    Using hand picked sins of hand picked fathers to blurr or distract from the sins of contemporaries won’t fly — especially when those sins are isolated out of context and cherry picked from the annals of history to arrive at a preconceived and biased hypothesis. Legitimate historians should be pushing back strongly against this rigged, egregious revisionism. And shame on these liberal Christian bodies for using this methodology as a wedge or justification in pushing their revisionist (liberal) theology. God has not changed in all of history.

Isn’t that the call of the historic and contemporary church to bring sinners to Christ instead of engaging in secular politics?
