Moral and Pastoral?
I am laughing myself silly at Harry's Place, which would ordinarily be screaming blue murder that the Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology at Oxford was now someone like Nigel Biggar.
An Anglican clergyman, but who belongs more to the world of American fundamentalism, he is merrily plugging a book that could have been written by John Hagee or Pat Robertson, and which has very much been written for their audience rather than for British Evangelicals, who are by and large a very different lot indeed politically.
But in so plugging, Professor Biggar continues to defend the Iraq War. So, he must be all right, really.
