emerged on the Po river in Gualtieri, Italy, Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

Vezzali was only partially surprised, though, as he knew that the lack of winter rain caused the river to reach record low levels. »

But getting there will require that the West exercise patient dedication to one outcome: a complete and total Ukrainian victory.

Ukraine has proved its mettle by achieving important victories in the battles of Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Kyiv, and Sumy, causing Putin’s blitzkrieg to fail spectacularly.

Instead of focusing on Putin’s feelings, the United States and Europe should focus on practical steps to help Ukraine prevail. »
