When Christians get angry

I stumbled on this site today and it's mighty entertaining. I just wish I could figure out exactly what the spat is about. All I can discern is that Frank Vance, whereabouts unknown, has a little blog on which he has been cracking skulls at Ligonier Minstries, a Lake Mary publisher/producer of religious books and broadcasts. Vance is mighty steamed about something relating to Ligonier, its president, Timothy Dick, and its minister/chairman Dr. Robert C. Sproul. I e-mailed Frank to get to the bottom of this thing, so updates as they are warranted.

What's fascinating is that this imbroglio ended up in the pages of USA Today as a bullet point in a story about how bloggers are increasingly being sued by people they criticize. Ligonier tried to silence Vance with such a lawsuit but â?? get this â?? dropped their suit when their private detective couldn't find him!

And it gets better. Vance is still out there, taunting Ligonier and posting their tax returns. What he's really pissed about is the fact that one Christian (Dick) is suing another (himself) in violation of 1 Corinthians 6: "Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?" In other words, this whole matter should be taken up in Jesus court.

And people say Central Florida is boring.
