Evangelical omission

Editor News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: The NZ Herald reporter Claire Trevett – whose work has previously been questioned by M+AD – did another slack job in her backgrounder this morning on new National Party wannabe Christopher (“call me Chris”) Luxon.

She listed all his achievements – except the one that arguably matters most of all.

The man is a self-confessed “evangelical Christian” – a sect that maintains the belief that the “essence of the Gospel consists of the doctrine of salvation by grace, solely through faith in Jesus’s atonement” (Wikipedia).

In other words, he’s a Trump clone – conservative, climate-change denyer, and fun policeman.
