Frank Beckwith Defects

Hi all,


In case you haven't heard, Frank Beckwith, christian philosopher, apologist, and (now) former President of the Evangelical Theological Society, recently "defected" and re-converted to Roman Catholocism -- *during his tenure as President of the ETS*!!! You can read his blog post about it, and the (500) comments, here.
That, of course, must seem to many to be quite a blow to the credibility of evangelical theology. It's instructive to read his reasons for defecting, as well as the many horrible things people said about him in the comments (and lots of evangelical blogs out there). Basically, the underlying tone of most of the evangelical comments is, more or less, 'fuck you' -- including some from some *evangelical pastors*, I might add.

Thanks for the heads up on this. Many evangelicals hate us defectors no matter what we defect to.
