Sojourners magazine founder, president and editor-in-chief, Jim Wallis, a progressive evangelical, heaped praise on the lone Republican senator to vote to convict the president, noting the role faith played in Romney's decision.

"I am thankful for Senator Mitt Romney’s courageous decision to be the first Senator ever to vote to impeach a President from his own party by saying, 'I take an oath before God as enormously consequential.' And the long poignant pause when he spoke about his faith in the Senate," Wallis wrote on Twitter Wednesday.
