We've all seen the article last week from Christianity Today in which Mark Galli, who is Editor in Chief of the magazine, explained his reasoning (as flawed as it may have been) as to why President Trump should be removed from office.
Galli wrote, "But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral."
This article caused a lot of stir not only in the Republican realm of politics, but also in the Church body as well. In fact, I ended up getting in a mild debate with a pastor of a local church after he posted the article on his Facebook page supporting the ideas in the article. It wasn't just me either that spoke to him about it, many members of the church did as well.
For Galli to claim that the facts are "unambiguous" is CLEARLY false and Christianity Today should be hanging their heads for allowing such trash to be published.
As it turns out, actually wasn't happy with the article at all and now Galli is going to be finding himself another job because Christianity Today is letting him go.
According to True Pundit,
It looks like the plan was for Christianity Today’s editor to take on Donald Trump and then slide out the back door when the you know what hit the proverbial fan.
Or for editor-in-chief Mark Galli to burn down the city on his way out of the gates.
A very biblical ending.
After 30 years at Christianity Today — culminating in picking a fight with the President of the United States and angering Evangelicals in the process — the editor is now leaving the publication.
Chrstianity Today officials confirmed Galli will not be employed by publication after the holidays.
The magazine was founded by Billy Graham. His son, Franklin wrote on the incident. You can read his response below denouncing the article.
