Frank Schaeffer…

Orthodox Christian (?) advocates for protesting, Occupy Wall Street style, at churches. Read more here.

A blogger for The Huffington Post, young Schaeffer is now faulting religious conservatives for facilitating Wall Street greed. He’s imploring the Wall Street Occupiers to “protest the root source of America’s tilt to the far unregulated corporate right.” For Schaeffer, the next logical step is to demonstrate “outside mega churches, Evangelical publishing houses, [and] religious organizations that lead the ‘moral’ crusades against women and gays and all the rest.”

  1. The author seems to have an issue with the way Schaeffer characterizes the greater evangelical movement, calling his rhetoric ‘bile-tinged’. But 90% of this editorial is a retelling of Schaeffer’s points (rewritten to strip out the underlying logical framework) and hammed up with its own barely restrained contempt. There’s something someone said once about a pot and a kettle… I can’t recall.
