1. Christianity Today's change of heart should not be ignored

No, they’re not our friends. No, we often (and occasionally vehemently) disagree with them on many issues. But if even THEY have FINALLY had an Epiphany about the character of Donald Trump and the nature of his administration, I think it’s heartening and worth noting.

And who knows? Their editorial change-of-heart might inspire several thousand Evangelicals to either consider voting Democratic or simply stay home, something not to be dismissed considering how narrowly the Good Guys narrowly lost several swing states in 2016.
