The Gospel Coalition softens slander against Kyle Rittenhouse

In a rare move, The Gospel Coalition has walked back a previous woke analysis made by one of its contributors, K. Edward Copeland that had slandered Kyle Rittenhouse. The initial slander had called him a mass shooter and compared him to Dylan Roof. The updated version of the article only compares him to Dylan Roof.

K. Edward Copeland’s initial article:

When armed mass shooters (Kyle Rittenhouse, Dylan Roof, etc.) are apprehended without incident, and unarmed black people are killed out of fear that they might be armed, we have a more insidious problem than “a few bad apples.” This thing is cultural, pervasive, and abominable.

The November 24th update:

When armed shooters (Kyle Rittenhouse, Dylan Roof, etc.) are apprehended without incident, and unarmed black people are killed out of fear that they might be armed, we have a more insidious problem than “a few bad apples.” This thing is cultural, pervasive, and abominable.

Colin Hansen, editor-in-chief of The Gospel Coalition posted this statement in regards to the update:

Editors’ note: 

UPDATE 11/24/21: Subsequent information has revealed that Jacob Blake was armed with a knife. Also, an earlier version of this article referred to Kyle Rittenhouse as a “mass” shooter. I regret these editorial oversights. Collin Hansen, editor in chief, The Gospel Coalition

The updated version does not change the slanderous comparison made by Copeland. It only softens the rhetoric. This update came three days after Evangelical Dark Web called on Kyle Rittenhouse to sue The Gospel Coalition for libel.
