Not even his Catholic supporters buy it any more.Really? I don't recall being asked my opinion. In fact, I seriously doubt that any of us were questioned about it - but maybe my unimportance has led to my being excluded. After all, who am I? No one of consequence. But if Dave is so contemptible in the eyes of Turretinfan and others, I can't help wondering why they don't just ignore him. It's not like there aren't other well-qualified Catholic apologists. Jimmy Akin comes to mind, or Karl Keating (or Catholic Answers generally), if they want a sparring partner.
As for me: scorn heaped upon someone that I respect is a lost cause if its purpose is to persuade me that I ought to return to the Protestant fold. I seriously doubt that I'm alone in feeling that way.
