The end of the year is a great time to think back over all the American human race has accomplished. There will be no shortage of retrospectives across the Internet: Celebrity deaths, strangest letters to Dear Prudence, best Longform reads, top Christian songs. Tomorrow, I’ll share a retrospective of my own in the form of some […]

  • Matthew Goddard

    I don’t know much about Mr. D’Souza, but I know that this is a mean, ugly little post.

  • Carl Fant

    Laura why are you doing this? So we have learned Dinesh likes fake Christmas trees and oh, by the way, he is also an adulterer.

    Who would ever want to embrace the faith of people who do this to one another?

    When you compile your list of Christian fails for next year, don’t forget to slip this article in the file as well.

    Galatians 6:1

    @ Matthew and Carl: Evidently you aren’t very up-to-date on Dinesh D’Souza. Do a bit more reading and then come back and see us.

  • Carl Fant

    Just curious Daniel. How much more ‘up-to-date’ information do we need to know about Mr. D’Souza that would make this piece appropriate from a Christian perspective? How much disapproval or disagreement do we have to compile on another Christian that would justify putting them on a public spit and dining on their failures and brokenness?

  • wyclif

    Wait, what? D’Souza goes to a conference where he’s shacked up in a hotel room with a woman who is not his wife, and Laura did that to him?

    I’m a bit confused, Carl. Are you suggesting it’s somehow not proper for Christians to call out hypocrisy, even when it is found among our own?

  • Marcus

    I am fully acquainted with Mr. D’Souza’s life and work, and I still agree with Carl & Matthew. This article is disappointing and disheartening. I’ve never read Ms. Turner’s blog before, but it is obvious she is not a Christian, whatever she may profess.

  • BmoreSara

    I’m not certain that Laura is “writing as a Christian.” RNS is not a Christian apologist site and does not exist to encourage people to “embrace the faith.” Perhaps she is simply writing as an observer of the intersection of culture and the Christian community.

  • Marcus

    Sara- you are correct and I was wrong to assume Ms. Turner is a Christian. According to her own bio, she is simply a “church culture enthusiast.” That explains much.

    Dinesh D’Souza was indicted on federal charges today for illegal campaign contributions. He has been exposed as a corrupt scumbag and rightwingnutcase. That’s all you need to know about his truth-challenged books and movies.
