Christian Publisher Trots Out the ‘Boys Will be Boys’ Argument

Christian Publisher Trots Out the ‘Boys Will be Boys’ Argument October 8, 2018

Steve Strang, editor of Charisma magazine, has been driving the Trump train from the word go and he will back up absolutely anything Trump says or does. So it comes as no surprise that he’s more than happy to claim that even if Kavanaugh did exactly what he’s accused of, it’s just “nickel and dime” stuff that doesn’t matter.

There is an actual war going on,” Strang said. “It’s not just left and right, it’s not Republican and Democrat. I believe it’s really between good versus evil … I believe that it’s a spiritual struggle. As the Bible says, ‘We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers.’”…

“What we see now with this controversy over Judge Kavanaugh, who is so very qualified, they could find nothing to keep him from being confirmed,” he added. “They will stop at nothing, including lying. Not only that, but some of the antics that have gone on; leader after leader after leader gets on there and talks about how bad Judge Kavanaugh is. He’s denied these things, but even if they’re true, it was pretty nickel-and-dime stuff that high school kids do. Everybody on that committee probably did that kind of stuff when they were teenagers. I mean, it’s just kind of part of growing up.”

If this is a battle between good and evil and Strang is perfectly fine with attempted rape and is on the good side, put me firmly on the side of evil. What in the world would he tell his own daughter if two boys from her school shoved her into a room, locked the door, turned up the music so no one would hear, jumped on her and groped her under her clothes and tried to rip them off, and put their hand over her mouth so no one would hear her scream? “Oh honey, stop whining. Every boy does that, it’s just part of growing up. Now go do your homework.” This is the “good” side of the equation? Then evil is looking pretty damn good right now.
