John Brummett, a lapsed Church of Christ member himself, wades into the case
of Mark Elrod
, the Obama-endorsing Harding prof, who took his popular blog private recently on account of the discord his writing had begun to generate. He admires Elrod (the C of C not so much) and offers a tempered word of praise for Harding administrators. He reserves his main criticism for the binary, black/white, good/evil commenters who drove Elrod underground.
