The rest of the Christianity Today story

Christianity Today made news this week by calling for the cancellation of the 2016 presidential election by removing President Donald John Trump from office. While Marxists were glee-bitten, the full story is one of deception.

The editorial was a one-fingered salute on the way out by Mark Galli, 67, who announced his retirement in October as the publication's editor-in-chief.

The news media portrayed Galli's opinion as reflecting evangelical conservatives.

That is a lie. Galli admitted that President Donald John Trump was correct in calling Christianity Today a far left magazine.

President Trump tweeted, "A far left magazine, or very progressive, as some would call it, which has been doing poorly and hasn’t been involved with the Billy Graham family for many years, Christianity Today, knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President. No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading CT again!"

Galli told CNN, "I don't have any imaginations that my editorial is going to shift their views on this matter. The fact of the matter is that Christianity Today is not read by Christians on the far right, by evangelicals on the far right. So, they're going to be as dismissive of the magazine as President Trump has shown to be."

In his editorial, Galli invoked Billy Graham, but the late minister's son, Franklin Graham, said the family long ago disassociated itself from the magazine his father founded in 1956.

NPR gushed over Galli, and gave him a marshmallow-soft interview.

Sometimes, those are the most dangerous because the subject goes unchallenged, which turns into enough rope to hang himself.

Galli told NPR, "It's like a wife who has a husband who's verbally abusive, but he's still a good provider, he's still a good father to his children. She might put up with that and say, 'On the one hand, yeah, he's got a bad temper. On the other hand, he's a great dad and he's a good provider.'

"When that husband begins to physically abuse the wife and actually become physically dangerous, that doesn't balance the scale anymore. And now the real issue is, should this man be in the house or not? And most of us would say he needs to be out of the house."

Is this man for real?

Galli managed not only to malign the president but to malign domestic violence victims.

But he has had his moment in the sun. He can now become the media's pet Christian who will turn on Christians just like John Kasich and Jeff Flake dump on Republicans.
