It is the belief in absolute and God-given morality, and so the existence of sin, that is destructive.

And that, in a nutshell, is kind of the point of the article in the first place.

On the issue of who is a true Christian and who isn't, the measure has already been well established by Richard's article and Paula's (among others) accurate and erudite musings on the subject. Now we are haggling about the degree to which these believers actually believe all these stories to be true, which to discount and whether they provide a model to emulate. Some (Robertson)clearly will be more robust than others, while many "enlightened" Christians will allow modern sensibilities to intrude on and mould their beliefs. Either way (robust or enlightened) it's still based on the same nonsensical thinking and impossible scenarios.
