Cathy caused a backlash when he said he supported marriage between a man and a woman. Gay groups announced boycotts, and Christian consumers rallied around the fast-food chain’s chicken sandwiches. In a recent interview, however, Cathy said that while he still holds the same position, he regrets “making the company a symbol in the marriage debate.” Similarly, when Phil Robertson was suspended from his popular reality TV show “Duck Dynasty” for making ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The titles mirror each other, too, featuring the same trio of names: Jesus, God, Bart Ehrman. On one of the volumes, “How Jesus Became God,” Ehrman is clearly the author; but in the reversed “How God Became Jesus,” Ehrman is the nemesis of a concerted rebuttal. So what gives?
