Carol Swain Commentary: Mark Galli’s Unchristian Attack on President Trump from an Evangelical Perspective

Carol Swain Commentary: Mark Galli’s Unchristian Attack on President Trump from an Evangelical Perspective
| PentecostalTheology.com

Leonard J Ransil:

On the website below is a rebuttal by Carol Swain entitled Mark Galli’s Unchristian Attack on President Trump from an Evangelical Perspective, offered as a follow up to my lead article. I have also included a listing of her credentials below. Though published on December 23, 2019, I think it constructively contributes to this most important and relevant discussion facing our nation.

In her article she also makes mention of rebuttals by other believers such as historian Jim Garlow, Franklin Graham, Pastor Jentezen Franklin, Everett Piper, Edward Bauer, and Dr. James Dobson – which I list again here for your convenience. Obviously, this is an ongoing debate that will continue to at least the election in November. Leonard J. Ransil

Professor Swain earned a magna cum laude B.A. in criminal justice from Roanoke College and a master’s degree in political science from Virginia Tech. While an undergraduate at Roanoke College, she organized a scholarship fund for black students that by 2002 had an endowment of $350,000. She finished a Ph.D. in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1989. In 2000, she earned a Master of Legal Studies from Yale Law School. She received tenure as an associate professor of politics and public policy at Princeton University. From 1999 to 2017, she taught political science and law at Vanderbilt University. She retired from her post at Vanderbilt in 2017.
Her first academic book, Black Faces, Black Interests: The Representation of African Americans in Congress, was published by Harvard University Press in 1993. The book was cited by Anthony Kennedy and Sandra Day O’Connor, two Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. It was the recipient of the D.B. Hardeman Prize as well as the American Political Science Association’s Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award.

    Thank you Ray and Troy for your help in posting the above URL of an on-line article by Carol Swain who offers a rebuttal to the anti-Trump article in Christianity Today posted on this site before Christmas. Also above is a summary of professor Swain’s impressive credentials.

    To repeat what I wrote above: “In her article she also makes mention of rebuttals by other believers such as historian Jim Garlow, Franklin Graham, Pastor Jentezen Franklin, Everett Piper, Edward Bauer, and Dr. James Dobson – which I list again here for your convenience” – in case you want to read why they each support president Trump, despite his obvious failings.

    One thing is for sure, he is honest enough to boldly declare his thoughts and opinions for all to see and critique. Consequently, the Leftists, who have hijacked the Democratic Party, have never been as challenged and exposed by such a warrior before. And as he shines the light on them, we see how Dark their anti-American, Socialistic agenda really is.

    Since the Mainstream Media will never list ANY of president Trump’s amazing accomplishments over the last three years, here is one of many sites that do. Let his actions speak louder to you than his rabble-rousing rhetoric. http://www.magapill.com/

      Leonard J. Ransil “Actions speak louder than words.” Thanks for posting this archive page of the President’s many accomplishments. Quite impressive – a thorough list. Mostly unarguably positive. Some, like deregulation, etc., may be interpreted negatively, but some research into the reasoning invariable shows these to be positives.

      Here is a quote from that website, following the thorough list:

      “The Mainstream Media’s news outlets have completely ignored President Trump’s accomplishments and all of the positive things he has achieved while in office. They’ve instead decided to focus all of their time and effort waging a war against President Trump, his supporters and the MAGA agenda.

      “Donald J. Trump has achieved more for America in 3 years than any other President in history. It really makes you wonder if past presidents have even been trying at all!”

    Ray E Horton can ANYONE pls tell me what is the point of this anecdote? It certainly has NO theological value for the group While I understand the intro to her article, this is 3 months late response Its all gone by now While I didnt take sides in the CT issue as I believe they are mostly fake news William DeArteaga I do remember Jentzen renouncing Trump on those countries and Dobson warning evangelicals against Trump – what did I miss ? http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/thank-you-rev-jentezen-franklin/

      “Three-months late? Evangelical response to the President is an ongoing issue, and will be through the time of the elections, at least.

      Ray E Horton that being true (which I am neither nor sure that it is either way) the text is partial neither time sensitive nor theological The professor’s article linked was a cheap shot playing the race card – granted played very well BUT YET to see anything theological from this poster SO even if Trump is SO great what is it to the evangelical vote? James P Bowers Nelson Banuchi I still feel William DeArteaga explained it so much better theologically in his article http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/donald-the-dishonorable-on-the-spiritual-damage-of-the-trump-presidency/

      Troy Day I very much disagree. How was this article a cheap-shot or non-theological any more than other articles that have been posted here? Or is it that you just disagree politically. I though you were looking for balance, the reason you asked for a pre-state-of-the-union article from the pro-Trump position. I see this as no different.

      Ray E Horton I read it over and over but still NO theological value Once again I would like to see of theological interpretation from the poster Otherwise is just talk

      Troy Day Guess I need a better understanding of just what you mean by “theological interpretation” and “theological value.” I personally have seen little I could relate to theology in the CT Galli article, or other follow-ups here.
