Porn Sells

Even in Christian Bookshops. Not directly, I’m sure, and probably not under the counter in brown paper bags either,  though I’m told that when Alan Mann & Steve Chalke’s book The Lost Message of Jesus began to attract controversy, some Christian Bookshops resorted to such measures. Christians are, indeed, a very peculiar people.

Two things I am sure about, however: as John Buckeridge says in his editorial, keeping silent about this issue doesn’t help anyone; and this post will attract more spammers as well as more genuine traffic than most others so far…
