    Well OK, Frank.

    Some of what you say in this Sharpton interview is interesting and you certainly appear both serious and sincere. But not two weeks before, you, yourself, revealed in your recent lecture at the University of Oklahoma, which you, yourself, posted here on this blog that these appearances of yours on MSNBC are all as much of a sham as anything you once did on the right wing lecture circuit back when you had given up on Evangelicalism and/or Republican right wing policies but hadn’t yet left the building because you were still trying to make a buck.

    Please find something more worthy of your talent and family’s good name than whoring yourself out like this just to try and sell a few measly copies of your books. I said that I’d have your back when you looked like you were turning away from what’s essentially intellectual prostitution. Now here I find you back out on the street still plying your “trade.”

    Lord have mercy! This is gonna be a longer reformation project than I had originally imagined.

    Hard to believe the son of Francis Schaeffer is discussing Planned Parenthood and dissing pro-life views as “bitterness” with Al Sharpton. My gag meter just went off the charts. Apparently Margaret Sanger’s genocidal leanings no longer mean anything, the disproportionate numbers of black babies killed no longer means anything, the late term fetuses Frank used claim to dig out of trash bins no longer mean anything, the women butchered by Gosnell and others no longer mean anything. The apple truly has fallen far from the tree
