The “method” is always the same. Bart isn’t a Christian anymore so we need to blame his parents (while pretending not to) and improve the way we indoctrinate our kids lest they turn out like Bart or worse yet, like Frank Schaeffer.
To do that the first thing we have to do is lie about them, dismiss the backsliders and make sure everyone avoids their books too, while praying for them, of course.
Christianity Today postures as a forward thinking publication. They are not. They’re the disgusting reactionaries of Bob Jones ilk, just dressed better.
Take the letter the CT editor wrote to President Obama asking to be exempted from laws to protect gay men and women from discrimination. And now it’s war (in the name of “love” of course) on Bart Campolo and other people who don’t drink the evangelical Cool-Aid.
So CT just published what is really an attack on Peggy, Tony and Bart Campolo in the usual paranoid victimhood-style of the magazine. Shorthand “they” are after your children!
