Random House isn't a Christian publisher.
Barber has it exactly backwards. An imprint is not a mask, it is a new brand which allows a publisher to print books that would otherwise damage the original brand. Barber calls Multnomah a 'long-trusted name in the world of Christian publishing'. This is exactly why a separate brand was created for the publishing of an alternate viewpoint or heretical texts, take your pick. This means that people who buy Multnomah books will continue to get what they have come to expect from that brand. Meanwhile Random House can make money (because they are a business) from these other books that are...whatever they are.
Two millennia of biblical scholars missed it but - praise the Lord - a guy named after a comic book character has discovered the truth; believing the Bible is the word of God is idolatry.
Or an alternative one built up to replace it. Competition will be hard but worthy; hard because we wouldn't be offering rage-against-The-Man-studies courses and the courses they teach that are strong they actually do well, worthy because real liberal arts, thoughtful poly-sci, and accurate history are vital to a nation's future well-being. I don't propose competing with a flaming conservative alternative but rather the kind of balanced university that holds to the spirit of free inquiry.
They will doubtless attempt to claim that you can't steal a free newspaper but this is despicable and cowardly.

By failing to 'conspicuously' oppose racism we leave ourselves open to being falsely accused of being racists. It doesn't matter how true it is if it sticks. That's not Kool-Aid bro, that's reality.
The Republican party is made up of two (if not more) competing factions one of which wishes freedom regardless of consequences and the other a more limited freedom so that people will make fewer wrong decisions. This is a fault line that can and will be exploited by the Democrats.
