The Leader Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks

The President of InterVarsity has a lengthy response (of sorts) to Collin Hansen’s CT piece about InterVarsity and Roman Catholicism, which also deals with broader trends.

Hill says that he reread the piece “multiple times,” but apparently he missed this line:

(Efforts to contact InterVarsity staff at GWU were unsuccessful.)
