The Weekly Standard’s "Post-Modern Prophet"Blog — By BWC on June 1, 2009 at 12:56 pm
On Friday, The Weekly Standard ran a piece on Don Miller, calling him the post-modern prophet and “the Evangelical Left’s poster boy,” along with soggy host of other epithets.
“Miller’s implied comfort with same-sex marriage and seeming apathy about pro-life causes would have upset one-time Religious Right icon Bill Bright, the late founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, the international college ministry that elevated Miller to best-selling author by distributing Blue Like Jazz to thousands of college freshmen. Bright, like other old-line evangelicals, might also have been discomfited with Miller’s casual references to profanity, liquor, sexuality and marijuana in his spiritual odyssey.”
I’m sure Campus Crusade would take it all back if they could!
I love how researched this article is. Miller has “implied comfort with same-sex marriage” and “seeming apathy about pro-life causes”. It’s also possible he hangs out with O.J. Simpson on a regular basis.
Oh, and apparently Don “attends a socially conscious church in Seattle”. That’s quite a Sunday morning commute! You’ll have to forgive Mark Tooley and The Weekly Standard‘s fact-checking team. To them, all those hippie towns are the same.
Also, we get a mention. Time to tick “Appear on the pages of The Weekly Standard” off my list of goals.
