The fallout from the explosive Robert Morris sexual abuse scandal continues to ripple across the Christian world, as Daystar Television announced they are removing all programming featuring Morris effective immediately.

In a post made on X (formerly Twitter), Daystar expressed their grief at the situation, as well as their decision to separate from Morris in totality.

“We are deeply grieved and saddened by the recent and very serious allegations against Pastor Robert Morris involving the sexual abuse of a 12-year-old minor. In light of these events and a recently released statement by Gateway’s Elders, Daystar’s leadership has made the decision to remove all of Pastor Robert Morris’ programming from our broadcasting schedule,” the statement reads.

“Daystar unequivocally condemns the actions described in these allegations and remains committed to upholding biblical values as outlined in the Word of God.

“As we navigate through this challenging situation, we extend our heartfelt support and prayers to all those impacted,” the post concludes.

Daystar is not the only major organization to remove Morris after his sexual abuse of a 12-year-old girl (at the time), Cindy Clemishire, came to light.

The Evangelical Executive Advisory Board for former President Donald Trump has also removed Morris from his role in the group.

As reported by The Christian Post, “Morris’ exclusion from the former president’s powerful group of Evangelical backers comes as current and former Texas politicians are speaking out after 54-year-old grandmother Cindy Clemishire reported that the megachurch pastor began sexually abusing her on Dec. 25, 1982, when she was just 12 years old, and continued with the abuse for four-and-a-half years after that.”

This shocking news has also drawn the outrage of several Texas politicians who are incensed at the laws in place which prevent prosecution of Morris due to statute of limitations restrictions.

“There must be no safe haven or security for anyone who abuses a child in Texas,” says State Rep. Jeff Leach, R-Plano, to GazzetteXtra.

“To that end, the Texas Legislature must continue to improve our laws protecting and ensuring justice for victims of childhood sexual abuse and holding criminals and those who aid them responsible. Texas should be leading in this area, and as the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and a longtime advocate for victims and their families I intend to lock arms with fellow lawmakers to do just that.”
