This morning John Shelby Spong was kind enough to write and send me this:
John Shore is a gadfly, calling the Christian Church everywhere to act the way it says it believes about love and justice, which of course makes him an uncomfortable presence in those churches that do not like to be forced to face reality. So were the prophets of old. So was Jesus of Nazareth.
And he wrote what he did knowing of my 16-point theological expression—the first point of which I imagine caused the great progressive lion to roll his eyes.
