“Graham was joined by toughly 200 evangelical leaders** who denounced the editorial, writing a letter which stated, “Your editorial offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations.”
(Hank Berrien – Daily Wire) On Sunday, after nationwide controversy erupted over their editorial last Thursday from their editor-in-chief calling for the removal of President Trump, Christianity Today doubled down on its criticism of President Trump in another editorial, this time from the magazine’s president, Timothy Dalrymple.
In a piece titled, “The Flag in the Whirlwind: An Update from CT’s President: Why our editor in chief spoke out against Trump, and why the conversation must continue,” Dalrymple commenced by adumbrating the disparate responses to the original editorial, including those who read the editorial “with tears in their eyes, sharing it with children who have wandered from the faith, rejoicing that at last someone was articulating what they felt in their hearts … Stay strong, they told us, knowing we were about to reap the whirlwind,” and those who “felt incensed and insulted. These readers felt the editorial engaged in character assassination, or maligned a broad swath of our fellow evangelicals, or revealed that we prefer the Democrats to a President who has done a lot of good for causes we all care about.”
