I must respectfully disagree with Douglas on this point. He offers
congratulations too soon. I checked the SPLC's web site, and we have

item page):

Raul Sanchez and Doug Wilson have very different views on slavery.

The two perspectives will clash early next year when Wilson and Louisiana 
minister Steve Wilkins arrive on the University of Idaho campus.

Wilson and Wilkins co-authored the booklet, "Southern Slavery, As It Was,"
