rob schlapfer exits...

with a quote:

I like your Christ, but I do not like your Christians.
Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
Mahatma Gandhi

for a time, schlapfer was a 'mapper. i had the chance to get to know him a bit online in that context and in some direct emails. And a blarticle I wrote mentioning him prominently gets a lot of page views.

I, for one, will miss him.

God bless you, Rob.

What happened???? I know I stopped getting regular e-mails, etc. I loved the Discerning Reader and especially Christian Counterculture...

I'll miss these...

From the general tone of the last year, I'd say he was torn apart by that pack of wolves some call "The Church".

Very sad. His efforts were "first-order faithfulness", and I have no doubt that the Lord will bind his wounds and, following a season, send him into the wilderness of our culture again.

God's peace.

I agree with Fr'nklin.. what happened?

I was about to share one of the articles about homosexuality and I got Ghandi.... Sadly a great resource is gone.
