I have long suspected that Eric Metaxas is two parts politician, three parts marketing guru and one part evangelical Christian. A toxic mix. Now, he has noisily quit an evangelical group committed to immigration reform because he believes, apparently erroneously, that the group took money from George Soros. There are a couple of stories in the Scriptures about those who were scandalized when the Lord ate with tax collectors and sinners. Evidently, Metaxas' commitment to the principle of immigration reform cannot stand any association with Soros, or imagined association with Soros. Everytime I hear about this Metaxas fellow, I like him less and less.
