The Jesus Seminar and inclusion of conservative Christian scholars

The Jesus seminar invited ALL scholars to participate INCLUDING CONSERVATIVE SCHOLARS.

I quote john Dominic Crossan in this interview "We asked ANYONE who was interested in the New Testament involving Jesus" & "If literalists or fundamentalists wanted to come there and defend their position they could. They would not be ostracised in anyway. They may be voted down."

So much for the diatribe by conservatives that conservative scholars were never invited!
