Caitlyn Jenner calls the question on Christian anthropology

Shift or Control

Emma Green at The Atlantic published an excellent summary of the negative--and revolting--reactions from conservative Christians that we have have become familiar with over the past few days, from the hateful rhetoric of Matt Walsh* to the disturbingly rapey comments of Presidential candidate (I know!)
