posted on November 16, 2021

Ben Smith of The New York Times reports that Marvin Olasky, editor of the Christian media organization World, has resigned. Olasky has faced pressure from World’s board in recent years, including over his criticism of former President Trump. At the helm since 1994, Olasky dubbed his editorial style “biblical objectivity,” which he defines as an approach that requires speaking out on issues about which the Bible gives guidance.
