Warren Throckmorton Says More About His Ousting at Patheos

ThrockThe powers-that-be at the religion website Patheos have ended their relationship with evangelical blogger Warren Throckmorton.  We did a post on this yesterday.

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.

OTHER POSSIBILITIES

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.

Ponder that.

Some tweeters say we should “follow the money”:

One thought on “Warren Throckmorton Says More About His Ousting at Patheos

  1. Er, hi, the connections of BN Media (new owners of Patheos) with the NRA and the extreme and homophobic Christian Right is why a lot of Pagan bloggers, including me, left Patheos.
