  1. I’m falling in line with Hemant Mehta’s conclusion.
    I’ve never been a follower of Cox. I prefer “progressive” writers with a different style. I’m glad she got a warmer reception than she expected, though. Not surprised. I think there is a real demand for “progressive” Christians in the media. Perhaps her disclosure will inspire others of like mind and spirit to be a little more demonstrative within the “progressive” sphere. (I use all the quotes here not to be demeaning but because I’m never quite sure what small P “progressive” means anymore.)
