Comment of the Year Award

Anonymous said…

tony you have quite a following of
groupies who like to post on your site. they all appear to be unemployable superheros, thus allowing for them to save the world one hatefilled blog comment at a time. They are posting so much it’s becoming background noise for your blog. It’s a become predictable formula.

First invent a name.
Harry, Bill or Carla will do.

Then they spew more gas and crap than the irritable bowel all-you-can-eat chili cookoff and campout.

then they cap it off with a bogus URL..

IT’S FREAKING HILARIOUS!!!
and oh so creative… it’s making me rethink all of my understandings about God.

If they’d only do this in spanish.

    Tony, that’s a trip! I just want to say that I appreciate your heart, passion, and pursuit of truth through all of this. I was just reading the previous posting, and all the wonderfully “helpful” comments some were leaving and just want you to know that there are still some of us out there with you who are excited to see what you’re coming up with! Keep up the great work and have a wonderful Christmas!

    Hey, wait a minute… how do we know it was really you, Monseur Mark?! You can’t suddenly step forward and take credit for a post simply because the anonymous poster left YOUR LAST NAME at the bottom of it! Part of what makes that comment so incredible is the irony that, no this person wasn’t so shallow as to make up a false name and url–This person posted as “anonymous” and then signed the post “Riddle,” as if saying “Riddle me this, Riddle me that, who can unveil the true kool kat?”Just because your last name simply HAPPENS to be “Riddle” doesn’t mean you can lay claim to a mysterious post to which Tony gave an award! So if you didn’t write the comment, don’t lie… and if you did, I vote you off for naming yourself, thus ruining the mysterious nature of signing a post that begins “Anonyomous said” with “Riddle”!*(Please note extreme sarcasm)

    how can you tame the beautiful… how can you put in a box and sell it… in all seriousness. emergent is basically deconstruction and epistemology based on pomo philosophy. emergent the meaning of it… not the organization… is something that is going to be in the margins nomadic… and always moving. But emergent is going to be used by greedy pastors and people in charge of IC to revive their dying churches … but true transformation…is going to be done by artists and people who are outside of church.say hello to Brian Mclaren for me.. I think he knows me as the crazy kid with the T-shirt on with his face from G.O.

    In an attempt to broaden the conversation, I have pasted a portion of my thoughts here from the blog “Emergent Theological Conversation”What an appropriate book (Miroslav Volf’s Exclusion and Embrace) for an emergent theological conversation! Tony, you should point all of your antagonists to this site and especially this book. The point, I think of emergent ambiguity (and one of the points of Volf’s book) is not to construct a rigid identity that restricts the embrace of others. When we start laying down broad-sweeping dogma, we do not make space for others, space that allows us to be changed by them. And, though justice is essential, “will justice ever be done if the ultimate goal is not reconciliation?” (Volf, 105)………………………………
