That may be, but he had some cogent comments in response to his "nemesis".

Ed: Such as? The only point I really agreed with was his swipe at Mohler's advocating Christian couples should have a passel of children when he and Mary have only two. I believe he does a disservice to true Liberation Theology. His comparison of the Civil rights movement of the 50, 60, and 70s in this country with the Gay communities struggle for acceptance at ALL levels is an insult to the blacks and others who benefited from the former yet oppose the latter. As far as Mohler's comments on the election it would suffice to say, Al was simply making an attempt to help some of political fans/friends not lose too much base between now and 2016.

It is well know by veterans of these boards that I am no fan of Al's. But all De LA Torre did in my opinion was to strengthen Mohler's platform among the Far Right.

Gay marriage aside

Postby Stephen Fox » Mon Nov 26, 2012 5:26 pm

I think Ed has a point but it begs the question. There is more to Mohler's agenda than resistance to gay marriage, though that is the sexxy topic that overwhelm all other concerns Mohler and his kind take down with it.

Mohler's takes down the enlightenment and all rationale on abortion. See Shorter College and School supe and District Judge in Dekalb County Alabama as example.

And here is something for folks other than Ed to Chew on; and I hope they engage this Mohler resistance
