Protest at Appointment of N.T. Wright to St. Andrews
The Scottish Sun and the Scotsman both report a Glaswegian Episcopal Priest protesting the appointment of Bishop N.T. Wright to a Professorship at St. Andrews University for his opposition to gay ordination (HT: James Crossley).
There are two ironies here:
(1) In the USA Tom Wright is regarded in some circles as the greatest threat to orthodoxy since Marcion, yet in the UK he's chastised as a traditionalist and no one gives a flying donut roll about his views of Paul.
(2) The liberal left is, well, not really liberal (i.e. generous). They talk and cry about "inclusiveness", "diversity", and "tolerance" which is their gospel, and yet they are not willing to include those who have a different vision of human sexuality, ethics, and religion than they do! And yet they have the gall to call evangelical Christians hypocrites.
