I have carefully read Taylor’s book. Taylor on subsequent interviews acknowledges his book is meant to be a starting point for investigation not an in-depth analysis for all points. Who will further the analysis? Those financially tied to Church establishments impacted by negative findings? This is not 2002. Additionally, ideas have consequences. Bad ideas have disastrous outcomes. The time for fence straddling has ended.
