You might remember how in December of 2019, then-editor (now resigned) of Christianity Today ran an editorial calling for Donald Trump to be impeached. The incident made international headlines, and Pulpit & Pen reminded you that Christianity Today is a liberal rag magazine and that it’s been hauling water for George Soros for years.
Mark Galli, the former CT editor in question, has contributed to a book entitled, Still Evangelical-Insiders Reconsider Political, Social, and Theological Meaning.
Galli wrote some absolutely amazing words in chapter 8 with a rare kind of arrogance that’s spectacularly self-absorbed.
I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian who voted for Trump. I describe evangelicals like me as ‘elite’ evangelicals …
Get this. A whopping 81% of evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in 2016. Evangelicals constitute 24% of the U.S. population and 59% of them voted. That’s tens of millions of evangelicals who voted for Trump and the former editor of an evangelical publication says he doesn’t know a single one of them.
It’s not cultured or sophisticated to say you don’t know a single person from a voting demographic that makes up half the United States. It’s backwoods, sheltered, and unlearned. What kind of inbred, cross-eyed backwater does Galli live in that he hasn’t met any of his publication’s target audience? How did he maintain his job for so long when his head is buried so deeply where it does not belong?
Furthermore, what kind of person self-identifies as “elite”? Mercy sakes. I bet he wears a fedora and maybe a monocle.
He goes on…
…and this class of evangelicals has discovered that we have family members so different they seem like aliens in our midst. These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently a lot of them don’t), they are blue-collar jobs or entry-level work. They don’t write books or give speeches; they don’t attend conferences of evangelicals for social justice or evangelicals for immigration reform. They are deeply suspicious of mainstream media.
There you have it, you mouth-breathing neanderthalic hillbillies. Mark Galli is surprised you can read, let alone drive, let alone follow your GPS to a voting booth. You’re a bunch of unlearned, moronic clown-hats who don’t go to “conferences of evangelicals for social justice” (lol). Now get a job, losers.
He might as well have called us a basket of deplorables.
