Left Behind my arse!

Ron at Beatrice gives long-overdue props to Fred Clark's brilliant evisceration of the Left Behind books:

NYT columnist Nick Kristof hit a similar theme last November, criticizing Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins for the inherent bigotry of their apocalypse porn. But nobody I've seen has gone after these guys with the thoroughness of the Slacktivist. See for yourself, encourage him to do more--though the site itself is going great guns, the Left Behind well hasn't been touched for over a month--and if you're in the media, write about his work.

Hear, hear!

LaHaye's embarrassing responses to Kristof are also well-documented by Mr. Clark (who did a fantastic job at PRISM back in the day).
