A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Tuesday, July 20, 2004 Letters to Nick Kristof: Today's New York Times has three letters responding to Kristof's Saturday column (fisked below). It should come as no surprise that (as is the Times' habit) they all concur with Kristof's assessment of evangelical Christians.
The most galling statement comes from the Rev. G. Patrick Thompson, who recalled something his New Testament professor said in at his unnamed seminary.
"Jesus is not coming back, people."
I wonder what seminary this was. Question: Do you have to be a Christian to teach the New Testament at a seminary?
Nope. It's why so many of us are bailing out on liberal "Christianity."
