On December 19th, my birthday, Christianity Today, one of the flagship evangelical magazines, published an editorial “Trump Should Be Removed from Office” by Mark Galli, CT’s editor in chief, which has set the political evangelical world on fire. Trump has angrily Tweeted about the editorial and evangelicals on both sides have been eager to join their voice to the chorus.
Here are some representative articles from the fray:
“How Trump Lost an Evangelical Stalwart” by Emma Green in The Atlantic.
“Christianity Today does not speak for most evangelical Christians with call for Trump removal” by Jenna Ellis in the Washington Examiner.
“Why I Stand by 45” by Jentezen Franklin in The Christian Post.
“Evangelical Elites Are Out Of Touch” by Carl R. Trueman in First Things.
“Is Mark Galli an ‘Evangelical Elite?’ Is He ‘Out of Touch?'” by John Fea in The Way of Improvement Leads Home.

“The Flag in the Whirlwind: An Update from CT’s President” by Timothy Dalrymple in Christianity Today.
“Opinion: What took Christianity Today so long to confront Trump?” by Randall Balmer in the Los Angeles Times.
