Carl Trueman comments on an aspect of the Dinesh D’Souza controversy that appears to have escaped the notice of many. He writes:
There is something terribly, horribly sleazy emerging in broadly reformed and evangelical quarters. As soon as your group, whether it be a conference or a coalition or a college, starts to be influenced in its choice of ‘leader’ or keynote speaker by the chosen one’s ability to command serious media attention or simply fill that stadium, you have Corinthian Christianity and you are heading for disaster. When we are talking upper six and seven figure salaries for those involved in ostensibly Christian work…we are heading into territory previously occupied by the televangelists and the prosperity hucksters.
