Christian theologian John Piper has made a career out of saying whatever nonsense comes to his mind, wrapping it in biblical phrases, and having his acolytes tell him he’s a brilliant preacher.
His latest rant is addressed to a reader who asks him, “Pastor John, what would you say to a Christian who watches the cable TV show Game of Thrones?”
Piper’s answer, not surprisingly, is to remind Christians never to watch the show. But not because of the violence. Even though beheadings are commonplace and the killings seem to get more imaginative and graphic with each successive episode, Piper’s problem is the nudity.
