  •  He has not gotten his proper comeuppance (10+ / 0-)

    A few have asked a few questions, and raised a few challenges, but he's still going strong, and no sign of slowing down.

      You are correct, he hasn't gotten what he deserves. Yet. And maybe he never will; he's pretty well loved by certain sections of the far right evangelical/neo-Pente/neo-charismatic community. Those folks don't let little things like facts get in the way of the things they really, really want to believe. He'll likely always have a home amongst that group.

      But if a big enough outcry over his lies and bad scholarship can get a big enough share of the news, then maybe the only publisher that will be willing to publish his books will be Bob Jones University Press. And they're welcome to him, as far as I'm concerned. Birds of a feather, and all that.
