  1. To me, the most interesting part of this report is this. The rest has been going on for decades, before the Scopes trials even.

    “Evangelicalism has a tendency to devour its young,” says Daniel Harlow, a religion professor at Calvin College, a Christian Reformed school that subscribes to the fall of Adam and Eve as a central part of its faith.

    “You get evangelicals who push the envelope, maybe; they get the courage to work in sensitive, difficult areas,” Harlow says. “And they get slapped down. They get fired or dismissed or pressured out.”

    *****

    Maybe the church will finally discover a way not to devour its young?
