Lee Strobel, You Are Just Plain Stupid!
By John W. Loftus at 8/21/2010
I like Bishop John Shelby Spong. I've read a couple of his books more than a decade ago and they were eye-opening to me. He presents a superior case against Christian fundamentalism. Watch Spong in action below but take special note of how utterly stupid Lee Strobel is at the end. He merely repeats platitudes that Biblical scholars have long ago debunked. Sorry Lee but you are one ignorant man.
Loftus is one of those benighted individuals who's too self-absorbed to know he made a revealing statement when he makes it. Spong is just a hack who merely repeats platitudes by Fosdick, Harvey Cox, &c.
It shows what his real standards are, what passes for "scholarship" in his eyes, that Spong is a source of inspiration.
As for Strobel–it's true that he's just a popularizer. However, he interviews top scholars in the field.
And he himself has a law degree from Yale. So I seriously doubt he's just plain stupid.
Moreover, attacking Strobel makes no more sense than attacking Charlie Rose. It comes down to the guest, not the interviewer.
