Today Throckmorton wondered which one of his posts crossed the line:
COULD IT BE THE NRA POST?
At present, I have no way to know for sure but I wonder about the influence of the NRA post. I have learned that the Chairman of BN Media (owner of Patheos) is Joe Gregory. Gregory is the chairman of the National Rifle Association Ring of Freedom donor recognition program. He and his wife are charter members of the Golden Ring of Freedom which means they have donated over $1 million to the NRA.
During the most recent NRA conference, Trump supporters Diamond and Silk claimed that the NRA “helped our ancestors to protect themselves from the Democratic party.” I countered that no evidence can be found to support that claim and called on the NRA to produce evidence or retract the claim.
Much of the interest on social media has focused on the fact that Mark Driscoll and Gospel for Asia CEO K.P. Yohannan are blogging at Patheos now while I am not. Apparently, the strategic objectives of Patheos include those fellows.

Some tweeters say we should “follow the money”:
Are there no “follow-the-money” Evangelical historians? 5 mins in corporate records on Bloomberg: BN Media = Patheos, Beliefnet, and Affinity4 which funds FoF and ACLJ. BN is controlled by Trump’s counsel Jay Sekulow (also chief counsel of ACLJ) and Joseph Gregory, among others.
