According to an AOL report, Greg Boyd has lost 1000 members of his church because he has refused to promote conservative political causes.
According to the report, "he first became alarmed while visiting another megachurch's worship service on a Fourth of July years ago. The service finished with the chorus singing 'God Bless America' and a video of fighter jets flying over a hill silhouetted with crosses." Who wouldn't be alarmed at this Baalist conflation of God and country?
But what are the people in his church thinking? Boyd has been an advocate of open theism for some years, and apparently that bit of heresy was OK so long as he continued to endorse conservative politicians and promote a rightwing agenda. What God are these people really worshiping?
