good job by him.
like slavery and anti-semitism, christians have to bend over backward to make this fit into their interpretation of the bible, because logically, it is indefensible.
unfortunately, logic won't change their minds. when they get to the point where their logic fails, they resort to "faith," which is to say, i have no answer to that so i'm just going to trust that god knows what he's doing.
it's going to take a helluva lotta moderate christians, those who don't fully subscribe to literalism, to turn this thing around.
