Who could imagine Al Mohler oversimplifying R. Crumb?

Who else could? Al Mohler himself.

Crumb isn’t offering a substitute for Genesis, or pretending to. Nor is Crumb offering an object of worship. He has instead created a work of art in his medium of choice – comparable to Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ (Gibson, working in his medium of choice). But for all his quoting of Crumb, Mohler doesn’t seem to grasp that. He skips right along, without acknowledging the broader issues, to assert, it seems, that Crumb’s work contravenes the second commandment. Are we missing something here?
