I’d like to take a moment to admit I was wrong.
A few days ago, I was in a sour mood. I had not had a whole lot of sleep because I was up for the past few nights working on homework and also on a paper for submission (regarding Ehrman’s recent book). As a consequence I was irritable. And in my disposition, which was not at all becoming, I said some things which I should not have; I was unnecessarily cruel and unfair. Some of what I said was just incorrect (I stated that she was ‘mediocre’ as a scholar and that is false. Her work has been quite important.).
So I’d like to publicly apologize to Steph Fisher.
She may not accept it, and perhaps I deserve that. But a few days removed from the situation, I feel extremely bad about it. I did just what I criticize others of doing; I brought emotion into a discussion and I frankly that was a mistake. I used to be a friend to Steph and, though I am not sure entirely why it happened, we have steadily grown to dislike each other. I wish that were not the case. I hope that one day the burnt bridges that divide us now can be repaired.
