"scholarly smackdown"

ok, so i still haven't seen the passion of the christ. sue me. but on your way to the courthouse, check out theological pugilists john dominic crossan and ben witherington iii going @ it about the theology behind the movie and its effects on society in a debate entitled (sadly) "scholarly smackdown". it's interesting to note that crossan here puts in print a quote once attributed to him by my rector @ christ church. fr. liias quoted crossan as saying: "i consider the doctrine of vicarious atonement to be transcendental child abuse, and i'll not have it!" fr. liias' cheeky (and very sarcastic) reply: "john dominic crossan . . . good for you." can you tell whose side i'm on??
