Petersenís crowd is a bunch of Christians?   I donít think youíre reading the room very well.

While Petersenís take on religion is that it is a necessary cultural phenomenon (for lack of a better term), he never comes out and actually says that God is a real entity.   Thatís not a Christian perspective at all.  I think his fans are more about being non-PC, free-speech advocates than they are about being Christians.

I didn't suggest that Jordan's crowd are a bunch of Christians. They're more wannabe intellectuals than that, even though many are expectant Christians.
I think that Jordan offers an expectation for them that their faith can be plausible in the face of evidence that proves it just isn't. They think that Jordan's explaining, doubletalk, and hairsplitting  can make religous faith work.  But of course it never can.
It was believed afterward that the man was a lunatic, because there was no sense in what he said. ~M.T.
