    even going to speak there at all says more about his character than his decision to cancel his appearance. The cancellation is about his image, not his character.

    Sorry, Tim, you lose on both counts.

      He probably didn't even set up the booking himself, and even if he did he most likely didn't know Jeffress is such an a-hole. First Baptist Church of Dallas sounds like a fine, moderate, main stream sort of outfit; unless you know the details.

      Have to remember that he's just 25, and that church doesn't have the national reputation like the Westboro church does. I think it's completely possible that he agreed without knowing much about it at the time.

      He's doing the right thing now, that should be what counts.

        was sheltered a good bit of his life, homeschooled by zealous missionaries ..very Evangelical types around him his entire life except for college...and even in college, I am sure he spent his time with mostly the Evangelical kids at these Bible study groups on any campus.
