Good short post by Denny Burk, with a very helpful link to a passage from The Christians as the Romans Saw Them by Robert Louis Wilken.
In his opening, Denny says:
In his most recent column for The New York Times, Charles Blow argues that the Replublican Party is manipulating the benighted convictions of Christians for political purposes. Blow accuses the GOP of manufacturing a war on Christians in a cynical attempt to keep its base riled up for the next election.
For the rest, go to Charles Blow’s self-defeating column against Christianity | Denny Burk.
