Mark Galli, the editor in chief of the evangelical magazine Christianity Today, said on Sunday that while the magazine has lost some subscribers after publishing an op-ed calling for Trump’s removal from office, they’ve seen many more new subscribers.
“A stereotypical response is ‘thank you, thank you, thank you’ with a string of a hundred exclamation points — ‘you’ve said what I’ve been thinking but haven’t been able to articulate, I’m not crazy,‘” said Galli, according to CNBC, “We have lost subscribers but we’ve had 3 times as many people start to subscribe.”
Galli made similar remarks on the same network to Ali Velshi.
Meanwhile, more than 100 evangelicals sent a raging letter to the magazine on Sunday, accusing it of attacking their “Christian witness.”
TIME reports: “‘Your editorial offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations,’ the evangelicals wrote to the magazine’s president, Timothy Dalrymple.The new offensive from the group of prominent evangelicals, including multiple members of Trump’s evangelical advisory board, signals a lingering awareness by the president’s backers that any meaningful crack in his longtime support from that segment of the Christian community could prove perilous for his reelection hopes.”
