    Sadly, Nick, your indictment of youth ministries in Christian denominations also matches with my experience growing up Jewish.

    A lot of legalists of this stripe are really just thinly veiled narcissistic misogynists. Essentially, they argue that if a woman isn't interested in their "specialness" and "devotion to Christ,"...

    Sam Harris' view is basically eliminativist, just like the Churchlands and Daniel Dennett. There are some major issues with eliminativism, including the fact that it argues in a circular fashion. In...

    Ignoring Richard Carrier (who will always remind us of his PhD), there's Robert Price (IMO much closer to Bultmann than mythicism) and Thomas Brodie.

    If it's the 1984 book, no, it's not pre-NPP. NPP started in the late 70s with Wright, Sanders, and Dunn, though there had been a few precursors in the 1960s.

    National Review had a good article today about how most abortion arguments rely upon Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which is why the screeching over Roe is ridiculous. It's worth a read.

    Yes, this is true. The difference is that Francis has been accused by bishops in communion with the Church, rather than splinter groups or internet kooks.
