The Former President of Chicago Theological Seminary is Really This Stupid?

Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, current faculty member and former president of the Chicago Theological Seminary,(don’t laugh yet), doesn’t think much of Catholic bishops expressing opposition to gay marriage, and she said so recently at some length in the “On Faith” (trust me that is a misnomer) blog at the Washington post. Christopher Johnson at Midwest Conservative Journal is a Protestant who takes up the cudgels in defense of the Church so often that I have named him Defender of the Faith, gives her a fisking to remember:

– from Donald R. McClarey, The American Catholic

Dear Mr. McClarey,

You are right — Mr. Johnson over at Midwest Conservative Journal is a great read and I just added him (and you) to my blogroll. His “fisking” of Thistlethwaite is absolutely fantastic but I have to admit that it is just plain depressing that the Washinton Post editors thought this article worthy of publication and that this is a woman, as one of your commenters pointed out, who has an “honored position on a theological faculty.” In other words, she represents the elite — and the elite (or at least some portion of them) are stupid and intellectually bankrupt.
