What do you know? The latest iteration of Southern Baptist pretentiousness and moral squalor has captured the attention of Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker.

Moore’s words carry weight not least because he’s one of the most-respected evangelicals in the United States. His greatest sin seems to be that he often thinks, speaks and acts as a Christian.
