Very little interaction with jerome on my part, but the little I've had left me with the same impression: that of a vague defense of belief for belief's sake, but not much conviction, & a tendency to abandon discussion. I'm mainly remembering a back-and-forth on the RDF about Jesus' alleged sacrifice. The brief dialogue ended when I asked him if, given that it was precisely planned, could Jesus actually have avoided his own death-sacrifice?
