love does NOT win (not without a fight, anyway)

People ask me why I get so pissed off about Rob Bell. I’m not sure I have a good answer to that question . . .but I really like this particular post. Especially the guy he quotes towards the bottom (here’s the whole article if you’re feeling ambitious)
