Eugene Peterson Clarifies and Recants
Eugene Peterson affirms biblical marriage after all, according to this article.
“To clarify, I affirm a biblical view of marriage: one man to one woman. I affirm a biblical view of everything,” he said in a statement Thursday afternoon.”
Based on my knowledge of Peterson, I suspected that the old sage had been blindsided by a reporter with an agenda.
This clarification won’t go far enough for some, especially those who “saw this coming” and spilled much ink and bile writing about it over the last 24 hours.
A long and illustrious career of serving the people of God has been sullied in the eyes of many.
As Swift once said; “falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it”…
We’ll miss you, Eugene…but you undoubtedly see the wisdom of retirement at this point…
