N.T. Wright: A Follow-Up

image

I'm still getting interesting responses to the post on N.T. Wright and marriage equality that I wrote a couple of weeks ago. N.T. Wright fans can get vicious, y'all. I don't think I've ever gotten death threats from Nazi sympathizers on here before (and I've had my blog linked both to Reddit Men's Rights, and Douglas Wilson's blog, so that's saying something).
