  1. Here’s a story to add that needs to be picked up in the press: Warren Throckmorton’s entire blog has been deleted from Patheos with very little warning for very sketchy, vague reasons.

    I pointed out to Warren and John Fea on Twitter that Patheos+BeliefNet is now owned by Jay Sekulow and Co. — people to his fundraising and investment vehicles with shared ties to Dobson’s FoF, Pat Robertson, the NRA, the ACLJ, and other entities Throckmorton has criticized, including Sekulow who is “Trump’s lawyer.”

    All the old posts are restored now at wthrockmorton.com, but this is still a serious loss. Patheos has twice the reach of Christianity Today and a unique position at the lead of English-language religion and spirituality sites. The number of quality experts at Patheos like Warren — scholars and journalists — also makes this repressive action a significant negative.
