Left Behind

As you'd expect, I've never read the books, but I thought this post by a liberal evangelical Christian on the Left Behind series was really neat.

As a sidenote, in David Velleman's ethics seminar a year ago, Huck Finn's choice was discussed in detail as we talked about Nomy Arpaly's Unprincipled Virtue, and I was in the "Huck! ohhhhyeah!" faction rather than in the "Noooo! Huck is a counterexample to my theory and must be eliminated!" faction. The part of Huck that wins out isn't the part that moral decision-making usually comes from, but it can still be responsible for morally right and rational decisions.
