4 reactions to Joshua Butler's resignation as pastor of Arizona church

Religion writer Rick Pidcock defended Butler by instead questioning The Gospel Coalition, which initially published Butler’s book excerpt, for backing the book in the first place.

He tweeted: "I agree with Josh Butler's defenders on this. He didn't deserve to lose his position with The Keller Center and The Gospel Coalition because what he wrote was perfectly consistent with their theology."


Pidcock also called out TGC for its Amazon reviews billing the book as "the Protestant magnum opus on sexual ethics we’ve been waiting for." 

He tweeted: "Even though what he wrote was messed up, it's perfectly consistent with the messed up gospel of TGC. And nobody should have to leave for writing something that's perfectly consistent with and celebrated by their publisher."
