Over at Faith and the Common Good today, Greg Metzger congratulates Mark Tooley “for his extraordinary ability to read code words and translate them into their actual meaning.” They’re clashing over the Evangelicals for Peace Summit (for their active Facebook page, click here) that is being held this weekend at Georgetown University. Tooley sees the gathering as “determined to neutralize historically pro-national security evangelicals.” Metzger, a former editor at InterVarsity Press, wants to “gather with other followers of the One who blessed peacemakers and to pray for a more faithful witness to Him.” Who’s right? Well, that’s the difference between the religious right and the evangelical left.
If you’re in the D.C. area, head on over to Georgetown and send a report my way.

Thanks David. The conference was great. I wish I could claim to have been an editor at IVP, but I did do a lot of work in the marketing department there!
