Almost one month ago, Mark Galli, editor of Christianity Today wrote, “Trump Should Be Removed from Office,” prompting some of us to shout, then subscribe. I expect my first copy in “6-8 weeks.”
Some early reporting made it sound like the magazine would lose its shirt, Mark Galli his soul, along with all those who backed him. As for me and my tribe, Christianity Today’s decision to PRINT, sent ripples of hope, and not just to my generation.
To those who believe Trump’s done more good than harm, consider Galli’s words,
“None of the president’s positives can balance the moral and political danger we face under a leader of such grossly immoral character.” Mark Galli challenged all who identify as Christians “to remember who we are and whom we serve.”
In the long run, it’s not about ratings or bottom lines but doing the right thing for the right reasons. Truth has consequences, not all bad.
While talking risky business, I recommend Bryan Stevenson’s film, Just Mercy.
He’s one of my heroes, thanks to my granddaughter, Lily, who urged me several years ago to read, Just Mercy.
In light of decisions made during Trump’s presidency, consider these words from Bryan Stevenson,
“You ultimately judge the civility of society not by how it treats the rich, the powerful, the protected and the highly esteemed, but by how it treats the poor, the disfavored and the disadvantaged.” Desmond Tutu calls Bryan Stevenson, “America’s Mandela.”
Monday we’ll celebrate Martin Luther King Day, today I honor two other men, both Christians, who’ve chosen to pursue Truth with consequences through print or in courtrooms.
As Bryan said, “Somebody has to stand when other people are sitting. Somebody has to speak when other people are quiet.”
